What are dental implants Geelong?
Dental implants Geelong are becoming a very popular option to replace missing teeth, and for good reason! Implants are the closest possible treatment option to a natural tooth. They consist of a metal screw (artificial root) which is placed in your jaw and a porcelain crown (artificial tooth). Once placed and healed they feel almost like a real tooth and you can eat pretty much anything you want on them.’
Do they work?
Yes! Dental implants Geelong are the most predictable and successful type of dental treatment available today, of all dental treatments! There is a lot of planning that goes into each case, and it may take 6 moths or even longer, sometimes from start to finish. Don’t worry most of that length of time is healing, which you do at home. There are surprisingly few appointments required, with long intervals in between.
Are they expensive?
Quoting for dental treatment without seeing you and your specific scenario is almost asking how long is a piece of string? We understand that cost is a very important aspect of treatment and will always give you a clear treatment plan with costs and item codes (in case you need to claim on dental insurance). A single tooth implant is around $5,000-$6,000.
Aren’t implants cheaper overseas?
Yes, some patients are able to find great bargains in other countries. HOWEVER, dentist overseas may use substandard materials and techniques which can result in implant failure. Removing a failed implant and placing a new one in Australia may actually costing MUCH more financially and emotionally, overall. We recommend Straumann as one of the best systems on the market.
