Why Replace Deteriorated or Missing Teeth?
Having missing teeth or the loss of a single tooth often triggers adverse changes in your oral cavity that affects not only your bite and function, but may ultimately affect the health of your remaining teeth.
Tooth replacement is important for your dental health because it provides the required support for your bite and adjacent teeth, thus preventing them from shifting, tilting or drifting into the unoccupied space, making them difficult to clean, and susceptible to gum disease and decay. Such gaps in your mouth may start a vicious cycle that leading to further missing teeth.
An incomplete dentition increases the functional stresses on the remaining teeth leading to excessive wear. Furthermore, the jawbone tends to atrophy or, ‘shrink’, thus potentially limiting future treatment options and affecting your ability to chew comfortably and look good.
Why Dental Implants?
In our Melbourne clinic we offer various options to replace missing teeth, including dentures or fixed bridges that are supported by natural teeth on either side of the gap. But the most stable and reliable method today is with dental implants, Melbourne’s best solution to deteriorated or missing teeth.
A dental implant is a fixture made of medical grade titanium, which is inserted into the jaw bone to serve as an anchor for the replacement of a tooth, or a segment of teeth. When a segment of consecutive teeth is missing, it is not essential to place a fixture in each of the individual positions. Instead 2 fixtures, for example, can be used as supports to replace the entire segment with an implant bridge. When a full set of teeth needs replacing, this can even be achieved on as little as 4 fixtures and in as little as 1-3 days with our All On 4 Plus treatment.
Dental implants are recognised as routine treatment for a range of oral conditions from replacing a single tooth to full oral rehabilitation, or in certain cases in may even be to simply provide some additional retention for a denture. Depending on the exact nature of treatment, implants may offer the following benefits:
- Improved Appearance
- Improved comfort and speech
- Improved confidence due to their fixed and permanent nature
- Being able to eat and taste your foods and drinks
- Preserve adjacent teeth when appropriate
- Help reduce atrophy and preserve jawbone
Implants have been around for many years and are perhaps the most researched topic in dentistry. The first patient to receive implant fixtures was in 1965. Since that time, there have been many refinements in the techniques and technology of the titanium fixtures.
But technology will only ever offer us tools, not solutions. The safe, aesthetic, and functional solutions that we are able to offer our patients are a reflection of our expertise though focus and experience. We know that implants work, or osseo-integrate, but in our clinic we strive not only for osseointegration, but also for an overall successful result.
Our dedicated Implantologists and Cosmetic Dentists in Melbourne can tailor individual solutions for your teeth/tooth replacement needs and offer the option of All-on-4 if required.
