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