Dental implants are typically the best choice for anyone missing one or more teeth due to injury, disease or decay. They are especially practical for patients who can no longer wear loose-fitting removable dentures. If you have a missing tooth, multiple missing teeth or are missing all of your teeth then you are most likely a suitable candidate for dental implants; however, your dental and medical history must be carefully evaluated at your consultation appointment. Come and speak to one of our dentist at Tingalpa, Brisbane to discuss if dental
implants are for you.

There are many shapes, sizes and brands of implants available. Here at Malouf Dental our experienced clinicians have been offering Dental Implants in Brisbane as a treatment choice for many years and have a wide variety of experience with several kinds of implants. With this in mind you can be assured that we will know which implant is right for you.

It is important for a patient to have enough bone to support the insertion of a dental implant. If you do not have enough bone, there are many safe and effective ways to correct bone deficiency. If you are considering dental implants, Dr James Malouf will assess this and advise you accordingly.

Treatment time can vary greatly depending on your needs. Each situation needs a separate evaluation; at your consultation appointment we will be able to give you an approximate timetable.

Dental implants require 2 to 6 months of healing before they can be loaded in function. However for suitable candidates, the healing time can be reduced so that the implants are loaded almost immediately without compromising their success.

Treatment costs can vary greatly depending on your needs. Each situation requires a separate evaluation; at your consultation appointment we can discuss your wants and needs and will then be able to give you an idea of what costs are involved.

Initially, the implant is placed into your jaw bone. Over the next two to three months, the implant and the bone are allowed to bond together to form an anchor for your artificial tooth. During this time, a temporary tooth replacement option can be worn over the implant site. Following this, impressions of your implant will be recorded to begin the advanced construction of your new tooth.
Finally, your custom-made crown will be attached to the implant. After a short time, you will experience restored confidence in your smile and your ability to chew and speak. Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling that you may forget you ever lost a tooth.
