Why choose dental implants Melbourne to replace your missing teeth?
Dental implants Melbourne are the most popular method of replacing missing teeth amongst dentists and patients alike, because they have significant advantages in comparison to other tooth replacement options. To begin with you need to find out if dental implants are suitable for you. You will need to undergo a very thorough examination of your teeth and gums by our dentist to make sure that the rest of them are free of signs of tooth decay or gum disease. You will need to undergo any general dental treatment before replacing your missing teeth and if necessary you may need a bone graft and a gum graft to replace missing bone or gum lost as a result of poor oral health or even as a result of missing teeth. The longer you wait to replace a missing tooth the more complicated the process can be.
The benefits of dental implants
Dental implants Melbourne are the most popular type of tooth replacement because they have an excellent success rate. The success rate for dental implants Melbourne in 2023 is over 97%. Our dentist will make sure that dental implants are suitable for you. If there is a chance that dental implants may fail then they can offer you other tooth replacement options for example a bridge or a set of dentures. The next advantage of dental implants is that they are permanent, which is why they are preferred over other tooth replacement options. Once fixed in the mouth, dental implants are designed to last for the whole of your life. You may need to replace the crown or dentures, but the implant should last forever.
Dental implants look and feel like your natural teeth. They are fixed into your jaw and therefore provide excellent strength and stability to your mouth. They improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile helping to renew your confidence and self-esteem which can be lost as a result of a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. It will be as if you have undergone a smile makeover, however no one has to know that you have them unless you wish to tell them.
Dental implants help improve the health of your teeth. Your remaining teeth can become crooked or wonky when you have a missing tooth, because they are inclined to fill the empty space. This can weaken the teeth and it can affect the appearance of your smile further after it has already been affected by the missing tooth. Dental implants strengthen the jaw and they prevent bone decay and gum recession. They improve or even restore the function of your mouth. You will be able to speak correctly, pronounce all your letters correctly, as well as bite and chew as you did before you had missing teeth, helping you to enjoy all your favourite food and drink.
Looking after your dental implants
You have to look after your dental implants as you would your natural teeth. You need to brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss at least once, visit the dentist regularly, at least once every six months but more often if possible. You need to avoid smoking or excessive drinking otherwise this can cause your implant to fail. By visiting our dentist regularly and looking after your teeth your implant will last for the rest of your life. Speak to us at High Dental Implants Melbourne today to find out more.
