Dental Implants - How Do They Work?

A dental implant is a component that is anchored in the bone of your jaw to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, or denture. Depending on your mouth, you may require a single tooth implant or you can replace all teeth with full mouth dental implants.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner

Who is a candidate for dental implants?

If any of the below dental problems apply to your current tooth situation, then you are likely a great candidate for dental implants. During the first consultation with your dentist, you will find out if you are a candidate.

  • I lost one or a number of my original teeth
  • I suffer from gum disease that is impacting my oral health
  • I find wearing my dentures uncomfortable
  • I’m unhappy with my smile, front teeth and facial appearance
  • I can’t eat  the foods that I enjoy anymore

  • My missing tooth impact how I talk and sound
  • I’m not happy with my smile and I feel self conscious


How do dental implants work?

Dental implants are surgically placed in your jawbone, where they act as the roots of missing teeth. Due to the titanium in the implants fuses with your jawbone, the implants won’t slip, make noise or cause bone damage the way dental bridges or dentures might.

Dental Implantology Terms Explained

Just starting your research into tooh implants? No worries! We understand that it can be confusing with so many new terms thrown around in the dental industry.
We have compiled a list of must-know cosmetic dentistry terms that will help you to understand the dental implant procedure in greater detail.

  • Single Tooth Dental Implant (You are missing one tooth)

A permanent replacement for a missing tooth, anchored into the jaw with a screw.

  • All-On-Four (All-on-4) Dental Implants (You are missing multiple teeth)

All on four implants can replace all teeth in your upper or lower jaw. The All-on-4 protocol is for at least four implants to be placed in a jaw. These four implants then support the prostetic teeth placed upon the implants, which will get you a brand new smile.
The All-on-4 treatment concept is a prosthodontic procedure (i.e replacement of missing teeth) that provides a permanent, screw-retained, same-day replacement for the entire upper and/or lower set of teeth.

  • Implant Supported Dentures

An implant-supported prosthesis is a denture, which is both retained and supported by four or more dental implants. This means that the denture does not rest on the gums. Rather, it is fixed on implants, which are embedded in bone. Only your dentist will remove the denture for cleaning and examination.

  • Bone Grafting

The success of a dental implant, it’s ability to support a dental restoration, is very much dependent upon how much bone is available in the site where the implant is placed.

Replacing missing bone or adding to existing bone is very often essential to the success of a dental implant and the ensuing restoration.

  • So what exactly does bone grafting mean?

There are many ways in which bone grafting can be done. Sometimes it is as simple as collecting bone when preparing an implant site and then reusing the bone for grafting purposes.

Whenever we can use the patients own bone for repairs or additions, we will get the best results. In some cases, bone material from animal sources is used. It is very effective and very safe. Sometimes synthetic materials can be used to stimulate bone formation and sometimes we even use factors from your own blood to accelerate and promote bone formation in graft areas. Read more about bone grafting.

  • How is a specialist Prosthodontist different to a dentist?

General dentists can perform dental implant treatments, but they don’t have the same amount of in-depth training as Prosthodontists. Prosthodontics is a postgraduate qualification.
To apply for a position in the course, the applicant needs to have completed a minimum of two years of general dental practice and meet all other requirements for general registration as a dentist.
Once accepted into the course, the applicant will complete a further three years of full-time study after which they are able to register as a specialist in the field with the Dental Board of Australia.
In Australia, including Western Australia, there is no designation called “dental implant specialist”, as stated by AHPRA, the dental industry regulatory body.

Dental implants specialist overseas in Bali, Thailand or India

If you’re considering dental implants, Bali or Thailand would seem a great place to visit. With dental implants, including the abutment and the crown, being advertised for just $1700 or less, it really is a bargain. While plenty of specialist prosthodontists or general dentist in Bali do promise dental implants that cost just a third of what you may pay at home, there are 3 things you should consider before rushing off to book your flights.

1. Dental Training outside of Australia

Implant Dentists are nationally registered through the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency via the Dental Board of Australia and can be easily checked out online.

Heading to Bali because of what dental implants cost there, may not give you the same reassurance. How can you be sure that your dental implants specialist has the same extensive level of training as we have in Perth?

If you really are intent on going to Bali for dental implants specialist, then do as much research about the dental clinic and your dentist’s credentials before you leave.

Back home, the Australian Dental Association carefully regulates all dentists and handles any complaints you may have about their standard of dental care. Having your dental implants placed by Coolamon Dental Centre gives you peace of mind that you’re in safe, experienced hands.

2. Dental implants can’t always be carried out quickly

When you’re heading to Bali to get discounted dental implants, there’s more involved than just the dental implants cost. You’ll have to factor in time off work, flights, accommodation, food and more. You also need to consider that getting dental implants takes more than one visit to the dental clinic.

Naturally, you probably can’t stay in Bali for a six-month holiday, so you’ll have to book one or more flights and accommodation etc. depending on how complex your case is. Any prosthodontist who rushes ahead without waiting for the surrounding bone to fuse securely with the implant post is playing with fire and there’s an extremely high risk that your implant will fail.

3. What happens when something goes wrong?

Let’s say that you did get your dental implants placed in Bali and something went wrong after you’d returned. How are you going to rectify the problem? Most people aren’t going to be able to hop on a plane back to Bali at a moment’s notice and even if they could, it’s an additional cost for you.

As you’re going to need professional assistance to treat the infection and to ensure your implant is stable, the cost of this repair work is now going to creep into any money you may have saved on dental implants cost in Bali. Suddenly, your cheap dental implants are becoming ever more expensive, making it more costly compared to just having a dental implants in Perth.

Cost of Dental Implants in Perth Australia

The price of dental implants in Perth depends on which dentist you are going to. Warranty and Authentic Components are important to patients. If they are perfectly assisted by an expert implant clinician only then Dental Implants are affordable in a true sense, it becomes a very costly affair.

Instances where the cost is higher can involve bone grafting in the instance of a narrow, shallow jawbone, longer healing time, rejection of an implant, the type & quality of your crown and the number of dental implants you require.

The table below exemplifies the costs of dental implants in Perth. This is to be used only as a general pricing guide, as each case is unique and the amount may vary greatly depending on the factors mentioned above.

Best Dental Implants Perth

I was looking for affordable tooth implant Perth near Coolamon Park and found Coolamon Dental Centre. Also, they had many positive reviews and it was important for me too. And I’m absolutely satisfied – great service. I had a little issue with the appointment, but all in all my teeth feel great, so, definitely, I will use them in the future. I only wish they would enable text messaging with the clinic like with Rocketo SMS or some other app – it’s so much easier for me to communicate that way.
