Losing your teeth can affect your appearance and diminish your confidence if you feel self-conscious in social situations. Gaps can also make speaking difficult, which can make you feel even more awkward. You may have resigned yourself to putting up with an unsightly smile or removeable dentures, even though they might come loose and can be uncomfortable because they rub. Imagine a life without denture glue, worrying about how your smile looks and wondering whether you are going to embarrass yourself? If you would like to experience such a life, then you may benefit from checking out dental implants. Elsternwick is the home of Mysmile clinic and we are proud of our experience in fitting implants.
What should I expect?
When you have dental implants in Elsternwick, we invite you for a consultation to find out what you would like to achieve. We check your underlying oral health and take detailed information including photographs, accurate measurements, scans and x-rays. The implants are small metal screws that are placed into the jaw during a minor operation. During healing, the bones and blood vessels mesh around the implants and stabilise them. When they are secure, they form a base for single replacement teeth, a bridge or fixed denture. They do require the same high levels of care that natural teeth do but, if looked after properly, having dental implants in Elsternwick provides a stable, lasting solution to missing teeth.
Love your smile again
When you choose dental implants in Elsternwick, you will benefit from having natural-looking replacements to your lost teeth. This improves your smile, getting rid of gaps, and also provides your cheeks with support from the inside. This can prevent the sagging that can occur when you have missing teeth. The implants themselves are totally hidden beneath the gum, and your replacement teeth match the size and tone of any remaining teeth and complement the shape of your mouth. Knowing that your teeth are secure and look great means that you can smile with confidence and enjoy looking in the mirror again.
We look forward to discussing how having dental implants in Elsternwick will give you more than one reason to smile.
