Dental Implants in Kew

What Are Dental Implants?

At Willsmere Dental, we use a biocompatible titanium root that is anchored into your mouth. Then, a restoration is placed on top of the implant, which will look just like your natural teeth. A restoration typically includes:

  • Dental bridges
  • Fixed implant dentures
  • Porcelain crowns
  • Removable implant-supported dentures

You might be a great candidate for dental implants if you’re looking to replace a damaged tooth or a missing tooth in an effort to restore your smile.


Will anyone be able to tell that I have an implant?

Dental implants are designed to look and function just like your natural teeth. This means that no one will be able to tell that you have an implant or several implants. Implants will also be colour matched to the rest of your teeth, so you can be sure that they’ll look just like the rest of your smile. You can even have your natural teeth whitened before getting your implant for an added brighter look!

Are implants painful?

The implant process requires a few visits to our practice. We’ll always use an anaesthetic to make sure you’re comfortable during your care with us. An implant should not be painful during your visits or after it’s been placed. If you’re finding pain associated with it after it’s been inserted in your mouth, please book a visit with us.

How should I care for my implant?

You should care for your implant just as you would your natural teeth—that means brushing and flossing daily and keeping the gums clean and healthy. If you notice any problems or pain around your implant, we ask that you contact us straightaway so that we can address any issues.

How long will a dental implant(s) last?

The great thing about dental implants is that with proper care, they can last for years—in fact, some may even last for the rest of your life. The average lifespan of an implant can be greater than 15 years, which is great news for you!

How do I know if I am a good candidate for a dental implant?

When you visit us, we’ll examine your mouth and needs thoroughly and let you know if you’re a candidate for an implant. A good candidate should have adequate bone structure remaining in the jaw to hold the implant in place, healthy gums and be a non-smoker.

Are there any negative effects of dental implants?

So long as you properly care for and clean your dental implants, you shouldn’t have any issues with them. As this is a surgery, there’s always a risk of infection at the implant site, though should that occur, we can promptly treat it with antibiotics.
