Single or Multiple Tooth Implants
We use the latest techniques to prevent tissue loss while placing implants in the aesthetics zone and in appropriate situations, can provide immediate placement. We also have considerable experience of placing multiple implants whether to replace multiple missing teeth or to support full mouth bridgework or implant supported dentures.
Surgery to increase the amount of bone in the posterior maxilla to help prepare the site for future placement of dental implants.
Chin and Ramus Grafts
In cases where bone has resorbed and there is insufficient ridge height or width for further treatment, surgery to increase the amount of bone in the mandible, helps provide enough bone to support the placement of dental implants.
A procedure where graft material is placed in the socket of an extracted tooth at the time of extraction to preserve the alveolar ridge.
This treatment concept was developed to provide edentulous patients with an efficient and effective restoration using only four implants to support an immediately loaded full-arch prosthesis.
