REVIVING YOUR SMILE

Sometimes we lose teeth, either from disease or accidents. Fortunately, with dental implants we can revert that. Implants are more than just artificial roots and teeth, it’s a second chance to replace vital tooth structure, which are so important to eat, speak, preserve bone and provide aesthetics.

 

CREATING A BRIDGE

With Implants we can replace 1 or more teeth, or even an entire mouth. They are also very useful to substantially increase stability of dentures. For example, with as little as 2 implants, we can stabilise and improve retention on a full lower denture.

 

DIGITAL MAGIC

Also with the help of digital technology, in some situations, we can deliver a temporary Implant Crown, or Full Arch Prosthesis in as little as 24 hours from surgery. That ensures you are not toothless during any stage of your treatment. If an immediate Implant crown is not possible, we will discuss other temporary solutions with you.

 

I need an implant, what should I expect?

Dental  Implants are not created equal, as a matter of fact there are various implant brands, techniques and considerations to be taken into account. That is why planning them is just as important as placing them. At Proud Smile, the treatment plan is focused on the best final aesthetic and functional outcome for the tooth or teeth to be replaced. That is why we use our expertise in Digital Dentistry to plan ahead, making sure that the final implant tooth (crown) is only a perfect consequence of all the right decisions taken before.

1. Planning makes Perfect

With the advance in digital technology, planning an implant surgery has never been more precise and straight forward. By combining a 3D CT x-ray of your mouth with digital scans of your teeth, we use our advanced software to place the implant completely virtually for a more predictable outcome. Planning from end to beginning, allows for better final aesthetic results and function, as well as substantially reducing trauma at the time of surgery.

2. From Virtual to Real

Now the virtual becomes real. This is carried out by utilising a Surgical Guide, which is designed with our software and then milled or 3D printed to the exact requirements. 

This physical guide then becomes our reference for exact placement of the implants in your mouth, there’s no guess work and no surprises.

 

3. Implanted

We understand this is the least exciting part of the regaining process, which is why we make sure this step is as fast and straight forward as possible for you, and most importantly, pain free. With the Surgical Guide created from the planning stage, surgery times are cut in half, most of the time no incision is necessary, as we already know what’s underneath. Depending on the stability of the implant or implants placed, we can produce a temporary prothesis solution, which can be attached to the implants in less than 24 hours after surgery.

4. Teeth, Regained

This is the final step and often happens 3 to 6 months after the surgical placement of the implant. With the use of our digital technology, a scan is taken to produce a beautiful porcelain crown, no messy, uncomfortable moulds are required.  In the vast majority of cases, crowns are screw retained onto the implant, which means they are fully retrievable at any point should it ever need repair.

 

The placement of the crown involves a short 30 minute appointment and it’s also pain free, in some cases no local anaesthetic is even required.

Can anyone get implants?

There’s no short answer to this question. Each case is different and needs to be assessed with care, which is why we often cannot give definitive costings over the phone. However, with the advancement in types and sizes of implants, and auxiliary procedures, such as bone grafts and the all-on-four protocol, there’s a good chance we will be able to find a solution for you. Below are some of the procedures we can carry out, to be able to place implants even in areas with poor bone availability.

For the more complex cases requiring larger interventional procedures, we work in conjunction with dental specialists, such as oral surgeons and periodontists. These specialists can perform the surgical component and we can continue the case by providing the dental prosthesis. One of the main advantages of seeing a specialist, is that surgical procedure can be performed under General Anaesthetic at the hospital.

BONE, THE HOLY GRAIL FOR IMPLANTS

When we talk about implants, bone is the single most important factor for successful results. That is because implants actually “fuse” to the bone in a process called Osseointegration. So, if for any reason we find that we cannot place an implant due to lack of bone being available, we can perform a bone graft in an attempt to revert the situation. The name Bone Graft can generate anxiety, as it is often related to a very complex and painful procedure, but the reality is, that some grafting procedures can be as simple as placing a granular material inside an extraction socket, or into the sinus cavity to allow for new bone to “grow”. The decision if, or when a  bone graft is required, will usually be made at the early stages of planning, after examination of your x-rays. The treatment will be thoroughly explained and discussed with you at your consultation. So, if you think you can’t get implants because you may not have enough bone, you don’t have to worry. There are still options available to you.

 

SINUS LIFT

You’ll probably know what sinuses are if you’ve had sinusitis before. These are hollow spaces on our temple and on the sides of our nose. Our back teeth on the top jaw are often very close to the sinus cavity, which can make implants in this area more difficult, as room is limited by the floor of the sinus. When you lose back teeth and do not replace them, the sinus floor moves downwards leaving you with practically no bone left, it’s a process called bone resorption. The sinus lift procedure allows us to very delicately place bone graft material inside the sinus cavity, which allows for formation of new bone, that we can then use for implant placement. Depending on how much “lift” is required, this procedure maybe performed in our office under local anaesthesia, completely pain free. Complications such as sinus infection or rupture of the sinus lining can occur, but these are minimised with the correct technique and use of digital technology and x-rays, which will be explained to you during your consultation.
