Dental Implants

    Whether you have lost multiple teeth, or just one, we understand how hard it can be when you’re no longer able to eat, talk or smile like you once could. If you are looking for a permanent solution that looks and feels as natural as a real tooth, dental implants may be the treatment for you. 

    What is a dental implant?

    Dental implants are titanium screws that are surgically placed into the jawbone underneath your gums. A crown can then be placed on the implant.

    As implants are fused to the jawbone, they are very stable and can feel almost identical to natural teeth.

    How can dental implants help?

    Missing teeth can cause many problems in your day-to-day life. You may find yourself unable to eat or speak comfortably and may feel self-conscious about the gap in your smile. A loss of teeth also has serious consequences for your facial structure as your other teeth could shift or move in undesirable ways.  

    Without teeth, you may also experience loss of bone in your jaw, which could cause your facial profile to change. Placing an implant can help prevent or resolve all of these issues, helping you regain a happy and healthy smile. 

    How are dental implants placed?

    Local anaesthesia will first be given, and a metal implant will be placed under the gums and within the bone in a painless procedure. 

    After placing the implant, it will take 3 months for the implant to be fused with the bone. After this, an artificial tooth will be fabricated and fitted onto the implant. 

    What is bone grafting?

    Bone grafting aims to fill an area where the bone is inadequate to help provide greater structural stability. Your dentist may advise that you undergo bone graft surgery should your jawbone be too thin or soft to support an implant. If the bone cannot support the implant, the implant may eventually get infected and dislodge.  

    There are two main types of bone grafting procedures: Sinus lifts and ridge augmentation. 

    Pain Free Dentistry

    For many, dental procedures have always been associated with pain. Pain is one of the main reasons why many patients avoid going to the dentist. At Advanced Dental, our dental experts are equipped to provide a pain-free experience with various anaesthetic options. 

    • Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas)
      Nitrous oxide is administered through a custom nosepiece to produce a calming effect, reducing fear and anxiety, enabling patients to better tolerate injections or other potentially uncomfortable procedures. The effects wear off almost instantly once the procedure is done.
       
    • Local Anaesthesia 
      Local anaesthetic is administered via an injectable to impart a numbing effect that lasts for up to 60 minutes. It is injected into the part of the mouth that requires treatment. Patients won't experience any sedation or altered consciousness from local anaesthesia.
       
    • IV Sedation
      For procedures longer or more complicated procedures, IV (Intra-venous) sedation is used to induce a state of deeper relaxation. It is carried out by a certified anaesthetist who will monitor the patient throughout the duration of the procedure. 
       
    • General Anaesthesia 
      General anaesthesia is administered via an IV drip and it affects the entire body and produces a state of unconsciousness. This is used for lengthy, extensive oral surgeries that might cause more pain than local anaesthesia can address.
