Dental Implants in St Kilda

Have you lost one or more teeth and need a long-lasting replacement that can prevent bone loss, is easy to care for, and is safe for adjacent natural teeth? At Chapel Gate Dental, our team can provide dental implants which have become a mainstream part of modern dentistry. If you need advice on treatment options for replacing your missing teeth, you can rely on us to help.

What is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are artificial roots that are securely attached to the jaw. They are cylindrical devices made out of medical grade titanium and are placed in the location of the missing tooth or teeth. They bond with the bone and are capped with a ceramic crown that imitates the existing teeth.

What Does the Dental Implant Procedure Involve?

Step 1:
The first step involved in a tooth implant procedure is the development of a personalised treatment plan. Our dentists are experienced in restorative dentistry and oral surgery which means they can work with you to determine an implant option and create a plan that addresses your specific needs.

Step 2:
Next, the dental implant is placed into the bone socket which takes around 6 to 12 weeks to anchor securely in the jaw. Once the implant is bonded to the jawbone, an abutment (a connector post) is attached to hold the new tooth. Following this, a crown is attached to the abutment. As the tooth implant is secured within the jawbone, it looks and functions like your natural teeth.

The Benefits of Dental Implants:

A tooth implant offers numerous benefits, some of which include:

  • Dental implants are strong, stable and great for restoring lost teeth.
  • They look, fit and function like a natural tooth and are built to last for years.
  • They help you maintain the shape of your face and smile.
  • Dental implants are the only restoration option that inspires natural bone.
  • With dental implants, you can speak easily and eat the foods that you love.
  • They prevent adjacent teeth from shifting.
