Your Local Sunshine Coast Dental Implant Dentist
Dental Implants Designed For You
Missing or broken teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile and if left untreated can lead to complicated, painful (and often expensive) dental issues in the future. From bone loss, periodontal disease, and infections that may affect a person’s ability to eat or speak, it is important to fill in gaps as soon as possible! At Doonan Dental, we offer the latest technology and techniques in Dental Implants for Sunshine Coast patients.
Dr Keith Doonan and our specialist team will place a dental implant screw into the jawbone that will act as an artificial root that keeps the bone and soft tissues stabilised and stimulated. The result is natural looking, long lasting dental solution that can withstand the normal chewing actions of natural teeth. Once the implant fuses to the jawbone, it stays in place and you can eat without restrictions!

The Dental Implant Solution
Dental Implants are an ideal solution for replacing mission teeth and is the only dental restoration procedure that acts to preserve natural bone and helps stimulate new growth.
Similar to natural teeth, dental implants consist of a root and a crown. The root is a titanium screw that is implanted permanently and securely into the jawbone. The crown, the visible portion of a tooth, is a ceramic or porcelain tooth that is designed to fill the gap. With a natural colour and shape, it is designed to seamlessly fit in with the surrounding teeth.
With a host of considerations, dental implant procedures can be a daunting process. However, With a Masters in Prosthodontics and years of experience in the dental industry, Dr Keith Doonan is a specialist that can provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision.
The Miracle of Osseointegration
Discovered in the 1950’s by professor Per-Ingvar Brankemark, Osseointegration is the anchorage and integration of a titanium implant into bone. Offering a number of benefits, this discovery and subsequent innovation changed the dental field.
Today, it has become a dental standard and is frequently used in dental implants and reconstructive surgery. Osseointegration has improved the lives of millions around the world and is the reason many patients enjoy a healthy, happy smile.

Dr Keith Doonan, a dental implant expert of North Brisbane, discusses what implants are, why they are often a favoured option for missing teeth, and what is involved in preparing and fitting them.
Dental implants are the most successful form of treatment available for the replacement of missing teeth. They look and feel more like natural teeth than any other option available.
It is possible to fit a dental implant in just one day! However, we would recommend you follow a slower path, which is more predictable and costs less. After all, this is something we hope will last you for a very long time! Usually, we will wait 6-12 weeks after taking the tooth out before placing the implant.
When we place the implant we wait around 6-12 weeks for the bone to attach to it.
It usually takes around 2 to 4 weeks to make the final crown. There are a number of factors that can cause the process of fitting a dental implant to take longer but in general we can complete an implant in around 3 to 6 months depending on the complexity. Or we can do it in a day in certain specific situations if you are willing to accept an increased chance of complications and expense.
Dental implants should not be placed until growth has stopped, which is usually around 18 years of age. Most patients who are in good general health with good oral hygiene, are suitable for dental implants although a thorough oral and medical assessment is required to make the final decision.
There are a number of factors that might slightly increase the chance of implants not working as well as they should, these include:
• lack of bone
• an active periodontal disease
• poorly controlled diabetes
• bisphosphonate medication
• poor oral hygiene
• certain systemic disease
Dental implants have been around since ancient Egyptian times. Keith has said that “It is believed they were not used on men as they have only been found in mummies!”
It is only since they have been made from Titanium Metal that they have achieved a high level of success and predictability. This began around 1960 in Sweden and Italy.
Type 4 Titanium is the strongest form of commercially pure titanium available. Some implants are made from Type 5 Titanium Alloy which is not commercially pure
