When it comes to replacing missing teeth, we recommend choosing a permanent restoration. For years, dental implants have been considered the ideal restoration for patients who need to replace one or more missing teeth. At Smile Quest Dentists , Dr. Mehrdad works deligently to provide patients with personalized dental implants solutions. From your first consultation to your treatment, our dentist at Smile Quest Dentist Bentleigh is dedicated to helping you achieve your best smile yet.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a reliable, innovative approach to replacing missing teeth. During this treatment, biocompatible implant posts are placed within the jaw bone. Over the course of recovery, these implants become a permanent part of the dental landscape and create a secure foundation for the eventual restoration.
There is a great deal of versatility that comes with dental implants. While single implants can be used to replace single missing teeth, multiple implants can also be placed to support more extensive restorations. At our Bentleigh dental practice, we offer a range of implant-supported restorations, including dentures, bridges and crowns.
There are a number of other advantages associated with dental implants. From an oral health perspective, replacing missing teeth with dental implants rather than bridges or dentures helps protect the well-being of otherwise healthy tissue. As implants are self-supportive, neighboring teeth do not need to be altered in order to support a bridge. Dental implants are surgically placed into bone tissue, which helps stimulate bone health and ultimately preserves facial structure, preventing the appearance of facial sagging that can accompany tooth loss.
Receiving Dental Implants at Smile Quest Dentist Bentleigh
We are committed to providing patients with restoration options that proactively address immediate and future dental needs. When creating dental implant treatment plans, our dentist works closely with experienced periodontists in order to ensure successful outcomes.
Starting with your first consultation, patients undergo an in-depth evaluation where Dr. Mehrdad looks at the condition of bone tissue as well as health of the smile overall to determine the best means of placing implants. As bone density can impact the success of your dental implant, patients with deteriorated bone tissue may need to undergo preliminary bone reinforcement treatments. For patients replacing damaged teeth with dental implants, extraction procedures will be included into your overall treatment plan.
After your dental implants have been placed by one of our partner periodontists, patients come in to have impressions taken for their final restoration. Once the implant has been fully integrated into bone tissue, the restoration is placed. By the end of treatment, patients are able to enjoy a completely new, enhanced smile.
