Are Dental Implants Right For Me?
It’s hard to tell who around you might already have dental implants because they look completely natural.
Anyone can have an accident. It could be work, a mishap when you’re out and being active or just terrible luck. Dental implants, when viable, is for anyone who wants to restore the natural state of their mouth.
Dental Implants are perfect for you if you’re looking for the following:
- A solution that’s stable, long-term and has a high success rate.
- A solution that doesn’t interfere with your day to day eating habits.
- A solution that serves as a strong foundation for the rest of your mouth, preventing the collapse of surrounding teeth and the loss of bone structure.
- Convenience – dental implants are easy to maintain and require close to no effort on your part once the procedure is completed.
While there are other solutions out there that aim to alter the state of your mouth to make the procedure work, we believe that the solution should suit your mouth, and dental implants do just that.

Are Dental Implants Safe?
Safety is the primary concern for many of our patients and rightly so. Any time you’re putting a foreign object in your mouth for an extended period, it is natural to feel cautious.
Dental implants have two components:
- The Fixture: You can think of this as the base that keeps everything secure and stable. We use a medical-grade titanium screw for this, and it sits in the gum embedded to your bone.
- The prosthesis: This is the actual ‘tooth’ you’ll see and will be colour matched to look just like all your other teeth.
Dental implants are a commonly used method for replacing teeth and has been around for over 40 years. Dr David Cao has over a decade of experience in successful implant dentistry procedures, so you can rest assured you’re in good hands.
What’s the process of getting a dental implant?
You can get your implant in just four visits:
Visit One (Consultation):
First things first, you need to come in for a consultation! If you want to book one right now, you can do it here. We’ll use OPG Radiographs, CBCT Scans and get Intra-oral photos to obtain a complete picture of your situation.
From there you’ll know what treatment is right for you and what outcomes you can expect.
Visit Two (Surgical Phase):
With your consent, we’ll make the preparations required to place the implant in your mouth.
You can have access to both local and general anesthesia if you suffer anxiety from dental procedures. We want to make sure you are as comfortable as possible during any visit you have here at Hawthorn East Dental.
We’ll precisely place the fixture and embed it in the bone where your tooth is missing.
The process is quick and easy and will take you one visit. From here you will have to wait between 3-6 months to rest and heal before the next stage. Time is then needed for the bone to slowly grow into the threads of the fixture, creating healthy and stable support.
Visit Three (Prosthetic Phase):
Now we’ll get to the aesthetic portion of the implant. First, we’ll take an impression of the missing tooth area.
We then send this impression over to our local dental laboratory where with great care your dental prosthesis is created. The tooth is coloured to match the exact shade of all your other teeth.
Once you’re happy with the results both regarding look and feel, we’ll carefully attach the prosthesis to the fixture.
This part is always the most satisfying for us. Seeing our clients’ restored smile is a happy moment for all.
Visit Four (Review):
After everything is complete, Dr. Cao will give you a care plan on how to maintain your implant. We want to make sure your implant is strong and healthy for many years to come.
We’ll discuss everything from brushing, flossing to regular check-ups and cleaning at the dentist.
