You won’t believe the feeling of self-confidence and comfort you’ll experience, all thanks to Dental Implants!
Restore your oral health and regain your smile and confidence
Facing the world with missing teeth is not easy and it leads to consequences much beyond the obvious difficulties eating or speaking. Missing teeth has severe negative psychological effects including a very serious lack of self-confidence in social and professional situations. Dental Implants can and will help you regain your ability to interact socially with confidence.
What are Dental Implants?
A Dental Implant is an artificial tooth root that is submerged into
Manufactured from an extremely strong, biocompatible titanium, Dental Implants bind with the bone in a process called ‘osseointegration’ which, effectively cements the implant into the jaw. Neighbouring teeth also benefit from this procedure, and chances of avoiding gum disease, teeth shifting, and premature tooth wear improve dramatically as well.
Dental Implants are a much more comfortable and natural option than traditional dentures and aesthetically, they do resemble a normal tooth root.
When should Dental Implants be used?
Whether you are missing one tooth, several teeth, or all your teeth, Dental Implants are the perfect treatment to help you regain that gorgeous smile again.
Using some of the most advanced dental techniques available to patients today, Dental Implants can be used to:
- Restore one or more missing teeth.
The team at DFY Dental can replace a single tooth using one implant and a crown. The dental implant replaces both your tooth and its root, forming a very secure restoration that does not affect your bordering teeth.
- Anchor a dental bridge.
If you are living with several missing teeth, a dental bridge secured by implants can do away with the need for a removable, partial denture.
- Support a full denture.
If you are missing all of your teeth, dentures supported by implants are a far more secure and comfortable option, helping you to chew and speak more naturally than with traditional dentures.
Your dental implant treatment
Your journey towards regaining a complete smile begins with a personal consultation with Dr Yassmin at our Sydney based dental clinic, to determine whether dental implants are the right option for you. If together we decide to proceed, the next step is implant placement surgery.
Usually under local anaesthetics, the tooth implant is gently eased into your jawbone through a tiny incision in your gum. You then take a break from treatment for around three months, to allow the implant to securely integrate with your bone.
Between three and six months later, we invite you to our clinic again to have your new tooth restoration fitted. Once this dental crown or bridge is placed on your implant, your tooth replacement is complete, and you can enjoy the feeling of a smile, which is whole, healthy, and attractive once again.

Dental Implants versus dentures or a bridge
Dental implants offer many advantages over more traditional restorations such as dentures or dental bridges, including:
- An enviable rate of success guaranteed by their highly predictable results.
- Once inserted, dental implants look and function exactly like your natural teeth. Because they securely integrate with your jawbone, implants help to prevent bone loss and receding gums, which are often an unwanted by-product of dentures and bridges.
- Unlike dental bridges, implants don’t need your neighbouring healthy teeth to be altered in any way to provide support. With your healthy tooth enamel remaining untouched, you can experience much better oral health over the long term.
- Dental Implants can help you speak, chew and live normally once more, without having to ever worry about loose, ill-fitting dentures.
