What is a dental implant?
A dental implant, also known as a tooth implant, is a minor procedure which involves replacing a missing tooth or teeth by fixing a screw and crown into the jawbone. A dental implant is made up of two components, a metal foundation, usually titanium, and a porcelain crown over the top that matches your existing teeth perfectly, to hide it comfortably and discreetly in your mouth. You will forget that it’s even there. Dental implants are a permanent solution to a very common problem.
Am I eligible for a dental implant?
Anyone with one or more missing teeth can be eligible for a dental implant. A dental implant can help anyone who is self-conscious about the gaps in their smile, or if you’re having problems with the function of your teeth – if it’s painful or uncomfortable to eat and chew.
At Innovative Dental, we use the latest technology for dental implants in Ascot Vale, and we will discuss with you the best options for your needs. We understand that every person is different, and every tooth is different, so our dental implants will be tailor made to your needs and specifications.
A dental implant usually requires a few minor procedures. The area will be numbed with local anaesthesia prior to the procedure, then the screw will be inserted into your jawbone with ease and almost no discomfort. A crown will be placed on top for maximum comfort, and then the procedure is complete.
No special care is needed for your dental implant once it has been implanted. A good hygiene practice and regular dental check-ups at Innovate Dental Ascot Vale will suffice in making sure your dental implant will last a lifetime.
