Teeth Replacement Options in Melbourne
Our dentists and staff here at Carlton Dental understand the importance of your smile and your overall dental health. Yet accidents happen, and a missing tooth may be the result, marring an otherwise beautiful smile. That is why we are on hand to provide caring and compassionate service including preventative dental care, even emergency dental care, when you have a missing tooth or a tooth that needs replacing. In these situations, dental implants are often the solution of choice.
Comprising of titanium posts with a porcelain tooth or teeth attached, they provide the look, feel and function of your own teeth, with greater strength and without the possibility of decay. With long-term success rates above 95 percent, it is easy to understand the popularity of dental implants. Moreover, at Carlton Dental, we strive to make your dental implant experience excellent in every way from start to finish.
Whether you need a single tooth, a partial bridge or a full bridge implant, we usually provide same-day service, ensuring that you need never suffer the embarrassment of a gap. We place the titanium posts in your jawbone with temporary teeth attached. Three months later, after the screws are firmly affixed to your bone, we replace the temporary teeth with permanent porcelain teeth. In fact, a bridge implant can be used to support a partial or full denture as well, improving the stability and retention of your denture.
Dental Implant Procedures You Can Trust
We also offer solutions if your teeth have been missing for a long time. In that case, you may not have enough bone remaining, which requires us to augment it with your own bone or with artificial bone. We usually do this at the same time as the implant, assuring you of a secure connection between your bone and your implant. Your bone then will grow through the bone graft, eventually replacing it. Additionally, we provide a means of replacing gums that have receded in the front of your mouth, using soft tissue obtained from your palate.
If you are considering implants, visit us at Carlton Dental for a comprehensive assessment and consultation with one of our experienced implant dentists. Assuring you of a beautiful smile is our pledge. Providing you with compassionate care of the highest quality is our commitment.
