Dental Implants in Sydney CBD – What Are They?
Dental implants are seen as the gold standard of missing teeth replacement and are a manufactured substitute for a natural tooth root. Consisting of a titanium screw-like object, each implant is designed to anchor into the jawbone using a precise surgical technique. Over time, bone tissue fuses with the implant to create a sturdy platform which supports a dental crown, bridge, or denture.
How Can They Help Sydney CBD Patients?
Dental implants are a premium alternative to conventional bridges and dentures. They provide the utmost in stability and longevity and can appear more lifelike than their counterparts. For Sydney CBD patients, quality dental implants give you the ability to speak, eat and chew like normal, just as if you never lost a tooth in the first place.
Of course, while dentures and bridges can also help to restore a smile, dental implants do something that conventional dentures and bridges can’t…halt the bone loss process.
When a tooth is missing, it kickstarts a chain of events that culminate in facial bone loss. Because dental implants anchor directly into the jaw, they can re-stimulate existing bone tissue that would otherwise become reabsorbed back into the body. Ultimately when fitted with dental implants, CBD patients can also benefit from a healthier mouth and the preserved facial structure.
Whether you are missing a single tooth, multiple teeth or even all of your teeth our highly-experienced team at Macquarie Dental have a dental implant solution for you.
How are Dental Implants Fitted?
- Firstly, scans are taken to ensure sufficient bone density.
- Next, a dental implant is placed into the jawbone during a comfortable surgical process – a temporary crown may then be placed
- Time is needed for the implant to fuse with bone tissue
- Once stable, temporary restorations are removed and permanent restorations are placed.
How Long Does the Process Take?
When it comes to dental implants, CBD patients should know that every person is different. Treatment times for Sydney CBD patients typically vary between 4 and 9 months depending upon a number of factors. They include;
- The complexity of your case and the number of dental implants placed
- The ability to grow bone – remember, a dental implant relies on the ability for bone tissue to fuse with it.
- Underlying conditions and/or lifestyle habits that may affect the above.

Is an Implant-based Restoration Right for You?
Although dental implants provide an ideal solution for many people missing one or more teeth, there are certain criteria that our Sydney CBD patients need to follow.
Firstly, they need to be in good general health. The reason for this is that dental implant treatment does require a surgical procedure. Like any surgical procedure, those with pre-existing heart conditions or underlying health conditions such as high blood pressure could be at risk.
Secondly, even though the success rates of dental implant placement here in our Sydney CBD dental clinic remain high, existing gum disease or tooth decay can impact on the outcome. For this reason, our dentist will need to treat these conditions first.
The same goes for those with extensive bone loss. Dental implants need sufficient bone in which to anchor. If it isn’t present, then the risk of implant failure is greater. That said, our highly capable team can perform bone grafting procedures in most cases but extra costs and timescales need to be factored in.
In addition, those people who smoke should know that nicotine reduces the bone’s capacity to heal. As bone healing is vital to the success of a dental implant restoration, it’s imperative that the patient quits smoking well before the process begins.
