Lost a tooth? Same-day appointments available

Missing teeth can be a serious confidence blow. Many will be aware of the damage one or more missing teeth can do to one’s confidence, but the negative effects don’t stop there, and can even contribute to broader health risks.
Dental implant candidate. Recovery was successful and the patient was very happy with the results. The healing period took four months.

Need an emergency tooth replacement?

If a tooth has been knocked out by accident, dental avulsion can occur. In this case, it’s important to locate the missing tooth as this may be able to be re-inserted.

Store the lost tooth in a container containing either saliva or milk.

However, the most common cases we see here at our implant clinic often result in avulsed tooths unable to be saved.

In these severe cases, Dr Ali Rifai, our principal dentist may recommend an artificial tooth replacement, otherwise known as a dental implant.

Dental implants can extraordinarily replace and restore the dental structure and function of your mouth. Long-lasting, durable and stable, they offer a better alternative to uncomfortable and loose dentures.
