Dental Implants

Looking for a way to improve your smile? Dental implants give you function back and look and feel like your own teeth.

Dental implants are an excellent option for replacing one or more lost teeth. They're made to look and feel as close to your natural teeth as possible.

Implants will also help improve your speech, make it easier to eat, and improve your overall oral health. They’re durable, convenient and comfortable and can help boost your confidence.

What is it?

Dental implants are a replacement root with a crown placed on top. Implants are used to replace one or more teeth. They are also used to hold dentures in place.

Both the front and back teeth are suitable for implants. Front teeth influence your appearance, to give you a new look. Your back teeth are less important for your appearance, but their mechanical function is important. Back teeth implants are designed accordingly.

Getting a dental implant is a two-step process. The first step is the implant placement and the second step is the implant restoration.

Implant Placement

The titanium or alloy implant is surgically placed and left to fuse with the jawbone. Very few dentists have the training and experience to carry out this complicated procedure. In most cases, these dentists also carry out the second step.

Implant Restoration

The replica tooth, crown or denture is fitted on top of the fused implant. Most dentists can carry out this procedure.

At Lumino Auckland Central we offer TeethXpress implants with our experienced implant dentist, Adrian Tan. TeethXpress implants are a cost-effective, advanced technique, where a whole arch of teeth is supported by four implants.

This modern treatment concept can be used in either the upper and/or lower jaw to support immediate, fixed natural looking and functioning replacement teeth. Since fewer implants are used compared to other methods, it allows for simpler cleaning while still delivering the best result.

Have questions?

The price of getting a dental implant differs depending on your situation and the condition of their teeth. Your dentist or specialist will let you know the cost of the treatment when you go in for your consultation visit.

You shouldn’t feel any pain during the implant procedure. You will likely be sedated during the procedure or given local anaesthetic so you won’t feel any pain. At the consultation your dentist or specialist will talk you through the procedure and any concerns you might have. You may experience minor discomfort for a few days following the procedure.

The length of time that your dental implants will last depends on how well you look after your oral health. We recommend going for regular dentist appointments as well as hygiene visits to take the best care of your implants. If you take good care of your implants they should last for years to come.

The main difference between implants and dentures is that dental implants are fixed permanently, while dentures are removable. Implants are more permanent and can also be used to secure a denture in place. Dentures are removable but can be made semi-permanent using an implant.
