A dental implant is essentially a titanium rod that is inserted into one of your jaw bones either the mandible or maxilla with a prosthetic tooth placed on top. It is a fixed option to replace a missing tooth or teeth meaning that it does not have to be removed from your mouth and largely mimics natural teeth.
Dental implants are a relatively new but proven treatment method to replace missing teeth. At Redland Bay Smiles, Dr Vu Ngo is trained to place these implants within our surgery and this will help to minimise dental implant costs as we are keeping the procedure in-house. Consultation appointments with Dr Vu Ngo are essential in order for us to determine if you are a suitable candidate and for us to provide a treatment time frame and relevant costs.
If you are a suitable candidate and chose to continue with your implant procedure then an appointment will be scheduled to place the titanium rod into your jaw bone. This titanium rod must be observed for several months to ensure it integrates with the surrounding bones. Once Dr Vu Ngo is happy that integration has taken place he will arrange appointments to have a prosthetic tooth or crown placed over the implant. We offer long guarantees on our work provided certain conditions are met.
From having a missing tooth or teeth to getting a finished dental implant/s can be a lengthy and involved procedure. However, at Redland Bay Smiles we will keep you comfortable and informed all the way ensuring a quality finished outcome that patients are extremely satisfied with.
