Implant-Supported Dentures in Geelong

Do your dentures slipping around in your mouth?

Do you find it difficult to enjoy eating your favourite foods or speak? 

If so, an implant supported full denture may be the perfect solution for you!

Dentures Have Their Drawbacks

Dentures are prosthetic devices made of a combination of materials, including acrylic, nylon, porcelain, metal and resin. If you have a set of dentures, you will know that they act as a useful support for your missing teeth and the gums, and that they can do wonders for day to day confidence.

Restore Your Smile With Modern Advances In Technology

Do your dentures slip around in your mouth?

Do you find it difficult to enjoy eating your favourite foods or speak?

Do you want healthy teeth - even though you’re missing a few?

If so, an implant supported full denture may be the perfect solution for you.

However, dentures come with their own set of problems. They must be taken out at night and cleaned regularly, or else further complications might develop, such as cavities, stomatitis and infection. Dentures also vary in their comfort and stability, and it is not uncommon for people to develop ulcers as a result. Often this pain leads people to avoid certain foods, particularly those which require mastication (chewing), this can snowball into poor nutritional intake leading to other medical health issues and self-consciousness at social events.

Implant Supported Dentures

If your dentures are giving you grief, implant supported full dentures may be just what you need. Implant supports are made of titanium screws, and they have special attachments which lock into your new set of dentures. This allows the dentures to grip onto something other than your gums, meaning they are less likely to create trouble. Implant supported full dentures remove the need for pastes, gels, or adhesives to secure your dentures in place, as they provide far more support on their own. What’s more, the new set can be removed at night for cleaning just like a regular denture.

Why Should I Choose Implant Supported Full Dentures?

If you have a set of traditional dentures, you will know that they act as a useful support for your missing teeth and the gums, and that they can do wonders for day to day confidence.

However, dentures come with their own set of problems. They must be taken out at night and cleaned regularly, or else you may develop cavities, stomatitis and infection. Dentures also vary in their comfort and stability, causing ulcers down the road

Don’t let this be your reality: with implant supported full dentures, you can restore your smile and oral health. We encourage you to book your appointment at Dentists & Doctors to discuss your options.

What Can I Expect With Implant Supported Dentures?

The Implant Supported Dentures Process

Depending on your unique medical conditions and the operation you require, the entire process may take 3 to 12 months. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect:

1
Comprehensive Medical And Dental Assessment

Our dentists take 3D x-rays as well as scans and photos to assess your teeth, gums and jaw bone. If your jawbone is not strong enough to support the post, you may require bone grafting.

Healing time: Three-four months

2
Surgery To Place
Implant

A titanium screw (also known as a metal grade post or abutment) is attached to your jawbone and acts as a replacement for the root of your tooth. Over time, the implant is fused with the jawbone, and the gum is secured over the implant.

Healing time: Two weeks

3
Custom Porcelain
Tooth Is Placed

Once healing has taken place, the porcelain crown is attached to the implant post. You can now enjoy your beautiful, new smile!

Healing time: Up to three months

But that’s not the end of our professional relationship. Oral hygiene post-procedure is a must. You’ll be asked to attend follow-up appointments to keep on top of maintenance and to ensure appropriate home care is undertaken regularly.

No Judgement. No Pressure.

Don’t want to feel stressed out, anxious, or annoyed at the thought of visiting the dentist? That ends with Dentists & Doctors.

For our more anxious patients, we offer dental implant surgery under sedation or general anaesthetic. That way, you’ll be comfortable and confident throughout the procedure. Because you deserve safe, soothing and enjoyable care.

Not Your Ordinary Dental Studio…

Stress-free treatments in a judgement-free zone. That’s what visiting a doctor should be like - and that’s exactly what we offer at Dentists & Doctors. We enjoy challenging the status quo by delivering a comfortable and enjoyable dental experience - without compromising on results.

If you’re looking for a locally owned and operated clinic in Geelong that will treat you with the care and respect that you deserve, book an appointment today with our professional dentists.

Real Patients And Results

Learn More About All-On-4®

What is the All-On-4® dental implant treatment?

In an All-On-4® dental implant procedure, a patient’s set of upper and lower teeth are restored with only four implants. These implants provide the support required to place a set of permanent teeth.

How painful is the All-On-4® treatment?

The All-On-4® dental implants procedure usually requires the patient to be under general anaesthesia as it is a surgical procedure. However, when the anaesthesia wears off, the patient might experience discomfort such as swelling and minor aches for a few days.

Special painkiller medications can be prescribed to patients to alleviate pain.

Who is considered ideal for an All-On-4® surgery?

