Dental Implants in Essendon: Smile with confidence with quality tooth implants from Dental Essence
At our dental clinic in Essendon, we want you to feel calm and confident with any of our cosmetic dentistry services. Dental Essence provides teeth implants that are indistinguishable from your real teeth, and we treat each patient with the highest degree of care.
Teeth implants look so natural these days due in part to the structural and functional connection between the odontic implant and the living bone. A tooth implant dentist can typically place dental implants in a single sitting, but they require a period of osseointegration (i.e. is the process by which the dental implant fuses to the jaw bone). The new generation of dental implants takes only 2 months to osseointegrate, whereas older generation implants took up to 6 months to fuse.

As teeth implants involve surgery, you require a consultation with a tooth implant dentist to determine if you are suitable. Several medical and lifestyle conditions can result in a higher implant failure rate. These may include:
Immune compromised patients have a higher potential for implant failure as they are more prone to infection.
Patients whose bones are still growing should not have implants placed as they will ‘sink’ into the gums as the rest of the bone grows.
The dental implant is made of Titanium, with much of the surface-modified to enable faster osseointegration. Roughened grooves, sandblasting and etching results in more bone interlocking and quicker osseointegration.
The advantage of the dental implant is that it is conservative of tooth structure. Unlike the bridge, the adjacent teeth are not cut. The dental implant, however, takes time to osseointegrate. There are certain cases where you can place an implant and have a tooth restored straight away. And if bone grafting is required, it can take up to 6 months for the proper bone to form before the implant is placed in.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before any procedure, we will inform you of those risks by way of written informed consent documentation. Individual results may vary. You should seek a second opinion by a qualified health professional.
