All-on-Four® Dental Implants in Ramsgate
If you suffer from full or significant tooth loss, you may have considered tooth replacement options, including dentures—or maybe you already have dentures but long for a more stable solution.
Dr Saif Hayek, your dentist in Ramsgate, NSW, may have the answer you’ve been looking for. In our dental clinic, we have combined dental implant technology with prosthetics to give you a full and stable smile. With this merged approach, you never have to worry about slippage, adhesives or visiting your Ramsgate dentist for relines.
In fact, All-on-4 means no more dentures! Instead, we give you stable teeth that you can eat anything you like with; it means tasting food the same way you used to; it means having a confident smile, and it means restoring the shape of the mouth to provide a younger more vibrant look.
Implants Create a Solid Foundation for Your New Smile
A dental implant is a tooth replacement root made from strong titanium. Your dentist surgically places this root in your jaw. After a few months, the replacement root merges with your bone and becomes a permanent part of your oral structure. Your dentist then places a tooth crown to complete the process.
Dental implants are the only solution for full anatomical tooth replacement, making them more like natural teeth compared with other treatments. The replacement roots are strong and durable. With today’s modern technology, our dentist near Kogarah can typically place a dental implant post in thirty minutes or less.
All-on-4 Implant-Supported Dentures in Ramsgate
Many patients who wear dentures or who have significant tooth loss may think dental implants are out of reach. But we offer All-on-4. This technology means four dental implants can typically secure an entire arch of restoring teeth to your jaw, which is generally less expensive than an implant for each lost tooth. With this option, you do not have to live with loose prosthetics that slip and loosen over time.
The Benefits of Dental Implants
Besides restoring the entire anatomy of your missing tooth, dental implants may also stimulate your jawbone to remain viable—jawbone shrinkage is common in tooth loss.
All-on-4 also restores function, giving you the ability to indulge in healthy foods and smile and speak without concern for slippage. And we carefully craft your prosthetic to complement your facial structure. When you smile, your mates will see a beautiful smile and not artificial teeth.
Learning Whether You’re a Good Candidate for All-on-4
A careful evaluation of your oral structure is in order before making the decision. Dr Hayek will talk to you about your smile goals, collect a health history, and take x-rays before giving the all-clear.
If All-on-4 is a good option, we carefully plan your surgery using imaging to ensure precise implant placement. In some cases, pretreatments like bone grafting may be in order if you do not have sufficient or quality jawbone at the placement site.
Throughout the process, we will make sure the area is numb and that you are relaxed and comfortable. Most patients compare implant placement to far less invasive treatments.
