Dental Implants Melbourne North West
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are tiny posts that are implanted into the jawbone. Implants are secured as the bone naturally heals around them; a process called osseointegration. Once healed, a prosthesis such as a dental crown, bridge or dentures are secured onto the implant to act as your new tooth or teeth. Dental implants are preferred by patients to replace teeth because they look, feel, and function like your own, natural teeth.
