Titanium dental implants Melbourne for optimal tooth replacement
Dental implants Melbourne are the gold standard in replacing missing teeth. If you have lost a tooth from neglecting your dental health, an accident or an injury then you need to speak to us at High Dental Implants Melbourne to find out more. Dental implants Melbourne have been used for almost 60 years. They are small, titanium screws that replace the root of your missing tooth. Titanium is the choice of metal for dental implants, because it is strong, lightweight, non corrosive, and most importantly, it is biocompatible. This means that it is suitable for replacing parts of the human body and is readily accepted by the body without any adverse reactions. Any reactions to titanium are very rare and also minor. Rather the benefits are lifelong. If you replace a missing tooth with a dental implant, then it can last for the rest of your life.
If you lose a tooth, it is important that you speak to us at High Dental Implants Melbourne as soon as possible to replace the missing tooth. First we will examine your remaining teeth and gums, make sure that they are healthy and decide whether or not they are in need of any dental treatment. If so, this can be carried out before replacing your missing tooth for best results. We will examine the site of the missing tooth and make sure that it has healed completely. It can take a few months for the area to heal before it is ready for you to replace your missing tooth. If your tooth is replaced too early, then it may not be successful. Therefore our dentist will make sure that the dental implant surgery is done at the correct time for optimal results.
Dental implant surgery
Dental implant surgery is an invasive surgical procedure which is carried out over an hour or two hours under local anaesthetic and further sedation where necessary. For nervous patients and patients suffering from dental phobia you can find out about the different types of sedation that are available for you. In complicated cases, dental implant surgery can even be carried out under general anaesthetic. However, this may need to be done in a hospital.
Our dentist will put together an individually tailored treatment plan for you. This means carrying out diagnostic imaging, including X-rays and an intraoral scan, where necessary, to find out how the implant will be positioned, the size of implant that you need, (specifically, the width and height) and how many implants are needed to replace your missing teeth. You may need a single implant to replace one missing tooth or two or three adjacent missing teeth. You may need multiple implants to replace missing teeth that are positioned in different places around your mouth, or you may need 8 to 12 implants to replace your full mouth of teeth. Teeth can be replaced with a crown, a set of partial dentures or a set of full dentures. Speak to us at High Dental Implants Melbourne today to find out more.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
