Dental implants can look, feel and function like natural teeth. They are the best solution for patients who require replacement of one, multiple or all remaining teeth.

There are many restoration alternatives that will be considered, depending on your unique problem.

Our specialists are leading experts in implants and restorative dentistry. Our team of Periodontists and Prosthodontists work together to analyze, diagnose and provide a comprehensive treatment plan, while always keeping your optimum oral health as the foundation of your care.

This unique combination of specialties allows us to provide comprehensive treatment in one practice, from surgical implant treatment through to restoration.

Dental implants are titanium anchors

Implants are used to permanently replace teeth that are missing or cannot be saved. They serve as root replacements to support crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Dental implants have revolutionized dentistry and have become the standard of care for replacement of missing or soon to be missing teeth.

Our specialists have vast experience in the placement and restoration of dental implants. They lecture nationally and internationally on implants, advanced surgical & restorative procedures, as well as teach and mentor local dentists in these techniques.

Look, Feel & Function of natural teeth
    • Best Long-Term Solution

      Implants are the best long-term solution for the replacement of missing teeth. With the highest success rate over any tooth-replacement option of over 95%.

    • Stops Bone Loss & Improves Facial Structure

      Implants act like the roots of teeth, in that they help prevent bone loss that inevitably follows tooth loss. This preservation of bone may help preserve your appearance and facial contours that result in minimizing wrinkles.

    • Reduce the Load on Your Remaining Teeth & Structures

      Dental implants reduce the load on the remaining oral structures and teeth by offering independent support and retention for crowns, bridges and overdentures.

    • Preserve Adjacent Teeth

      Dental implants reduce the need for restorative intervention involving adjacent teeth.

    • Improved Chewing & Speaking

      Implant overdentures and All-on-4 implants with fixed bridges have been shown to contribute to improved chewing efficiency and speaking compared to complete (removable) dentures.

When you have one tooth missing

A single implant is inserted into the bone to replace the root of a tooth; a crown then goes on top to simulate an actual tooth.

This treatment choice has a high success rate, making it the best long-term investment for replacing a single missing tooth or one that has to be removed. Even if the initial cost is slightly higher than other options, it can be the most cost-effective solution in the long-run.

An implant is the solution that feels most similar to the tooth that it replaces.

When you have more than one tooth missing

Implants provide an ideal replacement mechanism if you have lost or will lose several teeth. For example, if you are missing three teeth in a row, a fixed bridge can be created supported by two implants. This consists of two implants, one on either side of the gap, and a crown in between that has no implant underneath.

Using implants rather than supporting false teeth with adjacent natural teeth, avoids preparation/cutting of tooth structure which could weaken them and make them more susceptible to future decay, root canal problems or fracture.

The alternative of one implant per tooth can also be considered, if individualized teeth are the preferred solution.

Also called the ‘TEETH IN ONE DAY’ concept

All-on-4 is a revolutionary oral rehabilitation approach for people who have lost all their teeth, or for those who must consider many extractions due to disease, with the placement of as few as 4 implants to support a fixed or non-removable prosthesis. Because of the reduced number of implants and their unique positioning, All-on-4™ is a financially reasonable, stable, and reliable solution for patients with a complete dental arch with missing teeth.

Many patients who may not have been candidates for implants in the past, can undergo this treatment due to the unique placement of 2 posterior implants at a 45 degree angle – requiring less bone height by avoiding enlarged sinuses to safely and securely anchor the implants, often without major bone grafting procedures.

The All-on-4™ solution is documented to have a high rate of success with life-changing and satisfying results for patients previously forced to consider full dentures.

Implant Retained Dentures

Implants can anchor a removable full denture to reduce it’s movement or better yet, an arch of upper or lower replacement teeth can be fixed to multiple implants (4-10) allowing the restoration of the dentition with a fixed restoration in the form of fixed bridgework or crowns, or a fixed denture, which contains crowns as well as realistic-looking prosthetic (replacement) gum tissue.
