Discreet, permanent solution to tooth loss
Dental implants have been used by dentists for over 20 years as a permanent solution to tooth loss. However, many people still are unaware of them due to one significant factor, you can’t tell when someone has dental implants. In Melbourne, these innovative little titanium posts create a strong anchor for crowns, bridges or dentures. This means tooth replacements act just like our natural teeth without any embarrassing slippages that may be experienced with dentures. You may not be aware that dental implants bring many advantages over unsecured tooth replacements, so here are 3 reasons for investing in implants as a permanent solution to tooth loss.
In Melbourne, dental implants are placed in your jawbone during a simple surgery. They look like small screws and are made from titanium, which is biocompatible. This is a significant factor in their success as this compatibility actively encourages bone growth and gum health. Once implanted, your jawbone will start to grow around the surface of the screw, securing it in place. Once fully healed, a tooth replacement such as a crown, bridge or denture will be fixed to the implant. This creates stability for your replacement teeth so that full bite force is restored. Dental implants, unlike unsecured dentures, bridges or crowns, give you the freedom to eat anything you like, including steak.
A single tooth through to all of your teeth can be replaced using dental implants. One implant will hold up to 3 teeth using a bridge, whilst All-on-4 options can support an entire denture with just 4 dental implants. Since we have developed a special interest in implants, High Dental Implants Melbourne, can work with almost any issue presented using implants, thanks to our experience and knowledge.
Nearly all dental implants create permanent solutions to tooth loss. Some denture stabilisation techniques still require dentures to be removed for cleaning. However, most are permanently in place. This creates a discreet experience of tooth replacement as you brush and floss as normal. In addition, dental implants in Melbourne can last a significantly longer time than tooth replacements without implants. With proper care, they can last many decades with only your porcelain crowns needing to be replaced periodically.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
