Read on to find the answers to our top five most commonly asked FAQs about dental implants in Melbourne. We are certain you will learn at least one thing you didn’t know!
‘Can I have implants if I smoke?’
In a word, yes.
But, does smoking have a negative impact on the dental implants in Melbourne that we can offer you? Also, yes.
Adverse effects of smoking are likely to cause your oral implants to not only fail, but to fail sooner.
‘Does having implants fitted hurt?’
A common question that we get at High Dental which is a concern to the majority of our implant patients.
While pain is subjective, many who have had oral implants fitted have compared the discomfort, after the anaesthetic begins to fade, to that of dental extraction. So, to summarise, yes, it is likely to cause some discomfort, but not as much as you might think. If you are concerned about any increasing level of discomfort after fitting, you need to see us immediately.
‘I lost my teeth a while ago- can I still have implants fitted?’
While this depends on the quality of your jawbone, it is possible to have an implant fitted if you lost your teeth a number of years ago. Our team will be able to provide you with a more accurate answer on consultation and examination.
‘Aren’t implants really expensive?’
At High Dental, we are able to offer all of our cosmetic clients finance options.
This is subject to checks, but will help to spread the cost of treatment into monthly, manageable chunks.
‘If I have implants fitted, do I still have to go to the dentist for check-ups?’
Yes, you do!
Implants require the same level of care that you would provide to your natural teeth, and require regular dental check-ups to ensure that they are still in place and that there are no secondary concerns in your mouth; good oral hygiene is important in prolonging the life of oral implants.
