If you are missing a tooth due to injury, tooth decay, or gum disease, you may find it difficult to speak clearly or chew food comfortably. You may be embarrassed by the appearance of your smile.

Smile for Life offers a complete range of dental implants, providing a permanent solution to tooth loss.

Smile for Life (Dentist South Melbourne) Dental implants allow replacement of missing or damaged teeth – without resorting to uncomfortable dentures or bridgework. Dental implants performed by Dr. Selers in our South Melbourne Practice have a very high success rate and are one of modern dentistry’s most effective developments.

Dr. Selers takes great pride in the quality of his crowns and implants – and he should – they are amazing.

  • A dental implant functions as one of your own natural teeth and consists of a replacement root and a natural-looking crown. The implant replaces a lost tooth’s function and appearance without involving the teeth next to it, as a bridge or dentures do. The main benefit of a dental implant is that it provides solid support for the new tooth (crown).

    The procedure happens in stages over a number of months. First, we place a small titanium post (the implant) into the bone socket of the missing tooth. The patient must have an established underlying bone structure for the implant to be placed. Over the next few months, the jawbone will heal around the implant, attaching the implant securely to the jaw. Once the healing is complete and the titanium post is secure, a connector (called an abutment) is attached to the post to hold the new tooth in place. Finally, a new, artificial tooth (a crown) is placed over the abutment.

    Our dental implant technologies include the highest quality materials from Nobel Biocare, Straumann, and Astra Tech Dental, who are leaders in the field. The crown is made of tooth-coloured porcelain and will have the look and feel of your own natural teeth. The tooth will function as one of your own teeth because the implant is secured within your jawbone.

  • There are two types of crowns: a removable implant prosthesis and a fixed implant prosthesis. The removable type is similar to a removable denture and can be easily removed for daily cleaning or repair. This is a good choice when several teeth need to be replaced. The fixed type means that the crown is cemented or screwed onto the abutment and you cannot remove it.

    The durability and the strength of dental implants means that you can once again have the ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
