Dental Implants replace missing teeth. They are artificial tooth roots inserted into the jawbone which is then attached to a crown. They look just like natural teeth and are a good solution to bridges or dentures which can be problematic. Implants have the great advantage of not compromising other natural teeth in the mouth. The missing area is treated, and no other teeth need to be involved for the process to be complete.
Implants help to prevent bone loss in the jaw, gum recession and hollow or collapsed cheeks that can occur after tooth extraction.
Your dentist will need to see you to assess your suitability for this treatment. Factors to be assessed include bone density and strength, the location of the implant, your general health and your commitment to oral hygiene.
We pride ourselves on our implant treatments and will work towards the best result for you. Our dentists in Geelong and Drysdale are committed to helping you acheive a good outcome.
