What’s on offer with dental implants in Melbourne?
At High Dental Implants in Melbourne, we can replace your missing teeth with dental implants whether you have lost one, a few or all of your teeth. This is the only tooth restoration method that replaces the root as well as the crown of the tooth, giving it significant advantages over bridges and dentures, which we’ll get to later on.
Single tooth implant
Our implant dentist will fit a small, titanium screw into your jaw, in a minor surgical procedure. This is similar to having a filling and you’ll experience only minor discomfort. We use local anaesthetic to numb the implant site, and, you can also opt for sedation if dental treatment makes you feel nervous.
After the implant has integrated with the jawbone over several weeks, we will then fit you with a replacement crown that will blend in seamlessly with your natural set.
Dental implants in Melbourne for several missing teeth
You don’t need one implant to replace each missing tooth. If you have a few missing in a row, one implant can support a bridge to replace multiple teeth. This means that you don’t have to lose neighbouring healthy teeth, as you do with a traditional bridge. And if you are wearing a partial denture, you get back the chewing power of natural teeth, and don’t have to keep taking your pearly whites out to clean.
These implants support a whole set of teeth. Just 4-6 implants per arch can hold up a set of dentures. We use a procedure called All-on-4 for denture stabilisation.
This means that you can eat what you like again, as implant-retained teeth have the same functionality as natural ones. No more soft food diet and avoiding those crispy roast potatoes. This procedure will also help to maintain the structure of your face. Once you lose your tooth roots, your face starts to sag. With implant-supported dentures, your facial structure is maintained, giving your face a more youthful look.
