The best Dental Implants to replace your lost teeth

Dental Implants at The Melbourne Smile Centre are implemented by our renowned oral surgeons who utilize the latest techniques and best implant materials available to restore your smile to its youthful, healthy appearance. We aim to give you the assurance you need that your smile is pleasing both functionally and cosmetically.

Having missing teeth can cause a number of inconveniences to the function of your mouth such as unwanted movement of teeth on either side of the space, discomfort with eating and obstructed speaking. It could also lead to unwanted wear of the teeth due to uneven distribution of load. Dental implants are used to replace missing teeth without damaging neighbouring teeth. Dental implants help the function of chewing, preventing wear of your natural teeth, and improve the aesthetics of your smile.

Tooth replacements using dental implants can be for single teeth, multiple teeth, implant retained overdenture, or a full set of teeth using the All-on-4™ technique. Implants help prevent further tooth and bone loss causing additional issues.

Single Dental Implants

A single dental implant may be used in situations where you may only be missing one tooth, maybe you lost one due to decay or due to an injury. Whatever the case a single dental implant may be used to maintain the health and integrity of the surrounding teeth.

 

Multiple Dental Implants

For more advanced tooth loss or teeth that may need to be extracted due to decay, the use of multiple implants is an option. It’s important to replace missing teeth as soon as possible. Missing teeth can lead to bone loss in the jaw, which can weaken your remaining teeth.

Dental implants are titanium root replacements that crowns and bridges can be attached to. Most dental implant placement is considered routine and predictable due to the advances in implant surface design and manufacturing. The Melbourne Smile Centre exclusively uses Nobel Biocare.
