Dental implants are used to replace teeth you may have lost through an accident, dental degradation or old age. At Dental Boutique’s Melbourne clinic, we use the latest technological advances to come up with solutions to give you natural-looking and long lasting implants which will give you the confidence to smile once again.

The Benefits of Dental Implants
1 MORE STABILITY
With posts going down to the bone of your jaw, dental implants provide you with a stability and durability that is reliable. You no longer have to worry about your new teeth coming off when you bite on hard food.
Because implants are so durable and long-lasting, you actually save in the long term! No need to replace anything as long as you take good care of them thus no upkeep costs. Long term will always win you the cost battle.
Dental implants have a natural look that blends in well with the rest of your teeth. Early on in the planning stage, we will find the colour that matches best with your existing teeth so people will never even notice that you have implants. Furthermore, dental implants will ensure your ability to communicate and exert yourself with confidence.
Finding the Best Solution for You
Every patient is a special case. We want to make sure you feel like you’re in control and well aware of the treatment options you have. Here are some of the treatments in our Melbourne dental implant clinic available for patients with missing teeth – and the distinctions between each of them.
Bringing Your Smile to the Next Step with Computer-guided Technology
In computer-guided implant surgeries, a 3D cone-beam scan is used to perform a virtual surgery in which a 3D scan is overlaid on a patient’s mouth and the surgeon performs a virtual and simulated procedure before proceeding with the actual one. A computer-generated surgical guide is created from the information gathered from the simulation to assist in the precise placement of the implants. This allows the surgeon to do a trial run and master whatever steps are necessary to make the surgery a success.
Computer-guided implant surgery is helpful in cases where margin of error is small and where a free-hand procedure might possibly lead to a negative outcome. It’s also helpful in cases where there is little to no landmarks to help guide the orientation of the teeth.

Frequently Asked Questions
When you say your new method involves “no peeling of gums”, what is the peeling of gums?
Some dentists might peel or cut off a portion of a patient’s gums to expose the part of the jaw bone where the dental implants will be installed. This is to ensure that implants are placed in an area with an adequate amount of bone.
Our methods, however, no longer require us to do this. The peeling of gums can cause additional discomfort and problems for patients, which we would like to avoid so the peeling of the gums is something we don’t do anymore.
Since it’s now keyhole surgery replacing the traditional methods of installing implants, which is a fair bit shorter time taken, is this reflected in the cost?
If finances are an issue for you, not to worry. We help our patients find ways to get their dream smile even if cost is a challenge. There are financing options, payment plans or insurance claims you can use to help you financially for your procedure.
Can dental implants help with overall gum health?
How long are dental implants guaranteed for?
Do dental implants go through a period where they’re wobbly at first but then gradually settle in and become more stable?
If a person has lost all or most of their teeth, are you still able to insert implants?
It’s possible to create dental implants for a person who has lost the majority or all of one’s teeth, but it wouldn’t be the optimal solution. For cases like this, we would recommend that patients look into the All-on-4 solution instead.
What are dental implants made of?
The crown – or the part which becomes the visible tooth – is made up of a ceramic material that is meant to match the texture, colour and feel of a natural tooth. The implant base, which acts like the root of a tooth, is made up of a strong metal, often Titanium, or a crystal-like material called Zirconia.
From the first consultation with you, is there a delay before people can book in for the procedure?
Is a condition like extremely sensitive teeth enough of a reason for people to want to replace their teeth with implants?
What kinds of positive psychological effects can dental implants have on a person? Eg improved self-esteem, greater confidence, improved love-life etc?
Can the dental implants deteriorate faster like teeth do if exposed to too much sugar, coffee or similar liquids?
Highly acidic and tinted drinks like wine, coffee and certain juices can cause your implants to stain just like it would normal teeth. We would recommend that you minimize the intake of these drinks.
Also, extremely hard and gamey food can also ruin your denture implants just as it would normal teeth if you eat too much of it. The key is moderation. With proper consideration of the food you eat, your dentures can last for a very very long time.
Is word-of-mouth one of the main ways people find you, since having a sudden mouthful of quality teeth must have a profound impact on the people who surround the patient socially also?
