As one of the most innovative and high quality suppliers of dental implants, we are proud to use MIS implants…
At SV Implant Centre in Fitzroy we provide our patients with top of the line products and treatments, however the success of your treatment is often based on more than just the implant itself. There are other factors including; lifestyle choices, the patient’s ability to heal and after care that all contribute to the success of your dental implant. During your consultation we will discuss all the risks and the chance of implant failure to ensure you understand all the scenarios before treatment. Like any surgical procedure, dental implant surgery will carry some risks – however with our MIS implants and our team of world class dental professionals, you can rest assured knowing your dental concerns are in good hands.
We feel confident about using MIS implants
At our Melbourne implant clinic we use MIS implants which have a success rate of over 97% and an increased fracture resistance. We feel extremely confident with this product and after we establish whether implant dentistry is right for your dental needs, we can begin the implant process. The process for receiving dental implants is done in three stages. The stages include:
- Placing the implants – we will surgically place your implant into your jaw to fuse with the jaw bone
- Healing – you will have a period of time to allow the implant to fuse to the jaw bone
- Placing the crown – this is the final stage where the prosthetic tooth is attached to the implant
Lifestyle choices that can affect the success rate of your implants
Smoking is the biggest concern when it comes to the success rate of your dental implants. Research has shown that nicotine can have a negative effect on your blood flow and thus affect the ability of your implant to heal. For chain smokers they may be more susceptible to infection, periodontal disease and bone loss. For best results after your dental implant treatment we recommend avoiding smoking if possible or discuss your options with our team during your consultation.
Health conditions that may affect the success of your implants
Dental surgery, like any surgery, carries risks with it – which is why we generally avoid prescribing this treatment for patients suffering from diabetes or bleeding disorders. If you require treatment for your missing tooth but are unsure whether you are eligible, please visit our team of professionals here at SV Implant Centre to see if you are suited for treatment.
Taking care of your implants is a critical part of ensuring their success – this means during and after your treatment you will need to ensure your new teeth are properly maintained. Your implants will look and feel just like your natural teeth and should be maintained like normal. That means brushing twice a day and flossing once daily, just because your prosthetic tooth can’t get a cavity doesn’t mean it can’t get infected. Successful implants have been known to last for more than 20 years if taken care of properly. Before surgery we will discuss more specifically about after care instructions and the healing process between planting the implant and attaching the crown.
