Dental Implants

Dental Implants are probably the most significant development in modern dentistry and have revolutionised our ability to replace missing teeth – as they have the ability to integrate with the jaw bone giving a very predictable, long-lasting and aesthetic solution. Everything from a single tooth replacement to multiple teeth or even entire upper and lower complete dental arches, can often be restored with Dental Implants.

Dental Implants are subject to patient suitability and with all surgical procedures there are some risks associated

A dental implant is a titanium screw placed into the bone to replace a missing tooth or even a tooth that is loose or broken down to the point that it cannot be saved. The implant (screw) acts as the support for a false tooth (crown) or multiple teeth (bridge) to be placed to replace the missing tooth or teeth.

    
 
Dental implants are placed under sterile, surgical conditions either under local anaesthetic in the dental chair or under general anaesthetic in a private hospital.

After a dental implant is placed a period of 6 - 12 weeks is necessary for the area to heal and for the implant to integrate and stabilise.  Once the implant has integrated your dentist will see you again for impressions or scans to be taken for the fabrication of the final crown, which is then attached to your implant giving you a functional and aesthetic tooth.

All-On-4: Stability & Confidence

The term All-on-4 refers to "all" teeth being supported "on four" dental implants.

All-on-4 is a fantastic way to permanently stabilise your denture. No more worrying about your denture falling out of place when your eating or talking.

 

As you can see the implants are placed so that each area of the jaw will be supported and the prosthesis is then attached permanently by your dentist giving secure and natural feeling teeth.

Please contact Dimos Dental today to see if All-on-4 is suitable for you.

and we can also rely on these to support a prosthesis fitted within days of the surgery. By using fewer dental implants there is a smaller number of components giving more versatility to design the most optimal function and aesthetics. Importantly, there is also less in the way of cleaning, which helps simplify the hygiene and maintenance over time.
