What are dental implants?
Dental Implants are possibly the most exciting news in dentistry for decades. Now you can have a tooth implanted into your jawbone and not suffer the discomfort and inconvenience of a bridge. Your dental implant feels just like having a normal tooth. The whole procedure (known as one of the gentlest procedures in dentistry) is performed painlessly.
Myth buster #1: Dental implants are cheaper overseas
Have you considered going to Thailand so you can save on dental implants?
We offer what we believe are the most affordable dental implants possible within Australia.
You could fly to Thailand and have the same procedure done for a few hundred dollars less, but what do you do if something goes wrong?
Now you can have a dental implant in Australia, with a licensed dental surgeon who’s on your doorstep. No need to worry about airfares, passports or tummy upsets, not to mention having to travel back overseas for reviews and follow-ups should problems arise.
Remember: Dr Pinho is a registered Australian dental surgeon, highly trained to perform the great majority of all oral surgeries, including dental implants, safely and efficiently. Dr Pinho is a member of the Australian Dental Association and works closely with leading oral surgeons in both Sydney and Melbourne.
We know that some other dentists charge up to $6,000 for a dental implant. We don’t believe this is value for money.
Consider this: The difference in price between dental implant systems is rarely more than $100. The designs are all fairly similar. If you’re being charged thousands more, you’re not paying for the system but for labour and a fancy surgery.
You don’t want to pay for marble and a fancy fish tank, do you? We didn’t think so. You need a meticulously planned treatment program and an experienced and skilled dental surgeon.
We’re proud to offer state-of-the-art high-quality teeth implants at the unbelievably cheap rate of $2,850.
Affordable, high-quality dental implants
We use only Australian-approved high-quality dental implants. Don’t think for a minute that ‘affordable’ means you won’t get excellent treatment. Dr Pinho (Dentist) focuses on this area so he’s able to offer this great-value, low-cost treatment to all.
How does it work?
First, Dr Pinho will go through all the benefits of each material and company. Once you’ve decided on a particular option, he will develop a treatment plan and take you through it, step by step. We want to make sure you’re comfortable with how your treatment will go and you understand all your options (including IV sedation or ‘sleep dentistry’).
Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a favoured choice amongst those who would like to have their teeth replaced. When it comes to replacing one or more teeth, dental implants have become the immediate choice for doctors and patients alike. Here are a few reasons why:
They work like Natural Teeth:
Just as how your natural teeth have roots to support your jawbone, dental implants have artificial tooth roots that support your jawbone perfectly. Moreover, dental implants also looks and functions like natural teeth, which make eating and speaking effortless.
Dental implants are famous for their durability. Perhaps, they are considered a permanent solution for tooth loss. Relative to dentures and bridges, dental implants are found to last a lifetime, provided they are maintained.
Easy to Maintain:
A major benefit of dental implants is that they are much easier to maintain and is in no way different from caring for natural teeth. You don’t even have to use special creams and adhesives for proper maintenance. Regular brushing and flossing would suffice to keep implants in their best shape.
Secures Adjacent Teeth:
Dental implants don’t impact your adjacent teeth. Conventional methods such as bridges and dentures can weaken the surrounding teeth and might cause tooth decay as well. On the flip side, dental implants doesn’t cause any stress to adjacent teeth, thus keeping them safe.
The complete treatment can last anywhere between 6 weeks and 6 months. During the initial consultation, the condition of your teeth and jaw will be assessed. This would help them decide the type of implant and treatment you’d need.
After administering local/general anaesthesia, you might be provided with bone graft if there’s inadequate bone density. This is to make sure your implant is well supported.
The implant will be inserted in the next step, followed by placing the replacement teeth.
Follow these important tips for speedy recovery after the treatment:
Take complete rest for a day or two after surgery.
Bleeding and swelling are likely to occur and this is normal. Use cold compress on the chin to reduce swelling and pain.
Eat soft foods that requires little to no chewing such as applesauce, oatmeal, pudding, milkshakes and more.
Don’t miss out to take any medications prescribed by the surgeon.
Do not proceed with brushing and flossing right way. Use mouthwash to maintain oral hygiene for an initial few days.
If you notice any unusual symptoms, contact your dentist for assistance.
