Dental Implants in Perth
Very few people are born with perfect teeth and even fewer manage to keep them that way. Teeth are susceptible to becoming chipped or broken. Traumatic force can even completely knock out a tooth from its place, which can look rather unappealing and even affect speech.
At Aurora Smiles Dental Care, we understand the impacts that missing teeth can have.
It can make you feel insecure about your smile and less confident about yourself. Missing teeth can also result in a loss of functionality, making it difficult or uncomfortable to chew. Using special implants, our dentists can alleviate any discomfort and restore your smile.

What Are Dental Implants?
Implants are an artificial tooth root shaped like a screw and placed directly into the jaw bone. This firmly anchors a replacement tooth or bridge in place. Those with missing or badly damaged teeth often opt for this treatment as it replicates the look and function of normal teeth.
The benefit is that surrounding teeth are not affected. Once the bone is fused around the implant, a crown is placed on top. The procedure is a comfortable and natural looking replacement option ideal for badly damaged or missing teeth.
Be sure to schedule an appointment to discuss this treatment option.
The procedure first involves surgically placing the implant directly into the jaw bone. This is done under local anaesthetic for pain management. Everything is done in a safely controlled environment by our qualified specialists.
The second part of the procedure involves placing a crown to replicate the look and feel of a natural tooth. This stage occurs approximately three months after the implant is inserted to allow it to fuse with the jaw bone.
The entire procedure can take as long as nine months with most of that time devoted to healing and for the implant to fuse with the bone. Each patient heals differently so the total treatment time varies.
To determine if you are a suitable candidate, we first conduct a thorough examination. Proper bone structure and healthy gums are a must. We evaluate each patient on a case by case basis to determine the best treatment option.
