Toothsome Dental Implants: Trusted Dental Implant Therapy in Sydney
Welcome to Toothsome! We are an expert team who are passionate about restoring and rejuvenating the foundation of your smile. We focus on procedures that prevent and treat gum disease and replace missing teeth. One of the best ways to restore your smile after tooth loss is through dental implants.
What happens when you get dental implants? Sydney Dental Surgeon Dr. David Willis and Specialist Periodontist Dr. Patty Chou break down the process:
Your first implant appointment will be at a Toothsome clinic in either Chatswood or Baulkham Hills in Sydney and it will take less than an hour.
At this visit, you will:
● Have your oral health thoroughly examined
● Discuss your treatment possibilities with Dr Chou or Dr Willis
● Get the answers to all of your questions and concerns
● Receive x-rays, a CT scan and/or any other necessary diagnostic imaging (if you’ve decided for us to go ahead with creating a detailed treatment plan)
Your Sydney implant surgery should be completed within a single appointment. Either Dr Willis or Dr Chou will drill a hole into your jaw bone to seat the implant. This can either be done using flapless ‘keyhole style’ surgery through the gum, or by carefully cutting the gum and exposing the bone underneath. Once attached, everything is closed up and you’ll go home with instructions for recovery. The surgery is relatively quick and you can opt to have this procedure under conscious sedation or under a general anaesthetic if you prefer.
In some cases, it’s possible to put a restoration on the dental implant the day you get it. Most of the time, however, it’s advisable to wait 6-8 weeks until your implant is fully healed, and the bone tissue has integrated with the implant. You’ll be able to visit us free of charge for a follow-up after your implant surgery so that we can see how you and your implant are doing. You can also call us any time of the day if you have a concern about your implant post-surgery.
At Toothsome, we’re pleased to work with your regular Sydney dentist in coordinating your dental implant treatment. Your dentist or prosthodontist will design the crown, bridge or denture that rests on top of your new implants. By collaborating with other dental professionals, we strive to make sure your finished implant suits the fit and aesthetics of your entire smile.

Straumann Dental Implant – Our Choice!
Straumann implants are the implant type we like to work with. Our preferred implant system, in particular, is the Straumann Roxolid SLActive. This is the one that we’ve found to give the best results and one that’s backed by decades of evidence-based research. We’re confident that this is one of the best implants you’ll find here in Sydney. That said, when working in conjunction with your personal dentist, we can place any kind of dental implants Sydney practitioners prefer to use.
