Fill the gap with dental implants at Coomera Smiles.
Our team at Coomera Smiles understand that your smile is the first thing people notice about you, and we want you to be confident with that smile! An option for improving the appearance of broken or mis-coloured teeth is by replacing them with a natural looking dental implant! Implants work by placing a titanium screw into the jawbone where the missing tooth used to be. Using local anaesthesia makes this a straightforward and painless experience. After giving the Implant time to integrate with the bone a crown is placed onto the screw to give you your brand-new tooth!

Dental Implants FAQs
Dental implants are made from titanium, which is a biocompatible material. This means that the material is able to fuse with the jawbone and act as a new root for the crown, which will replace your missing tooth. Dental implants are made in a special dental laboratory, after which they are sent to your dentist. Your dentist will surgically insert your implant into the jawbone before fitting a connector and a crown. The process usually takes multiple appointments.
Yes, absolutely. Once your dental implant has been placed and you have healed from the procedure, your restoration will look and feel just like a natural tooth. You will enjoy fully restored function and will be able to eat and speak normally. Your implant will fuse with your jawbone, which means that it will be secured in place. You will need to take care of your implant in the same way as your natural teeth by practising good oral hygiene. Brush and floss daily, and don’t forget to see your dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.
After your dental implant surgery, you may feel some pain and discomfort in your mouth. While you recover, it is important that you stick to a diet of soft foods. Be sure to incorporate plenty of nutrients and stay hydrated by drinking water. Try eating blended soups and broths, but make sure that they are lukewarm rather than hot to avoid irritation at the site of surgery. You can also try eating mashed potatoes, ice cream, mashed avocado, and soft pastas. Scrambled eggs and soft cheeses are also good options because they are easy to chew, plus they are packed with protein.
