Dental Implants Near Burwood

Dental Implants Near Burwood

When a tooth is badly damaged and has no hope of survival, it has to come out. The best option is to replace it with an artificial tooth that we call a dental implant.

The concept is simple. A metal fixture – usually a screw – is placed in the jawbone to act as an anchor for a crown, which looks very much like the natural teeth around it.

Because implants are so effective, and the process is now so common, getting a dental implant to replace a missing tooth has become a relatively popular treatment option for patients near the Box Hill and Burwood area.

Can anyone get a dental implant?

While not everyone is an ideal candidate for a dental implant near Burwood, most people who have a good level of general physical health and reasonable oral hygiene can confidently go through this treatment.

Any patient who has a missing tooth (or more than one) or who has a very damaged tooth or teeth, should consider the option of getting a dental implant here at Middleborough Dental Care near Burwood.

The starting point for assessing the suitability of a candidate for a dental implant is by taking an x-ray of the jaw. We need a reasonable amount of dense bone tissue at the point of the implant to have the best chance of successful surgery.
