What our dentists do?


Modern dentistry is now able to provide highly aesthetic solutions to missing teeth in the form of implants and implant bridges.  If you have a missing tooth or teeth, perhaps due to an injury or extraction, you may want to consider dental implants instead of dentures. 

For many people, dental implants are the perfect solution to replace both form and function in the mouth.   Dental implants can replace a single tooth, a dental bridge or a full arch. 

The implant crown is a natural-looking tooth replacement that provides an excellent, long-term solution.  Since a dental implant is integrated directly into the jawbone, it helps prevent the jawbone from shrinking and the surrounding teeth from changing position.

 It mimics nature and reduces speech impediments or eating difficulties associated with missing teeth.

Talk to our experienced dentists today and find out if implants are the answer for you.  

Implant Assessment

At our clinic, we are experienced at placing implant prostheses and enjoy these challenging cases.  Your dentist will work in conjunction with our local oral surgeon and dental technician to place the implants. 

Implant Surgery

An oral surgeon will extract any teeth required and surgically place the implant fixture.  The surgical cost may be covered by your medical insurance.


After the implant fixture is placed by an oral surgeon, it is left to osseointegrate (fuse) with the bone for a few months.   Your dentist will then make up a tailor-made implant crown to fit over the fixture.  Come and talk to us today about the implant options available to you.
