Swap your dentures for dental implants in Melbourne
Many people who wear dentures have experienced the awkwardness of them coming loose or spent years avoiding certain sticky foods. At High Dental Implants Melbourne, we believe in offering a range of alternative treatments so that you have a choice when it comes to replacing your missing teeth. Teeth can fall out naturally as we age or sooner due to bad oral hygiene. Sometimes people will lose teeth in an accident or sporting injury, but regardless of why you have lost your teeth, we are certain that having dental implants in Melbourne could improve the appearance of your smile. If you think that this treatment could benefit you then book a consultation appointment and speak to one of our dental professionals today. They will be able to answer any questions that you have and ensure that you are suitable for this treatment.
Avoid bone deterioration and a sunken appearance
When you opt to have dental implants in Melbourne your implant dentist will explain everything that you need to know about the treatment, starting with how it works. Unlike dentures, this treatment enables your jawbone to continue to be stimulated even after you have lost teeth. This is because of the nature of the treatment. You will have multiple titanium screws inserted into your jawbone where the root of your missing tooth once was. You will not need one tooth implant per tooth when you are replacing a full set of teeth, as this is possible to do using as little as four implants. These screws act as the roots of your teeth, stimulating the bone around them. This prevents your jawbone from deteriorating over time, ensuring that your face does not start to have a sunken appearance and that you do not have to deal with premature ageing.
Bite and chew whatever food you fancy
Dentures can often pose issues when you want to eat certain foods. Dental implants in Melbourne give you the freedom to eat whatever you want without the worry of them coming loose or becoming wedged in food. This is due to the fact that your dentures are now attached securely to your tooth implants, unable to move or come loose. Your new teeth will act and look exactly like your original ones as well as being made from materials that mimic the feel of your natural teeth. In most cases, people may not even be able to tell that you have had treatment unless you tell them as they appear so natural.
Durable, long-lasting teeth for you to enjoy
Once you have your new teeth it is extremely important to take proper care of them. Your implant dentist will explain how to brush your teeth properly and what brushes are suitable for you to use. You should clean your teeth twice a day, and if you take good care of your new teeth they are capable of lasting upwards of ten years. For some patients, once they have their tooth implants they will last for the rest of their life. In some cases, you may need to replace your dentures if they become damaged, but the material they are made from is extremely durable.
