Dr Zielinski is a highly experienced dental surgeon when it comes to placing dental implants. Rest assured that with his many years of experience, and the use of state-of-the-art equipment, your teeth will be cared for by the best there is in dentistry.
When a tooth is missing or failing, often a dental implant is a good option. A dental implant is a titanium screw which is placed into the jaw bone (similar to a tooth root) and is used to support a tooth crown.
Implant surgery is normally performed in the chair with a local anaesthetic injection. Depending on the case, a dental implant can be placed immediately following removal of a tooth or, if the bone is not adequate, 2 months after the extraction with bone grafting.
Why use a local dental surgeon?
- No overseas travel costs (dental implant surgery is not a one visit procedure, as is often percieved. The procedure takes minimum 3 months from start to finish)
- Australian registered dental practitioner
- Health insurance rebates on local dental
- Experience matters, look for quality dental work and a trusted practitioner
- Most dental implant literature states success rates are well over 90% which is very high in medicine however failures may occur. If any problems arise after the surgery such as infection, or worse still, implant failure implants carry a warranty and should be dealt with immediately without the need to go back overseas
The Dental Implant Procedure
- Assess your needs (Is a tooth already missing? Does it need to be removed? Or can we fix it?) We only remove teeth that are beyond repair.
- If a tooth needs to be extracted we carefully extract it to preserve the bone
- If an immediate implant can be placed we can do it at the time of extraction
- Usually we remove a tooth and you wait two months and we temporarily fill the gap for aesthetic reasons
- At two months we will replace the implant, graft bone if neccesary and leave it for a minimum heal time of two months (temporarily fill the gap if it is in an aesthetic zone)
- After two months we will take an impression, send this off to the local laboratory where the crown is made and schedule an appointment to attach the crown to the implant and finalise the procedure a fews later
