Are you not satisfied with the aesthetics and fit of your removable dentures? Restore complete dental function and optimal smile with dental implants Nowra.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the ultimate, most durable, and aesthetically pleasing alternative for missing natural teeth. As a result, dental implants have become the most sought-after tooth replacement option worldwide. According to statistics, over 108,399 implant procedures were performed in Australia in 2022 alone for tooth replacement. 

According to the Australian Dental Association, an implant is a root-shaped metal fixture inserted into the jawbone to restore one or more missing teeth. Once inserted, dental implants bone formation around them and become firmly fused within the jawbone. As a result, an implant provides a robust foundation for any prosthesis attached to it for tooth replacement.

Who Can Benefit from Dental Implants?

Whether you have a single, many, or all teeth missing in your jaw, you can get them replaced with dental implants and enjoy complete dental function with optimised facial aesthetics. For example, if you have a single missing tooth, your dentist will replace it with a crown supported by an implant. For multiple missing teeth, an implant-retained bridge or an overdenture can be used. Finally, if someone has lost all their teeth, they can get an all-on-4 implant-supported complete fixed bridge to replace their teeth.

What is the Procedure for Getting Dental Implants?

Tooth replacement with dental implants is carried out in different steps, involving minor surgeries and diagnostic/ radiographic tests.

  • Clinical Examination and Customised Treatment Planning – during your first appointment, our best dentist in Nowra will perform a detailed dental examination to assess the number and location of your missing teeth. They will also look at the radiographs of digital models of your teeth to decide the best treatment option for you. After careful evaluation, cosmetic dentist Nowra will prepare a customised treatment plan that caters for your treatment needs. 
  • Implant Placement – at the next appointment, our implant dentist in Nowra will perform minor surgery to insert the implants within the jawbone at pre-determined positions. First, they will administer local anaesthesia to make you pain-free and relaxed. Next, they will make an incision over the soft tissues overlying the bone where implant insertion is planned. Afterwards, they will make a hole in the bone and carefully screw in the implant. 
  • The Healing Phase – the implant site is left untouched to ensure uninterrupted healing. During this time, bone tissue forms around the implant and firmly anchors it. 
  • Implant Loading – once the implant becomes fully anchored and stable in the jawbone, our dentist in Nowra will attach a suitable prosthesis over it, depending on the number of missing teeth.   

That’s it! Your missing teeth have been replaced with dental implants. Enjoy your brand-new smile. 

Why Choose Dental Implants?

If you’re unsure whether you should consider dental implants Nowra, here are some of their benefits that will you decide in their favour:

  • Durability – dental implants are extremely durable. With proper aftercare, dental implants can even last a lifetime. 
  • Aesthetics – our implant dentist in Nowra will attach aesthetically pleasing zirconia crowns over your implants that will restore your smile and facial aesthetics. 
  • Restoration of Dental Function – dental implants are embedded into the jawbone just like natural teeth. Therefore, they completely restore one’s ability to eat all their favourite foods. 

Jawbone Conservation –  a drawback of removable dentures is that they exert pressure on the underlying bone causing unwanted bone loss and changes in facial profile. On the other hand, dental implants don’t have this drawback. Instead, they promote bone formation and conserve optimal jawbone density.

We're here to answer your questions about dental implants

Our highly experienced Nowra dental team are committed to compromised care. So, when it comes to replacing your missing teeth, we suggest the same treatment we would want for our own smiles: dental implants.

Implants are biocompatible titanium rods that are about the same width and length of a natural tooth root. When we set them into your bone, your body fuses with them and the implant becomes a permanent part of your smile.

When you take a book off the shelf, what happens to the books on either side? They tilt! It’s the same with your smile. A missing tooth causes changes in your overall bite, but it also places you at risk for bone loss, gum disease, and irregular tooth wear.

To prevent these unwanted side-effects, it’s best to replace your tooth with an implant as soon as possible. It’s also a great way to start your Smile Makeover!

Dental implant treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that doesn’t alter the adjacent teeth. It can be completed with local anaesthetic, so it’s almost easier than having a tooth taken out.
Implants are extremely durable. Although we can use individual implants with crowns for single missing teeth, it’s also possible to use pairs of implants for multi-tooth restorations, such as bridges. As few as four implants can potentially anchor a full-arch upper or lower prosthesis.

Our Nowra dentists will fully evaluate your mouth to determine if dental implants are appropriate. Today’s modern designs are ideal for anyone who is healthy and has enough bone support. However, implants are best for adults over the age of 18; not children whose smiles are still developing.

Whether it be teeth straightening, replacing lost teeth or complete mouth and oral rejuvenation, your team at South Coast Dentists can help.

Our dentist in Nowra recommends waiting for 4 – 6 months before getting implants. This will allow sufficient time for the surgical site to heal properly, and ensure the availability of sufficient bone tissue to support the implant.

At South Coast Dentists, which is undoubtedly the best implant dental clinic in Nowra, a single implant will cost you around $4500. If a lump sum payment is not affordable, we encourage you to get in touch with us to know about our flexible and affordable payment plans.

The entire procedure for getting dental implants is around 6 – 8 months. However, this wait will be certainly worthwhile as you will enjoy a brand-new smile and a fully functional set of teeth.
