Dental Implants

Mature couple smiling with nice white teethThere’s no question that your smile is your best accessory. If you have missing teeth, however, you may feel too self-conscious to smile. Fortunately, we have a solution: dental implants.

Dental Implants can permanently restore your smile if you have missing teeth. They are designed to provide you with the same look, feel and function as your natural teeth.

What Are Some Benefits?

While there is a variety of tooth replacement options from which to choose, dental implants have several advantages over these:

  • Dental implants look natural and life-like.
  • The implant portion is composed of surgical-grade titanium.
  • Dental implants are highly secure and stable.
  • Dental implants prevent bone loss, inhibiting changes in the shape of your face.
  • When cared for properly, dental implants can last a lifetime.

What to Expect

This surgical procedure involves several stages, from consultation to crown placement, ensuring a seamless tooth replacement experience.
Consultation and Planning »

Initially, a consultation is essential to discuss the feasibility of an implant. Alternative options like bridges or dentures are considered if an implant isn’t suitable due to inadequate bone structure. In aesthetic areas, such as the front teeth, temporary solutions like dentures may be used during the implant healing process.

Preparation for Surgery »

Pre-surgical preparation involves obtaining a Cone Beam CT scan, which is usually subsidised by Medicare. This scan is crucial for assessing bone structure and planning the implant placement. You will be given information sheets on post-surgical care, including pain management, swelling control, and dietary adjustments.

The Procedure »

The surgery starts with tooth extraction if there is a damaged tooth or tooth root remaining, sometimes accompanied by bone grafting to enhance bone structure. The implant site is then prepared, and the implant is placed into a specific hole in the jawbone. Post-implantation, the site is either left to heal with a temporary denture in place or covered with a healing cap.

Healing and Crown Placement »

After three to four months of healing, the implant is tested for stability. A mould is then taken for the crown, which is placed two weeks later, completing the process.


Dr Vincent Wan can now do both the surgical phase and prosthetic phase of treatment. Being able to have both phases taken care of at our practice is particularly convenient for patients as we can have it all done in-house. It’s also less expensive than having treatment performed by a specialist. If a particular case is complex, however, we still use a specialist.

We’ll let you know if you’re an ideal candidate for dental implants.


Am I a candidate for dental implants?

We offer a Free 30 Minute Implant consultation to discuss your specific needs and situation. In this consult, we will discuss what your options are, you can share any questions or concerns you may have, and we can answer these after having thoroughly checked your mouth. We do not give cookie-cutter answers.

What will it cost me and does insurance cover this treatment?

The cost may not be as much as you think, especially if you have private health cover. Most dental insurances cover significant portions of the procedure, including extractions, temporary dentures, and implant surgery. However, it’s important to consider annual limits as the process can span over several months.

We’re 100% transparent about costs, which would be discussed in your initial, no-obligation consult. You leave with a tailored treatment plan, quote and information sheets on the treatment.

What are the main advantages and disadvantages of dental implants?

Dental implants offer several advantages, such as mimicking natural tooth structure and not affecting adjacent teeth, unlike bridges or dentures. The primary disadvantage is the time required for the procedure, which involves multiple stages and healing periods.

Is it painful?

With advancements in dental technology, implant surgery has become a relatively minor and routine procedure. General dentists are well-equipped to perform it, often with less discomfort than tooth extraction.
