What is osseointegration in Perth?

The process of osseointegration was discovered in 1960
by a Swedish researcher, Per-Ingvar Brånemark.

Once a dental implant has osseointegrated, it can be used to support a prosthetic such as a single tooth to a full arch (with multiple implants).

Dental implants help to

  • Improve speech better than poor fitting dentures that tend to slip and slide, causing problems with phonetics.
  • Improve comfort, as dental implants become a part of you and will eliminate the discomfort of removable dentures.
  • Improve the way you eat and chew, allowing you to break down food more comfortably as compared to removable dentures.
  • Improve your appearance and offer support for your facial features. Dental implants allow for the retention of the jawbone, unlike removable dentures.
  • When a dental implant is placed into the jawbone bone cells attach themselves to the surface of the titanium and bone forms onto the thread component. This essentially locks the implant in place.
