Dental Implants

Dental implants are titanium root replacements that crowns and bridges can be attached to. The process of bone healing (osseointegration) onto titanium was pioneered by Professor Bränemark in Sweden, in the 1960’s. These days most dental implant placement is considered relatively routine and predictable due to the advances in implant surface design and manufacturing.

Dr Jaclyn Wong performs all of the dental implant surgery at the Paltoglou Dental Centre using exclusively the implant company that was founded by Professor Bränemark, NobelBiocare.

Tooth replacements using dental implants can be:

  • single teeth
  • multiple teeth
  • implant retained overdenture
  • a full set of teeth using the AllOn4 technique

All surgery is meticulously planned using the latest in imaging software (Nobel Clinician) to analyse 3-Dimensional X-rays (Cone Beam CT scans) of the patient’s jaw. Nerves and vital structures can be noted prior to surgery and exact measurements taken to plan safe implant placement.

Once a dental implant has been placed into the bone it is common to have to wait a period of 3 to 6 months for the bone to heal on to the implant surface.

After this time the implanted titanium “root” can be restored with a crown or bridge by Dr George Paltoglou who has over 25 years experience in this field.

Struggling with loose dentures?

Dental implants can be used to help anchor a loose denture or replace them all together with fixed teeth (Allon4). The increased stabilisation and retention of the denture can greatly increase your confidence, chewing efficiency and most importantly your quality of life.
