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.

Many patients have anxiety when it comes to visiting the dentist. If you are nervous about your procedure, we believe you will find our Toowoomba dental clinic a friendly and comforting environment that puts you at ease.
Our dentists care deeply for our patients and prioritise comfort. As a private dental clinic, we are free to take our time helping patients develop trust with our team and to cater to your needs in a personal way.
Looking after patients’ health and wellbeing are all part of our commitment to outstanding dentistry.
Many patients who fear pain had a negative experience in the past. We have learned so much about how different people react to anaesthetic and the time it takes people to become fully numb. Before we even use a needle, we apply a topical anaesthetic to numb the area before we inject the medication that completely numbs the area.
If you need a little additional help relaxing, we also offer sedation with nitrous oxide, or happy gas, to take the edge off. It wears off quickly so you can return to work without worry.
Let us know if you are feeling on edge about your procedure so we can help put your mind at ease while we care for your smile.