The All-On-4® treatment can be recommended for anyone that needs a permanent dental restoration for multiple sets of teeth.

The candidate is required to have healthy gums and bone mass to hold the implants. These may include patients that have endured tremendous tooth loss or who want a permanent, long-lasting solution to removable dentures.

For such patients, an All-On-4® treatment can help restore vital facial features, align jaw position and bite force, as well as enhance speech.

How long do the implants last compared to regular bridges?

With good dental hygiene, maintenance, and care, standard All-On-4® restorations can last indefinitely. However, this is very much dependant on the maintenance of the implants and prosthetics.

Can someone with less bone mass get an All-On-4®?

Since the All-On-4® implants are tilted within the jaw, the requirement for bone grafting is minimised. The positioning on both the lower and upper jaws is adjusted to ensure maximum functionality and to prevent any dental concerns like cavities from forming.

For this reason, it’s necessary for the dentist to analyse the bone structure to see if they are a fit for the procedure.

What happens during an All-On-4® surgery?

Initially, the dentist starts with an examination of the patient’s overall oral health to determine whether they are the right fit for the procedure. Once the patient qualifies, the dentist proceeds with the surgery.

During a standard All-On-4® procedure, the dentist fixes a set of four implants and provisional teeth on top for a period of 3 months as the gum and bones heal. After the surgery, the mouth is left to recover while the implants integrate firmly with the jawbone.

Following the recovery, the dentist creates the permanent teeth made of either zirconia, acrylic or ceramic. These are then fixed permanently over the frame resulting in a complete restoration of the patient’s teeth.

Can All-On-4® be done under sedation dentistry?

Patients can also opt for sleep dentistry as a part of their treatment to help manage their fear or anxiety.

Undergoing a treatment under sleep dentistry means the sedation is supervised by a medical professional who can monitor their condition till the procedure is complete. This is to ensure the overall safety and comfort of the patient.

Is it necessary to remove both sets of teeth for the All-On-4® treatment?

It’s not usually necessary to remove both upper and lower arches in an All-On-4® treatment if one of them are in good shape. However, if both arches are badly damaged, it’s advisable to get them both replaced in a single treatment. This helps reduce cost of the whole treatment.

How long does it take to complete a single treatment?

The completion time for an All-On-4® treatment can vary on certain factors. Ideally, the patient can expect to get a full restoration of their implants within 24 hours with their temporary teeth.

Within the said time period, the patient will have their All-On-4® teeth permanently fitted into the implants. The treatment duration might, however, increase if the patient requires any add-ons to be done.

Are strong bones necessary to get an All-On-4® implant?

Compared to regular implants where having a firm jawbone is necessary, All-On-4® implants can be placed strategically to manage a single dental arch. This means a dentist can find an ideal foundation in the jawbone to insert the All-On-4® implants.

Dentist & Doctors is by far the best in dentistry in our area. They are amazing at dealing with any problem you may have and have given myself and my family the best dentist care we have ever received. Dentist and Doctors have the most amazing staff to help with any dental procedures you could ever need. They are very reasonably priced and really care for all of their patients. We have been attending Dentist and Doctors for several years now and have changed my opinion about Dentists altogether. I was always ashamed to smile but now that has completely changed. Asef and all of his staff offer the very best in quality service. Please don’t hesitate for the latest technology in dental care and the friendliest atmosphere you could ever imagine. Thankyou to Asef and all of his team as they are by far the best Dentist to have. Quality and kindness always. Regards JO PRATT & FAMILY.😁

Dr Matt and Dr Asef make you feel very welcome to their Practice. Nothing is too much bother for them and they are more than happy to explain the procedures in detail and answer any questions you may have. I had 4 – 3 hour sessions to do the prep work and fit crowns to my very worn out teeth. I was made to feel very comfortable during those sessions with staged breaks along the way. The final results are amazing. My Good Wife Bon is very pleased with the end result too. Happy Wife, Happy Life! I highly recommend Dentists and Doctors Geelong to everyone for their ongoing Dental Support. The front desk Team are also very helpful and supportive. Nothing is too much bother for them in finding suitable appointment times and answering any billing enquires you may have. Thank you Matt, Anwar, the Dental Nurses and your lovely Support Team. Best wishes for a great ongoing future here in Geelong.

Amazing service from Dr Pascale at the dentist. My son, who has severe anxiety, was made to feel very calm during a procedure. He was always told what was happening and always given a chance to stop. The ladies at the front desk have always been helpful and it doesn’t smell like a dentist! I recommend this place to those that have anxious children or are anxious themselves.
