Dental implants in Kew – Enjoy a specialist level of dental care
Finding the right treatment for every patient requires careful evaluation across a multitude of factors. Every dental condition is unique.
For this reason, CBCT scanning technology is used to carefully study the quality and quantity of bone. This helps to decide upon the number and type of implants needed in a particular situation.
In some instances, the foundation (bone) needs to be rebuilt first.
Based on a full clinical examination, our Specialist Prosthodontist will customise your treatment plan to your individual requirements.
At our dental practice here in Kew, Dr Kosalram and the team have meticulously set up processes in place to deliver complete implant dentistry solutions.
- Implant treatment planning
- Bone replacement (grafting) where necessary
- Implant placement using digital or conventional techniques
- Final prosthesis/ teeth delivery
All of the above results in a seamless treatment experience for patients. Quality dental implants from companies such as Straumann, Astra, BioHorizons, Biomet 3i and Noble Biocare are used to treat our patients. These are known and trusted implant companies that are recognised worldwide.
These products, coupled with the latest technology, allows the team at Melbourne East Prosthodontics to accurately replace:
- A single tooth
- Several teeth or a segment of the jaw
- An entire arch of teeth
Dental implant procedures in Kew
Throughout the dental implant treatment procedures, patients can be rest assured that their health and well-being are our number one priority. The implant procedure is phased as follows:
A comprehensive examination
A 3-dimensional investigation of the jaw bone is undertaken at the implant placement site. This is to determine the placement accuracy of your dental implant/ implants. From this, a digital impression/ guide is made.
Inserting dental implants
Meticulous planning reduces the surgery time needed to insert the dental implant into the jaw. An Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon or Periodontist will perform your surgery.
Often, after surgery, there will be a period of healing before the permanent crown/ bridge is inserted. This time period ranges between 3-6 months and allows for successful bone integration.
Fabricating the permanent crown
Insert and follow-up
Dr Kosalram will insert your permanent crown and follow-up with regular appointments to ensure your comfort and functionality of your new crown/ bridge. We believe regular follow-up appointments are essential for treatment success and encourage our patients to keep these appointments.
