A dental implant process takes approximately an hour per implant. The process tends to spread out over a period of 6 months or sometimes more. At Healthy Smiles, you will have the most caring Blackburn dentists Melbourne, who will carry out the procedure, ensuring that you are comfortable all the time.

What is a dental implant?

A dental implant will help you replace your missing tooth. This can be titanium or zirconia.

This metal part serves the purpose of your tooth’s root. We will also add a crown to the implant to complete the process.

Our caring dental team in Blackburn will guide you to be prepared for the process. They keep your comfort in mind helping you go through the implant and healing process smoothly.

The dental implant process

All our dental procedures begin with a consultation. Our caring dentist in Blackburn will conduct a physical check and a CT scan to analyze your jaw structure. This helps us understand the extent of damage and identify a customized treatment plan which can meet your requirements. Healthy Smiles has an in-house sleep dentistry facility in Melbourne.  This ensures that the dental implant process can be carried out as painlessly as possible and with the least amount of fear because you will be sleeping through it.

You can ask questions and clear all doubts about the process, including information about the cost and length of time for completing the dental implant for you.

If you decide to proceed with the dental implant process, our caring dentist carries out further examinations and will collect the necessary information for the process to be completed.

Our gentle team of Blackburn dentists will then carry out the procedure on the appointed day. This will take approximately an hour for each implant. When the process is completed, you will go home with your implants, which look like real teeth.

For now, you will have temporary crowns that will be in place till the time your mouth heals from the procedure.

Post-procedure healing

You will receive detailed information on post-procedure care to make sure that you heal quickly. In the early stages, you may have to limit your diet to foods that you can easily chew. This reduces stress on the implants and accelerates the healing process. We will conduct check-ups at regular intervals to track the healing process.

At the same time, we will work on creating a permanent prosthesis that will be placed on the implant after you have completely healed. After this, you will be able to return to your regular food habits.

Follow oral hygiene for your dental implants

Our caring Healthy Smiles dental team in Blackburn will guide you on how to care for your dental implants by following oral hygiene. Make sure you visit the dental clinic for a timely checkup to ensure that the implants are in good condition.

With our dentists, you will receive gentle care, and they will make sure that you are comfortable throughout the procedure.
