Tooth implants are the best option for a strong and natural looking tooth replacement

Dental implants are revolutionary for your oral health. They are the perfect solution for damaged or missing teeth. With strong and long lasting dental implants, you no longer have to forego your favourite food on account of your teeth!

Dental implants do away with the drawbacks of dentures and bridge placements. They do a very good job of imitating your natural teeth in appearance and function, enabling you to go about life as before. Tooth implant surgery has a success rate of about 98% and with good oral hygiene practices, these can last for up to 25 years. So this is definitely a long-term solution for better oral health.

Which of the tooth replacement options is right for you?

There are slightly different procedures that dentists use for a single missing tooth and multiple missing teeth. Your situation will affect which option is best for you.

Single Tooth Implants

The dental implant procedure for a single tooth replacement is fairly straightforward, and a single tooth dental implant is surgically inserted in the gap left behind by the missing tooth. With this procedure, the teeth that lie on either side of the missing tooth are left intact. This is where dental implant procedures differ from bridge placement. More often than not, the extraction of the damaged tooth (if there is still one) and the implant placement can be done in the same appointment.

Multiple Tooth Implants

Dental implants are a popular solution for replacing multiple missing teeth as well. As we’ve said earlier, a bridge can sometimes compromise the health of adjacent teeth. You do not necessarily need one implant per missing tooth, depending on the individual case a single implant can be sufficient to support two replacement teeth. The procedure for multiple tooth implant placement is similar to the previous, but if there are three or four teeth missing, usually only two implants are needed.

Immediate Tooth Replacement

When a tooth is beyond saving and needs to be removed you can be assured that you do not have to go about your day without your teeth.

With proper planning the tooth can be gently removed, and a replacement can be fabricated, ready for immediate replacement on the day. This may be a denture, bridge or even an implant placement with same day crown.

At Dental Artistry we can offer you the full range of treatment options for immediate tooth replacement.

Pricing for dental implants is not necessarily as straightforward as settling on a tooth implant cost per tooth in NZ. It really depends on the individual case and what needs to be done for it. Some cases need an extraction to be performed as well and for others, bone grafting may be required. For straightforward dental implant procedures, the price range is as follows:

  • Single dental implant costs range from NZ$5000 to NZ$8000
  • Multiple dental implants could cost between NZ$11,000 and N$13,000.
  • Implant procedures that involve the entire upper jaw or entire lower jaw is around NZ$18,000 to NZ$30,000. This procedure sees the most variations in terms of costs.
  • For an All-On-Four dental implant procedure (for all teeth above and below), it will be approximately twice the amount it is for a full upper or full lower jaw.

How painful is the procedure?2023-03-13T22:36:36+13:00

The actual procedure itself is not painful as there will be full local anaesthetic. After the procedure, you will be advised to take over-the-counter pain relief. Most people report mild discomfort but if you follow post-surgery care, don’t smoke and stick to soft foods, the recovery should be quick.

How long do dental implants last?2023-08-07T17:10:11+12:00

In general, dental implants have a success rate of 98%. Once placed and healed, you need to ensure you continue basic oral care and then they can last up to 25 years. This is influenced by how well you look after them. Flossing and brushing daily, having regular dentist visits, and avoiding biting on pens or using your teeth as an opening device will all help to increase their life span.
