Dental Implants and You
By Dr Jannen Tan BDSc (Hons) (Melb)

 

Having cared for and created countless smiles for over 10 years, I have noticed a greatly increasing interest in Dental Implants over the years. I’d like to cover the basics of Implants and invite you to let me show you how Dental Implants can possibly transform your life.

 

In a nutshell, Dental Implants are usually made of Titanium and are designed to be placed in the jaw bone to help anchor a replacement tooth/teeth or dentures. Titanium is very compatible with the body and once placed, the implants anchor themselves into the bone. A single tooth or even multiple teeth can be made up and attached to the implant permanently; easily and effectively replacing teeth that have been lost in the past. Be it a single missing tooth, or a few missing teeth, easy implant solutions exist to permanently fill those gaps.

 

Modern implants are designed to be extremely long lasting. In fact, if looked after well, implants could last you for life, without need for ever replacing the actual implant. With the crown or denture that is attached to the implant, eventual wear and tear might mean replacement over the years. This is usually a very simple process and minimally or non invasive.

 

If you have dentures and hate them, implants can help! Those of you who have lower dentures will know how easily they move around and cause discomfort. With as little as 2 implants in the lower jaw, we can now secure these dentures in solidly. No more movement! 

 

For those with partial dentures, why not fill those gaps with an implant supported bridge, then throw those dentures in the bin forever! No more wires and plates!

 

The procedure is fairly simple. Most of my patients have done it with a simple local anaesthetic and an Implant can be placed in as quickly as 20 minutes. 

 

Every case is different and there is a lot to discuss. I invite you to speak with us about your needs at an appointment. We can also discuss easy finance options and payment plans which will make affordability a breeze!
