Dental Implants at Queanbeyan Dental Clinic

Do you have missing or seriously damaged teeth? There are many different restorative treatment choices on the market, and one method that has stood out from the rest are dental implants. At Queanbeyan Dental Clinic, we have been offering implant-based restorations for many years, but many people are still uncertain what dental implants are and how they work. 

What Are Dental Implants?

A dental implant is the closest thing you can get to a natural-looking and fully functioning tooth. Essentially, a dental implant is like an artificial tooth root, where a screw-like rod is implanted into your jawbone during a minor operation. As time goes on, the dental implant will create a sturdy based to support one or more restorations/crowns. 

Dental implants allow you to live your life without concern over your teeth – look forward to smiling, chewing, and eating without pain or embarrassment! 

A Dental Implant Is Made Up Of Three Parts:

  • The actual implant– A titanium rod that anchors into the jawbone.
  • The abutment– A small connecting structure that holds the crown to the rod.
  • The replacement tooth– The custom-made crown that replaces the missing or damaged tooth.

Benefits Of Dental Implants

Natural-looking solution

Implants form the most natural and true-to-life solution to a missing tooth. Other restorations such as a bridge or dentures are not as durable or realistic looking.


Dental implants have a 95% long-term success rate when properly maintained. They can last a lifetime, making them one of the best investments for tooth restoration you will make!

Low maintenance

Unlike alternatives like dentures, dental implants are very low maintenance. Brush, floss, and visit your dentist as you normally would to maintain your oral hygiene.

Improved diet

Dental implants leave you with a set of fully functioning teeth, which in turn helps you to diversify the foods that you are consuming, including fruits and nuts.

Improved health

Since dental implants connect with the bone, they help to keep your jawbone from resorbing or weakening. Allowing you to maintain a more youthful look, improving confidence, and leading to better oral health, dental implants can solve all your dental problems.

Are There Any Risks or Side Effects Associated with Dental Implants?

Side effects after receiving dental implants are infrequent and easily treatable. If you do experience any of these side effects, please get in contact with your dental practice. Such risks can include:

  • Infection
  • Injury or damage to other teeth or blood vessels
  • Nerve damage
  • Sinus problems if upper jaw implants protrude into sinus cavities

Do I Need Dental Implants?

Many of us consider missing teeth a mostly cosmetic problem, and this can be a good enough reason to get a dental implant. Still, missing teeth can be the cause of other issues such as extra stress on other teeth, damage, or sustained tooth loss. 

In some circumstances, one or more missing teeth can lead to substantial bone loss in your jaw as the bone weakens from lack of use. This can actually result in visible changes in your face and make you appear older, and you guessed it… this is where dental implants can change everything.
