What types of Dental Implants in Melbourne do you offer at your dental clinic in Melbourne?
At our dental clinic in Melbourne we offer our patients a wide variety of dental implant treatments, whether they have lost just one, several, or a whole row of teeth from within the mouth. We offer single dental implants for those who may have lost a tooth either through an accident (such as falling off a bike for example), or through oral diseases such as gum disease.
How do single Dental Implants in Melbourne work?
Dental implants consist of three aspects, the first of which is the base. The base of the dental implant, which is a tiny titanium screw that is inserted within the jaw, supports the abutment and the porcelain crown. The abutment of the dental implant, which is also commonly referred to as the connector, connects the crown and the base together. The crown is the more aesthetically pleasing part of the dental implant, and is uniquely made to suit each individual, based on the shape and shade of the patient’s surrounding teeth. Single dental implants are simple, and the screw is inserted into the jawbone by your dentist in order to ensure maximum stability, as well as ensuring fusion and strength within the bone. The abutment may be adhered to the screw immediately after the screw is inserted, although this depends greatly on the patient’s individual case.
What are the life benefits of undergoing Dental Implants in Melbourne?
There are several benefits of undergoing this particular form of dentistry, one of which is the ability of the dental implants to blend in with the surrounding natural teeth. Patients who have undergone this form of dentistry can be assured that if looked after correctly, dental implants can last a long time. Dental implants ensure that face function is restored due to the fusion of the bone to the screw.
What if I have lost more than one tooth?
Individuals who may have lost several teeth (or even whole rows of teeth within the mouth) can choose to undergo all-on-four dental implants. All-on-four implants can be used as a resolution for dentures which patients may find are unstable and frustrating when they have to be frequently removed. All-on-four dental implants are used at our clinic using a CT scanner, these place and locate the dental implants within the top and bottom rows in the mouth. Four dental implants can be used to support two whole rows of porcelain crowns.
What are the life benefits of all-on-four dental implants in Melbourne?
All-on-four dental implants offer stable dental fixtures within the mouth that give patients the freedom to complete daily dental tasks (such as cleaning, eating, and drinking) without the hassle of dentures. Dental implants can last patients a lifetime if they are monitored and taken care of with correct care.
Why do I feel nervous about visiting the dentist?
Individuals may feel nervous for a wide variety of reasons, one of which could be due to an irrational fear of the dentist (also commonly referred to as a phobia). At our clinic we aim to make our patients feel at ease and have a number of methods to do this which can help every patient we encounter.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
