- The implants provide stronger biting pressure
- The risk of further loss of teeth is reduced through better jaw bone strength
- There is no need for separate cleaning or care routines
- They provide better overall comfort than dentures

Our team are highly experienced and provide superior care for patients seeking dental implants in Melbourne. We ensure that your procedure is performed with the greatest care and professionalism, dividing it into two important stages.
Stage 1: Preparation and Integration
The initial stage of the procedure to receive dental implants at our South Melbourne clinic involves preparing a space in the jaw and placing a highly durable titanium screw into the underlying structure. Once this has been completed, a period of time is required to allow the surrounding gum to heal and the bone to fuse to the implanted titanium. This process, known as osseointegration, can take several months and is necessary to create a fundamental level of support and strength within the jawbone structure. This is an extremely important stage of the process, as osseointegration ensures the best long term results.
Stage 2: Attaching the Artificial Tooth
Following this, our dental surgeons attach an abutment to the screw, onto which an artificial tooth can be secured. At this stage, we also make sure the implant is strong enough to support the forces associated with biting and other mouth functions.
