The convenience of dental implants in Melbourne
Losing a tooth (or many) permanently can be a very daunting experience that can stress even the calmest person. Missing teeth are not only unattractive, but they hinder your ability to eat, speak and digest properly. For that matter, people with missing teeth have now more options than ever when it comes to replacing the gaps in their smile.
At High Dental Implants, we firmly believe that dental implants are a flexible, effective, quick and convenient solution against tooth loss. Dental implants in Melbourne have been growing in popularity in recent years, and nowadays, patients with missing teeth are more eager than ever to try the innovative implant solutions our implant dentists have to offer.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants take the place of missing teeth – to be more precise, they replace missing tooth roots. These replacements consist of a titanium, screw-shaped base, a connector (also known as an abutment) and a crown (this can be a denture or bridge depending on the type of implant technology employed). The dental implant process is typically completed in two stages (unless you opt for All-on-4 or same day dental implants). Your dentist will drill a small hole in your jawbone and carefully screw the implant base into the bone tissue. The gum then covers the dental implant so it can heal. This process can take from a few weeks to several months and once the bone tissue has healed, the dentist will place the connector and the crown on top of the dental implants, giving the patients a new smile.
Why are dental implants convenient?
Dental implants in Melbourne are flexible for many reasons. For starters, they are incorporated into your jawbone and act just like your real teeth. They do not require special care and do not need to be removed every night like dentures. Dental implants do not become loose, are not painful and do not create sores in your mouth. With proper care and maintenance, they can last for many years and that’s the reason why many patients feel that they are getting more out of them compared to other, more traditional tooth-replacement options.
