Dental Implants

Implant illustrationDo you have missing teeth? Our practice offers complete dental implant therapy, whether you need to replace a single tooth or all of them at once.

Dental implants are a predictable and durable solution for long-term tooth replacement needs. The implant itself resembles the “root” of a tooth and can be topped off with a fixed restoration (such as a crown) to replace the visible portion that you see when you smile.

Who is a Candidate?

Implants are not for everyone, as they require healthy bone structure for support. Careful examination and radiographs are essential for our dentists to find out if you’re a candidate for dental implants, if you have missing or badly decayed teeth that re non-restorable. If kept clean and healthy, implants have the potential to last for the rest of your life.


Being that implants are the root portion of your new teeth; we can use them individually or in pairs to anchor multi-tooth restorations. Some of the most common types of implant treatments that our patients request includes

Single Tooth Implants — This traditional implant solution features an individual dental implant with a single porcelain crown. It mimics the shape and function of a natural tooth, blending in with your surrounding smile. Since it’s non-invasive to adjacent teeth, single implants are preferred over conventional bridges and partials.

Multi-Tooth Implant Bridges — The integrity of implants allows them to support the weight of multiple teeth. When used in pairs, implants can be topped off with a 3-4-unit (tooth) bridge, filling in wider gaps in your smile.

For single and multi-tooth implants, a period of healing is needed before the new implant can be topped off with a crown or bridge. During this 3-4-month span, the bone integrates with your implant to fuse it permanently into place. In the meantime, we can fit you with a temporary prosthesis for aesthetic purposes.

Full-Arch Implants — When you need to replace all your upper or lower teeth at once, a full-arch implant bridge is a wonderful solution. This service is like popular “All-on-4″ or “All-on-6″ implant systems that most people are familiar with. In the case of a full-arch treatment, we use 4-6 implants placed in the jaw at strategic points to support a longer dental bridge. There is no removable denture or bulky plate in the roof of your mouth. A full-arch system strengthens your smile and most people can have their new, permanent teeth within 48 hours.

The difference in dental implants and conventional tooth replacements is that implants

  • Are non-removable
  • Can last for decades
  • Are non-invasive to adjacent teeth
  • Strengthen your natural smile

  • Can be used for any number of teeth
  • Promote healthy bone and facial profiles
  • Mimic natural tooth designs

Find Out if You’re a Candidate

The typical dental implant procedure can be completed with local anaesthetic, as it’s relatively minimally invasive. However, we also offer a variety of sleep dentistry options to help you relax. During your implant consultation, we’ll discuss which options are most appropriate and create a plan that’s personalised to your unique situation.
