Dental Implants

Providing Beautiful Dental Implants for Our Patients

Losing a tooth shouldn’t be a reason to hide your smile. Affordable dental implants keep your mouth looking healthy and reduce the loss of bone in the jaw when a tooth does decay. Dr. Leong in Melbourne has been teaching about dental implants for more than 30 years. His experience and knowledge gives him an edge when it comes to complicated dental cases that other dentists cannot manage.

If you have lost one or two teeth and are not happy with dentures, implants might be a better option for you. You must be in good health and have strong gums and bones. Smokers and those with advanced periodontal disease may not have the bone and gum strength required. Although not everyone is a candidate, your implant dentist can review your health and mouth X-rays to determine if you are eligible. Dr. Leong has often corrected problems that others have thought unfixable.

How the MDL System Works

The Mini Drive-Lock (MDL) implants are a long-term denture stabilization fixed prosthetic that has the versatility of a two-piece system but the strength and size of one piece. At the first appointment, a post is implanted in the jaw. Once the jaw has healed from the surgery, the replacement piece is fitted and installed. Surgery is done in our office with a local anesthesia. Sedation is also available to help you relax during the procedure. There are a number of benefits to seeking out dental implants, including:
  • Surgery for dental implants is safer than ever before
  • You can chew normally
  • Your mouth looks natural, giving you more self-confidence
  • Implants prevent decay in the jawbone
