The festive season is the perfect time to address any dental concerns. We recommend Dental Implants as an excellent option for permanently filling the gaps in your smile and bolstering your overall health. Getting dental implants will not only enhance your appearance for the start of the new year, but they’re also a great way to prioritise your health and well-being. 

At this point of the year, many people will be searching for ways to renew their lives in 2023. If this is you, taking care of your dental health is a significant step to set yourself up for success. So, don’t put off visiting us any longer – book a consultation to treat yourself to some dental TLC this festive season.

Make dental implants a priority on your wish list to enter the new year with confidence and a healthy, beautiful smile.


Why Dental Implants Should Be on the Top of Your Wish List



#1 Start 2023 the Right Way


Don’t wait until the new year to take care of your oral health. Book your dental implant treatment this festive season while you have time off from work. This will make it easier to schedule appointments and allow for ample healing time. Dental implants are a long process, but booking now will set you on the right path for a healthy and confident 2023. For a limited time only, we’re also including a free teeth whitening treatment with all dental implant services


#2 Improve Your Appearance


Dental implants are designed to restore the natural appearance of your teeth, allowing you to smile confidently. Our All-On-Four implants, also known as “teeth-in-a-day”, can restore a complete set of teeth via four implants. How? We will “immediately load” your mouth with temporary crown fixtures. This way, you can enjoy the aesthetics and function of a complete set of teeth while the implant fixtures heal. After 3-6 months, the temporary crowns will be replaced with permanent ones, giving you a beautiful, fully functional smile. As such, you can enjoy the benefits of your new smile during the festive period. 


#3 Better Function


Dental implants can fully restore the function of your teeth, allowing you to eat what you like with ease. We’re also able to fix any difficulty you may have speaking due to missing teeth. While dentures are also an option, these can be unpredictable and restrict you from eating certain foods. Life’s short, so don’t let missing teeth hold you back from enjoying all that life has to offer.


#4 Durability


There aren’t many presents on our Christmas wish lists that will remain with us forever. But, dental implants are a long-lasting solution for tooth loss. When properly cared for, these fixtures can last a lifetime, providing a permanent, reliable option for restoring your smile. So, consider dental implants this festive season for a gift to yourself that will continue to give.


#5 Comfort


Unlike dentures, which can easily slip out and cause discomfort, dental implants are permanent fixtures that are indistinguishable from your natural teeth. They consist of two parts: a titanium screw that mimics a natural tooth root and stimulates the jawbone and a crown fixture that is shaped to blend in with your remaining teeth. As such, dental implants allow you to enjoy a comfortable, natural-looking smile.


#6 Convenience


Dental implants are easy to maintain, just as you would your natural teeth. Simply brush and floss them, and visit your dentist for regular checkups and cleanings. Over time, you may need to have the crown adjusted or restored, but this won’t be a frequent occurrence. So, in turn, dental implants are a convenient, low-maintenance solution for tooth loss.


#7 Have a Healthier Smile


Dental implants are essential for maintaining a healthy smile after tooth loss. Without them, you can experience jawbone deterioration at the site of the missing tooth, leading to a sunken, hollow facial appearance. Bacteria can also enter the site and cause infection. Dental implants help prevent these issues by maintaining the structure of your mouth, protecting your gums, and improving your oral health


#8 Increased Self-esteem


Dental implants can improve your self-confidence and self-esteem as you enter the new year, allowing you to conquer any social situation with a complete smile.


#9 Avoid the Need for Further Corrective Work


If you are missing teeth, the remaining ones might shift to fill the empty space, potentially causing a misaligned bite. As such, orthodontic treatment could be necessary to correct your bite. Dental implants can thwart this movement by filling the gaps in your smile and supporting your neighbouring teeth. They’re also an excellent option for averting fillings and reducing sensitivity in the affected area.


#10 Miracle Anti-Ageing


Dental implants can help restore a youthful appearance by filling in gaps left by missing teeth and improving a sunken, hollow facial appearance.



Dental Sedation:


Implant placement surgery is typically a minor procedure that brings minimal discomfort. However, our dentists have undertaken extra training to deliver dental sedation for patients who experience dental fear or feel anxious when sitting in the dentist’s chair for extended sessions.
