One of the most efficient and affordable solutions for replacing a single tooth, is a dental implant. Missing teeth can not only change the way your smile looks, but it can also affect the way you speak, eat and function on a day-to-day basis. Whether you’ve lost a permanent tooth due to injury, disease or another reason, it’s essential to seek professional advice to prevent both immediate and long term damage.
At Perth Dental Implant Centre, we offer a wide variety of restorative implants including full mouth All-On-4 implants and multiple tooth implants. If you’ve lost a tooth, a single tooth implant in Perth may be the right options for you. Not only do single tooth implants look and feel like natural teeth, they’re also designed to promote the longevity and health of your existing teeth.
The term “implant” refers to the small, screw-shaped post placed into the bone. This is used to replace the root of a missing tooth which supports the new tooth/teeth in the mouth. This post is made from titanium as it has the unique ability to enable a process known as osseo-integration. This process allows both the bone and implant to fuse, making it sturdy, reliable and more life-like. If you’re missing a tooth, you may want to contact our team at Perth Dental Implant Centre to discuss your implant options.
Our single tooth implant procedures in Perth are primarily used to replace missing teeth and can be undertaken under either general anaesthetic or sedation restore smiles. At Perth Dental Implant Centre, our dentist will gently and carefully insert a titanium screw into your jaw bone, known as an implant, replacing the gap where your tooth and root once stood. After your implant has effectively healed, an abutment and crown are attached, restoring your smile and missing tooth. This procedure is common for those with multiple, singular missing teeth. If the missing teeth are adjacent, a single tooth implant may not be required. Instead, two implants may be used with a three or four tooth bridge, replacing multiple teeth in one procedure.

Yes. Whether you are having one dental implant and crown placed, a fixed implant bridge or an implant-retained denture, you are able to choose your desired tooth material, shade and shape.
The dental implant procedure generally takes around one hour for a single tooth. If you choose to have your dental implant placed using guided keyhole surgery, the procedure may take as little as 20 to 30 minutes. Once an implant is placed, it takes 2 to 3 months to form a strong bond with the jaw bone, after which time your custom crown or bridge can be attached.

Dental implants are both mechanical and biological in nature and there are many factors that can affect how long they last, for example the different biting forces between patients and changes in jaw bone health.
Dental implants have been used for many years and have been studied extensively to show a success rate ranging between 95% and 98% over a 30 year period in healthy, non-smoking patients. However, for some patients, dental implants may need to be replaced sooner.
A thorough assessment with our dentist will determine your suitability for dental implants. Keeping regular check-ups and cleaning appointments as well as maintaining good oral hygiene can also affect how long dental implants can last.
When placed by an experienced dentist, a dental implant can last up to 20 years or sometimes longer with proper care. The crown, bridge or denture covering the implant may last for 5 to 15 years, depending on the tooth materials used and how well you maintain your oral health.
Dental implant costs usually start from $3950 for a single tooth implant. Total treatment costs can vary depending on your unique needs, how many implants you’re having placed, whether bone or gum grafting is needed, the dental implant system you choose, crown or bridge materials and the experience of the prosthetist manufacturing your teeth.
