Implants are the new buzzword. Everybody is talking about implants these days.

There is more to implants than just filling gaps. Implants provide a solid foundation for a host of restorative options. Dentures are a thing of the past.

Implant dentistry is a process that needs to be done over time. There are many techniques and so much depends on the clinical situation. Every case is different.

Implant treatment needs to be well planned and done properly in order to ensure success… Would you build a house without an architect and without well-planned foundations? Just like any building construction, implants have to be planned.

Implants will last a long time and, although expensive at the beginning, they are a cost effective

long – term solution.

We look forward to empowering you in making the right decisions for your dental implant dentistry.

Do it right the first time.

Choose a quality restoration that will last for years and years. Choose gold or porcelain.

The most common white filling material used today is composite resin. It has replaced amalgam mainly because of its tooth colour. The research shows that it is a very poor restorative material. It is difficult to place in the tooth. It requires great operator skill, but in spite of that, it does not restore the tooth to its original shape and form. It is a poor filling material and does not produce good restoration.

The material is prone to promote secondary decay because of leakage and shrinkage. Is a causative factor in promoting gum disease and bone loss.

Although the initial cost of composite is low, it is a compromise solution with no long-term benefit. The biologic price is too high to pay. Why set your teeth on a path to loss which could have been avoided.

How many times do you want a tooth to be worked on in your lifetime?

Cheap is expensive – go for a cost-effective long-term solution. You will not regret it. This is sound professional advice that all good dentists will agree on.
