Dental Implants near Richmond North

Boroondara Family Dentist offers quality dental implants for patients in Richmond North and the surrounding suburbs.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial, titanium structures that are placed in the jaw bone to replace missing roots and allow the replacement of one or more missing teeth. The implants our dentists mostly are Swiss-made Straumann implants. Around the world, these are considered to be the best.

Who can have dental implants?

Not every missing tooth can be replaced with an implant. To make sure one is suitable, you will need x-rays and, possibly, 3D scans. Missing teeth can be replaced on one or more implants with an implant crown, implant bridge, or implant supported dentures.

What is treatment like?

Treatment is carried out in two stages. The first is a surgical implant placement, and the second—usually around 8-weeks later—is tooth replacement.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Because dental implants are firmly secured to the jaw, they can withstand greater chewing forces than dentures. They also don’t require existing teeth to be cut and shaped, and they look and feel like natural teeth. Restoring missing teeth prevents facial sagging and the premature appearance of wrinkles.
