Choose What’s Best For Your Smile

As experts providing dental implants in Auckland, we’ll give you the low-down on three unique dental implant surgery treatments that can change your life for the better.

Implant Crowns

Missing teeth can be unsightly and cause problems with bite alignment and oral health. Fortunately, an implant crown can restore your smile and maintain your bite and alignment, allowing you to speak and eat with ease. This option is an excellent solution for replacing a single missing tooth, as it attaches to the implant, acting as the root of the missing tooth to fill the gap and show a crown, the visible part of the tooth.

Implant crowns look and function like natural teeth and we can match their colour to your other teeth. They can be made of porcelain, ceramic, gold or a combination of these materials. With an implant crown, you can have an instant smile that looks and feels natural.

Implant Bridges

Missing teeth, whether caused by injury or poor oral health, can spoil the aesthetics of your smile and cause issues with bite alignment and speaking and chewing properly. At our clinic, we offer a dental bridge solution to bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. This device acts as an abutment to support the implant, which is then connected to the surrounding remaining teeth to form one bridge piece that holds the implants in place.

For replacing a single tooth, the implant works in the same way as regular dental bridges but it is supported by implants into the jaw rather than being attached to the surrounding remaining teeth. With this solution, you can restore your smile and improve your bite and alignment, giving you the ability to chew and speak with ease.

New Teeth on 4 Dental Implants

At McIntosh Dental, we provide a permanent solution to removable dentures with the New Teeth on 4 Dental Implants procedure. Our experienced dentists have been placing dental implants since 1985 and offer a full-mouth all-teeth replacement option for patients who wear dentures and are facing the possibility of losing their teeth.

By placing four dental implants in a single jawline, a new set of teeth can be permanently attached to act as tooth roots. The result is natural looking and feeling teeth that allow you to eat and chew as you would with your original teeth. Practising good oral hygiene daily is crucial for the long term success of your dental implants.

One dental implant gives you a world full of good. Find out How placing one type of implant changed our Clients’ Lives…

“I hated having a plate. It felt unnatural, and even with the adhesive, it did not feel secure. It also had to be removed and soaked at night – especially inconvenient when travelling. New Teeth On 4 dental implants amounted to a comprehensive solution and presented as superior new technology.

I had no concerns as I was fully informed about the process. The implants are a vast improvement on the plate.

I would recommend this treatment to others and recommend Dr Alex McIntosh and his team to others contemplating having this treatment.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are an excellent solution for replacing missing or damaged teeth with artificial teeth that closely resemble natural ones in appearance, sensation and function. These implants are secured to the jawbone with titanium screw-like posts, providing a comfortable and effective alternative to ill fitting dentures or bridgework. Before implant placement, the condition of the jawbone is thoroughly examined and the implants are carefully inserted or drilled into the jawbone. The main advantages of implants include replacing missing teeth and providing sturdy support for new teeth, which involves the bone healing tightly around the implant.

What are dental implants made of?

Dental implants are typically made of a biocompatible material called titanium. This material is highly durable, lightweight and resistant to corrosion, making it an ideal choice for dental implants. The implant itself is a small, screw-shaped post that is inserted into the jawbone to serve as the root of the artificial tooth. Once the implant is placed, a dental crown or bridge is attached to the top to replace the missing tooth or teeth. In some cases, zirconia or ceramic materials may also be used for dental implants, especially for those with metal allergies or a preference for a more natural looking restoration. We can help determine the best material for your specific needs and preferences.

Who should get dental implants?

Dental implants are a great option for people who have lost one or more teeth due to injury, decay or other dental issues. If you have good oral health and sufficient jawbone density, you may be a good candidate for dental implants. You should be committed to maintaining good oral hygiene and regular dental checkups to ensure the long term success of your implant. People with certain medical conditions, such as uncontrolled diabetes or cancer, may not be good candidates for dental implants. We can evaluate your individual situation and help determine if dental implants are the right choice for you.

Where are dental implants done and how do you manage anxiety?

At McIntosh Dental, we understand that the dentist’s chair can be an intimidating place for many people. However, dental implant surgery can be safely performed in the comfort of our clinic. To make the experience more pleasant for those who suffer from dental anxiety, we offer Drift Away Anxiety Management. This innovative approach provides a safe and non-invasive way to keep patients relaxed during the procedure by redirecting their focus and calming their senses. We provide a warm, soft blanket and noise-cancelling headphones and patients can even choose a movie from our extensive collection to watch during the procedure. With our anxiety management plan, patients can sit back, relax and feel more comfortable throughout the entire process of getting dental implants in Auckland.

Are dental implants expensive?

We believe that replacing missing teeth with dental implants is a valuable investment that can improve your quality of life. We understand that paying for dental implants can be a concern for some patients, which is why we offer a range of flexible payment and installment options that allow you to attain the full restoration of your smile without sacrificing your lifestyle. With our flexible payment plans, you can achieve a beautiful and healthy smile without breaking the bank.

Are dental implants safe?

Our team of Auckland dentists has been performing dental implant procedures for over 30 years with a high success rate. For patients in good health, there is minimal risk of major complications. Research has shown that dental implants have a high success rate, with 90 to 95% still in good condition after ten years and a success rate of 95-98% over a period of 40-50 years, according to some studies.

It is essential to have good dental health before undergoing the procedure, particularly for an artificial tooth root operation. Patients with severe periodontal disease will need to manage their condition before becoming eligible for a tooth implant in Auckland.
