Bexley Dental Explains the Methods for Full Mouth Dental Implants in Sydney
Bexley Dental, a dental office based in Bexley, NSW, Australia, has explained how they provide full teeth replacement in Sydney by using dental implants. It is important to note that a dental implant requires the placement of a titanium screw in the jawbone, after which a crown that is very similar to the lost tooth is attached. However, when a full mouth arch of teeth has to be replaced, there is no need to place an implant for each missing tooth. Instead, groups of missing teeth can be replaced with a bridgework that is then supported a certain number of implants.
Zainab Al, a representative for Bexley Dental, says, “Dr Theo Spyrakis has spent the last 20 years dedicating his expertise to dental implants and full teeth replacement, so, if you are considering a full set of teeth implants, then you’ll certainly be in safe hands. We have a team of experienced dentists, hygienists and dental nurses who are all experts in their fields all while putting patients at ease. All of our full arch dental implant procedures are led by Dr Spyrakis, and his continued passion and enthusiasm for the field of implantology ensures we offer the very best treatment to our patients.”
When getting full mouth dental implants Sydney patients can either have it the conventional way of using 8 or more dental implants to support the bridges. This process may take a long time as it will take three to six months for the replacement of a full mouth arch of teeth.
A better method that is offered at Bexley Dental is the All on 4 method, which only requires four implants to support a full arch of teeth. This is made possible by positioning the implants at an angle of 45 degrees, which allows the implants to avoid those areas of the jawbone that have lower bone density, thus retaining strength. Because only four dental implants are needed, the surgery that is required is less invasive and it will heal faster and patients need not wait for months for the implants to fuse with the jawbone. The result is that the All on 4 technique is much faster to complete, usually only requiring 24 hours to complete.
Bexley Dental provides a full-service dental practice but Dr Spyrakis devotes a significant amount of his time to the All on 4 treatment, allowing him to do more than 550 All on 4 and single dental implant procedures each year. The primary benefit from All on 4 dental implants is that a patient can have a replacement of all the missing teeth in just 24 hours compared to the three to six months it would take for the conventional dental implant method to be completed. With this, patients can begin smiling again, stop being self-conscious every time they talk, eat all of their favorite foods just like when they had natural teeth, without being concerned about the possibility of dislodged dentures.
All on 4 implants are suitable for any person who has missing teeth and his or her daily life is significantly affected. It is for those who have already tried wearing dentures but are fed up with the discomfort, dentures not fitting properly, and dentures flying out while they are talking. And it is also for people who were unable to have the conventional implants because of decreased bone density in their jawbone due to gum disease or tooth loss. However, there are concerns when the patient has certain medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, periodontal disease, osteoporosis or lack of jawbone, smoking, and uncontrolled diabetes. It is advisable to consult with a dental implant expert if a person has these conditions.
