Why choose Dental Implants?

Traditionally, replacing missing teeth meant that only two uncomfortable treatments were available to patients, neither of which would completely restore their oral function or aesthetic:

  • Bridges damage the integrity of existing natural teeth as they rely on these for support and are prepared (shaved down) in the installation process.
  • Dentures can be uncomfortable, awkward and embarrassing if they fall loose during conversation or meals. This treatment alone is not a permanent solution and can restrict the variety of food patients can consume.

With advancements in implant dentistry, we are now able to treat tooth loss at the source with dental implant procedures so you no longer have to struggle with loose dentures or compromise the health of your remaining teeth. At SV Implant Centre we go above and beyond for our patients before, during and after surgery to ensure your treatment goes as smoothly as possible.

With the latest in implant technology available to us, at SV Implant Centre we have a very high success rate for our dental implant procedures and we are proud to provide this treatment to our valued patients.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are required when a patient has suffered single or multiple tooth loss due to an oral trauma, tooth decay or gum disease. Our implants are made from ‘grade 5’ titanium: this titanium alloy provides strength and high compatibility with jawbone material. Dental implants act as “screws” that are placed into the jawbone as a substitute for a missing tooth root. Over a period of three to six months, the jawbone bonds with the titanium, creating a solid permanent foundation. Small posts are then attached to these implants, which poke through the gums and create a support for prosthetic teeth or fixed dentures. The dental implants at SV Implant Centre can be utilised to secure a single tooth, a bridge or an entire upper (maxillary) or lower.

Why do I need dental implants?

Dental implants not only improve the appearance and function of smiles, they also can actively prevent negative conditions associated with tooth loss. Missing teeth can cause:

  • Facial contours to collapse
  • Deterioration of the jaw bone
  • Existing teeth to migrate
  • Decreased ability to eat certain foods
  • Impaired speech
  • An aged appearance
  • Gum tissue shrinkage

What are our Dental Implants made of?

Modern dental implants are generally constructed from titanium. Titanium dental implants provide a highly bio-compatible surface, which enables bone to completely fill in around the implant and provide long-term stability. The dental implants we utilise at SV Implant Centre are made of a ‘grade 5’ titanium alloy (containing 6% Aluminium and 4% Vanadium alloy) which offers better fracture resistance and tensile strength than other commercial implant materials.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
