How do Dental Implants Work?
A dental Implant is a titanium “root” that integrates directly with the surrounding bone and replaces the function of the natural tooth. Our Implants are made using the best quality medical grade titanium with proven biocompatibility with treated surface to facilitate bone integration.
Our aim is to improve your health, chewing function and/or aesthetic appearance and once healing and restoration is complete, you will be able to enjoy a wide variety of foods again. Dental implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that can occur when teeth are missing.
What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?
Dental implants make you feel comfortable. You can eat whatever you want. Your teeth are strong and stable. They look and feel like your own teeth, too.
Implants provide a lifelong solution. When you maintain good oral hygiene, your implants can last your whole life. This makes implants an efficient and economic long-term solution.
Dental implants support your health. When you lose a tooth, the jaw bone and gum starts to resorb, and increasingly so if you lose several teeth. Implants protect healthy teeth, prevent bone loss and help you keep your natural look.

What Does the Procedure Involve?
Before we begin the dental implant process, you will come in for a personal consultation. This will give you the opportunity to raise any questions and concerns you might have, and discuss all of your treatment options with your dentist. Your dentist will also confirm whether or not you are a good candidate for All-On-4 dental implant surgery. Ideally, viable candidates for the procedure are in good overall health, have good oral heath and healthy gum tissue, and have adequate bone in the jaw.
During the implant procedure itself, your dentist will administer an anaesthetic to the site of treatment before carefully cutting your gum in order to expose your jaw bone. They will then drill holes into the bone and place the implants into the bone. The gum will then be stitched closed over the implant post.
Once your implants have been placed, your jaw bone will fuse with the implant in a process known as osseointegration. This process can take anywhere between two and six months, during which time the implant will become a solid foundation for an artificial tooth.
When the osseointegration process is complete, and the implant has fused with the jaw bone, you will come in for another appointment. At this time, your dentist will reopen the gum and attach an abutment to the implant. An abutment is a piece of the implant that sticks up above the gum to which a crown is attached. Once the abutment has been successfully placed, a crown is fabricated and fixed in place.
What Is the Difference Between All-On-4 And Dental Implants?
All-On-4 dental implants refer to full-arch fixed dental implant bridges, rather than individual implants. The All-On-4 implant system is strategically placed with the use of four implants, and works to restore oral function just as successfully as traditional implants. One of the advantages of the All-On-4 system is that treatment and recovery time is generally reduced when compared to traditional implants. The result is natural-looking restorations that look and function just like your natural teeth.
When you come in for a consultation, your dentist will discuss the procedure in detail with you and let you know if you are suited to All-On-4 dental implants. Your dentist will then guide you through the process.
