As a cosmetic dentistry option at Hawthorn East Dental in Melbourne, dental implants are certainly popular. They are used when you need to replace a single tooth or more than one tooth.
The reason people love this dental option is that Dental Implants look real, are permanent and restore your smile and confidence.
There are other things to consider if you are interested in dental implants in Melbourne:
The Experience of the Cosmetic Dentist
Getting dental implants is a dental procedure that requires a number of appointments including the procedure itself and a follow-up. Since dental implants require two parts; the fixture made of medical-grade titanium and the prosthesis which is the real looking tooth that is matched to the colour of your other teeth, it’s reasonable to expect this will take more than one appointment.
Dr David Cao has over a decade of experience as a cosmetic dentist and is a member of the Australasian Academy of Dento-Facial Aesthetics. Thus, this is a procedure he has done many times successfully.
The State of your Oral Health
Dental implants can only be recommended after a thorough dental assessment of your oral health. If cosmetic dentistry is needed, a plan will then be discussed with you.
Your Insurance Options for Dental Implants Melbourne and Your Budget
It will depend on your insurance as to whether you are covered for dental implants. We accept many types of private health insurance providers. Speak with your provider or ask us about private health as there are other cost savings when you are part of the smile.com.au insurance.
If you don’t have private health insurance or are not considering getting any then you’ll need to consider your budget as generally, dental implants do require a considerable investment due to the procedure and materials used.
The Cost of Dental Implants
The cost of getting dental implants in Melbourne will vary. It will depend on the health of your existing teeth, your oral hygiene and how many teeth you will need. The cost of dental implants is discussed and a treatment plan will be provided at your appointment so you know what to expect.
The Risks of Dental Implants
As with any procedure, there is always a risk but it should also give you the confidence to know that dental implants are considered to be one of the safest types of dental surgery.
There is a possibility of infection at the site, integration issues, fractures or breakage, nearby structure injury.
It will help to know that your dentist is highly qualified and experienced thereby reducing the risks to you. Here at Hawthorn East Dental, we take the utmost care and are always happy to discuss any concerns you may have. We want you going in confident and comfortable with your choice.
The Benefits of Dental Implants Melbourne
When you are missing a tooth or teeth, the impact is greater than just not being able to smile. Studies have shown that many dental issues impact your self-esteem and quality of life. Being unable to smile with confidence impacts your interactions with others, how they view you and your own well-being.
Having dental implants means you have a permanent dental solution that does not require the same maintenance of dentures, false removable teeth or plates. People around you won’t even be aware you have dental implants since they are coloured to match your existing teeth and look completely natural.
