Bank Street Dental Whangarei

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.

All-on-4® Implants

At Lumino Bank Street Whangarei we offer a All-on-4® service with our experienced implant dentists. All-on-4®​ treatment is 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.

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.
