Regain your confidence with South Coast Smiles - the Illawarra's All-on-4 specialists
The advanced technology of All-on-4 dental implants gives you back the confidence to smile and eat the foods you love all within a few days.

It used to be that the only choice for replacing missing or damaged teeth was dentures – it meant being conscious about many of the simple enjoyments in lifelike smiling and eating the foods you love. Times have changed. Now you can have beautiful, natural-looking new teeth that are completely secure and comfortable and will last for years to come.

The All-on-4 breakthrough allows us to replace all the teeth in an upper or lower jaw using just 4 dental implants.

Existing damaged teeth are removed, high-quality titanium implants are inserted and just days later you have your new smile. The reduced treatment and recovery time make the treatment cost-effective and allows you to get on with your life without feeling held back by your teeth

Dr. Arun Thangavel is a leading specialist in prosthodontics. He and his specialist team have spent 15 years helping countless patients regain their confidence with implant treatments. South Coast Smiles, the new state-of-the-art facility in Fairy Meadow, Wollongong, has been purpose-built to create your new smile.

All-on-4 step-by-step:
Discuss, Diagnose and Plan

Dr. Thangavel will assess your needs, discuss your concerns and your goals, and collect the measurements needed to perfect the position and appearance of your new teeth. This includes fixing existing bite problems. Your surgical and dental plan is created just for you. It allows you to see how your new teeth will look, giving you the ultimate peace of mind right from the start. Photographs, video, and 3D CT imaging determine optimal implant placement, including a state-of-the-art 3D-printed surgical guide ensuring implants are placed with precision.

Implant placement

Top-tier Swiss-manufactured titanium implants are secured in the jaw with the aid of computer-guided surgery, with sedation from a specialist anesthetist. After the implants are placed, your temporary teeth are tested to check the appearance, fit and bite. The whole thing takes only 2-3 hours and recovery time can vary from 1-4 days, depending on your specific surgery.

Permanent teeth

Just 1-4 days after implant surgery, your new teeth are fitted. You’ll see that many other clinics which offer this procedure claim to fit permanent teeth at this stage. What they’re not telling you is that when teeth have been removed and implants inserted, bone and gums need to fully heal before their final position is set. This does not mean you will be without teeth during this process. You will have beautiful, natural-looking teeth, but they will be temporary to ensure the perfect fit when everything is fully healed. Dr. Thangavel will monitor your healing and ensure your recovery is smooth. Post-op reviews are typically required at 1 week, 4 weeks, and 3 months

Final bridge

Once healing is fully complete, 3-6 months after implant placement, your final bridge is fitted. This is custom-made by Australia’s best dental technicians and is designed to last you 10+ years. We always include the cost of the final bridge in your quote.
