Dental Implants are a good long-term option to replace missing teeth. This can range from a single tooth implant following extraction (immediate placement) to upper and lower full arch replacements (all-on-four or all-on-six).

At Dr Richards clinics we place Southern Implants which are South African. Implants are made from titanium and are placed using the same local anaesthetic we use for fillings. The placement of implants can be carried out with IV sedation if our patients are nervous or require more complex treatments.
Implants can only be placed if there is enough bone present in the jaw. When teeth are lost the bone around the teeth gradually dissolves away. If too much bone has been lost it is sometimes necessary to place additional bone via a bone graft. This is also done under local anaesthetic.
We aim to make you feel welcome during dental visits. At your first visit, we may discuss your medical history and conduct a thorough oral examination, which may include necessary X-rays.
We encourage you to discuss any concerns you may have about your oral health. We will be happy to explain any treatment required. It may be necessary to make further appointments to allow sufficient time to complete any dental treatment.
Following the initial examination and appropriate special investigations (x-rays and/or CBCT scans) we will be able to give you an estimate of costs. We fully appreciate that some people are apprehensive about some aspects of dental treatments. We will do our best to reassure you and plan any treatment accordingly.
You can be confident that you will receive the best care in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Should you have any queries regarding your dental care, please do not hesitate to ask.
Dr Neha Gokani works alongside Dr Hennie Van Jaarsfield to look after our patients. Dr Neha Gokani qualified from the Unviversity of Wales, College of Medicine in 2004 and completed her Diploma in Implant Dentistry in 2017. Dr Hennie Van Jaarsfield is our visiting specialist periodontist who places majority of the implants at our clinic and carries out any necessary periodontal (gum) surgery. Dr Gokani then restores these implants after sufficient integration with crowns or bridges as appropriate.
Most cases require a six month waiting period for the body to accept and integrate with the implant. However, all-on-four cases (which replace all missing teeth in one arch with four or six implants) are restored with bridges on the same day. Each case is assessed thoroughly and the best options for the patient are considered.
Please do not hesitate to book in for a consultation where we would be happy to go through any questions or concerns you may have.
