No smile is beyond hope. Our premium dental practice, Ironside Advanced Dental, is focused on helping our patients regain the feel, form and function of their smiles.
Are you missing one or more teeth? If left for too long, your missing teeth could cause other issues within the mouth such as teeth shifting (which results in crooked teeth), gum disease and tooth decay. At Ironside Advanced Dental in Sydney, we offer one of the most revolutionary restorative dental treatments used to date: dental implants.
Dental implants are a straightforward treatment and our superior staff have invested in equipment, training and systems to ensure that the procedure is completed to the highest possible standard. We understand the damage a missing tooth can cause to the mouth, such as:
- Loss of structural support – resulting in weakened or loose tooth and heightened risk of further tooth loss
- Loss of stimulation to the jawbone – resulting in bone loss
- Loss of cleaning surface – heightening the risk of gum disease and tooth decay
Tooth loss needs to be treated as quickly and effectively as possible. Dental implants are one of the most effective, long-term and functional treatments used to replace a missing tooth! They can restore your beautiful smile and help you to regain the ability to eat more comfortably.
How dental implants work
Dental implants are made from strong biocompatible materials to effectively replicate the strength, structure and composition of your natural teeth. They are surgically inserted into the site of tooth loss and act as a replacement tooth root. This results in a replacement that looks, feels and functions just like your natural teeth!

Dental Implant FAQS
Fear of pain at the dentist is extremely common. However, most dental implant patients say the procedure doesn’t hurt and the discomfort is minimal. A local anaesthetic is used, which means you are awake during the surgery. You shouldn’t feel any pain during the surgery since the bone where the implant is placed does not have many pain-sensing nerves.
Immediately after the surgery and for a few days following, you will likely experience some discomfort. After all, this is a major dental procedure. However, any pain you have should be manageable. Discomfort may be felt in the chin, cheeks, or underneath the eyes. You may also experience bruising of the skin and gums, pain at the implant site, and minor bleeding. Painkillers recommended by Dr Ironside should be used as directed.
If a patient receives regular dental check-ups twice a year and keeps up to date with general dental hygiene, the implant itself can last a lifetime.
When performed by a trained and experienced dentist like Dr Jim Ironside, dental implant surgery is one of the safest and most predictable procedures in dentistry. Contemporary dental implants have been in use for more than 30 years.
Dental implants are typically made of titanium, a biocompatible material that is accepted by the body and serves as a strong and sturdy foundation for replacement teeth. Your natural bone locks the implant into place by fusing, or attaching itself, to the implant. This process, known as osseointegration, gives implants the stability and strength to support replacement teeth.
Organising a consultation with Dr Jim Ironside will allow you to make an educated decision. A decision based on suitability, price, and recovery time.
