Dental implants 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. Once an implant is placed and healed, it should feel almost like a real tooth.
Implants consist of two parts :
-implant is a screw which binds to your jaw bone. This all happens below gum level and not visible in the mouth.
-implant crown is the porcelain tooth that attaches to the implant. This is what you can see in the mouth.
We recommend that our patients have implants placed with an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon (who are dentists as well as doctors and have LOTS of experience placing implants). The specialists are located in Geelong.
Once the implant is inserted, we can then help to construct a very aesthetic implant crown to blend in with your surrounding natural teeth at Corio Central Dental.
Implants are a very reliable treatment options, but one that is not suitable for everyone.
There are certain general medicals conditions, as well as local mouth conditions, which may not allow patients to seek implant treatment.
One of the most important steps in the journey to replacing a missing tooth is to have a comprehensive consultation with one of our dentists at Corio Central Dental, to see whether it may be a suitable choice for you.
