Dr Larry Benge, The Malo Clinic at Bond Street’s lead implant dentist, as well as an international speaker and teacher in the fields of implant and aesthetic dentistry, explains dental implants:
What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is a medical grade titanium post placed into the jawbone as a substitute for a missing tooth root. The implant integrates naturally with the bone. Implants can also be for the entire upper and lower set of teeth, depending on the requirements. An implant for a single tooth is considered permanent and overcomes many of the challenges faced by more temporary solutions.
Are implants safe?
Teeth can be lost due to many reasons, but there is no reason why you should live without your teeth, as dental implants can provide a completely safe way of replacing a number of missing teeth, or all your teeth if necessary.
As with any surgical procedure there are some risks, however the expertise of your practitioner can help in reducing unnecessary risk. Bond Street Dental Malo Clinic offers one of the leading implant teams in Australia. We are also one of the few clinics that has a maxillofacial surgeon on staff (About our team).
Dental implants and Bond Street Dental Malo Clinic
Dental implants have developed into a structured, well-defined and researched procedure and are today considered the standard of care for many oral conditions. Malo Clinic has a worldwide reputation for its research, development and innovative solutions relating to implants. The All-On-4procedure was invented by Dr Paulo Malo of the Malo Clinic. Bond Street, thanks to our unique partnership with Malo Clinics globally, brings this level of expertise to Melbourne.
From replacing a single tooth, to full mouth rehabilitation with fixed replacement teeth implants, this has become a routine procedure at Bond Street Dental Malo Clinic. There are many advantages to permanent implants including replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth.
As a global innovator, Malo Clinic in conjunction with Bond Street Dental provides patients with an experienced implant team that has helped pioneer implantology in Australia.
The All-On-4® Procedure
The All-On-4® procedure was created by Dr Paulo Malo in Portugal, to overcome the risks of failure presented by implants that required bone grafting. The All-On-4 procedure is unique in that it uses the bone that the patient has available to anchor the implants. By avoiding the need for bone grafting, the procedure delivers some immediate benefits:
- Improved implant success rate.
- Lower cost to patient.
- Reduced number of operations.
- Immediate teeth.
