Have you got a damaged or missing tooth? Are you looking to replace existing dental work and want to explore your options?
Dental implants may be a great option for you – and the expertise of our Brisbane-based Prosthodontic team can help you make an informed decision when it comes to selecting an appropriate dental implant option.
An appealing alternative to dentures and bridges, dental implants are permanent placements that mimic your real teeth in both form and function. In most cases, our dental implants are just like natural teeth and they are even cleaned with dental floss and brushed with regular toothpaste.
Our dental implants are made in our dental laboratory (Studio 12) to closely match your existing teeth, and each of our implants provides peace of mind when it comes to professional quality, aesthetic & technique. Some advantages of teeth implants are that they –
- Withstand greater biting pressure than dentures
- Prevent hollowed or collapsed cheeks following tooth extraction
- Provide a level of comfort that is often greater than alternative treatment
- Do not usually require special cleaning products.
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is made of titanium and inserted into the jawbone by our team of dental surgeons in Brisbane to replace one or more missing teeth. Similar to a foundation, these implant points form a secure structural base and act as an anchor point for the placement of dental crowns.
Once the implant is placed, an abutment is attached that acts as a connection between the crown and root of your dental implant (or implants). This abutment provides structural support and allows the crown to be permanently attached to the site of the missing tooth.
A range of crown materials can be employed from all ceramic crowns to the more traditional gold crowns and porcelain crowns. Dr Fitzpatrick saying,
“BOH Dental only uses dental implants and materials of the highest quality. All materials employed have been validated with documented clinical research. The long-term success of dental implant treatment is well documented and your BOH dentist in Brisbane city can assess the suitability of this treatment to meet your unique needs.”

What dental implant systems are available?
This depends on your individual needs and dental health, and our Prosthodontists can help you assess the varied criteria that will help you choose the right dental implant for you.
We provide a full complement of services, extending from dental implant systems that replace a single tooth to full-mouth options –
- traditional delayed dental implant loading
- single dental implants
- full-mouth implants
- same-day implants
- all-on-4 implants
How long does dental implant treatment take?
For a typical traditional implant treatment, the whole process may take about 12-16 weeks – from the initial placement of the dental implant’s root to the fixing of the crown. However, depending on circumstance, advances in technology may allow you to have natural, beautiful looking teeth in a much shorter time frame.
“Research results and advanced surgical techniques permit immediate implant and crown connection on the same day in certain circumstances,” says Dr Fitzpatrick. We can help you assess whether you fit these criteria, and explore the different dental implant systems available for your individual health needs.
