Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Thinking about dental implants? If left untreated, missing teeth can cause long-term oral health problems including a shrinking jaw bone and receding gums, damage to neighbouring teeth and it can increase your risk of gum disease.

Dental implants are usually made from titanium and acts as an artificial tooth, with an attached screw which is placed into the jawbone to keep the tooth in place (like a tooth root).

At Sydney Dental Aesthetics & Implants (SDAI) in Sydney Martin Place, Practice Principal Dr Dean Licenblat is also one of the few dentists placing completely metal free zirconia implants.

Unlike dentures, implants do not come with the risk of moving as they are permanently fixed into your mouth.

Who is eligible for dental implants?

Most adults are eligible to have dental implants. It is important that the patient’s bone tissue has fully developed.

For the implants to work effectively, adult patients should be in general good health and have healthy gums already.

The highly experienced and skilled team at SDAI will carry out a full evaluation of your teeth and health prior to any treatment commencing.

Some factors that may deter a dentist from offering implants is if the patient:

  • is a smoker
  • has had radiotherapy to their jaw area
  • has diabetes which isn’t well-controlled
  • suffers from gum disease

Each case is different, and if your dentist does not think implants are suitable for you, they will be able to advise you on an alternative and more appropriate option.

At SDAI we utilise the latest and most advanced technology to ensure the most effective, streamlined procedures.
