Same day teeth at High Dental Implant Melbourne
You may have heard a buzzword flying around lately that applies to denture wearers who are suffering from ill-fitting teeth. These poorly fitted dentures can be uncomfortable and cause pain. It can occur gradually over time and the wearer might not even notice the change until they suddenly find that they do not feel confident laughing openly or have begun choosing certain foods solely for the convenience of their teeth.
“Same day teeth” is a procedure provided by High Dental Implants Melbourne which does just as the name implies; it gives you new teeth all on the same day.
This can be achieved thanks to a clever method that allows a whole set of dentures to be supported by the need for only four dental implants; two on top and two on the bottom. Dental implants are increasing constantly in popularity as they are proving to be a reliable and comfortable method of replacing teeth. They also have the added benefit of strengthening the jaw bone, something that dentures unfortunately cannot do.
Over time, the jaw bone recedes without the stimulation provided by natural teeth. This is the major reason as to why dentures begin to no longer fit over time. It can also cause a sunken appearance in the face giving a ‘hollow cheeks’ effect and prematurely aging the face.
Should your jaw bone have receded significantly, there may be too little bone to provide enough support for a tooth implant to be inserted. Thankfully, there are bone grafting options that use either real or synthetic bone to provide additional bone and support so that the treatment can continue as planned. It is a relatively routine procedure that we are happy to discuss with you, alleviating concerns and answering any questions you may have about it.
What exactly are these tooth implants?
A dental implant is essentially a replacement tooth root. It is a metal rod that is screwed into the site where an original tooth root once was. It fuses with the jaw bone making for a stable and secure site for a crown, bridge or dentures to be placed permanently onto.
These false teeth are very realistic and look and function just like real teeth. They are permanent, so you do not have to worry about your dentures slipping or falling out whilst you are speaking, eating or laughing ever again. There is the option to have your dentures removable should you like. Personal preferences are always welcomed at High Dental Implants Melbourne.
How is the procedure carried out?
By using CT scanners to accurately plot the location for the four tooth implants, we have the ability to place the location in the ideal spot for quick recovery and comfort. A temporary bridge will be given to you to wear on the day of surgery that looks and functions just like your permanent teeth that will be provided to you six months later.
We want to ensure healing and recovery is not affected whilst giving you the confidence in your smile on the same day of treatment.
All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
