Smiles Made Whole with Dental Implants at Melbourne Dental Office
At the cosmetic and restorative dentistry practice of Dr. Lisa Goff, we offer dental implant restorations for patients who are missing teeth. Dental implants are an optimal choice for tooth replacement!
Missing teeth not only affect your appearance, but can also put your oral health in jeopardy. Missing teeth can cause:
- Gum disease
- Shifting teeth
- Loosening teeth
- Bone loss
Dental implants begin with a titanium post that’s embedded into your jawbone. This is beneficial because titanium is a biocompatible material—that means your jawbone treats it just like a real tooth root. The bone fuses around the post, and will keep your jawbone strong and healthy!
What are the other reasons you should consider dental implants to make your smile whole again? Dental implants:
- Strengthen your jawbone
- Allow normal chewing
- Align your bite
- Prevent bone loss
- Look natural
- Are durable and long lasting
- Contribute to good oral health
- Resist staining
- Won’t impede speech
At the restorative dentistry practice of Dr. Lisa Goff, we will comfortably place your dental implant restoration. For replacing a single tooth, we use a porcelain crown that’s been custom-made to fit perfectly. Porcelain crowns look, feel, and function just like real teeth. We can also use the titanium post as an anchor point to secure dentures, partials, and crown and bridges.
