Dental implants are a popular option for replacing missing teeth. Rather than implanting in the roots of your teeth, they are implanted carefully into the jaw bone using surgical grade titanium. With time the jaw becomes firmly aligned with the titanium implant so they are a permanent fixture.
Implants are a stable teeth replacement procedure because they fuse to the jawbone and therefore feel natural. Crowns, dentures and bridges can be easily attached to the sturdy implant bar so the implant looks like a natural tooth.
Dental Implants can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Implants can also be used to replace all the teeth in the upper or lower arch — top teeth or bottom teeth.
A patients can have multiple implants in different locations on one arch. In addition, implants can be used in conjunctions with other dental work. For example, a patients may opt for having dental implants as well crowns or bridges to replace other missing teeth.
The Dental Implants Procedure.
There are two stages to dental implants, surgical and restorative:
- Surgical: Our dentists perform surgery where the implants are inserted into the jawbone. The portion of the implants inserted into the bone are called ‘rods or anchors’. These anchors are made out of surgical titanium and are designed to last for life. It can take up to six months for the titanium rod implants to completely fuse to the bone. The replacement fittings, ie, crowns, bridges or dentures must not be attached until the implants have completely bonded with the bone structure.
- Restorative: Once the implants have fused and bonded with the jawbone, the restorative work of installing the replacement teeth begins. The replacement teeth would have been made to fit onto the implant posts attached to the implant anchors — rods. The artificial replacement teeth are often made from high-grade porcelain fused to precious metal or titanium.
In cases where several teeth with important function are replaced with implants, the patient can use temporary dentures for the time during which the implants fuse to the bone and until the permanent artificial teeth are fitted.
When is the right time to receive the replacement tooth or teeth..?
This can vary from one patient to another depending on the speed of the fusion process between the implanted anchors and the bone. Ultimately, the right time to attach the replacement teeth is determined by the dentist. The patient must attend to progress assessment appointments where x-rays are usually taken to examine the bonding progress and ensure that the implants are well integrated into the bone. Our experienced Dental Implants Melbourne team can perform these procedures at our Collins Street Dental Clinic or one of our other locations.
Candidates for dental implant treatments.
Patients considering dental implants must have adequate bone to support the implants. In addition, they must have healthy gums and over-all oral and dental health. Therefore, any dental issues that may affect the implant procedure must be dealt with and treated first. In some cases, specially where the patient does not have adequate bone, specialised procedures can be performed to surgically help in forming better bone structure and adequacy. All these issues are subject to an assessment by out dentists and maxillofacial surgeons.We are transparent about our Dental Implants Melbourne processes and the associated expenses, and will never proceed to treatment unless you are fully aware of all aspects.
