Dental implants are a long-lasting solution to regain confidence in your smile.
All On 4 Implants
Dental implants are a natural-looking solution to replace one or more teeth. Whether you’ve been dealing with a smile that make you unhappy or you have recently experienced tooth loss, implants can help you regain confidence and health.
Get in touch today with your dentist at the Dental Health Centre to learn more about single dental implants and all four alternatives.
Dental implants allow you to replace missing, failing, or severely damaged teeth that may be negatively affecting your speech, social life, or confidence. Dental implants are made of two components:
- A titanium screw placed into the jawbone
- A false tooth – such as a crown or denture – fitted on top of the screw
Once in place, the dental implant will have a natural look and feel, so much so that it is usually impossible to distinguish it from your other natural teeth.
Depending on your teeth structure, the severity of any damage, and the number of teeth to be replaced, you and your dentist will discuss several implant options, such as:
- Single implants
- Multiple or all on 4 implants
- Implant retained dentures and bridges
- Smile in a day alternatives
The dental implant fitting procedure happens over two appointments. During the first visit, your dentist will fit the implant screw into the jawbone. It can then take between four and eight months for the bone to fuse around it and hold it in place. Once the implant settles, your dentist will then fit a permanent crown or denture over the implant.
Here at the Dental Health Centre, we have an in-house specialised lab that allows us to craft tailor-made implants and crowns within short timeframes and streamline the revision process. Get in touch today to discover our various implant options.
