Implants

Missing teeth need to be replaced both for cosmetics and function. Leaving a gap usually leads to problems such as further tooth movement, overloading and breakage, and TMJ problems. We replace missing teeth with removable dentures, fixed bridges, or implants.

At Great Teeth we have successfully treated many satisfied patients using dental implants since our first case in 1981 when the treatment first became available in NZ.

Our cases have ranged from single tooth replacement to an entire mouthful of teeth in patients who previously had dentures and found them to be unsatisfactory.

Our modern CAD-CAM systems make it possible to make implant crowns and even multi-tooth implant bridges in just one appointment, saving you time and discomfort.

TMJ Problems

TMJ ProblemsHeadaches, muscular pain around the head and neck, earache, visual disturbances, popping noises, limited opening and chewing function, tooth wear and breakage are all symptoms associated with TMJ Syndrome.

It occurs when regular biting contacts have been disturbed by teeth growing out of line, or tipping after an extraction or poorly shaped restorations and fillings. TMJ sufferers often have many years of discomfort and seek symptomatic relief from Physios and other health professionals, but have not found a permanent cure.

At Great Teeth Dental we have treated a large number of patients successfully over the last 20 years by determining the cause of the dysfunction and fabricating night guards to eliminate the symptoms, or permanently fixing the problem by correctively reshaping the biting surfaces.
