Dental Implants in Caboolture
Sandstone Point Dental is available for all your implant needs – from the initial consult, to the surgery, to finishing with the tooth coloured crown that will replace your missing tooth.
A dental implant is often the best solution to replace your missing tooth. They are fixed in your mouth, so unlike a denture, they won’t move when you talk, eat or smile. Another advantage of a dental implant is that they do not require any further work on surrounding teeth, unlike bridges or dentures.
Dental implants look extremely natural – most patients won’t be able to tell the difference between a dental implant and crown compared to their natural teeth!
Dental implants are usually placed in two stages. In the first stage, a sterile titanium fixture is placed in the jaw bone. After this, there is usually a small period of waiting while the bone around the implant “hugs” onto the implant to fix it firmly in the jaw bone. Once our dentists are satisfied that the implant is stable in the bone, they will then place a naturally looking, tooth coloured crown (or “cap”) over the implant. For this stage, our dentists will only use local labs to construct your crown, no work will be sent overseas.
Implants can also be constructed to stabilise a denture in patients that are missing all of their teeth. This results in a more stable denture, and can fix the problem of loose fitting dentures, painful dentures and dentures that constantly have food caught underneath them during or after meals.
