Dental Implants in Templestowe Lower

An Effective Solution to Replace Teeth

person in dental chairIn the past dentures were the only viable way of replacing missing teeth. Though dentures have come a long way in recent years, they can still be uncomfortable and cumbersome. Fortunately, dental implants represent an excellent, natural-looking way to improve your smile.

What Is an Implant?

This artificial tooth root is composed of durable, surgical-grade titanium. It’s positioned in the jaw. A crown or bridge can be placed atop the implant. If you’ve lost teeth due to injury or gum disease, dental implants should be considered a top choice for tooth replacement. They can

  • Replace one or more teeth without adjacent teeth being affected
  • Provide support or stabilisation of top or bottom dentures
  • Reinforce bridges or replace a partial denture

An Excellent Alternative to Dentures

One of the biggest inconveniences with dentures is that they can move around in the mouth while eating. You won’t have that concern with implants. Not only will you be able to eat what you want with confidence, but you’ll also be able to smile with assurance as your implants look like natural teeth. And like natural teeth, implants can last an entire lifetime as long as they are taken care of.

Are Dental Implants Right for Me?

People of all ages can benefit from dental implants. It’s just essential that you be in generally good health and possess excellent oral health. Having enough jaw bone to permit proper placement of the implant and retain it is also critical. If you are considering having dental implants but may have a gum infection, please make an appointment with one of our dentists.

Sometimes other related procedures are necessary before implants can be placed. These include ridge (graft) augmentation and sinus (graft) augmentation. Our Templestowe Lower dental implant expert Dr Leo Tse (Dentist) can discuss these procedures with you if they are needed.

Caring for Implants

Just as you take care of your teeth to maintain optimal oral health, it’s essential that you take care of your implants as well. As they function like natural teeth do, you will want to schedule regular preventative checkups as well as practice good oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing.
