In the past, a missing tooth was restored by a dental bridge, which involves cutting two good teeth adjacent to the missing tooth site for placement of a three unit bridge.
During the last 10 years, dental implants have become a very popular and well-received solution for replacing missing tooth/teeth.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are artificial tooth root replacements made of titanium, which are surgically placed into the jaw to replace missing roots so that crowns or bridges can be placed.

What do Dental Implant procedures involve?
There will be an initial consultation with Dr. Andrew Sih, followed by x-rays and study models. After careful consideration, studies, and discussions, a treatment plan with its corresponding costs will be prepared and presented.
Dr. Terry Yuen, Bondi Dental’s Oral Surgeon and Implantologist, will surgically place the titanium implants into the jaw. Integration will take about 4-6 months, during which time temporary tooth or teeth will be placed as appropriate.
3. Prosthetic placement of tooth/teeth
Dr. Andrew Sih will expose the implant, take impressions and create a model upon which new crowns or bridges are based. Because the implants are integrated into the jaw bone, the replacement tooth/teeth will look, feel, and function just like your own natural tooth/teeth.
