Dental Implants


Dental implants are a revolutionary solution for replacing missing teeth and restoring the function, aesthetics, and confidence of your smile. At Facial Harmony Skin & Dental in Box Hill we offer advanced dental implant services to help you achieve a beautiful, functional smile that looks and feels natural.


Understanding Dental Implants

A dental implant is a small titanium post that is surgically implanted into the jawbone to serve as a replacement for a missing tooth root. Once placed, the implant fuses with the surrounding bone in a process called osseointegration, providing a stable and durable foundation for a prosthetic tooth or crown.


Implant Components:

  • Implant Fixture: This is a small, screw-like post made of biocompatible materials, such as titanium. It is surgically implanted into the jawbone.
  • Abutment: This is a connector that is placed on or built into the top of the implant fixture. It connects the implant to the replacement tooth or teeth.
  • Prosthesis (Crown, Bridge, or Denture): The prosthesis is the artificial tooth or teeth that are attached to the abutment. It can be a single crown for a single missing tooth, a bridge for multiple adjacent missing teeth, or a denture for a full arch of missing teeth.



  • Natural Appearance: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth.
  • Durability: With proper care, implants can last a lifetime.
  • Preservation of Bone Structure: Implants help preserve and prevent floss of jawbone structure which normally occurs after loss of teeth.


The Dental Implant Process

Initial Consultation and Evaluation

During your initial consultation at Facial Harmony Skin & Dental, our experienced implant dentist will evaluate your oral health, discuss your treatment goals, and determine if you are a suitable candidate for dental implants. This may involve taking X-rays or scans to assess the health and density of your jawbone.

Treatment Planning

If dental implants are recommended, our dental team will create a personalised treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals. This may include determining the number of implants required, the type of prosthetic restoration, and any additional procedures, such as bone grafting or sinus augmentation, to ensure optimal results.

Implant Placement Surgery

The implant placement surgery is typically performed under local anaesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Our skilled implant dentist will carefully position the implants into the jawbone at precise locations and angles to maximise stability and support for the prosthetic teeth.

Osseointegration and Healing

After implant placement, a period of healing is required to allow the implants to fuse with the surrounding bone. This process, known as osseointegration, typically takes several months, during which temporary restorations may be worn to maintain function and aesthetics.

Prosthetic Restoration

Once osseointegration is complete, the final prosthetic teeth or crowns will be custom-crafted to match the shape, size, and colour of your natural teeth. These restorations will be securely attached to the implants, completing your smile transformation and restoring full function and aesthetics.
