3D technology is changing the face of one of Newcastle and Hunter’s implant and dental clinics

Dental implants are becoming more affordable with new digital scanning technologies being made available to patients.

Affordable Dentures and Implants, located in Charlestown and Greenhills, is leading the way in the region and provides affordable solutions for implant and denture procedures that were once out of reach for many patients.

Implant treatments are less invasive with increased precision and efficiency, revolutionizing the way patients receive their new, healthy smile, says Leif Svensson, Clinical Director of Affordable Dentures & Implants.

Having performed more than 3,000 digital scans himself, Svensson says “the digital process is much more comfortable for our patients and allows patients to fit implants and dentures better, faster and at a lower cost.”

Over 1,000 images of your teeth are taken in less than a second, using a 3D digital scanner not much bigger than your electric toothbrush.

The precision is impeccable. These images are then transformed into cosmetic implant teeth or dentures in far fewer appointments. And for patients who can’t stand gooey impression molds, it’s a real game-changer when it comes to comfort.

“Because the digital capture process is shorter than the traditional process, patient appointments have been cut in half in many cases, making implant and denture treatments more affordable and much more comfortable. “, explains Svensson.

“Positive outcomes have improved dramatically for implant treatments with digital implant planning at Affordable Dentures and Implants.”

The digital implementation steps are now so amazing.

The digital scan is combined with your x-ray and the implant surgeons are able to do mock surgery to determine the best implant size and bone quality. From this step, a 3D printed guide is made and used on the day of surgery to guide the surgeon to place the implant in the right place.

With the average Australian adult reportedly missing 4.5 teeth, missing teeth can affect the ability to speak, eat and smile, affecting a person’s quality of life. The experienced team at Affordable Dentures and Implants only focus on replacing missing teeth, which means you can continue to see your regular dentist. When asked what was the key to the success of this clinic, the answer was simple: “We don’t do cleanings, fillings or general dental work. We only do tooth replacement treatments, so you can say well yes, we’ve gotten really good at it,” says Svensson.

“With a number of payment plans available, patients can also access their superannuation to cover all the costs of their treatment for themselves or a family member.”
