Why is it worth considering an implant?
You will notice the comfort, flexibility and natural appearance just as normal teeth
You will notice that there is no need to unnecessary file down neighbouring teeth
You will notice the constant stimulation to both bone and gums which will then maintain bone level keeping your facial appearance younger
You will notice more satisfactory hygiene maintenance is achieved when compared to dentures and bridges
“I have been so pleased with the care and attention I have recieved. But most importantly I am absolutely delighted with the results!”
Dental implants are a long-term solution for those who wish to restore their teeth especially when other treatments have not been effective. Implants are identical to natural teeth, and promote improved oral hygiene. They are a popular solution to replace missing teeth.
With dental implants, you can have that perfect smile and improve your quality of life — with much greater self-confidence
Our highly experienced surgeons take great pride in using the best-quality implants.
What is an implant?
A dental implant is comprised of a tiny titanium screw that acts as the root of a tooth. This is carefully inserted into the jaw bone. The surgery is performed in a dentist’s chair in our clinic, and only a local anaesthetic is required.
Titanium is the optimal material for this process because it is both highly durable and is easily accepted by the human body.
The surgical procedure is called implantology and it allows us to successfully restore just one tooth or for full reconstruction of all teeth. With implants, there is no need to file down the neighbouring teeth, which means you won’t have to wear a denture and your teeth will be fully restored to give you a beautiful smile.
How does dental implant work?
What is involved in the procedure?
We first take a detailed 3D scan. Surgery involves inserting the implant into the precise position in the jaw. The complete procedure is performed under local anaesthetic and after insertion of the implant; stitches will be in place for 7 to 10 days.
The implant will fuse with the bone which takes between 3 to 6 months. During this process we will provide a temporary tooth restoration so you can eat, talk, and laugh without embarrassment.
When healing is completed, we will restore your tooth. An impression of the area will be taken and a prosthetic tooth is then crafted. The prosthetic, bridge or crown is then connected to the inserted implant — and you have a brand new beautiful tooth that matches your natural teeth. You’ll have a great smile.
Advanced implant planning
Using 3D imaging, your dentist can determine the exact position of your dental implant. Your dentist will also assess both the bone quantity and the surrounding structures, including the mandibular canal. The next step is to measure the volume of the jaw bone, in case a sinus lift is necessary.
If you have dentures, you may want to discuss All-on-Four with your dentist. With just four implants, we can stabilise your dentures so they no longer slip. You will eat, talk and laugh without embarrassment. Our patients leave here very satisfied with All-on-Four.
With All-on-Four, you won’t need a bond graft. You will leave here with a fixed full-arch set of teeth on the day of your treatment. For this reason, All-on-Four is a cost-efficient solution.
How does All On Four method work?
What is involved?
With the All-on-Four technique, two implants are placed into the bone at a 45-degree angle. This gives the implant a strong connection with the bone. We can then reconstruct a full dental arch (upper and lower) with only 4 implants.
Using on a detailed 3D scan as a guide, the surgeon makes an entry into the bone and inserts the implant at exactly the correct position. The procedure is performed under local anaesthetic. After the implant is inserted, stitches are inserted for 7 to 10 days.
At this stage, the implant fuses with the bone over a period of 3 to 6 months. During this time, you will have a temporary tooth restoration so you can eat, smile and laugh without embarrassment.
When the healing process is complete, we will begin restoring your tooth. We will make an impression and create a new bridge or crown as needed.
Are you ready for:
A smile without the embarrassment of missing teeth?
A beautiful smile with dental implants?
A great smile that boosts confidence?
Dental implants are a wonderful way to get a great smile. But in some cases, it’s necessary to have a bone graft before getting implants.
Bone grafting is a method to reconstruct bone. It’s necessary when the jaw bone will not support a dental implant due to severe bone loss.
Bone loss naturally occurs when a tooth is lost or extracted. This is the Number One reason why it is critical to replace every lost tooth soon after it is lost.
The process of bone loss occurs during the first few months after the tooth loss. To prevent bone loss, and preserve the jaw bone, the most effective solution is to place the implant immediately after the tooth loss or within 8-10 weeks.
Bone graft healing process
The bone graft will require 4 to 6 months healing after the graft surgery. In some cases, it is possible to complete the graft and implant placement at the same time. In other cases, there may be at least one year waiting period between bone graft and implant placement. This wait is worthwhile to ensure good quality jaw bone for a long-lasting dental implant.
How does Bone Grafting work?
Is it time for:
A great smile that boosts your confidence?
A beautiful smile with no embarrassment over missing teeth?
Dental implants which can make this possible?
For older people, there may be need for sinus lift surgery before getting dental implants.
The sinuses are two hollow cavities located above the upper teeth at the back of the mouth. As people get older, the sinuses expand and the jawbone shrinks. If they lose their upper molars, the bone reduction is even more severe. Very often, the remaining jawbone is not strong enough to support a dental implant.
This procedure involves elevating the maxillary sinus membrane so we can fill the space under the sinus using special bone biomaterial. Within just a few months, the biomaterial becomes a solid structure similar to bone — and it can support a dental implant.
There are two methods of sinus lift procedure — the closed sinus lift method and the opened sinus lift method. The main differences between those methods are price, duration of the surgery, invasiveness and risk of complications.
How does Sinus Lift work?
Open sinus lift elevation method
Open sinus lift elevation method is used when the jaw bone width is less than 6-7 mm. This procedure is more invasive compared to the closed sinus method. However, it is more commonly used because we can lift the sinus membrane up to 5-8 mm higher.
Closed sinus lift elevation method
Closed sinus lift elevation method is far less invasive. We can inject biomaterial to strengthen the jaw bone — and often can place the implant on the same day. However, with this procedure there is an increased risk of the sinus membrane becoming perforated because the surgeon has a restricted view.
Your dentist will discuss these risks and benefits when planning your surgery, to help you make the best decision for your situation.
We will ensure that every stage of your implant placement will run smoothly accordingly to plan. However, you will have a very important role to ensure complete long-term success. Throughout and after the healing process, you must take careful care of your implant while at home. Regular check-ups are absolutely crucial to ensure that your new smile is long-lasting.
Post operative instruction
One day before and approximately six days after your surgery, you must take antibiotics to protect from inflammation and to accelerate the healing process
After surgery we will prescribe pain killers as a precaution; we will also give advice as to which pain killers are the most effective
Cold ice packs will also be issued as a precaution to reduce any tissue swelling
Stitches will be removed after 7-10 days
Long term maintenance of your implants
Home care is of paramount importance after your implant placement
Every six months you must have a dental examination
Every six months a professional hygiene treatment such as plaque removal and airflow stain removal will be required
Every year, get dental-X rays taken to examine the bone condition and take your dentist’s advice
Basic hygiene treatment is a must. Brush twice daily, floss once daily. Use mouthwash once daily.
As with your natural teeth, implants will last a very long time if you keep them clean and look after them
Protect your dental impants
As with your natural teeth, your dental implants will last a very long time if you take proper care of them. Seeing your dentist regularly is also very important in protecting implants. If problems are addressed early, you can prevent expensive complications.
