Dental Implant Dentist at Dental Art Melbourne
Are you missing one or more teeth? Having trouble with dentures or partials? Are you unhappy with your bridge? If so, Dental Implants may be the answer you are looking for.
Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements used to counter tooth loss. The procedure is categorized as a form of prosthetic (artificial replacement) dentistry, though it also falls into the category of cosmetic dentistry.
Although you have a number of restorative options for the treatment of missing teeth, none have proven to be as functionally effective and durable as implants. In many cases, dental implants may be the only logical choice for the restoration of all necessary functionality of the teeth and supporting structures.
Teeth are lost because of:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Root canal failure
- Gum disease
- Trauma to the mouth
- Excessive wear and tear
- Congenital defects
People who have lost teeth might feel too self-conscious to smile or talk. Additionally, biting irregularities caused by tooth loss can have a negative effect on eating habits and this can lead to secondary health problems like malnutrition. Regardless of the nature of problems related to tooth loss, dental implants may provide a simple remedy with proven results.
Dental Implants Before and AfterAdvantages of Implant Dentistry
Dental implants are stronger and more durable than their restorative counterparts (bridges and dentures).
Implants offer a permanent solution to tooth loss.
Implants may be used in conjunction with other restorative procedures for maximum effectiveness.
Implants can be used to support a dental bridge for the replacement of multiple missing teeth, and can be used with dentures to increase stability and reduce gum tissue irritation.
