Missing teeth make everyday activities such as speaking and eating challenging and may also have a negative impact on self-confidence. Dental implants provide a convenient solution to the problem of missing teeth.
Dr Mostafa Hussain’s experience and education, including the prestigious gIDE Master Clinicians Program, make the dental implant process both efficient and successful. Dr Aus earned a Master of Clinical Dentistry in Dental Implantology from Griffith University. Dr Mostafa and Dr Aus consistently seek the latest evidence-based services and techniques from experts around the world to benefit our Perth patients.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants offer a number of health benefits over other teeth replacement options.
Improved occlusion (bite) – Missing teeth leave gaps in the smile, making it possible for adjacent teeth to shift or tilt, causing misalignment and exposed root structure.
Bone preservation – Tooth loss leads to resorption of underlying bone. Chewing pressure placed on the implant stimulates healthy bone retention.
Stability – Made of a biocompatible material, such as titanium, dental implants are designed to integrate with the jawbone in a process called osseointegration.
Convenience – Single dental implants require similar care as natural teeth, including exemplary home hygiene and regular professional dental cleanings. Dental implants also look and feel similar to natural teeth.
Dental Implant Procedure
Successful dental implants require precise planning and evaluation, including x-rays, health history and moulds of the teeth to determine proper surgical and restorative placement.
- Determine if sufficient bone is present to support the dental implant
- Identify the ideal location for the dental implant post
- Determine need for bone grafting or sinus augmentation
- Create a surgical guide
Dr Mostafa or Dr Aus will perform the entire dental implant surgery at our Melville clinic. For patients who are interested, we offer sedation options, including oral sedation and IV sedation, in addition to a local anaesthetic.
Over the next 3-4 months, the dental implant post will fuse with the jawbone. This ensures the dental implant can support the force of chewing. A temporary restoration will fill the gap in your smile while integration completes.
Dental Implant Crowns
Each dental implant crown is a custom restoration, designed by our dentists, along with experienced local technicians, to match the size, shape and colour of natural teeth for seamless, aesthetic results.
Implant crowns attach to a small connector, called an abutment, which connects directly to the dental implant post.
Implant-retained dentistry combines the stability and health benefits of dental implants with either a dental bridge or denture.
Dental implant bridges replace teeth without the need to place crowns on healthy adjacent teeth and can provide an alternative to a partial removable denture.
Dental implants can be used to lock dentures into place, eliminating movement or slipping that may cause denture sores or embarrassing mishaps.
