Dental implants are a used to permanently replace damaged or missing teeth. They have a small metal screw that is surgically placed into the jawbone to act like an artificial tooth root and the restoration (either a 'crown' or 'bridge' is placed on top. At Queensway we have a range of dental implant solutions made right here in our dental laboratory for a precise and natural fit.
Are dental implants
right for me?
Deciding to have dental implants is a big and often life-changing decision. Whether you have one or a number of missing/failing teeth, dental implants could be the right option for you. Your suitability will be determined by the dentist in your clinical assessment.
Dental Implant Options
This involves placing a single dental implant in the mouth before a healing period of between six weeks to six months before the final restoration is fitted. During this period you will have a temporary tooth to fill the gap. In some cases the healing period is not needed, but this will be advised by your dentist.
An implant-supported bridge is similar to a regular dental bridge, but is supported by implants and not by natural teeth. In most cases, when an implant-supported bridge is used, two dental implants can support a connected crown. We have the technology and expertise to digitally plan the implant location and angulation before placement to achieve the best possible end result.
Mini-dental implants have the same structure as regular implants, but are slightly smaller in form and therefore a less invasive procedure. The components of mini-implants have two parts, a titanium post with a ball on the end and a socket with a rubber O-ring that attaches the tooth to the post. What's more, if you currently wear a denture, we might be able to work with this to further save on costs.
All-on-4® (Same day teeth)
This involves placing several dental implants across the jaw and then fixing a temporary bridge on the same day, which is left to integrate into the jaw for 3-6 months before a final bridge is constructed. This is not suitable for everyone, but offers a solution for people with no or very few natural teeth remaining.
All-on-4® treatment is a long-lasting solution for replacing loose, rotten, missing or failing teeth with a full set of dental implants in one day. Yes that's correct, patients arrive in the morning, and leave in the afternoon with a brand new smile and their confidence restored.
You might also hear All-on-4® treatment referred to as same-day smile, teeth in a day and full mouth dental implants.
The technique uses four or six dental implants to replace a whole arch of missing teeth and replaced with a temporary bridge - all in the same day. After a healing period of 3-6 months, a final bridge is then fitted. Different material options are available and we will discuss the pro's and con's of each at the clinical assessment so you can make an informed decision of what would be best for you.
Dental implants are a popular option because they:
- Help prevent bone loss
- Restore full functionality of your mouth
- Help you return to a normal diet
- Can be used in place of dentures
- Prevent sagging or hollow cheeks
- Are safe and comfortable
