Dental Implants

Dental Implants Double Bay, Woollahra NSW Whether you’ve lost teeth due to decay, injury or periodontal disease, you may feel less than confident when it comes to smiling for photos with friends or family. Missing teeth not only affect the appearance of your smile but they also adversely influence the function of your mouth. Chewing can be downright tricky. Fortunately, dental implants are an effective, natural-looking way to replace missing teeth or hold dentures securely in place. Dr Coumbis is highly skilled at implant placement.

What Are Dental Implants and What’s Involved?

If you have one or more missing teeth, implants are an ideal solution. These replacement tooth roots are composed of a titanium screw and a post that is covered with a crown, bridge or denture. The process involves placing the implant into the jawbone where it replaces the tooth root. After a few months, the implant affixes to the bone. The result – it appears and functions like a natural tooth.

To determine if you have enough bone available to secure the implant, Dr Coumbis will evaluate your mouth. Then we will take impressions to create a mold that’s necessary to craft a customised implant.

When the implant is ready to be inserted, Dr Coumbis will cut the gum at the insertion site to expose the bone. The implant is then added, and the gums surrounding the implant are stitched to secure the incision. Once the implant is firmly rooted in the bone, a post is attached to it. Lastly, Dr Coumbis will create a permanent tooth replacement. We often use implants in conjunction with crowns, bridges or veneers to provide a revitalised, beautiful smile.
