After careful evaluation of our local community situation, Leanne and Rachael have made the tough decision to close their dental practice until further notice. In doing so, the L&R Dental team are taking steps to be proactive in reducing the impact of COVID-19 on our valued patients and Toowoomba community. Any non-urgent enquiries can be submitted through the contact form on our website. If you have an emergency, please call our clinic during office hours for further advice from one of our experienced team members. Thank you for your support and understanding during this time.

Yes, we accept all private health insurance cards and have HICAPS facilities to submit your claims.

We provide complete dental implant treatment right here in our Toowoomba dental clinic. We welcome you to call us to arrange a consultation.

To learn if dental implants are an option for you, we will need to perform a full evaluation.

  • Dental x-rays and photos
  • Bone evaluation
  • Bite evaluation
  • Medical history

In order for dental implants treatment to be successful, you will need enough bone to support the dental implant screw, which replaces the root of your tooth. Implants are made of biocompatible metals like titanium so that they can integrate with your natural bone in a process called osseointegration. This makes the implant suitable to support a dental implant crown and to allow you to eat an unrestricted diet.

If poor bone quality exists, we can often perform additional treatments, such as bone grafting or sinus lifts to make dental implants possible.

Dental implants also look natural and are convenient to take care of. Just brush and floss them like your natural teeth and be sure to attend your regular check-up and clean to help your gums stay healthy.

Many patients today are choosing dental implants, either to replace single missing teeth or to work with dental bridges and dentures for increased reliability.
