Dental Implants


Dental Implants, also known as endosseous implants, are titanium replacements for missing teeth which are surgically implanted into the jaw bone.

Prosthetic teeth (also known as crowns) are firmly attached to the dental implant which is secured into the jaw, and is not removable. Dental implants are considered the gold standard in the replacement of missing teeth, providing a better, more comfortable and attractive solution than traditional dentures. Most people with dental implants describe the feel is much closer to natural teeth than with dentures.

Adelaide MaxFax – The Team Approach to Dental Implant Treatment

Adelaide MaxFax firmly believes in a Team Approach when managing patients requiring oral reconstruction with dental implants.

We strongly believe the best long term, functional and aesthetic outcomes are achieved when patients receive care from a multi-disciplinary team. This is evidence based and has been confirmed by numerous studies in both the medical and dental academic literature.

The best team to complete your care should be your dentist and/or a specialist prosthodontist, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon, and a dental technician. All have their specific skill sets which, when combined, give the patient the best possible results.

A dental implant consists of three parts:

The Fixture (made of titanium) is surgically placed in the jawbone below the gum.

The Abutment (made of titanium), emerges through the gum, and is a separate component. The abutment is attached to the fixture which acts as the foundation for the prosthetic tooth (prosthesis).

The Prosthetic Tooth (made of white, tooth coloured ceramic) or teeth (prosthesis).

There are several types of dental prosthesis:

  • A single prosthetic tooth (implant retained crown)

  • Several prosthetic teeth in a row (implant retained bridge)

  • A full set of prosthetic teeth, held in place by several implants (implant retained denture)
