Why dental implants in Melbourne?
Dental implants are an increasingly popular option for those looking to fill the gap in their smile, as they provide long-lasting benefits over alternative treatment. Here at High Dental Implants Melbourne, we offer implants to suit your individual needs, whether that’s for multiple missing teeth, a single implant, or all your missing teeth.
One of the benefits of dental implants over alternatives such as false teeth or bridges is that they provide a new stable tooth that is made to last for a long time. Dental implants can last upwards of 25 years, so long as you maintain good oral hygiene.
Respecting your remaining teeth
Another benefit of going for dental implants in Melbourne is that the tooth supports itself. The implant is drilled into the jawbone and acts as the root of the tooth, meaning that the new tooth doesn’t compromise the health of the other teeth. Alternative treatment such as bridges require grinding down adjacent healthy teeth to act as buttresses, or hooking a partial denture onto the other teeth.
Easier day-to-day tasks
Dental implants make day-to-day tasks easy; one of which, you’ll be glad to hear, is eating. With a healthy full set of teeth, you can eat whatever you like, and what’s more, you will be able to chew properly, which makes it easier to digest.
Dental implants will also allow you to brush and floss your teeth more easily, without having to fuss around a gap or worry about food getting lodged.
A beautiful smile
Over time, surrounding teeth may begin to drift into the gap caused by the missing teeth; this affects how the teeth function as a set. Replacing your tooth will improve how the rest of your teeth function, as well as give you back your beautiful toothy grin.
How do I know if I’m suitable for dental implants in Melbourne?
During your consultation, the implant dentist will take an x-ray to check if there is enough bone in the jaw to mesh around the implant. Most people are suitable, so long as they are in good oral health.
They will also go through the details of the procedure with you and explain all the aftercare and risks.
