Implant better option for the long run
Implants can be a life-changing experience for patients frustrated with unstable dentures or missing gaps.
Dr Beng So has done extensive training at Melbourne Dental School and at James Cook university with leading implantologist like Prof Neil Meredith and has a postgraduate diploma in implantology on top of his bachelor's degree. Dr So has interest in surgical side of dentistry and is one of few general dentist in Geelong that does implants in his own practice.
"Implants are no longer as scary and costly as they used to be" says Dr So. Most things are planned using computer generated system and 3D xrays and this has made treatments are a lot more predictable than they used to. With more predictability and flexibility, it has made it more affordable for many patients.
Furthermore, the advancement of technology and research has allowed Dr Beng So to very often give you teeth in a day especially if its a broken unrestorable front tooth . Traditionally, people wanting a permanent replacement of their tooth are made to wear a denture of some sort for a few months before the implant crown is removed. However, under the skilled operation of Dr So, many people can actually have their teeth replaced with implant at the same day the broken tooth is removed! This tricky procedure has many times saved the patient from having the inconvenience and discomfort of wearing a denture for many months.
