Looking for a prosthesis to replace your denture?
Your dentures may have served you well and provided many years of not being self-conscious about your smile. However, your dentures now may have started to behave unpredictably by falling out of place at the worst possible moments or started to rub.
Dentures might have been right for you in the past, but they may no-longer fit over your teeth like they used to.
Your jaw must be stimulated to function normally. Consequently, and as a result of your missing teeth and not replacing them, your jaw weakens from lack of use. As a result, you may experience bone loss and a change to the structure of your face.
Dentures do not replace teeth at the root, which means that the bone underneath is not pressed onto when you chew, eat and talk. After a couple of years wearing them, the jaw can shrink resulting in your dentures no longer fitting correctly.
High Dental Implants Melbourne addresses the cause of this problem by replacing the tooth at the root when performing implants.
If you have long suffered the consequences of dentures that no longer work properly or have recently experienced tooth loss, come to our practice, High Dental Implants Melbourne. Let us help you find the best solution for your mouth.
How do implants at High Dental Implants Melbourne differ to alternative restoration techniques?
If you are in the market for a dental prosthesis, you should explore all your options, and know the pros and cons of each available device or solution.
Dentures and bridges have had widespread use for decades. People have relied on them for years. That said, they are not without their shortcomings that can restrict patients’ lives.
Dentures, especially unstable ones, can impede a person's speech and can feel clunky, unnatural and uncomfortable. At the same time, their tendency to slip out of place is embarrassing and can negatively impact on a person's self-esteem and confidence.
Bridges are a permanent fixture, so the chances of it dislodging out of place are low. However, to securely fit a bridge in place, neighbouring teeth might need to be filed down, which can compromise their integrity and could weaken them in the long run.
High Dental Implants Melbourne offers a hybrid of both treatments: implants. Implants are permanently embedded in your jaw. At the same time, your surrounding teeth are typically preserved because the parts that are used (a small titanium screw is inserted in the bone where the tooth was) only take up a small space.
What are some benefits of dental implants?
A tooth implant is a long-lasting solution for replacing missing pearly whites.
Your new implant feels comfortable, looks like a real tooth and also functions like one.
Enjoy the food you have avoided in the past, knowing that your implant is not in danger of cracking or breaking.
An implant is easy to maintain; stick to a routine clean of brushing twice a day for two to three minutes, making sure to pay special attention to your implants. It is essential to clean all surfaces of the teeth because while plaque will not erode your artificial crown, it can have damaging effects on your surrounding gum.
High Dental Implants Melbourne offers multiple, modern options for our patients requiring restorative dentistry.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
