Dental implants are a long-lasting treatment option for the restoration of missing teeth. Implants includes a titanium component that is surgically mounted into the jaw bone. They can be prepared in a variation of shapes and sizes to serve the ranging needs and remaing bone structure of individuals. The aim is to mimic tooth roots and allow your natural bone to osseointegrate - meaning that bone will attach itself to the implant to fully support it. Once this is healed, we will design a Picasso Porcelain Crown to be placed on top of the implant to imitate the natural tooth.
The process of dental implants is incredibly extensive. It varies greatly between individuals and case complexity. The best indication of the process involved and what you can expect will be outlined during your consultation appointment and examination with the dentist.
Dental implant costs vary depending on the type of implant you will need, how many you're looking at, the extent of the surgery, the complexity of the case as well as the crown to finish. Please feel free to book a consultation for a better understanding of the possible outcome and potential costs.

The titanium metal is completely safe and is the same material used in bone surgery.
Each person reacts and heals differently after dental implant surgery. Depending on your personal threshold and discomfort, our patients commonly are able to return to work the day after the implant procedure. We will thoroughly discourse this prior to your appointment.
Dental implants are suitable for most people with missing teeth. How your body reacts to the implant is dependent on a multitude of factors:
Your existing bone tissue and its health
Existing periodontal disease
Non-smoking (or at least quit during treatment)
Health of existing gum and teeth
All-On-4 is a growing, popular alternative for patients who are interested in replacing a majority to all their teeth, without the hassle for dentures. As the name suggests, it is the replacement of all teeth, supported on four implants.
All-On-4 is suitable for those who have strong and healthy gums and adequate bone tissue. As with all implants, it is essentially important to be free from periodontal disease, be a non-smoker and have good oral hygiene. A strong base is needed to support the implants. The best way to determine your suitability is through a thorough examination in the consultation appointment.
