How can Teeth on Implants® improve your smile?

Teeth on Implants® is a complete oral rehabilitation that will give you beautiful looking teeth and allow you to speak, smile and laugh with renewed confidence. Your new set of teeth will be perfectly aligned and have just the right shade to match the rest of your remaining natural teeth if you choose to restore only one arch.

Functionally, your new Teeth on Implants® bridge will work just as well as normal and healthy natural teeth. Since it is a fixed replacement, you don’t have to worry about having your teeth fall out like you would with dentures.

Your new Teeth on Implants® bridge will also be modeled and designed using advanced CAD/CAM technology to make sure you get a perfect fit. Before getting the implant surgery our dentists will perform a 3D scan of your jaw, gums and teeth which ensures that extremely accurate measurements are made so that your new set of implants supported bridges will come out perfectly the first time around.

Common questions answered on dental implants

How many appointments do you need for implants?

Prior to commencing implant treatment, you will need at least two appointments with your dentist. The reasons for these appointment is to discuss the best treatment options for you and the potential complications. The cost of the treatment and consent will be discussed in detail within these appointments.

Required radiographs (x-rays) are taken to allow safe and accurate planning. In addition, digital scanning, or impressions, along with intraoral photographs are taken. This will allow the dentist to discuss all the options available to you. It is crucial to ask all of the questions you have and express all of your concerns.

What is involved in the placement of dental implants?

The procedure involves placing one or more pre-determined titanium screws in the jaw bone. The location and size of the implants are all determined prior to the surgery day. Please refer to our website videos for more information.

How painful is the procedure and how much pain is involved afterwards?

During the procedure, local anaesthetics will be used. The implant procedure is a very delicate and accurate procedure, and therefore, patient comfort is crucial to us.

Post-operatively (after surgical placement), we usually prescribe the adequate antibiotics and possible painkillers depending on the procedures. We recommend that you plan to have a minimum of one day off intense physical activity to allow healing and to reduce the risk of infection.

Could the procedure be done under sedation?

Absolutely, depending on your concerns, we can perform the procedure under either oral sedation, twilight or I.V sedation.

Twilight sedation means you will fall asleep during the procedure, you won’t have any memory of the event. Please ensure you organise a driver and a carer to look after you for the remainder of the day. Please refer to the twilight sedation section of our website. We have a wonderful dentist who is a qualified dental sedationist.

Do dental implants fail?

Dental implants usually have a long term and high success rate, but like any other options, limitations do exist, and failure can occur.

Some of the factors that reduce the success rate are,

  • Smoking
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Chronic systemic disease
  • Large chewing forces on a newly placed implant

While all the above may have an effect of the success rate, they are not contraindications for dental implants. Regular follow ups and hygiene appointments are absolutely crucial to ensure the health of your implants.

What are the main contradictions to dental implants?
  • Uncontrolled systemic disease, such as diabetes, osteoporosis, pulmonary issues.
  • Patients receiving high doses of infusions for multiple myeloma and severe osteoporosis.
  • Patients receiving chemotherapy drugs.
  • Bleeding disorders.
  • Immune suppressive disorders.
  • Age of people younger then approximately eighteen years of age.
  • Bone disorders such as Paget’s disease.

Your health and safety are paramount to us and therefore any issues we have related to your medical health are discussed with your medical practitioner.

Please note that all surgical procedures carry risks including infection. These treatments do not apply to and cannot be performed on anyone. A process of thorough examinations and assessment is required, and the outcomes may vary depending on multiple factors.
