Frequently Asked Questions: Teeth Implants Gold Coast

  • Does the entire process of implanting and completing the tooth occur at the same place?

    We have access to state of the art equipment and leading-edge dental care technology. In addition to this, our dental surgeons are leaders in the field. This means that we can complete the entire dental treatment at one place. In many cases, this will occur at our medical centre.

    However, some treatments require access to additional facilities and even anaesthetists. In these cases, we can organise for the procedure to be completed at a hospital. Gold Coast hospitals are very well equipped for all manner of procedures, so you can rest assured that you will be getting the highest standard of care. Our dental specialists will inform you of the details relating to your implant procedure during your appointment. They will also cover all preliminary stages to ensure that you are well prepared for the implant procedure.

  • Can you attach dentures to implants?

    Many of our patients present with loose or ill-fitting dentures. This can be a problem for several reasons – most notably, it can cause significant discomfort. Fortunately, we have a great deal of experience correcting issues of this nature.

    One of the most effective corrective treatments is, in fact, dental implants. Gold Coast dental implants can easily stabilise loose dentures by better supporting them. Depending on the nature of your issue and your preferences, we can work around your current dentures, or have new ones made. Either way, we can ensure that your dentures are stabilised to prevent the issues that are associated with looseness. It should also be noted that dental implants do not affect your ability to clean the dentures. Dentures can still be removed easily and cleaned.

  • Can you replace numerous teeth with dental implants?

    It is not uncommon for patients to present with multiple loose or damaged teeth. If you are experiencing this, then we can help. Dental implants are a very versatile solution and they are suitable for one or more teeth. In fact, we can use implants to replace a number of consecutive teeth or even full arches. A full arch of teeth is twelve upper, and twelve lower teeth. Our specialists will assess the condition of your teeth and determine which require replacement. Once this has been established, we can develop perfectly fitted dental implants. Once implanted, these replacements will last for a considerable period of time, making them an effective and economic dental solution.

  • Can you replace my teeth in one day?

    At the Dental Implant & Specialist Centre, we do offer same day teeth replacement. We understand that dental procedures can be a challenge for some patients, which is why we strive to minimise your time spent undergoing treatment. Same day teeth replacement is suitable for many patients and we will discuss it with you during your appointment. Essentially, teeth replacement of this nature involves fitting the dental implants in a singular procedure. This allows you to address your dental issues in full, at a single time so that any future pain or discomfort is relieved.

  • How do I pay for the procedure?

    At our practice, we offer a range of payment options. Our administrative process is designed to be as straightforward and simple as possible. In most cases, our Gold Coast implant procedures are eligible for Medicare or private health fund rebates. We include the relevant information and codes in our written quotes, so that you can lodge a claim to receive these rebates. In addition to this, we have a range of payment plans and finance options.

    Our friendly staff will inform you of these during your appointment. We welcome the opportunity to address your queries at any point, so do not hesitate to ask.
