Having a confident smile and healthy oral health for every patient that walks through the doors of Kew Dentistry is the goal of its dentists, Dr. Joe Xanthopoulos and his elite team. This is why they have created a list of top treatments to ensure you get the smile you want with as little pain and hassle as possible.
The All-on-4 Procedure
What is the All-On-4 procedure? Simply put, it is a minimally invasive procedure that allows the dentist to replace an entire set of teeth with just four tiny titanium implants. World-famous implantologist Dr Andrei Fibishenko developed it. His revolutionary approach to dental implantology has made this procedure possible.
In fact, many patients who have had the all-on-4 procedure have stated that they would rather have this procedure than traditional tooth replacement. This is because there is virtually no anaesthesia required, no drilling, and very little discomfort after the procedure. Many patients are able to go back to work in just one day and return to their normal routine within just a few days. The healing time for this procedure is also very fast, usually only three to six months. During this time, the patient will experience no change in the appearance or function of their smile. Many patients have been smiling for more than five years after having this procedure.
Removal of Wisdom Teeth
Another of the team’s more common procedures is the removal of wisdom teeth. This is a very common procedure that is often necessary if the patient has severe crowding or other problems with their bite. Removing these teeth can be very painful and usually requires some type of anaesthesia.
However, this is not always the case. In some cases, especially when the wisdom teeth are impacted (very close to the surface of the jaw bone), the tooth can be removed without any type of anaesthesia at all. After the tooth is removed, the surgeon will clean the area and apply a local anaesthetic. Next, the surgeon will suture the gums closed and prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection.
The patient will be able to go back to work in just one or two days and return to their regular routine within just a few days. Impacted wisdom teeth are one of the leading reasons for people to seek out a dentist.
High-Grade and Modern Equipment
Dr Joe Xanthopoulos and his staff are highly trained and use only the most modern equipment available. This ensures the highest level of care for you and your family. It also means the team have access to the most current research available. As you can see, there are many options available when it comes to tooth replacement.
However, one thing is certain: Whatever option you select, you can be sure that Dr Kew and his team will use their advanced training and state-of-the-art equipment to give you the best possible care. Each procedure is handled with the best care to make sure patients feel as comfortable as possible and can resume their daily lives soon after.
