General,Smile Makeover

SmileBay Signature is a premier dental establishment that is situated strategically in the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of George Town in Penang, Malaysia. As the flagship facility of SmileBay, it specialises in whole-mouth rehabilitation, including cutting-edge dental implant techniques and smile makeovers utilising digital smile design.

SmileBay Signature is set to become a one-stop centre for patients who are looking for top-notch full mouth restorations and same-day dentistry, thanks to its team’s multidisciplinary approach employing the specialised expertise of its dental surgeons and digital dental technicians.

Dental implants are among the popular dental services provided at SmileBay Signature. One of them is the All-on-4 advanced dental implants, a surgical procedure that involves the rehabilitation of an edentulous jaw with only four implants and subsequently attaching a full-arch fixed prosthesis to these implants, which is done on the day of surgery. This not only streamlines the procedure but also minimises patients’ discomfort.

With implants, damaged or missing teeth can be replaced with prosthetic teeth that both look and function like genuine teeth. To ensure that their implants are of the greatest quality and give their patients the finest results, SmileBay Signature uses the most recent technology and materials.

A Meticulous Process

At SmileBay Signature, the implant process normally entails a few protocols. To decide whether implants are a good option, the dentist will first thoroughly examine the patient’s teeth and gums. The dentist will then develop a treatment plan that is unique to the patient’s needs if implants are suggested. Proper and thorough examination is done with advanced diagnostics equipment such as the cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) digital scanner.

Next, the dentist will proceed with the implantation process. The dental team at SmileBay Signature favours computer guided surgery for this part of the procedure to reduce guesswork and ensure better precision and outcomes.

“With computer guided surgery, you basically pre-plan where you want to put your implants. This way, you already know what is going on and what will happen. It minimises risks of complications occurring compared to conventional surgery methods,” shared SmileBay dentist Dr. Cynthia Chee.

The implant, which resembles a little screw made of titanium, is placed into the jawbone. This will serve as an artificial tooth root. To reach the jawbone during this procedure, a tiny incision is usually made in the gum tissue. A temporary crown or bridge is then put over the implant to cover it while it heals and the gum tissue is then stitched shut. This entire procedure is conducted under local anaesthesia.

The implant and jawbone will progressively unite over the coming months through a process known as osseointegration. A permanent crown or bridge that is specially created to match the patient’s natural teeth is used to replace the temporary crown or bridge once the implant has completely fused with the jawbone.

Modern technology and advanced dental equipment are used at SmileBay Signature to create implants that are of the highest calibre and yield durable results, thus ensuring that the patient receives the best care possible. Get in touch to find out more about its implant dentistry capabilities today!
