Demystifying Dental Implants
If you’ve knocked out your permanent teeth or are living with dentures, the shortcomings of the temporary fixes are obvious. They’ve embarrassed you by falling out, narrowed your food choices, and added extra steps to your morning and nightly routine. It’s crazy that such a small bone can cause such a disturbance in your life. Thankfully, oral surgeons have created a permanent fix to this problem. Dental Implants.
Dental implants are pretty straightforward. An implant is placed in your jawbone and given three to six months to fuse. During this time you’ll continue to wear your dentures. Once your implants have bonded, you’ll go back in for a second procedure where artificial teeth will be placed on the implants. After that, you’ll be better than before, because these new teeth can’t get cavities and won’t fall out again.
The best part about dental implants is that the technology is always changing. There are now single stage implants, where you’ll only experience one procedure. An even more exciting technology is TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™, which you can read about here.
If you’re ready to ditch the dentures and simplify your life, head over to your oral surgeon in Melbourne, Dr. Sedaros will discuss your options to help you make the best choice for your dental implants.
