What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.
If, like many others, you feel implant dentistry is the choice for you, contact the experts at Moonee Ponds Periodontic & Implant Centre. Our dental surgeons will address your specific needs and considerations and will work with you very closely to help make your procedure a success.

How to Care for Dental Implants
Dental implants are being used as an option more frequently for long term tooth replacement. They give the look, feel and function you had with natural teeth. Just like your natural teeth, implants require regular maintenance care to ensure tissues surrounding the implant remain healthy.
Your Periodontist or Hygienist will show you how this should be done and may involve the use of an electric toothbrush (this practice recommends Oral B pro 1000), End-Tuft brush, interdental’s or floss.
It is important to clean your implant supported teeth above and below the gum line and in-between your neighbouring teeth. Keeping all appointments for review and periodontal maintenance is paramount to helping maintain the health and longevity of dental implants.
If you have difficulty cleaning around the implant or notice that the gums surrounding the fixture are red, bleeding or swollen please make an appointment as soon as possible to see one of the hygienists at Moonee Ponds Periodontic & Implant Centre.
Dental Implants need to be looked after just like your natural teeth.
