Dental Implants at Melbourne
Benefits of Dental Implants
Because dental implants are secured into your mouth, they look and feel more like your real teeth. But there are more benefits than aesthetics.
Am I a Candidate for a Dental Implant?
Our caring team of professionals strive to give you the satisfaction you deserve. That’s why our first goal is to save your teeth, if possible, and work with you on financing. So, if you have a tooth that is very damaged or diseased, it may need to be removed, and if this is the case, then a dental implant may be an option for you. Your dentist will do a full examination and evaluation to determine how we can best serve you, and then discuss all options with you. We understand that everyone wants to look and feel their best, but there are some cases where a dental implant might not be right:
3D Technology for the Best Care
We utilise the latest in technology to ensure we provide you with the best, up-to-date procedures available. We begin with 3D x-rays that show us a 3D version of your teeth, which comes with many benefits including:
Less radiation exposure due to better equipment
Increased diagnostic accuracy for a personalised diagnosis and comfort
Best imagery with multiple views, allowing us to identify any problems before they get worse
Our Happy Patient
After hearing numerous excellent reports about this clinic, I decided to visit myself. I must say that it was a fantastic experience, even better than I expected! The clinic is bright and modern, the receptionists and nurses are friendly and help to put you at ease. The dentist is gentle, knowledgeable and explains everything so thoroughly!
I highly recommend this clinic!
Knowing what to expect when you get dental implants can help lessen the stress of your procedure. The following is what you can expect when you decide that dental implants might be right for you.
When you first come in, your dentist will do an initial consultation and evaluation. She/he will let you know if you are a candidate for dental implants, and then go over your options.
Your professional will take a 3D x-ray to capture a complete view of your teeth and jawbone.
Your tooth or teeth will be prepared, if necessary. We will clean bacteria or do a full tooth cleaning if it is required.
Your decayed or damaged tooth will be extracted, and we can graft the socket.
The implant will be placed, usually the next day, unless the computer-guided surgery is being utilised. If that is the case, we may ask you to come back for the implant while we perfect the procedure.
Once the implant is placed, a final impression will be taken, and a crown will be secured in place.
The entire process may take a few days up to two weeks, depending on the individual’s oral condition.
How Long Will My Dental Implants Last?
Dental implants become a part of your mouth and the crowns are very much like your teeth. Just like your natural teeth, they are prone to a buildup of bacteria. In addition, your entire mouth is still subject to disease and other problems, so taking care of all your teeth is important.
Proper brushing, flossing and rinsing can help ward off disease and receding gums. Regular dental checkups can help catch problems before they arise. And watching your diet by limiting sugar, bottled juices and soft drinks can help your gums remain healthy. All of these factors contribute to the overall health of your teeth, gums and bone and each is important for your dental implant to last as long as possible. And with proper hygiene and the right care, a dental implant can last up to 25 years!
