Dental Implants in Port Melbourne

Restore Your Smile With
Dental Implants

Do you suffer from missing teeth? If you are looking for a reliable dental treatment, dental implants can restore your missing teeth right down to the tooth root. Titanium or ceramic implants are surgically placed into the jawbone to form a strong bond and foundation to support the crown prosthesis that is placed onto the fixture to ensure long-standing durability.

Your crown prostheses are made of high-grade porcelain and zirconia (lava, German). All prostheses used at PMD Dental Care are fabricated locally at Seaside Dental Studio, including complex angled implants fabricated at Osteon Medical and Atlantis (Sweden).

Our dental professionals at Port Melbourne Dental are highly qualified and experienced, allowing your smile restoration to be carried out seamlessly from beginning to end. Simply call our dental clinic for more details on this treatment, and we’ll be happy to help!

Am I Eligible For Dental Implants?

For dental implants to be successful, each candidate must:

  • - Have adequate bone quality and volume
  • - Meet general medical requirements
  • - Practise good oral hygiene
  • - Quit or reduce smoking
  • - Address gum disease or other oral issues

The best way to find out if you’re a candidate and if dental implant treatment is the right option for you is to consult with one of our qualified implant dentists. We will assess your oral health using dental imaging (x-rays) and in-chair examinations, after which personalised treatment plans will be made according to your unique case needs.

Why Do I Need to Restore Missing Teeth?

The benefits of restoring missing teeth extend beyond just aesthetic reasons, as there are many health risks involved in not restoring your smile. Missing teeth can lead to pressure across your bite. Over time, the adjacent teeth will lean into the missing gaps, causing a crooked smile that severely affects your dental health.

Missing teeth can cause your facial muscles to sag and your jawbone, which usually requires constant stimulation to deteriorate. A weak jawbone may not be able to support any natural teeth or dental restorations you may need in the future. By utilising dental implants that closely mimic your natural teeth, your jawbone will remain healthy and stimulated.

Benefits Of Getting Dental Implants

Dental implants can be a life-changing decision that offers various benefits, including other than just replacing missing teeth. Here’s a look at some of the advantages of choosing implants:

  • Stimulates your jawbone, preventing bone loss that can occur when teeth are missing.
  • Functions like natural teeth, allowing you to eat your favourite meals without restrictions.
  • With consistent care and maintenance, dental implants can potentially last a lifetime.
  • Dental implants don’t slip or move like dentures, ensuring clear speech.
  • Easy maintenance, it’s just like taking care of your natural teeth.
  • Dental implants can improve your overall quality of life and boost your self-esteem.
  • Eliminates the need for messy adhesive or removal at night.
  • Improves oral health and overall well-being.
  • Prevents adjacent teeth from shifting and tilting, maintaining the alignment of your teeth.
  • Provides a natural-looking smile once your prosthetic tooth is attached to the abutment (the piece that connects the implant and your new tooth).

Dental Implants Process

At Port Melbourne Dental, the process of getting your new smile with implants is as simple and stress-free as possible. Here's a general overview of how it goes:

  • During the initial consultation, our dentist will assess your oral health and eligibility for dental implants. We will use dental imaging to check if you have sufficient bone density for this treatment and create a personalised treatment plan for you.

  • We will take impressions of your smile to create a custom-made crown that matches the shape, size, and colour of your natural teeth to ensure a seamless and natural appearance.

  • In a surgical procedure, the dental implant, which serves as the foundation for the replacement tooth is inserted into the jawbone to replace the missing gap. We utilise sleep dentistry services during this step to ensure your comfort and make it a pain free process!

  • Over the next few months, the implant will integrate with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration. This fusion ensures the implant becomes a stable and permanent part of your jaw.

  • Once osseointegration is complete, a small connector called an abutment is attached to the implant. The abutment protrudes from the gum line and serves as a secure attachment point for the artificial tooth (crown).

  • The final step involves attaching your new custom-made crown to the abutment and your new smile is complete!

What Are the Types of Dental Implants

If you have multiple missing teeth, single dental implants are usually used with a dental crown and your dental implants can be combined with other teeth replacement methods to ensure a more affordable and efficient solution.

For example, we offer All-On-4 Implants, a solution that places 4 dental implants at strategic angles in your jaw to utilise the existing jawbone as much as possible. The lesser number of implants used makes this a more affordable option. We also combine implants with dentures (overdentures/implant-supported dentures) if you need a full set of prosthetic teeth. The stability that implants offer make it much more comfortable and secure to wear, unlike traditional dentures. Book a consultation to find out which option is the best for you!

Zirconia Ceramic
Metal-Free Dental Implants

Another great option for cosmetic implant dentistry is zirconia ceramic implants, a metal-free solution. Renowned for their aesthetic appeal, our metal-free implants are white and have the translucency of natural teeth, so the grey hue commonly associated with titanium types at the gum line is no longer a concern. They are also ultra-bio-compatible, fostering the surrounding gum wraps around the implant just like it does for a real tooth, offering better gum health.

We offer unique aesthetic solutions to all our patients to cater to their different needs.

While some patients have a thin gingival biotype, which requires this specific treatment approach, other patients express their explicit wish for a metal-free alternative. At PMD Dental, we use the Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant to provide the best tooth replacement solution for you. It is curated based on decades of experience and allows us to help patients who experience sensitivity and allergies or those who simply desire a more natural treatment method.

Looking to restore your smile with a long-term, durable solution? We offer quality dental implants, including Zirconia ceramic implants, at Port Melbourne Dental. They act just like your natural teeth making it easy to smile, talk and eat effortlessly!
