Dental Implants Treatment
Dental Implants are an ideal treatment option to replace missing teeth. Our dentists are experts in dental implant surgery, providing high quality, lifelike implants that look and feel great.
We offer the technologically advanced computer guided implant treatment for more accurate placement of implants using a minimally invasive procedure.
Unlike with dentures which are a removable treatment option, dental implants are permanent. Implants can be used to replace one or many teeth within the jaw.
Our Process for Dental Implants:
The procedure involves using tooth roots made of titanium to which a dental crown is attached. These metallic anchors act as root substitutes, which are surgically placed into the jawbone; the bone then fuses with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth.
Small posts called abutments are then attached to the implant which in turn supports the implant crown. Dental implants can be used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth.
Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing bone loss, which occurs when teeth are missing for extended period of time.
Step 1 - A 3D X-Ray of Your Teeth & Jaw
Our highly experienced implant dentists use 3D X-rays to determine how much bone is available for the keyhole placement of your dental implants. For this reason, our practice is equipped with the latest 3D Cone Beam X-ray technology so you have the convenience of doing your x-rays in-house, without the need to travel into the city. Insurance rebates are also applied to all x-rays making the cost much cheaper for 3D x-rays done in-house by our friendly and caring team.
At Hillier Road Dental & Implant Centre, your dental implants are made using the best quality material at local Australian labs to ensure the highest standard of care. We make use of the latest in guided implant placement technology to ensure the most accurate placement of implants.
Step 2 - How We Digitally Plan Dental Implant and Provide Treatment
