Invest in a lifetime of healthy, appealing smiles with durable implants to replace missing or failing teeth

By nature, dental implants are affordable. When considering any investment, weighing the cost and benefits is essential. Resist the urge to go with the lowest-cost option. Value is more important. And implant-supported prosthetics (as a solution for missing and failing teeth) provide considerable value to our patients in Moonee Ponds, Sunbury, greater Melbourne, and across southern Victoria.

Implants are small posts. Made from biocompatible material like titanium or zirconium and placed in the jawbone, these posts are designed to naturally fuse or join the surrounding tissue. Once this process has occurred, Dr Terry Rose will attach the prosthetic teeth to the implants as necessary. One crown may be attached to a single implant to replace one tooth. Or minimal implants may be connected to a maximum number of prosthetic teeth as part of an implant-supported bridge or denture. 

In turn, the implant is designed to function like a tooth root. It stabilises and supports the prosthetic crown, bridge, and partial or complete denture. Many benefits flow from this unique design, which mimics the structure of natural teeth. Conventional prosthetics have only accounted for the visible parts of the teeth – the white crown and, in the case of dentures, the tissue at the gum line. 

These conventional options have relied on neighbouring “anchor” teeth, natural suction, and denture products to hold the prosthetics in place. The lifespan of the traditional bridge may be shortened due to the strain placed on the anchor teeth. Likewise, without ongoing services such as relining and rebasing, the “life” of a denture may also be threatened. Ultimately, these dentures must be replaced to conform to the changing contours of the mouth (due to bone loss) and to restore a proper fit. 

Additional services associated with the “maintenance” of these earlier-generation prosthetic options and their replacements only add to the cost of bridges and dentures. So, while they may cost less than implants upfront, these alternatives are not as affordable over the longer term.

Consider how implants:

  • Can last a lifetime. 
  • Support lasting function and health by keeping the jawbone strong. 
  • Require no “special services,” such as relining, to retain a proper fit. 
  • Can be cared for like natural teeth, with no special products or time-consuming cleaning techniques.
  • Do not threaten the health of surrounding tissues and teeth; for instance, conventional bridges may be harder for some patients to clean, leaving the “anchor teeth” vulnerable to dental decay.
  • Are not associated with complications such as bone loss that can ultimately lead to the need for more costly, aggressive, and invasive restorative procedures.

Implants also provide a great deal of flexibility. We can easily place bridgework, for instance, between implants if more teeth are lost in the future. Likewise, we can work with existing denture wearers to enhance the comfort of their prosthetics with implants. Our advanced technologies and skills help minimise the time, costs, and risks associated with implant treatment

Safe Amalgam Removal Protocol

  • Chlorella drink prior is given prior to treatment and a mouth rinse post-treatment. Chlorella can help bind and prevent mercury absorption.
  • Physical protective barriers - Masks, protective coverings, eyewear, in-mouth non-latex dental dams, and other steps are taken to prevent physical contact with mercury for the patient and staff.
  • Oral evacuation - Generous amounts of water are used to continuously rinse particulate matter from the mouth while suctioning it away. Combined with protective dental dams, this prevents patients from swallowing dental amalgam particles during treatment. Additionally, the rinsing helps lower the temperature of the filling, reducing the amount of mercury vapour released.
  • External air - A continuous supply of non-contaminated air or oxygen is delivered via a mask or similar apparatus, preventing inhalation of mercury vapour or particles.
  • "Chunk it out" method - Rather than using a drill to grind the filling down, it is carefully removed in the largest possible pieces, minimising friction, vaporisation.
  • High Volume Evacuation Suction is used by the dental assistant to remove amalgam particles in the mouth.
  • High Volume Air suction and Air Purifiers are used in the clinical room that is able to remove mercury vapour from the room.
  • Amalgam separator use - This device collects mercury-contaminated waste before it can enter the sewage system, allowing us to dispose of it safely.
