What are dental implants, and why may I decide to have Dental Implants in Melbourne?
Dental implants are essentially a form of restorative dentistry that aims to replace the natural tooth's root and crown. This type of dentistry is essentially a form of dentistry that aims to repair the state of the mouth, and attempts to maintain the rest of a patient’s natural teeth as much as possible. Neighbouring teeth very often rely on each other to stay healthy. Dental implants are made for people who have missing teeth from within the mouth, whether this be a single tooth loss, or several teeth. Individuals may lose teeth for a wide array of reasons, one of which may be due to an accident.
Are there health issues related to tooth loss?
Yes! Although it is extremely common for children to lose teeth frequently, If you are losing teeth as an adult, this may be the first sign of something wrong in terms of your oral health. Gum disease is just one example of a disease which may result in tooth loss. Cavities are another less common cause of tooth loss, cavities are caused by tooth decay, and the teeth can fall out if fillings are not applied to the teeth.
Why is it important to undergo Dental Implants in Melbourne?
Many individuals lose teeth and leave this condition untreated, this can be due to a wide array of reasons, one of which may be due to a dental phobia, or lack of financial funds. Losing a tooth (or worse, several teeth) can cause the development of further dental problems. Having a missing tooth within the mouth can cause infections due to the accumulation of bacteria, these oral infections can later spread to the rest of the body.
Can having Dental Implants in Melbourne resolve the discomfort of missing teeth?
