Ironside Advanced Dental offers dental implants to help you regain the feel, form and function of your smile.
Are you missing one or more teeth? If left for too long, your missing teeth could cause other issues within the mouth. This can include:
- teeth shifting (which results in crooked teeth)
- gum disease
- tooth decay
Ironside Advanced Dental in Sydney offers dental implants. This treatment is one of the most effective restorative dental treatments.
Dental implants are a straightforward treatment. Our staff have invested in equipment, training and systems so the procedure is completed to the highest 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 effectively. 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 do dental implants work?
Dental implants are made from strong biocompatible titanium. This effectively replicates the strength, structure and composition of your natural teeth. Surgically inserted into the site of tooth loss, they act as a replacement tooth root. This results in a replacement that looks, feels and functions like your natural teeth.
What are the benefits of dental implants?
Dental implants can provide amazing benefits to patients, including:
- Restore your natural bite, tooth function and aesthetic appeal.
- Implants look and feel authentic.
- They aid with biting pressure.
- They function like genuine teeth. So you can enjoy your favourite foods again.
- They are durable and long lasting.
- Dental implants can help to prevent bone loss. Which allows you to maintain a healthy facial structure.

Frequently asked questions about dental implants
With the use of anaesthetic dental implant treatment shouldn’t hurt
Most dental implant patients say the procedure doesn’t hurt and the discomfort is minimal. A local anaesthetic is used during the surgery. The bone where the implant is placed does not have many pain-sensing nerves.
You may experience mild discomfort for a few days post-surgery
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.
The dental implant can last a lifetime
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.
Dental implants are made from a metal that your body shouldn’t reject
Dental implants are made from biocompatible metal. And this type of dental implant has been used for the last 30 years. Dr Jim Ironside refers his patients to an oral surgeon who works in the same building to help ensure the best quality results.
The biocompatible metal is accepted by the body and acts as a strong and sturdy tooth root. Which happens when your jawbone fuses with the implant. This process, known as osseointegration, gives implants the stability and strength to support replacement teeth.
Implant teeth are made from metal and so cannot decay
Implant teeth cannot decay. Or ache. If you neglect your oral health the gums around the implant may become infected. Which will cause you pain. And possibly result in the loss of teeth, and even the implant itself.
Organising a consultation with Dr Jim Ironside will allow you to make an educated decision. A decision based on suitability, price, and recovery time.
