Dental Implants 


Poor oral hygiene, disease, injuries and accidents are prime reasons why people lose teeth. It is vital to address a missing tooth or teeth as soon as the loss occurs because gaps break the rigid structure of your mouth, which keep all teeth permanently aligned.

Additional pressure on surrounding teeth causes teeth to move out of place. Over time, missing teeth can produce a host of related dental problems such as eating and speech difficulties. Ultimately, one's nutrition and overall health may be compromised if one’s ability to eat certain foods is restricted.

Dental implants  replace missing teeth and are available at Pascoe Vale Dental Group to help our patients overcome tooth loss:

Dental Implants

A dental implant is a permanent artificial tooth root (titanium screw) integrated into a patient’s jawbone to hold a replacement tooth or bridge (group of replacement teeth) in place. They are highly successful and offer patients a multitude of benefits. Firstly, they are permanently anchored into the jawbone, so patients can confidently eat, speak and laugh without fearing their replacement tooth will fall out. Dental implants are colour matched to replicate the natural appearance and lustre of existing teeth. They’re also very durable and long-lasting.

Before dental implants are placed, your dentist will carry out a comprehensive examination to confirm that you have enough health jaw bone to hold the dental implant in place and ensure long-lasting results.

If you would like to discuss if Implants are suitable for you, please contact the practice directly on (03) 9354 7111 to arrange a referral for a CBCT X ray with our reputal diagnostic imaging centres and a consultation with our Dentist.
