Restore your smile with Dental Implants
What Are Dental Implants?
There’s no need to have gaps in your smile. Dental implants in Melbourne enable you to replace a lost tooth without bridges or dentures.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the root portion of a missing tooth and are bonded to the jaw to secure a replacement tooth. Implants can be used to replace one or many missing teeth or to make a denture more stable.
How do Dental Implants Work?
Dental implants are small titanium posts that replace the root portion of a missing tooth. The implant bonds to the jaw bone and becomes the base for the replacement tooth. Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth.
- Posts are surgically placed below the gums
- Artificial teeth, grouped on a bridge, are mounted to the posts
- Implants offer a very stable and secure fit
- Implants serve as a base for single replacement teeth
Why have Implants?
Clinical studies have proven that implants impart the greatest comfort and quality of life, as the method to replace lost teeth. Dentures and bridges mounted to implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth, therefore your ability to eat and speak are not affected.
Implants help to prevent bone loss in the jaw and no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place.
How long do they last?
Dental Implants can last a lifetime depending on the care you put into keeping your teeth and gums healthy.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
