Here at our modern dental clinic in Castle Hill, we have invested in the latest technologies and techniques to give our patients the highest level of implant care.

What is an implant exactly?
A dental implant is a permanent, non-removable way to replace a missing tooth or teeth. Made from titanium, it is surgically inserted into the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. Over time, the surrounding bone and soft tissues fuse with the implant making it strong enough to support a dental crown.
Because the implant acts as a tooth root, it stimulates the bone and prevents bone loss which occurs naturally when a tooth is missing. No other restorative treatment can do this.
Tooth implants are extremely versatile and can be used for a wide variety of smile options. These include:
Replacing one missing tooth
A single dental implant can be used with a natural-looking dental crown to fill a gap left by a missing tooth. The crown is colour matched to the surrounding teeth to give a seamless smile.
Multiple missing teeth
If a patient has several missing teeth in a row, our dentist can use a dental bridge to span the gap. However, unlike a conventional dental bridge, the suspended tooth or teeth are supported by a dental implant which is secured down into the jaw at each end of the gap.
Missing all teeth
There are occasions where all of a patient’s teeth need to be extracted, In these cases, the most effective solution is a procedure known as “All-on-4®”. Immediately following extraction, our experienced dentist can fit the patient with an upper and lower prosthesis containing 10-14 teeth, which is fixed permanently in place with just 4 or 6 dental implants.
Our Castle Hill dentist can also solve that frustrating problem of loose dentures by fitting implant-retained dentures, so they won’t move around in the mouth. If you are suffering from ill-fitting dentures or missing teeth, then tooth implants in Castle Hill could be a great treatment solution for you.
Can anyone have a dental implant in Castle Hill?
Most people can have dental implants provided they are in good overall health and can undergo surgery. However, just like natural teeth, dental implants require the support of bone to keep them secure and stable. So, it is important that as a patient, you have sufficient width and volume of bone to give your implants the best chance of success.
A lack of bone doesn’t mean that you can’t have implants. Instead, our dentist may suggest a bone graft or a sinus lift to make more space for a dental implant to be placed. Naturally, Castle Hill patients should be aware that this adds on both time and cost to any initial implant treatment.
Dental Implants in Castle Hill – Why Choose Beyond Infinity Dental?
Personalised treatment plan to incorporate a variety of implant methods
Depending on your individual dental circumstances, we have the skills to carry out different types of implant surgery, including guided, non-guided, flap, and flapless, and will personalise a treatment plan that best meets your needs.
Computer-guided assistance for convenient and safer implant placement
We have invested heavily in the latest dental implant technology, such as the CBCT Scanner, the DIO Navi computer-guided implant system and the MIS computer-guided implant system. As a result, our dentists are now able to perform this procedure with guided assistance.
So how does it work?
These technologies scan the jaw area and collect the data into a computer. This data is then unscrambled to present an accurate 3D model of your jaw in real-time. This virtual model gives our Castle Hill dentist the opportunity to precisely and virtually plan the placement, thus avoiding any nearby nerves or sinus cavities.
Faster recovery time
These innovative techniques are carried out before surgery is performed and that means that when it comes to implant placement for real, keyhole surgery can be used. This is a flapless technique that involves placing the implant through the gum tissue without the need to raise the mucoperiosteal flap. As a result, patients will:
- Spend less time in the dentist’s chair
- Receive no stitches and
- Experience very little (if any) bleeding
Ultimately all of the above leads to faster surgery and a quicker healing time.
Once healing is complete (usually around 6 weeks) the restoration can be finalised by attaching a lifelike porcelain dental crown.
