What We Can Use Dental Implants For

What Are Dental Implants And How Do They Work?

Dental implants can help a wide range of people, including those who need just one or a few teeth replaced, as well as those who need to replace all their teeth. Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the root of a missing tooth. They are surgically placed into the jawbone and, over time, fuse with the bone to create a stable foundation that acts as if it is the root of your tooth.

Dental implants are an excellent option for patients who have lost teeth due to injury, decay, or gum disease, offering a long-lasting and natural-looking solution. To replace one or a few teeth, the dental implant attaches to a dental crown or bridge. However if you need all your teeth replaced, there are two different options: snap-in dentures, or All-On-X prosthesis.

Snap-in dentures connect to dental implants but can be removed every day for cleaning. This helps to stabilise the denture and improves chewing ability. Whereas All-On-X is more like natural teeth in that it cannot be removed at home. You simply clean it every day (like natural teeth) and visit the dentist every six months where they can remove the prosthesis and provide professional cleaning.

Frequently Asked Questions 
About Dental Implants

General Info

Are dental implants painful?

While the procedure itself should not be painful due to local anaesthesia, some discomfort may be experienced during the healing process. This is typically manageable with over-the-counter pain medication.

What are the types of dental implants?

The different types of dental implant treatments include single and multi-tooth replacement where a dental implant is attached to a dental crown or bridge, as well as full-mouth dental implant treatments including All-On-X (which cannot be removed at home) and Snap-In Dentures (which can be removed at home for easy cleaning).

What do dental implants look like?

A dental implant consists of a titanium post that looks like a small screw, an abutment which connects the post to the replacement tooth, and the prosthetic tooth itself, which is custom-made to match your natural teeth.

Are dental implants safe?

Yes, dental implants are generally safe and have a high success rate of 97-98%. However, like any surgery, they carry some risk of complications such as infection and lack of integration.

Can you get dental implants for dentures?

Yes, implant-supported dentures are known as overdentures. We prefer to call them Snap-In Dentures and they're an option to help stabilise loose dentures in one or both jaws.

How long do dental implants last?

With proper care, dental implants can last a long time, while the prosthetic tooth or crown may last about 10 to 15 years before needing replacement.

Are dental implants covered by dental insurance?

Dental insurance policies vary widely, so it's best to check with your specific provider. Some may cover part of the cost of implants, while others may not.

Are dental implants covered by Medicare?

Unfortunately no. Even if you are eligible for treatment at an Australian Government dental facility, the only teeth replacement options that are offered are traditional partial or full dentures.

Are dental implants covered by Superannuation?

Yes, dental implants can be covered by Superannuation in certain circumstances. It’s called Compassionate Early Release of Superannuation. Our team can discuss the process with you and the criteria, however we cannot provide financial advice. Please consult with your financial advisor around whether this is the right option for you.


Who places dental implants?

Dental implants can be placed by oral surgeons, periodontists, or general dentists who have advanced training in implantology. Dr David Kerr undertook 10 years of advanced training prior to offering dental implants to his patients. He has since placed over a thousand dental implants.

What is the dental implants recovery time?

Recovery time varies depending on the individual and the complexity of the procedure, but most people can expect the healing process to take several weeks to a few months.

Can dental implants be done in one day?

Some dental offices offer "same-day implants" or "teeth in a day," where the implant and temporary crown are placed in one appointment. However, it’s important to remember that while it sounds convenient, your gums will be swollen from surgery and you will need multiple appointments to ensure you have a comfortable fit. If you are worried about being toothless, chat to us about the different temporary solutions we can provide while your gums are healing.

Is it safe to get dental implants overseas?

Patients sometimes consider travelling overseas for expensive dental treatment. However it’s important to weigh up all the risks and costs associated. The low prices advertised overseas are rarely all inclusive and patients may find they’ve spent nearly the same amount when all expenses are taken into account.

Aside from cost, it is important to remember that this is a major surgical procedure and it’s one you want done properly. There have been patients who experience urgent complications after overseas treatment and they’re unable to get the needed help in Australia because the materials used in their treatment are not TGA approved and can’t be fixed in Australia.

It can become a very expensive and distressing process if you experience complications during overseas dental treatment.

Issues / Challenges

Can I get dental implants with bone loss?

Bone loss can make dental implant placement more challenging, but not impossible. With advances in modern technology, the vast majority of people can be helped to restore their teeth with dental implants. Bone grafting may be necessary to provide a solid foundation for the implants.

Can smokers get dental implants?

Smokers can get dental implants, but smoking increases the risk of complications and can slow healing. Quitting smoking is advised before undergoing the procedure.

Can I get dental implants if I have gum disease?

Gum disease must be treated and controlled before dental implant surgery can take place, as it can lead to implant failure.

Do dental implants impact MRI scans?

Dental implants are usually made of titanium, which is the metal of choice in a range of medical procedures including hip and knee replacements. Titanium is not magnetic and therefore titanium dental implants will not interfere with MRI scans.

Are dental implants permanent? Can dental implants be removed?

Dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution for missing teeth. However, they can be removed if necessary, such as in the case of infection or other complications. This should be done by a dental professional.

Dental Implants VS…

Dental implants vs bridge?

Dental implants and bridges both replace missing teeth but in different ways. An implant replaces the entire tooth, including the root, while a bridge uses the adjacent teeth as support. Implants are a single tooth replacement option, but bridges involve the adjacent teeth that sometimes don’t need dental treatment otherwise.

Dental implants vs dentures?

While both implants and dentures replace missing teeth, dentures are removable and may not offer the same level of comfort or stability as implants. Implants function like natural teeth and do not need to be removed for cleaning.

Dental implants vs veneers?

Dental implants and veneers serve different purposes. Implants replace missing teeth, while veneers are thin shells placed over existing teeth to improve their appearance.

Dental implants vs crowns?

A dental crown is used to cover a damaged tooth or an implant. On the other hand, an implant replaces the root of a missing tooth and is typically topped with a crown but can also be used to stabilise a denture or part of a full arch strategy to replace a whole arch of missing teeth.

Dental implants vs root canal?

A root canal is a procedure to save a decayed or infected tooth, while a dental implant is used to replace a missing tooth. If a tooth cannot be saved with a root canal, an implant may be an option.
