Welcome to the start of your dental implant journey
If you are thinking about getting dental implants in Melbourne, you are taking the first step of what can sometimes be quite a long journey. Of course, at High Dental Implants Melbourne, we do our best to keep that journey as short as possible, but you need to know that it will be some time before you can eat whatever you like.
The good news with dental implants in Melbourne is that you will get your full chewing power back, but only after your dental implants have fused with your jawbone, and this takes time.
The time factor
There are 2 reasons why dental implants in Melbourne take time. The first is that this is a multi-stage treatment. It starts with an in-depth consultation, during which we take a good look at the condition of your jawbone. We also take lots of measurements so that we can plan your treatment in detail.
If your jawbone is in good condition, we can progress to inserting your dental implants as the next stage.
If, however, your jawbone has deteriorated, we may need to do some preparatory work to augment the bone, with grafting or a sinus lift. If this happens, we then need to give the grafts some weeks to take.
Also, once we have put your dental implants in, they need time, somewhere between 2-6 months, to fuse with your jawbone. Only when your jawbone has grown new tissue all over the implant can you then start chewing with full force. Until then, it’s best to remain on a soft food diet.
Same day teeth
These days, it is possible to get a full set of crowns fitted on the same day as you have your dental implants put in. These are temporary crowns and you can’t chew on them the way you will be able to when we put your permanent crowns on.
It may all seem like a hassle, but getting dental implants in Melbourne is well worth the journey. Why not book a consultation with the implant dentist now and get started on those first steps to freedom?
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
