What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are posts made of titanium, surgically positioned into the bone to support a crown or a bridge. Dental implants look close to natural teeth and over time, integrate to your natural jawbone. An artificial tooth or crown is attached to the implant to fill the gap left by the missing tooth.

Dental implants Melbourne are a natural looking option as the crown is made to blend in with your other teeth in colour and size.

What are the advantages of a dental implant?

  • Thanks to dental implants in Melbourne, you can smile again! Dental implants look like your other teeth, so you can stop feeling self-conscious because no one will know that you have artificial teeth.
  • You can start eating hard food again as dental implants can withstand greater biting pressure than traditional dentures.
  • Dental implants help prevent jawbone loss, and a ‘sunken’ facial expression. 
  • Dental implants are very long-lasting and do not decay
  • Dental implants Melbourne are much more comfortable than dentures
  • Once dental implants are in they are fixed and do not need to be taken in and out.

Digital Dental Implants

As advancements are made in dental technology, dental implants Melbourne become more and more sophisticated. Dental implants in Melbourne are able to be inserted into place with unprecedented precision thanks to digital dental implants.

Digital dental implants (also called digital navigation implant surgery) uses state-of-the-art 3D technology. A computer creates a model of your jawbone to provide highly accurate implant design and placement. This decreases the time you have to spend in surgery, reduces the risk of infection, and gives you a speedier recovery!

Benefits of Digital Dental Implants

  • More accurate surgical procedure
  • Guided keyhole surgery is used, with only a small cut to access the area, it is much less invasive
  • There is hardly any post-operative pain or discomfort.
  • The recovery period is much shorter

The Dental Implants Process

First appointment

The dentist will ascertain your suitability and discuss the procedure at length and answer any questions you have. You will then be provided with a treatment plan including a quote and an information booklet. X-rays and scans will also need to be taken to know the placement of the implant.

Second appointment

You will have minor surgery where the dental implant(s) will be put into your jawbone. Patients will then have a healing period of 8-12 weeks while the bone grows around the implant.

Third appointment

Impressions of the healed implant are then taken and the shade for the new crown or bridge will be ascertained to that of your natural surrounding teeth.

Final Stage

Your new tooth or teeth are inserted and screwed into the foundation.
