Restore Your Smile

dental implants Epping

If you hesitate to smile due to one or more missing teeth, we understand the toll that can take on your confidence. You have several options that will allow you to replace your missing teeth, including dental implants. Dr Zina Mahdi (Dentist) has extensive experience providing dental implant surgery, allowing patients to successfully restore missing teeth at Northern Dental Design.

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is also considered an artificial tooth root that is screwed into the jawbone. Composed of highly durable and long-lasting titanium, an implant serves as an anchor to hold a replacement tooth (the crown), a bridge or a denture securely in place. When you’ve completed dental implant treatment, your smile’s appearance and function will be restored.

The many reasons that people love having a dental implant include

  • A high success rate of the procedure
  • A natural look and feel
  • Easy to care for, with regular brushing, flossing and dental checkups

The Dental Implant Process

There are two stages of getting a dental implant. The first involves having the implant placed. The second happens after the site has healed when you have your dental restoration applied to the implant.

During your first visit with us, here is what you can expect:

  • First, we will take a detailed 3D radiological and clinical assessment of your implant needs.
  • Based on this assessment, a 3D digital mock-up of the proposed completed treatment outcome is then designed and presented to you. Dr Zina will then be able to attain a clear picture of the final implant solution.
  • Once you agree to proceed with treatment, a precise implant placement plan will be created.
  • Next, we will export the plan to an implant guide manufacturer for the creation of a precision surgical “keyhole” guide which is used at the time of implant placement.

The Benefits of Keyhole Surgery

Depending on how complex your case is, the dental implant placement procedure takes between 60-90 minutes. Dr Zina uses keyhole surgery, which results in minimal post-operative discomfort and side effects. You may even be able to return to work the same day. In some instances, the implant(s) can be provisionally restored at the same time as they are placed or later on the same day (All-on-4® implant procedure).

The second stage of getting a dental implant is completed after a healing period, which takes 3-4 months. The final permanent implant prosthesis (crown, bridge or denture) is digitally designed, fabricated and inserted.
