Dental Implant

Dental Implants Williams Landing

What is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant replaces the root or roots of a tooth that has been removed. The implant is surgically placed in the jawbone (therefore it is not visible in the mouth) and a crown is then secured to the implant (which is the part that is visible in the mouth).

What is a Dental Implant made of?

The dental implant is made of Titanium, which is lightweight, strong and biocompatible.

How does the Dental Implant work?

Once a dental implant is surgically placed into the jawbone, it fuses itself to the remaining bone. Placing a dental implant into the space where a tooth has been removed stabilises the bone, preventing more bone loss in that area. By placing a dental implant you are maintaining the space of the original tooth, while maintaining your jawbone shape and density.

Am I a Candidate for a Dental Implant?

Anyone who has had a tooth removed may be a candidate for a dental implant, provided they are not immune-compromised i.e. undergoing chemotherapy/radiation treatment. Generally, if you are in good health you are likely to be a candidate for a dental implant.

Do I need x-rays before the procedure?

Yes, before any dental implant surgery is undertaken you will be required to undergo a series of dental x-rays and 3D/CT scans. Some study models will also be required to assess your bite. This is an essential part of knowing the exact position in the bone to place the implant.

Dear Patients,

In accordance with the recent announcement of the decreased restrictions associated with the Coronavirus outbreak, general dental practice being an essential service will remain open for business as all  restrictions have now been lifted.   

We are screening all patients for symptoms who attend our clinic. Along with our routine high standard infection-control protocols, we will be implementing further precautions among which are single-use gowns for treating staff.

We ask that all of our patients assist us in keeping Williams Landing Dental Clinic Coronavirus-free by not attending the clinic if you are suffering any symptoms which may be associated with the Coronavirus or if you are in self isolation due to risk of contact with the virus.

So that we can ensure your appointments are organised to be as safe for you as well as complying with our government’s strict social distancing regulations, we ask that you please call the clinic from your car to inform us that you are here.

Although we will always try to be on time for your appointments, in instances where this is not possible and there may be a slight wait, we ask that you remain waiting in the car until we call to let you know that we are ready for you to come up. We would also kindly ask that you minimise the amount of people you bring with you to your appointment to reduce the amount of traffic through the clinic.

Our new policies and procedures do take time and have been put in place to minimise the risks to our patients, their families and our staff so please be patient and kind during this period.

Please feel free to contact the clinic with any queries you may have with the recent change.

We thank you again for your patience and we look forward to seeing you all soon.

 

Kind regards,

The Team at Williams Landing Dental Clinic
