High Dental Implants Melbourne on losing a tooth
We here at High Dental Implants Melbourne, know that losing a tooth can be devastating, not only for your self-esteem, but for your oral health as well. There are many implications that people don’t really think about after they have lost a tooth which can have serious detrimental effects on their overall health.
For example, you are at risk of infection at the site of a missing tooth as the sensitive and delicate gum is exposed to cuts and bacteria. People find that they avoid eating certain foods or eat only on one side to avoid the pain that comes with jabbing a crisp into the raw tissue or needing to fish out berry seeds from inside their gums.
Another flow on effect that we professionals have noticed in regards to oral health and general health and well-being, is that people who have lost teeth and do not replace them seem to have worse nutrition.
We can suppose that people begin to eat what their mouth lets them eat rather than what their body says they need to. The devastating effects of this natural reaction can be huge and we would prefer to simply sort out the problem at its root rather than have you suffer needlessly.
At High Dental Implants Melbourne, we work in quickly and easily replacing people’s missing teeth with dental implants. These are small titanium screws that act as a replacement tooth root, integrating with the tissues and jaw bone to create a strong and stable place for a crown to sit.
Here is how they work
We surgically place the screw into your jawbone. We use digital scanners to precisely pinpoint the exact location where the screw should be placed for minimal healing time and maximum comfort. The use of this technology has greatly reduced the number of rejections and we can be confident in using a figure of around 98% success rates for our patients.
Reasons for complications generally revolve around poor health or hygiene which lead to infection and gradual rejection of the implant. We simply stress that you take the initiative and come and see us if you feel like something doesn’t feel right for you.
Depending on the condition of your mouth, we may be able to place the crown, (which is the false tooth that you actually see), immediately onto the implant or you may need to wait several weeks in order to allow the implant to fuse with your bone and heal.
This implant ‘abutment’ will be a perfect fit in your mouth in terms of shape, size and colour and to the naked eye, should be indistinguishable from your natural teeth. It will be a completely functional tooth that you can use to chew and eat in comfort.
Not only will you be left with a beautiful, full natural smile that you can proudly share with the world again, your mouth will be restored to full function and your jawbone density will be maintained which will allow you to keep the integral structure of your face in shape.
