Replacing teeth and restoring smiles

Dental implants are generally considered to be the gold standard when it comes to restoring a beautiful smile. If you are missing teeth or looking for an alternative to dentures, a dental implant may be a good solution to restore the look and feel of a set of fully-functioning teeth. At Toowoomba Specialist Dental, our Prosthodontists have decades of experience performing dental implant procedures on varied and complex cases.

Dental Implant Treatments

What is a Dental Implant?

Each dental implant consists of a titanium root and an artificial tooth which replaces the entire structure of your missing tooth. Over time, the implant becomes a permanent part of your mouth and unlike traditional dentures, they do not move or slip along the gums.

Dental implants can be single implants (one implant per tooth), implant bridges to replace several adjacent teeth, or All-On-4: a full set of top or bottom teeth using just four implants for each arch.

Advantages of Dental Implants

Implants, with their secure fit and natural appearance, can help patients living with tooth-loss achieve a beautiful smile.
Dental implants don’t shift or slip like dentures, so you’ll experience natural chewing and speech, allowing you to eat all of your favourite foods without worry.
With proper care, dental implants can and should last a lifetime. They should be taken care of just like regular teeth with twice daily brushing, daily flossing and regular dental check-ups.

All-On-4

All-On-4 is an innovative, advanced dentures technique that uses just four implant posts to attach a new set of replacement top or bottom teeth (or both) to the jawbone. Having fewer implants significantly reduces the overall treatment time, recovery time and cost.
All-On-4 is most suitable for patients that are lacking all of their teeth on one or both arches or are soon to have all of their teeth extracted. Our specialist prosthodontists are highly skilled in delivering exceptional All-On-4 treatments to adults of all ages.

Are Dental Implants right for you?

The ideal candidate for dental implants is an adult patient with missing teeth, generally good oral health and adequate bone support for the implants to fuse with.
