Those who haven’t had dental implants before may find the concept and procedure confusing and foreign since implants aren’t what most people associate with everyday dentistry. However, since implants were introduced to dentistry in the early 1980s, they quickly became the standard for tooth replacement due to their versatility and predictability.
Dentists use titanium implants, one of the most biocompatible materials available, which means that even if you have a metal allergy you can still benefit from implants. A dental implant functions as the root of a tooth, meaning that it is placed entirely in the jaw bone, just like your natural root. A single implant can serve as a tooth, a component of a bridge that replaces multiple teeth, or a component that is used to improve a denture or partial denture.
Dental implants are the best option for replicating natural teeth. Contrary to bridges, partials, or dentures, implants often have a stronger biting force than natural teeth. But these implants are not just about aesthetics, they are vital for your overall oral health and facial structures.
If we don’t stimulate our bones, they atrophy and shrink away. In the absence of a tooth, the bone that used to support that tooth will resorb over time, which leads to defects, dents, and changes in facial shape that make the person appear older than they are.
Implants transmit forces from chewing into the bone when they are placed. The forces stimulate the bone to maintain density and volume to support the implant, much like the natural bone around natural teeth. Additionally, our teeth want partners: if a tooth is removed, the opposing tooth often grows out of the bone since it has no contact with its neighbour anymore. Teeth can also be tipped forward into areas where teeth are missing, altering and disrupting proper biting.
We have a team of highly qualified professionals who provide a dental implant service within an affordable range. We are renowned for offering care, warmth, and comfort along with quality dental care solutions. This is the reason why our patients’ satisfaction rate is increasing every day.
A thorough examination of your diseased tooth is done by our expert dentist at Care Family Dental.
This initial examination is provided completely free of charge. We take photographs and X-rays of your tooth and on the basis of that our expert dentist will determine a suitable treatment for your tooth.
Our experienced dentist will ask you to have a bone scan of your jawbone to ensure that your bone density supports the dental implant service.
We give local anaesthesia to a patient while placing the dental implant into their jawbone. Our expert dentist will give instructions for post-operative care for fast healing and pain relief. Healing time depends on your bone density and body metabolism.
We make impression moulds of your teeth and bite for your implants. Using these moulds, our professional dentist makes a custom fabricated crown, bridge, or abutment. When your dental implant gets healed and become osseointegrated, we attach an abutment to the implant after uncovering it.
This is the last step of our professional dental implant service that is available at our clinics in Port Melbourne, Melbourne, Armadale, Malvern, Toorak, Gisborne, Sunshine, and Templestowe. The expert and skilful dentists of Care Family Dental will attach the artificial tooth or crown to your implant.
