Implant Dentistry

A permanent solution for a missing tooth

Kingsford Dental is proud to offer Implant Dentistry to restore your smile and health. Dental implants are a permanent solution for replacing missing teeth and are designed to look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. Our highly skilled team of dental professionals utilises state-of-the-art technology and advanced techniques to ensure successful implant placement and optimal results.

The dental implant procedure begins with a thorough examination and consultation to determine your suitability for implants. If you’re a candidate, a small titanium post is surgically placed into the jawbone, acting as a replacement root. This post integrates with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration, providing a stable foundation for the prosthetic tooth. Once the implant has fully healed and fused with the jawbone (this process takes around 6 months), an abutment is attached to the post, which serves as a connector between the implant and the final restoration.

Our skilled dentists work closely with you to customise a treatment plan that suits your unique needs. With our advanced technology and expertise, we strive to deliver natural-looking and long-lasting results that can improve your oral health, restore your ability to chew and speak comfortably, and enhance your overall confidence and quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions

Implant placement is typically performed under local anesthesia, ensuring that you experience little to no discomfort during the procedure. 

After the surgery, some mild soreness and swelling may occur, but it can be managed with over-the-counter pain medications. Most patients report that any discomfort is minimal and easily manageable.

The duration of the dental implant process can vary depending on individual cases. It typically involves multiple stages, including the initial consultation, implant placement surgery, healing period (osseointegration), and the placement of the final restoration. 
In general, the process can take around three months. In a more complex situation, a dental implant can take up to six months to complete.
Most people who have good oral and general health are suitable candidates for dental implants. However, an initial examination and consultation are necessary to evaluate your specific condition. 
Factors such as bone density, gum health, and any pre-existing medical conditions can impact your candidacy. In some cases, additional procedures like bone grafting may be required to ensure the success of implant placement.
We can utilize 3 D scanning and 3 D radiograph technology to perform implant surgery under a custom made guide. That means a minimal invasive procedure includes a small hole punctured through the gum for the placement of the dental implant. Due to the minimal invasive procedure, patient reported less pain and less swelling following the procedure.
