Dental Implants Procedure & Treatment
Dental implants are used to replace teeth you may have lost through an accident, dental degradation or old age. At Dental Boutique’s™ dental implant clinics, we use the latest technological advances to come up with solutions to give you natural-looking and long lasting teeth implants which will give you the confidence to smile once again.
Dental implants can be a life-long solution to missing teeth. They are comfortably embedded into your gums to give your new teeth strength and durability. Dental implants are expected to have a high success rate of 95% and within that 5 % we endeavour to resolve any complication or discomforts you’ve been experiencing.
Bringing Your Smile To The Next Step With Computer-Guided Technology
In computer-guided dental 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 dental 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.
Types Of Cosmetic Dental Implants
Single Dental Implants
A single cosmetic dental implant is applied when only one of the patient’s teeth are missing. Dental implants are applied in two parts. First, a titanium post is inserted into the gum to replace the missing root. This will provide the tooth with support and strength. A crown or denture is then placed on the post to replace the missing tooth.
Full Dental Implants (All On Implants™)
In the case of advanced decay or the majority of teeth missing, simple dental implants might not be able to do the trick. This is where the All on Implants™ concept comes into the picture.
The All on Implants™ is a permanent dental implant solution designed to be an alternative to full teeth dentures. Through All on Implants™, a full set of prosthetic teeth are hinged on to four dental posts that support the whole set.
Multiple Dental Implants
Multiple dental implants are applied the same way as single dental implants, but will require more work as multiple implants will be placed to replace a few missing teeth.
You may be a candidate for single or multiple implants if you are missing one or more teeth in between healthy natural teeth. Candidates must also have healthy gums, jaw bones and oral hygiene standards.
The Benefits Of Dental Implants
With posts going down to the bone of your jaw, dental implants provide you with 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 â and the distinctions between each of them.
Traditional Implant Bridge
All On Implantsâ¢ Dental Implants
|Benefits||Dentures provide a cost-effective, quick solution.||Overdentures provide a secure lower denture for more comfort and practicality than dentures.||Traditional implant bridges are a permanent, cost-effective solution that functions like a natural set of teeth.||All On Implantsâ¢ is the most permanent and efficient solution, providing a full set of teeth on only four implants that functions like a natural set of teeth would, allowing you to eat, brush and floss as normal.|
|Challenges||Dentures aren’t a fixed, permanent solution which can often cause discomfort and inconvenience. Dentures need to be removed for regular cleaning, and when sleeping.||While more secure than dentures, overdentures are still a removable solution which can cause inconvenience. The overdenture must be removed for cleaning, and when sleeping.||Applying an implant bridge takes around three months, which is longer than other available options.
