Are Dental Implants Right for You?

Dentist checking Xray for dental implant

Are you looking to finally give up that partial denture or filling in the space left after having a tooth pulled? Our Mooroolbark dental implants might just be the right option.

Here are a few things to take into consideration before setting your heart on these permanent tooth replacements:

 

You’ll Need to Have Healthy Bone Levels

 Every implant candidate will need to have adequate bone support in their jaw to support the dental implant. In some cases, dentists can place a bone graft to make the jaw stronger in that location. Extended periods of time with missing teeth can lead to additional bone resorption (shrinkage) making this treatment more challenging.

 

Implants Should be Cared for Like Natural Teeth

 Yes, implants replace your teeth, but they’re not like a denture that you take out each night. Your implants are now a part of your permanent smile. As such, you’ll want to care for them as if they were real teeth. That means routine brushing and flossing, along with regularly scheduled checkups at the dentist office.

 

You Can Replace One or All of Your Teeth at Once

The flexibility of implants provides options for single tooth replacement as well as full-arch prosthesis support. So, whether you want an individual implant and crown, or a complete implant supported overdenture, you have a number of choices to consider.

 

Finding a Provider You Can Trust

Before settling on implant treatment, you need a dental team who can provide comprehensive services from start to finish, along with a track record you can feel confident in.
