Dental Implants

3-D Cone Beam 

To identify the ideal location for a dental implant, we use the 3-D imaging to determine the proper location based on bone density along with other considerations, such as the location of sinuses.

This gives Dr Ward valuable information to ensure a successful surgery.

Dental Implant Surgery

Once the correct spot is chosen to place your dental implant, Dr Ward will surgically place it in your bone. Dental implants are made of titanium and will actually bond with your bone and become part of the jaw structure.

While this surgery sounds serious, it is important to note that the bone does not contain nerves like a tooth, so recovery is generally well tolerated. We also use proper application of anaesthetic to ensure your comfort.

Once your surgery is complete, we allow the implant to integrate fully.

Dental Implant Crowns

Your dental implant crown will match your smile and is designed for durability. 

Ongoing Care

Once you have your dental implant, taking care of your oral health is essential. Good home care habits combined with professional cleanings and exams will protect your investment. So make sure to give our Coffs Harbour dental practice a call to continue your care after an implant procedure.
