Dental implants are widely regarded as one of the best solutions for replacing a missing tooth – or even a mouthful of missing teeth.
The restoration process is completely customised for each case and your final crown is fabricated by expert laboratory technicians. This produces a result that not only restores function but looks like a real tooth again.
A dental implant is a titanium post which is placed in the bone of your jaw, allowing the replacement of a missing tooth or of missing teeth. Essentially the implant acts as a new replacement root. Once the bone has healed around the implant it can then be restored.
Here at Shine Dental we make use of multiple implant systems, ensuring that they are well supported and documented. Notably, two of the implant systems that we use are Nobel Biocare Implants and Neodent, both of which enjoy a great deal of clinical and scientific supporting data.
Implants can be used:
To replace a single tooth
To replace several teeth by supporting a bridge
To replace a full arch of teeth with a fixed bridge
To secure a removable denture
“All on 4™” Same Day Teeth
The “All on 4™” is an exciting treatment procedure that utilises four dental implants to support a full jaw of teeth. This technique allows us to secure a full set of functioning teeth onto the implants – on the same day as their placement.
This treatment protocol represents a considerable advantage to those individuals wishing to avoid removable dentures, during the transitional phase of tooth extraction and implant healing. Your dentist will assess your suitability for “All on 4™” treatment.
If you are tired of wearing removable dentures or are in the unfortunate position of needing teeth removed please speak to one of our team.
