What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant procedure replaces missing teeth. A screw-like post made of titanium is surgically inserted into your jaw to replace the damaged tooth root and acts as an anchor for a prosthesis such as a dental crown or dental bridge.
Natural bone is allowed to grow around the implant to make it more stable. Once the healing process is completed, the dental crown is attached.
Dental implants are an excellent alternative to traditional dentures and dental bridges.
Are You A Good Candidate for Dental Implants?
- You’re missing one or more teeth
- You’re not fond of or are unable to wear dentures
- You have a fully developed, healthy jawbone
- You have healthy oral tissues
- You don’t have gum disease
- You don’t have conditions that could impair bone healing
- You’re a nonsmoker or willing to quit smoking
- You’re eager to commit to the process for a few months
Are You Looking For High-Quality Dental Implants In Melbourne?
Dr Jenny Liu is highly-experienced in providing dental and oral care services, including dental implants. If you need a longer-lasting and more reliable alternative to traditional dentures, we can help you. Whatever type of dental implant you need, we can do it for you here at Happy Dentistry!
However, your jawbone must have the right depth and width for this procedure to succeed. The implant is typically shaped like a cylinder or screw, and your dentist will surgically insert it into your jaw.
Are Dental Implants Safe?
Our dentists have used these modern teeth replacement devices on our patients for years. As technology continues to improve, quality dental implants have become a reliable way to get your teeth to look natural.
Are Dental Implants Painful?
Discomfort varies per person, but we’ll do our best to reduce it. During the dental implant procedure, an anaesthetic application can help make the treatment more comfortable. Our dentists can prescribe medication, such as Valium, to ease anxiety or perform sleep dentistry procedures using happy gas as an option.
