After the accident
You sit up, rub your face, notice you’ve got blood all over your hands. Your skateboard is ok but your mouth isn’t. You spit out blood and bits of tooth, lots of bits of tooth. Feeling around with your tongue, you realise you’ve totally smashed one of your front teeth on the step you just face planted.
Now, you have a choice. You can either spend the rest of your life with a big gap in the front of your smile, or you can get the tooth replaced with a dental implant in Melbourne.
It’s a no-brainer really. No one young wants to ruin their smile with a gap. So now it’s just a case of getting yourself along to High Dental Implants Melbourne.
When you lose a tooth, we recommend that you get a dental implant in Melbourne fitted as soon as you can. Here’s why:
As soon as you lose a tooth, the area of jawbone around the socket stops receiving impact signals from your teeth coming together. Those vibrations tell the bone that it is still needed. Without them, the bone starts to dissolve itself and soon you will notice a deeper and deeper arch between your teeth. Receding bone is not so easy to put a dental implant in Melbourne into without a bone graft first.
So, to avoid this, come along for a consultation with an implant dentist as soon as you can. Because you are young, it is unlikely you will have uncontrolled type 2 diabetes, or be a long-term smoker, both of which can stop the implant from fusing with your jawbone.
So, then it’s just a question of putting the tooth implant in. We do this under local anaesthetic, but you can also have sedation if you are very nervous.
Once the dental implant has fused with your jawbone, we can add the connecting piece and the crown.
The crown is made from dental porcelain and will have been sized, coloured and shaped to match your other teeth.
Now all you have to do is keep up a good oral hygiene routine, and your dental implant can last for at least 15 years, possibly decades.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
