Dental implants are a modern solution for the replacement of missing teeth. At Leederville Dental we provide the complete treatment, including the assessment, placing the tooth root implant and the fitting of your new tooth in one convenient location.
A dental implant can be thought of as an artificial tooth root that is placed into the jawbone. One or more missing teeth can be replaced. A dental implant is made from very strong material and placed in a simple procedure that is generally as convenient as a tooth extraction. After an initial healing period, during which the implant is placed in the bone and left undisturbed under gum tissue, it is uncovered and connected to a small metal post that secures and supports your new artificial tooth.
The implant material is extremely compatible with your jaw bone. The bone grows to the implant and bonds to it making the implant very strong.
Leederville Dental makes the impression and gives specific instructions, Onofrei Ceramics send back the finished product. Leo Onofrei makes crowns for existing teeth and makes bridges and implant crowns when teeth are missing. On request Leo attends the patient appointment to assist with choosing shade for the porcelain so you get the best match possible.
Experienced sedation dentist Dr Richard Kozlowski fitted this tooth implant during IV sedation or “sleep dental” at Leederville Dental. The crown was then fitted after the implant had time to bond with the surrounding bone.
