At Hills Dental Studio in Johannesburg South Africa, our dental professionals offer a range of dental implant options that can restore your smile’s appearance, functionality, and health. 

With our state-of-the-art equipment and experienced team, we make the dental implant procedure comfortable, safe, and effective for all our patients.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are implant treatments that are artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone to support a replacement tooth or bridge. 

They are made of biocompatible materials such as titanium that fuse with the jawbone over time, creating a sturdy foundation for the replacement tooth.

 Dental implants offer several advantages over other tooth replacement options, including their natural appearance, durability, comfort, and ability to preserve bone structure and prevent further tooth loss.

The Dental Implant Procedures

At Hills Dental Studio, we offer a comprehensive dental implant procedure that involves multiple stages, including consultation, treatment planning, surgery, healing, and restoration. 

During the initial consultation, our dental professionals will assess your oral health, discuss your dental goals and preferences, and recommend the best dental implant option for you. 

We’ll create a personalized treatment plan that takes into account factors such as the number and location of missing teeth, the condition of your jawbone, and your overall health.

The surgery itself involves the placement of the implant into the jaw bone, which is done under local anesthesia or conscious sedation. Our dental professionals use advanced equipment and techniques to ensure precise and minimally invasive implant placement. 

After the surgery, you’ll need to allow time for the implant to fuse with the jaw bone, a process known as osseointegration, which can take several months. 

Once the implant has fully integrated, we’ll place an abutment and crown on top of it to create a natural-looking and functional replacement tooth.

After care for a dental implant

Aftercare is crucial for ensuring the success and longevity of your dental implants. Here are some tips on how to take care of your dental implants after the procedure:

  1. Maintain good oral hygiene: Brush your teeth twice a day with a soft-bristled toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste. Floss at least once a day to remove any food particles and plaque from between your teeth and around the implant.
  2. Avoid hard and sticky foods: During the first few weeks after the procedure, avoid hard or crunchy foods that could put pressure on the implant or dislodge it. Also, avoid sticky or chewy foods that could get stuck in between your teeth.
  3. Don’t smoke: Smoking can delay the healing process and increase the risk of implant failure. If you smoke, try to quit or at least cut down as much as possible.
  4. Attend follow-up appointments: Your dentist will schedule follow-up appointments to monitor the healing process and check the implant’s stability. Make sure to attend these appointments and follow any instructions given by your dentist.
  5. Wear a mouth guard: If you play sports or grind your teeth at night, wearing a mouth guard can protect your implant from damage.
  6. Report any issues: If you experience any pain, swelling, or discomfort around the implant, or if the implant feels loose or wobbly, contact your dentist immediately.

By following these aftercare tips and maintaining good oral hygiene, you can ensure the long-term success of your dental implant and enjoy a beautiful and functional smile for years to come.

Types of Dental Implants

At Hills Dental Studio, we offer several types of dental implants to suit different needs and preferences. Our options include:

  1. Endosteal Implants: These are the most common type of dental implant and are placed directly into the jawbone. They are typically made of titanium and resemble small screws.

  2. Subperiosteal Implants: These implants are placed on top of the jawbone but underneath the gum line. They are typically used in patients who have limited bone height or who are unable to wear dentures.

  3. Zygomatic Implants: These implants are longer than other types of dental implants and are anchored into the cheekbone (zygomatic bone). They are typically used in patients who have significant bone loss in the upper jaw.

  4. All-on-4 Implants: This technique uses only four implants to support a full set of teeth. The implants are placed at an angle to provide maximum support and stability.

  5. Mini Implants: These are smaller in diameter than traditional implants and can be used to support dentures or replace a single tooth.

The type of implant used will depend on the patient’s specific needs and the amount and quality of available bone in the jaw. Your dentist or oral surgeon will be able to determine which type of implant is best for you.

Alternatives to dental implants

There are several alternatives to dental implants, depending on the specific situation and needs of the patient. Here are some common alternatives:

  1. Dental Bridges: Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth to adjacent natural teeth. The adjacent teeth are typically filed down to accommodate the bridge, and the artificial tooth is then secured in place.


  2. Partial Dentures: Partial dentures are removable appliances that are used to replace one or several missing teeth. They are made of acrylic or metal and are designed to fit snugly in the mouth.


  3. Full Dentures: Full dentures are removable appliances that are used to replace all the teeth in the upper or lower jaw. They are made of acrylic and are designed to fit snugly in the mouth.


  4. Dental Bonding: Dental bonding is a cosmetic procedure that uses a tooth-colored resin to fill in gaps, chips, or cracks in teeth. It can also be used to reshape teeth or improve their appearance.


  5. Dental Crowns: Dental crowns are custom-made caps that are placed over damaged or decayed teeth to protect and strengthen them. They can also be used to improve the appearance of teeth.


  6. Orthodontic Treatment: Orthodontic treatment, such as braces or clear aligners, can be used to straighten crooked or misaligned teeth, improving their appearance and function.


It’s important to consult with a dental professional to determine the best treatment option for your specific situation.

Dental implants vs Dental dentures

Dental implants and dentures are both used to replace missing teeth, but they differ in several ways. Here are some of the main differences between dental implants and dentures:

  1. Function: Dental implants are designed to function like natural teeth, whereas dentures can sometimes feel bulky and may require some adjustments to get used to. Implants are anchored to the jawbone and act as a stable base for a crown or bridge, while dentures sit on top of the gums and are held in place with adhesive or suction.


  2. Durability: Dental implants are generally more durable than dentures and can last for many years with proper care. Dentures, on the other hand, may need to be replaced or adjusted over time as the gums and bone structure change.


  3. Comfort: Dental implants are typically more comfortable than dentures since they are anchored securely in the jawbone and do not require adhesive or suction to stay in place. Dentures can sometimes cause discomfort or irritation of the gums and may need to be adjusted for a better fit.


  4. Appearance: Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth and are designed to blend in seamlessly with the surrounding teeth. Dentures may look less natural and can sometimes be noticeable when talking or smiling.


  5. Cost: Dental implants are generally more expensive than dentures, but they can also be a more long-term investment in oral health and function.


Ultimately, the decision between dental implants and dentures depends on a patient’s individual needs and circumstances. A dental professional can help determine the best treatment option based on factors such as oral health, budget, and personal preference.

If you are looking for a dental studio to get any work done on your teeth, I absolutely recommend Hills Dental Studio. From the moment you enter, you are greeted by the friendliest receptionist. The two dentists (Dr Surprise and Dr Craig are super welcoming. I've never liked going to the dentist and in the past, I would suffer from so much anxiety if I needed to get anything done.Dr Craig played soothing RnB music and I totally forgot he was doing a tooth extraction. He's always patient with me whenever I go for my monthly check ups. I've only had my braces in for 3/4 months now and I've seen a huge improvement. I cannot wait to see the final results 😁😁😁😁😁
