Replacing your missing teeth using dental implants Melbourne

It is important that you maintain excellent dental hygiene and visit the dentist at least once every six months to prevent cavities, tooth decay and gum disease from developing and causing irreversible damage to your teeth. Despite the many advances in dental technology, our natural teeth are the best, and nothing will ever be as good as the real thing. This is why you need to look after your original teeth to the best of your ability, so that they can last for the whole of your life. When looked after properly teeth have actually been designed to last forever. It is when you neglect your dental hygiene, avoid the dentist, eat unhealthy food such as sugary snacks and drinks, practise poor lifestyle choices such as smoking and excessive drinking, that you lose your teeth at an early age. Even in your old age, if you have looked after your teeth properly all your life, then they can continue to work as effectively as they did when you were younger. replace-missing-teeth

Losing a tooth can be very distressing as an adult. It can be embarrassing and it can be quite traumatic. If you have avoided the dentist for a long period of time and tooth decay or gum disease has affected your teeth, then it is important to remember that you can lose your remaining teeth very quickly as well. To prevent doing so you need to book an appointment with us at High Dental Implants Melbourne immediately and find out about replacing your missing teeth. Restoring missing teeth can be carried out in many different ways.

Traditional dentures

One of the most traditional methods of replacing missing teeth is with a set of dentures. The dentures are convenient, and since the recent advances in dental technology, they can be aesthetically pleasing, however, they are not a permanent solution rather they are a quick fix. They are ideal for older patients who do not want to undergo dental implant surgery and they allow you to restore a certain extent of the function and appearance of your mouth.

Dental implants as an alternative

Here, at High Dental Implants Melbourne, we recommend dental implants Melbourne for replacing your missing teeth. Dental implants Melbourne can be used in adult patients of all ages. They are small, titanium screws that replace the root of your missing tooth and help restore the full function and appearance of your mouth. Where natural teeth are mobile, dental implants Melbourne are a fixed structure and therefore they will feel even stronger than your natural teeth. This method can then be used to replace your tooth with a crown or a set of partial or full dentures, depending on how many teeth you need replacing. The first dental implant surgery carried out in the 1960s in a human patient lasted for 40 years. Since then much research and development has been carried out into titanium oral implants and they continue to be long lasting and one of the best ways of replacing missing teeth. Speak to us at High Dental Implants Melbourne to find out if you can restore your missing teeth with dental implants too.

All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
