Dental Implant

dental_implant01Dental implants are the best tooth replacement system available anywhere in the world! We are very proud to offer both implant placement and implant restoration, right here, at Craigieburn Dental Gallery.Implants are an ideal option for anyone who has lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, dental decay, or some other reason. While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework, since implants do not rely on neighbouring teeth for support.

Dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth. They are custom made and can be matched to the colour of your other teeth.
Under proper conditions and with diligent home maintenance, implants can last a very long time.

Implants are placed in a short single appointment, and we even offer mild sedation for anyone feeling a little nervous.

dental_implant02FAQs about dental implants:

Q: Is there an age limit on people getting implant?

A: Cost could vary case by case but our dentist will always give you a full quotation before starting treatment. Interest free payment plan is also available

Q: Is it painful?
A: Local anaesthetics will be used during the process, it is very similar to having a filling done.

Q: Is implant the only option?
A: There are other options to replace missing teeth such as bridges and dentures. Sometimes there are cases where bridges or dentures could be more suitable. Again our dentist will always advise you of all the options.

A surgical or invasive procedure carries risk. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
