Implants replicate tooth roots and are surgically placed into the jawbone. Implants are made of titanium or Ceramic and rely solely on osseo integration to form a strong bond and sound foundation to support the crown prosthesis that is placed onto the fixture.
Crown prosthesis are made of high grade porcelain and zirconia (lava, German). All Prosthesis used at PMD Dental Care are fabricated locally at Seaside Dental Studio, including complex angled implants that are fabricated at Osteon Medical and Atlantis (Sweden)
For dental implants to be successful each candidate must:
Have adequate bone quality and volume
Meet general medical requirements
Practise good oral hygiene
A consultation is required to assess whether dental implants are the best option for you. At this consultation bone levels will be assessed with the use of x-rays and in-chair examinations..
Our Melbourne clinic is one of two select clinic who can offer this metal-free all-ceramic solution in Victoria.
From an aesthetic standpoint our metal-free implants are white and have the natural translucency of natural teeth, so the grey hue that can appear with some titanium types at the gum line is no longer a concern.They are ultra-bio-compatible. The surrounding gum wraps around the implant just like it does for a real tooth, offering better gum health.
Which offers us a unique esthetic solution to treat patients with specific needs. While some patients have a thin gingiva biotype, which requires a specific treatment approach, other patients express their explicit wish for a metal-free alternative.
The Straumann® PURE Ceramic Implant is based on decades of experience and offers us a unique esthetic solution to treat patients with specific needs.
Feel free to book in for a complimentary consultation to see if you are a good candidate for an Implant.
