In Depth

Dental Implants have caused a revolutionary change in dentistry.  Implants are man-made replacements for missing teeth and can be used instead of bridgework.  They are positioned into the bone of the jaw and behave exactly like roots and even bond naturally with the jawbone.  This action is known as osseointegration.  A porcelain crown is then fitted on top to match with the rest of your smile.

Implants are a long-lasting solution, often for life. 

Is this procedure painful?

Placing an implant is a very gentle procedure and is usually done with local anaesthetic, much like when having a filling.

After dental implant placement most patients experience minor discomfort after the anaesthesia has worn off and this is usually controlled by simple painkillers.  The level of discomfort is quite different from patient to patient, but it's unusual to have significant problems.

What about Missing Teeth?

Missing teeth can be replaced using implants and the latest aesthetic bridgework and dentures.

Sunny Smiles will endeavour to provide you with the treatment which is most appropriate for your needs.

What are Mini Implants?

Our Mini Implant System consists of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture, The head of the implant is shaped like a ball and the retaining fixture acts like a socket that contains a rubber O-ring. The O-ring snaps over the ball when the denture is seated and holds the denture at a predetermined leve of force. When seated, the denture gently rests on the gum tissue. The implant fixtures allow for micro-mobility while withstanding natural lifting forces. The most effective use of this unique dental product is stabilization of a lower denture. There are approximately 50,000,000 people in the United States who are "edentulous" (literally meaning lacking teeth) who struggle daily with prosthetic devices. A majority suffer a great deal of discomfort as a result of lose or ill-fitting dentures. Many denture wearers simply withdraw from any type of social engagement as a result of being compelled to wear them. Moreover, it's not uncommon for family members to complain about a denture wearer's disagreeable breath as a result of food being trapped and decaying under their denture prosthesis. Successful placement of the Mini Dental Implant addresses and solves all of these social and practical problems. Denture patients all over the world have experienced relief from loos or ill-fitting dentures from doctors who are trained to place the MDI. Uniquely, the MDI can be utilized to stablilize a denture in a couple of hours by a trained doctor, with the patient leaving the clinic with a stabilized prosthesis



A dental implant is a metal rod that is placed in the jawbone to hold a false tooth in place.

Over several months, the bone fuses with the metal implant. A small attachment is left protruding through the gum, and dentures or bridges can be screwed or clipped onto this attachment.

There are a number of reasons why you may choose to have implants.

Implants are an alternative to conventional bridges and partial dentures. 

Loose Dentures

Implants are not appropriate for everyone.  You need to be in good general health, have healthy gums and your jawbone must be thick enough for the implant.  There are, however, surgical procedures to increase the amount of bone in your jaw.  Implants are more likely to be successful if you don't smoke.  Our dentist will advise you whether implants are a suitable treatment for you. 

What are the alternatives?

You may choose to accept the space where a tooth is missing and do nothing.  The alternatives to implants are dentures or bridges..

What is involved?

Our dentists are qualified to perform your dental implant surgery.

You may need to have an X-ray or a CT scan so that the dentist can check the thickness of your jawbone and the position of other structures in your mouth.  A CT scan uses X-rays to build up a three-dimensional picture of your teeth and mouth.

Our dentist may place the implant into the tooth socket directly after your tooth has been taken out and replace the root of the natural tooth straight away.  Alternatively the implant can be placed into the jawbone long after the tooth has been removed and the socket has healed.

Sometimes our dentist can attach artificial teeth on the same day you have the implant.  Usually, however, you will need to wait for between three and six months.

After the procedure

After your mouth has healed, we will then fit your artificial teeth onto the implant.  The teeth may be fixed permanently or be attached in a way that allows you remove them for cleaning. 

Deciding on treatment

Dental implants have a high success rate.  The surgery is commonly performed and is generally safe.  However, in order to make an informed decision and give your consent, you need to be aware of the possible side-effects and the risk of complications of this procedure.
