Dental Implants

If you’re missing teeth, you’ve probably imagined what your smile would look like if it were fully restored and healthy again. At Smile Creation, our team is qualified to provide dental implants that will give you back your self-confidence.

Whether you have a single missing tooth, want to support dentures on implants or need all teeth replaced, this is the most advanced option available today.

At Smile Creation we use DIO implants. DIO implants are a total dental implant system used in over 70 countries across the world. DIO implants are proud to offer patients a comprehensive range of scientific-based and clinically tested solutions.

In the simplest terms, a dental implant is placed in your jaw. After a healing period has passed, a crown, bridge or denture can be attached to the implant for a secure feel. There are many advantages to them:

  • Completely natural appearance
  • Implants have a high success rate
  • You can eat and chew foods just like normal
  • Long-lasting and durable

  • Replace a single or multiple missing tooth
  • Helps maintain bone mass to prevent future tooth loss

The first step to receive dental implants at our practice is to book in for a consultation with Dr Sanjay and our team. We will then assess your mouth and determine whether you’re a good candidate for dental implants.

Following your consultation and providing everything goes smoothly, you can book in your procedure where we will complete the oral surgery.

During your implant procedure, we will ensure you’re feeling relaxed and comfortable. Dr Sanjay and the Smile Creation team take a lot of care in ensuring you have a positive experience with us. We will talk you through the procedure and administer a local anaesthetic, so your treatment is as comfortable as possible.

Following your oral surgery, you will walk away with an implant and allow your body to heal and accept the dental implant like a normal tooth. It can take a few months for the mouth to fully accept the dental implant and have the jaw heal around it. You may have regular checkup appointments to ensure it is healing as it should be.

The final stage is coming in after a few months to have your crown or bridge placed over the implant. This occurs once the jawbone completely recovers after a few months. You will have full functionality just like a normal tooth and a restored smile.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I care for my implant at home?

You will be able to care for it just like the rest of your teeth. It’s important to maintain good oral hygiene to protect the rest of your teeth and your gums as well! We also encourage you to come in for six-monthly checkups and cleans.

How long does the procedure take?

The implant procedure takes roughly one hour. Your follow up appointments typically only go for around 15-30 minutes.

How much do implants cost?

The cost depends on what teeth, how many teeth and also whether you will have a crown or bridge attached to it as well. The good news is, Smile Creation offer flexible, interest-free payment plans so you can have your treatment now and pay later.
