Missing teeth make eating and speaking a challenge. Not to mention, gaps in your smile can cause negative feelings about your appearance. If you have lost teeth and you are considering dental implants in Pascoe Vale, our team at Lumino Smiles will help you decide if dental implants are right for you. We will always present all of your treatment options and help you make a choice that best suits you.
Three main factors can improve your dental implant success.
You Are Committed to Good Oral Health
As with both your natural teeth and your dentistry, taking care of your teeth and gums is an integral aspect of oral health success. Missed dental appointments and inadequate home care may put your smile – and your dental implants – at risk.
- Brush twice daily using proper form
- Floss in between each tooth
- Stay on track with your check-up and clean
One of the most convenient benefits of dental implants is that you can take care of them the same way you take care of your natural teeth without any specific tools or tricks.
You Replace Teeth Promptly
When tooth loss occurs, or you have extractions, the underlying bone will begin to deteriorate. Seeking prompt teeth replacement will give us more adequate bone to work with. If bone loss occurs and cannot support the implant screw and the load caused by chewing, bone grafting can make dental implant treatment a possibility.
We use the latest digital x-ray technology to evaluate bone and determine proper placement for dental implants.
Your Teeth and Gums Are Healthy
Before performing surgery, Dr Amir Kiaee will conduct a full evaluation to rule out any active gum infection or decay, so that your dental implant gets the best start for success.
