What are dental implants and why may I choose undergo treatment with Dentist Implants in Melbourne?
Dental implants are a form of restorative dentistry that aims to mimic the natural tooth’s root and crown. Restorative dentistry essentially focusses on restoring the mouth’s natural function, and aims to restore it to the best condition possible. Dental implants can be used for the replacement of single as well as multiple teeth (and even whole rows of teeth) within the mouth. Individuals may decide to think about dental implants after having lost teeth, either due to an incident, such as falling off a bike, for example, or due to health problems, such as gum disease, which is extremely common. Individuals may choose dental implants over alternatives (such as dentures) as they are more stable, and a long term dental option. Dental implants can also be used to stabilise dentures, to ensure they are more durable for the patient.
What is the process of getting Dentist Implants in Melbourne?
The dental implant process may differ greatly between each clinic, and each individual’s case. At our clinic, we aim to offer our patients the simplest and most comfortable process when it comes to their dental treatment with our Dentist Implants in Melbourne. In terms of the dental implant process, initially the root of the tooth has to be completely clear. A small titanium screw is inserted within the jawbone, aiming to replicate the root of the new artificial tooth. The stabilising aspect of the dental implant is the abutment (which is also commonly referred to as a connector). The crown can only be inserted within the mouth when the area is completely healed, a temporary solution may be adhered during this transition period. Arguably the most important aspect of the dental implant is the porcelain crown. The porcelain crown is the ‘tooth’ part of the dental implant, and is unique to each patient. At our clinic we make each porcelain crown specifically for each patient, meaning that the shape and the shade of the tooth is matched to the surrounding teeth already in the mouth.
What are the life benefits of undergoing dental implants at our clinic in Melbourne?
Our dental implants have many benefits, one of which is their stability in comparison to other alternatives. Dental implants are unique in the way that the aftercare, once they have healed, does not differ from the hygiene routine for natural teeth. When dental implants are cared for properly, they can last a very long time. Dental implants at our clinic have strengthening bone properties, and can retain the mouth’s normal functioning.
