Dental Implants Melbourne – Cost Effective Implant Treatment
Our Process for Dental Implants
Digital implants are the next best thing to real teeth, and the latest advancements help the treatment go smoothly. Using computer-guided surgery, patients can be confident knowing they will receive the ideal implant and crown with the best fit possible.
When it comes to determining if you’re a candidate for dental implants – an initial dental exam and evaluation is the first step. After your exam, we will discuss all treatment options with you, and help you choose the best possible Dental implants Melbourne has to offer.
If you choose dental implants, the following will be used to evaluate your bone volume and density of the implant site to ensure you are a candidate for dental implants. Once it is determined you are, we will identify the ideal location for your implant. The latest technology helps us with the evaluation:
Schedule A Visit
Once the initial evaluation is complete and we determine there are no underlying contraindications or problems, we can begin. At this point, we will schedule a visit to put in your implant(s).
Design your new crown to match the shape and colour of your other teeth.
Once the implant is complete, we will then apply the crown.
Some patients will have both the implant and crown applied in the same day, while others may need two visits to allow time for the jaw and gum to heal before the crown is applied
As with any dental procedure, let us know if you experience dental anxiety so we can help address it. We want your dental experience to be a positive one and will help make that happen.

Benefits of Dental Implants
Replacing missing teeth? There are many benefits to choosing dental implants, if that’s the case. From (undoubtedly) an improvement in self-esteem, to ease of care, dental implants are a superior solution – that will also last. Many patients love them because they are easier to care for than dentures and they spare the teeth around them, unlike a traditional dental bridge. Here are some of the other (many!) reasons why we deliver the Dental implants Melbourne locals trust.
Why Use Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a dental tool that have helped millions of people to fix their teeth – and improve their smiles! Where some options that replace missing teeth (we’re looking at you, traditional dentures) can irritate and damage the gums; implants do not. Furthermore, traditional dentures and bridges do not stop jawbone deterioration, which can change your appearance and cause aging – making you look older than you are. In contrast, dental implants actually stimulate bone growth, which helps maintain oral health and confidence. Here are some scenarios where implants will do the job:

Dental implants are a type of restorative dentistry. When a tooth is missing, other teeth might fill in the space, causing them to be misplaced. Missing teeth can also cause gum damage as it is due to exposure during eating and drinking. Luckily, a dental implant will replace the tooth, and is considered a more natural and permanent option than a traditional bridge or dentures.
With a dental implant, a tiny, titanium alloy pole is placed into the jawbone that will serve as a holder for the replacement tooth, called a dental crown. The dental crown is then fixed onto the implant. Over time, the implant will stimulate bone growth, so your jawbone doesn’t deteriorate, which is a common problem when teeth go missing.
The implant is inserted into your jawbone, so it may feel loose or wobbly at first. This is natural as it will take time for the bone to heal and develop. Over a few days the bone heals and grows around the implant, strengthening and stabilising it. This is why implants are a preferred treatment, as it stimulates bone growth which is healthier for you and your teeth.
Technology has quickly advanced, and the implants that are designed today may last a lifetime. Just like other teeth, they are subject to the effects of a poor diet, smoking or neglect, so regular oral hygiene and dental checkups are an important part of care.
When your new implants are complete, your dentist or hygienist will provide instructions on proper brushing and flossing, as well as recommend a toothpaste and mouthwash. We also advise our patients to avoid staining foods and beverages and avoid hard foods that can break the crown or a natural tooth. These include hard lollies, seeds and ice cubes. Also be careful when eating popcorn so that you don’t accidentally bite on a hard, unpopped kernel.
Proper oral hygiene will help your dental implants last. The following are the basic steps that we recommend:
- Brush twice each day
- Floss daily
- Use interdental brushes such as Piksters or Superfloss to clean around the crown and implant area
- Use a Waterpik irrigation system, if possible
- Maintain regular dental checkups every 6 months to catch problems early and prevent future problems from occurring
Generally speaking, dental implants can be implemented within a single appointment, or across multiple appointments – it depends on the current health of your mouth and the scope of the treatment. If bone grafting is necessary before the treatment, you may be required to wait a few weeks between the grafting and the implant placement.
