Dental In Implants Johannesburg

Are you in search of a long-lasting, natural-looking solution for missing teeth that won’t break the bank? Look no further than dental implants. 

In Johannesburg, South Africa, Hills Dental Studio offers a range of affordable dental implant options that can restore your smile’s appearance, functionality, and health. 

With state-of-the-art equipment and an experienced team, we make the dental implant procedure not only affordable but also comfortable, safe, and effective for all our patients.

What Are Dental Implants?

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

Made of biocompatible materials like titanium, they fuse with the jawbone over time, creating a sturdy foundation for the replacement tooth. In essence, they act as permanent teeth. 

The advantages of dental implants over other tooth replacement options include their natural appearance, durability, comfort, and their ability to preserve bone structure and prevent further tooth loss.


At Hills Dental Studio, we offer several types of dental implants to cater to different patient needs:

  • Endosteal Implants: These are the most common type, resembling small screws, and are placed directly into the jawbone.
  • Subperiosteal Implants: Placed on top of the jawbone but beneath the gum line, they are ideal for patients with limited bone height or those who cannot wear dentures.
  • Zygomatic Implants: Longer than other types, they anchor into the cheekbone and are suitable for patients with significant bone loss in the upper jaw.
  • All-on-4 Implants: Using only four implants to support a full set of teeth, this technique provides maximum support and stability.
  • Mini Implants: Smaller in diameter than traditional implants, they can support dentures or replace a single tooth.


The type of implant used depends on the patient’s specific needs and the amount of available jawbone. Preparing for a dental implant procedure includes:

  • Consultation with a dentist or oral surgeon to evaluate your suitability for the procedure.
  • A review of your medical history to ensure safety.
  • X-rays and CT scans to assess bone density and quality.
  • Cleaning and treatment of any existing dental issues.
  • Anesthesia options tailored to your comfort.

Pre-surgery instructions for a smooth procedure.


Dental implant procedures involve replacing missing teeth with artificial tooth roots that are surgically placed into the jawbone. 

Here is what patients can expect during the procedure:

  1. Numbing and Anesthesia ensure your comfort.
  2. An incision is made in the gum to expose the jawbone.
  3. A hole is drilled in the bone for implant placement.
  4. The implant, usually titanium, is inserted into the bone.
  5. A healing period allows the implant to integrate with the bone.
  6. An abutment is placed on the implant.
  7. A custom-made crown is attached to the abutment, completing the procedure.

While some discomfort is expected, our practice minimizes it with pain relief medication and antibiotics to prevent infection. 

Follow post-operative instructions diligently for a successful recovery.


Missing teeth can cause a number of problems, both cosmetic and functional. 

Fortunately, dental implants offer a solution that can help improve your smile, boost your confidence, and restore your ability to chew and speak properly. 

Here are some of the benefits of dental implants:

  • Improved Appearance: They look and feel like natural teeth.
  • Enhanced Speech: They restore proper speech.
  • Improved Eating and Chewing: Function like natural teeth.
  • Long-lasting and Durable: With proper care, they can last a lifetime.
  • Improved Jawbone Health: Prevents bone loss in the jaw.


To ensure the success and longevity of your dental implants:

  • Maintain good oral hygiene.
  • Avoid hard and sticky foods initially.
  • Quit smoking or reduce it.
  • Attend follow-up appointments.
  • Consider a mouth guard for protection.
  • Report any issues promptly.

The dental implant procedure is done under local anesthesia or conscious sedation, so you should not feel any pain during the surgery. After the procedure, you may experience some discomfort or swelling, but this can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain medications.

Dental implants are designed to last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. However, the longevity of your dental implant depends on factors such as your oral hygiene, overall health, and the quality of the implant materials and techniques used.

Yes, one of the advantages of dental implants is that they function like natural teeth, so you can eat a wide range of foods without any restrictions. However, it’s important to maintain good oral hygiene to prevent any complications or damage to the implant.

The cost of a tooth implant in South Africa varies depending on various factors such as the type of implant, the number of implants needed, and the complexity of the case. At Hills Dental Studio, we offer a personalized treatment plan and cost estimate based on your specific needs.

Medical aid schemes may cover the cost of dental implants depending on your plan and the reason for the treatment. It’s important to check with your medical aid provider to confirm your coverage.

While dental implants are a popular and effective tooth replacement option, there are some downsides to consider. These include the need for surgery, potential complications such as infection or implant failure, and the high cost of treatment.

With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last a lifetime. Regular dental check-ups and good oral hygiene habits are important to ensure the longevity of your dental implants.

Yes, dental implants can be done in one day with the use of advanced techniques such as guided implant surgery and immediate loading implants. However, not all cases are suitable for same-day implant placement.

Most dental implant procedures are performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the area being treated. However, sedation options such as oral sedation or IV sedation may be offered for patients who experience anxiety or fear during the procedure.

The three stages of dental implant treatment include the implant placement surgery, the healing phase, and the final restoration phase where the crown or bridge is attached to the implant post.

My daughter and I have had such a pleasant experience with The Hills Dental Studio family so far, we first consulted with Dr Surprise who was very professional, patient and thorough in explaining the whole braces procedure and soon thereafter the journey began, oh wait, I have to send a shout out to Fatu, the most amazing Receptionist, forever smiling and warm , as well as Mokgadi the Dr's assistant, you guys are awesome!). FFW.. when it was time for her to have some teeth extracted Dr Craig took over, OMG I was so nervous about this surgery because it was a little complicated, but Dr Craig was so gentle, and the recovery was phenomenal. He is such a great Dr and it is evident that he and Dr Surprise truly love what they do.

I went to Hills Dental Studio earlier today to remove my wisdom tooth. Dr Craig assisted me. I was very nervous but Dr Craig communicated with me throughout the procedure to ensure I was still comfortable and not in pain. This helped me relax. Thank you Dr Craig for your kind and professional service. I will definitely be recommending Hills Dental Studio to everyone I know.
