About Dental Implants

What are Dental Implants?

A long-term, life-changing solution for missing teeth.

Dental Implants are high-grade titanium screws that are placed into the jaw bone surgically. They vary in design, they have different lengths and widths depending on the volume of bone available. 

Once the Implant has been surgically placed into the jaw bone, the implant, and bone fuse together, this is called osseointegration. This process allows the implant to replicate the function of a natural tooth’s root. The implant acts as an anchor for the restorative component that is designed to replace the missing tooth, this is usually a fixed crown, bridge, or denture. 

As an independent dental clinic, we have the option to choose what implants we use to provide the best outcome for our patients. At SmileBox Dental we offer two brands of Dental Implants, Ostemm (Dental Implant brand from South Korea) and Straumann (Dental Implant brand from Switzerland).

All on 4 implants

All-on-4 dental treatment is a specialised dental implant procedure that is designed to replace a full arch of missing teeth with just four dental implants. The procedure involves the placement of four dental implants into the jawbone at specific angles, which provides a secure foundation for a custom-made bridge or denture.

The procedure is typically performed under local anaesthesia, and can be completed in a single day, making it a popular choice for you if you want to avoid the inconvenience of multiple appointments.

Advantages of All-on-4 Implants

The All-on-4 treatment offers many advantages over traditional dental implant procedures, including:

  1. Fewer Implants: All-on-4 requires only four dental implants, compared to traditional implant procedures that require up to eight or more implants. This makes the procedure less invasive and more cost-effective.
  2. Improved Stability: The angled placement of the implants in the All-on-4 procedure maximises contact between the implant and the jawbone, providing superior stability and strength.
  3. Immediate Results: Patients can receive their final bridge or denture on the same day as the implant procedure, which means they can leave the dental office with a fully restored smile.
  4. Reduced Healing Time: The All-on-4 procedure requires less healing time than traditional implant procedures, as the angled placement of the implants reduces the need for bone grafting, which is a time-consuming and invasive procedure
  5. Increased Comfort: With All-on-4, patients experience less discomfort and fewer complications than with traditional implant procedures, as the procedure is less invasive and requires fewer implants.

Disadvantages of All-on-4 Implants

However, like any dental procedure, the All-on-4 treatment also has some potential drawbacks to consider, such as:

  1. Cost: The All-on-4 procedure can be more expensive than traditional dentures, although it is often less expensive than traditional implant procedures.
  2. Not Suitable for Everyone: Not everyone is a good candidate for All-on-4, as the procedure requires a healthy jawbone and good oral hygiene habits.
  3. Maintenance: Patients must maintain good oral hygiene and schedule regular dental appointments to ensure the longevity of the All-on-4 treatment.
  4. Potential Complications: Like any dental procedure, All-on-4 can have potential complications, such as implant failure or infection.

Overall, the All-on-4 dental treatment is a specialised and effective procedure for replacing missing teeth. It offers many advantages over traditional implant procedures, including fewer implants, improved stability, immediate results, reduced healing time, and increased comfort.

However, it’s important to discuss the potential benefits and risks with your dentist to determine if All-on-4 is the right choice for you.

Dental Implant FAQ

Dental Implant Frequently Asked Questions

I have lots of missing teeth, am I suitable for Dental Implants?

A: Having multiple missing teeth can impact your lifestyle, eating habits, and even your speech. Dental Implants are made for replacing missing teeth and rebuilding your confidence. They are ideal for replacing an individual tooth, multiple missing teeth, or even full mouth rehabilitation for patients who have lost all their teeth.

A: Implant dentures are dentures that are held in place by implants in the mouth. If you have loose or unstable dentures already this could be the solution for you. Implant dentures can be secured in the jaw by using as little as two implants.

A: Implant bridges are a fixed solution to replace missing teeth. They are used to replace a few missing teeth or even a full mouth of missing teeth. They provide great cosmetic results.

A: Many people believe that dental implants are painful. However, at SmileBox Dental we want your experience to be pain-free and as comfortable as possible. We use local anaesthetic for your treatment, this ensures you feel no pain throughout.

A: Dental Implants are the gold standard of dentistry, they are designed to last between 20-30 years before needing replacement.

A: Yes, it is possible to have a dental implant done in one day. There are two main approaches to same-day dental implants:

  1. Immediate Implant Placements: A dental implant can be placed immediately after a tooth extraction this approach is known as “immediate implant placement.” The tooth will be removed then immediately insert the dental implant into the same socket. However, not all cases are suitable for immediate implant placement, and the oral surgeon will assess your specific situation to determine if this option is viable.
  2. All-on-4, All-on-6, Full Mouth Rehabilitation or Teeth-in-a-Day: This technique involves placing four (or 6) dental implants in a single arch (upper or lower) to support a full set of teeth (either a fixed bridge or denture) all in one day. This approach is often used for patients who are missing all or most of their teeth and want a quick and efficient solution.

It’s important to note that not everyone is a candidate for same-day dental implants. 

Your oral health, the condition of your jawbone, and other factors will determine whether this option is suitable for you. 

Our Implantologists will need to complete a comprehensive consultation to assess your specific needs and to see whether you are suitable for same-day dental implants.

A: All-on-4 is a type of implant surgery that is used to maximise the use of available bone. It is a perfect treatment for full mouth rehabilitation/reconstruction using just 4 dental implants placed into the jawbone, they are placed at specific angles which provides a secure foundation for a custom-made bridge or denture. Before the surgery, the Doctor will take X-rays, photos, and scans of your mouth intra-orally and extra-orally. This is to assess the condition of the teeth, gums, bone, and surrounding soft tissues.  After this, four implants are placed into the jaw bone, then bridges are attached to the implants. This is an immediate fixed solution to missing teeth.

A: All-on-6 dental implant treatment is a specialised procedure that involves the placement of six dental implants to support a full arch of replacement teeth. The procedure is similar to the All-on-4 dental implant treatment, but with the placement of two additional dental implants for extra support and stability.

During the All-on-6 dental implant procedure, the dentist will place six dental implants in strategic locations in the jawbone. These implants will serve as the foundation for a custom-made bridge or denture that will be attached to the implants to restore the patient’s missing teeth.

The All-on-6 procedure typically requires two or three appointments over the course of several months. The first appointment involves a thorough examination and consultation to determine the patient’s eligibility for the procedure. During the second appointment, the dental implants are placed in the jawbone under local anesthesia or IV sedation. After the implants are placed, there will be a healing period of several months to allow the implants to fuse with the jawbone. During this time, patients may wear temporary dentures or bridges. The final appointment involves the attachment of the permanent bridge or denture to the implants.
