Many people are hesitant to get dental implants because they’re unsure of the process. They delay treatment and continue to suffer problems with tooth loss. Dental implants are an amazing treatment option for restoring original teeth, but they’re not for everyone.
At South Perth Dental Surgery, we offer implant consultations with our friendly dental team. They will take the time to answer your questions and explain the entire process. Book an appointment so we can help you find the right treatment for your needs!
What Should I Expect During an Implant Consultation?
In the first step, we will ask questions about your dental and medical history. We will also ask you about your goals for your dental treatment. This is done to fully understand your treatment goals and needs and to determine if you’re considered a healthy candidate for dental implants.
The dentist will explain the treatment options available to you and which ones they believe will meet your needs. They will also go over the risks and benefits of each procedure and answer any questions you may have about dentistry.
A thorough examination of your smile, mouth, natural teeth, gums, and jaw bone will be conducted. A qualified dentist will check if you have sufficient bone density and if you have suffered from bone loss. They will also perform an overall assessment of your oral hygiene. Detailed images, impressions (moulds), and X-rays may also be taken to gain information on your oral condition.
Once you and the dentist have decided on a procedure, they will develop a treatment plan. This will include which natural teeth need to be managed, when the procedure takes place, how long it will take, the need for additional treatment like bone grafting, and what you can expect afterwards. They may also discuss the costs and fees with you at this time.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Implant Consultation
Dental implants work by serving as a replacement for your tooth roots. They are titanium screws surgically placed into your jaw bone and act as anchors for your false teeth or replacement teeth. They can support crowns (a single tooth), bridges (several teeth), or a full denture (a whole arch of teeth).
Once in place, your implants will fuse with your jawbone over time to provide a strong, stable replacement for your normal teeth. Through this process, they feel and can function just like your real teeth.
The exact number of visits needed will be determined by your case and implant treatment plan. However, most people can expect to need to come in for two to three visits. After an initial visit for your consultation, you will need to come for your surgical procedure. During this step, your implants will be placed.
After a few months of healing, you will return for another visit. This is when the artificial teeth will be attached to your implants.
- Choose a date when you can have enough rest.
This is so you can focus on your recovery days after surgery.
- Prepare soft foods in advance.
You must follow a soft diet for the first few days after surgery.
- If you smoke, quit weeks before your surgery.
Smoking can impede healing and increase the risk of complications.
- Get enough rest the night preceding your oral surgery.
This will help you feel relaxed and ready for the treatment process.
- Take the preoperative medication as prescribed.
The process may be an invasive procedure. Preoperative medication can help make the procedures go smoothly.
- Practise good oral hygiene.
To keep your smile healthy and clean before your procedure, brush and floss your healthy teeth regularly.
Your dental practitioner will likely take the following steps for your surgical procedure:
- Numb the area around your tooth.
You will be given local anaesthesia to keep you from feeling pain during the surgery.
- Make an incision.
Your dentist will make a small incision in your gums to expose the bone.
- Make a hole in the bone.
A dental drill is used to make a hole in your jaw bone.
- Place the implant post.
The titanium post is placed into the hole in your bone.
- Suture the gums.
The incisions are closed with stitches.
- Place the temporary crown.
A temporary crown is placed on top of the post until the implant has healed.
Your dentist may give you a temporary crown while you are waiting for your implant to heal. This is usually not necessary, as the gap left by the lost tooth will be small and not noticeable. In some cases, however, a temporary tooth may be helpful for aesthetics or to prevent adjacent teeth from shifting position.
This will depend on your case and what your qualified health practitioner recommends. Some clinics offer sedation dentistry, while some don’t. In many cases, a local anaesthetic is enough to ensure you feel no pain or discomfort. If you are an anxious patient or have other special conditions, your dentist may suggest sedation.

It’s important to note that these prices are estimates, and an accurate price quote will be given during your consultation. Dental implants are an excellent investment in oral health and generally have high success rates.
