Dental implants are a very safe and proven way to replace missing teeth. Unlike dental bridges, they are not attached to any of your existing teeth, replicating quite closely to what your original tooth felt like. Our dentists have done further professional training in Dental Implants in Australia, and are accredited to place dental implants.
The process of getting dental implants are very straightforward. After a consultation with our dentists, we will arrange for a 3D CBCT x-ray to be taken in our clinic. From there, we will discuss and plan what type of implant to place under your gum for you.
Once the implant is placed, we will usually wait a bit to allow for your body to heal around it, making it part of you. This process usually takes 1-2 months. In the meantime, the dentist will arrange for a temporary false tooth to replace the missing tooth if necessary, especially if you are replacing any front tooth!
Once the implant is healed and ready, then it is a painless 2-visit process to have your brand new porcelain tooth (or gold if you prefer) attached to the implant.
And that's it!
Please give us a call or come in to chat with one of our dentists here at Dental Studio Mooroolbark to talk about your tooth replacement option when you are ready!
