What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of strong materials like titanium that are inserted into your jawbone to support replacement teeth or bridges. They serve as sturdy anchors for crowns, bridges, or dentures, securing them in place. Visit Kedron Family Dental for dental implants in Brisbane.

What to Expect in a Multiple Tooth Replacement Brisbane

At Kedron Family Dental, we transform smiles through advanced dental solutions, including our multiple tooth implant treatment. Let’s walk through the process.


Patient Assessment: The process typically begins with a thorough examination of your oral health. Here our implant dentist assesses the condition of your existing teeth, gums, and jawbone through x-rays and other imaging techniques.

Medical History Review: Understanding your overall health is crucial to planning the treatment needed for your specific case. Any existing medical conditions or medications that you have may affect the procedures discussed.

Treatment Planning: Based on your clinical exam and x-rays, our dentist will create a personalised treatment plan. This plan outlines such things as the number of implants needed, the optimal placement, and the type of restoration (crown, bridge) to be used. If there is a hygiene phase needed prior to surgery, we will also include this.

Implant Placement

Surgical Procedure: Once your mouth is hygienically ready, we move on to the implant surgery You are usually given local anaesthesia to ensure comfort during the process.

Implant Placement: Our dentist precisely places titanium implant screws into the jawbone at the specified locations. These implants act as artificial tooth roots and provide a stable foundation for the new teeth.

Healing Period: After placement, there is a healing period during which the implants fuse with the surrounding bone. This process, called “osseointegration”, is essential for the stability and success of the implants.

Crown Attachment

Abutment Placement: Abutments are attached to the implants once the implants have successfully integrated with the jawbone. These abutments protrude above the gumline and serve as anchors for the final teeth.

Impressions and Customisation: Impressions of the abutments are taken to create custom-made crowns or bridges. The goal is to ensure that the new teeth match the shape, colour, and alignment of your natural teeth for a harmonious appearance.

Final Restoration: The custom-made crowns or bridges are securely attached to the abutments, completing the implant restoration. Our dentist ensures proper alignment and bite to guarantee functionality.

Recovery Time for Multiple Teeth Implants

The recovery time for multiple tooth implants can vary patient to patient and depends on several factors, including the number of implants, your overall health, and the complexity of your case. In general, the initial healing period after implant surgery takes a few days to a couple of weeks. During this time, you may experience some discomfort, swelling, or bruising, which can be managed with prescribed medications and proper postoperative care.

It’s important to note, however, that the full integration of implants with your jawbone takes several months. This period allows the implants to become securely anchored into your bone, ensuring their stability and long-term success. The second phase of the treatment, which involves the placement of abutments and the attachment of the final teeth (crowns or bridges), typically happens after the osseointegration process is complete.

You are usually able to resume normal activities shortly after the initial healing period, but it’s important to follow our dentist’s instructions for postoperative care, attend follow-up appointments, and maintain good oral hygiene throughout the recovery process. Overall, the entire treatment, from implant placement to the final restoration, may take several months to achieve optimal results. 

Proper Ways to Maintain Your Multiple Tooth Implants

It’s essential to maintain your multiple tooth implants to ensure their longevity and your overall oral health. Here are some recommended ways:

Regular Oral Hygiene

Brush your teeth at least twice daily with a soft-bristled toothbrush. Use a fluoride toothpaste and pay close attention to the gumline and areas around your implants. Floss daily to remove plaque and debris from between the teeth and around the implants.

Use Implant-Friendly Products

Choose oral care products that are specifically designed for dental implants. These products help maintain a healthy environment for both the implants and your natural teeth.

Regular Dental Check-ups

Schedule 6-month dental check-ups and cleanings with your dentist. Dentist cleanings are crucial for removing any accumulated plaque or tartar that may be hard to reach with regular brushing and flossing.

Avoid Harmful Habits

Avoid habits that can potentially damage your implants, such as chewing on hard objects like ice or using your teeth to open packages. Avoid smoking and limit your alcohol consumption, as these can negatively impact oral health.

Protect Against Bruxism

If you grind your teeth at night, consider using a nightguard. Teeth grinding can place excessive force on both natural teeth and implants, leading to potential complications from wear and tear.

What our patients say

Google Review

On my recent visit I took my little boy for his first dental experience. The staff were wonderful and hygienist Alex did an amazing job of making him feel comfortable and ensuring he had an enjoyable experience. He had no complaints and even talks about when we will go back to the dentist. As my dental experience as a child was terrible, I could not recommend Alex and the team highly enough for a visit for children to make them comfortable and a positive experience.

I went for a routine check up and clean as a new customer to the practice. From checking in (Abby) to the clean (Dr Chantal and Kian), everyone was very professional and thorough. A very comprehensive assessment was made and a meticulous clean was provided by Dr Chantal. Overall great dental experience and I will be back.

I am a white knuckle dental patient (a product of school mobile dental care back in the 1960’s) I had a crown installed all in one visit today (less than 3 hours). Totally painless. All staff were wonderful and highly empathetic to my issues. The practice is highly recommended, which is why I have been a patient at Kedron for the last 15 years.

I have been going to Kedron Family Dental for a while now and such positive experiences so far at the practice. Dr Chantal and the dental assistants that work there are fantastic - professional and takes good care of your oral health. I would keep going back despite having moved to the other side of the river :))

Elwynn has been my dentist for many years, and without a doubt is one of the best! Extremely professional and knowledgeable; but where he is really ahead of the rest, is the care and explanation he provides throughout any treatment or examination. Great to have him in the Brisbane area!
