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