Dental implants

Improve your mouth’s function and your confidence with dental implants

Losing a tooth can be a very stressful and emotional event. At The Dentist, we do everything we can to prevent this from happening to you. When we can’t avoid an extraction, or where you may be missing a tooth from childhood, rest assured that it does not mean you have to learn to chew with fewer teeth or smile with a ‘gappy’ smile. We can replace your missing tooth- there are a few options for you and it’s best your have a chat with our Dentist to see which option suits your situation. One of the options is to fill the gap with a dental implant, or a ‘bionic tooth’. 

Everybody and every tooth is different we need to asses you and go over the risks and limitations of all the options available to you as implants are not necessarily appropriate for all patients. Once you understand your options you will be able to make the right choice for you. With all surgery, implant placement is not without its risk and limitations. If you have questions let us know as the more you know the more control you will have over what you want to do. We encourage all our patients to seek a specialist second opinion – we work alongside some of Sydney’s most lovely and caring specialists.


One of the best restorative treatment that dentistry has to offer 

Dental implants are a great advancement in dentistry. They have an impressive track record of over 40 years and are now a routine restorative treatment at The Dentist, it is important that you attend for a consultation to discuss what options may be best for you and your missing tooth. We work beside the specialists to place the implant screw and we place the implant crown.  Implant treatment involves two separate stages:

    Surgical stage: Placement of the titanium fixture into the toothless space. This stage may require two to four visits. We currently engage a specialist Periodontal Surgeon for this stage of treatment. At the end of this stage, the fixture is invisible or barely visible in the mouth.

  Restorative stage: Placement of a crown over the fixture. This stage requires two visits and is done at The Dentist. At the end of this stage, the toothless space is filled with a natural-looking tooth.
