Implant dentistry

Implant dentistry is a growing field that offers patients a good alternative to dentures and bridges in many cases. Implants can be used to replace single teeth, or to support bridges and dentures, without the need to sacrifice healthy tooth tissue.  Our dentists work in conjunction with a surgeon who places the implant to maximise its orientation and position, so that the prosthetic tooth can be aesthetically pleasing as well as functional. This practice has a good working relationship with Northern Rivers Oral Maxillo-Facial Surgery in Lismore (Dr Bilski) who use Biomet 3i and Neoss Implant systems. We have also used Nobel Biocare, Innovadent and other systems over time in support with differing surgeons, such as Dr Neil Latcham at Benowa, Gold Coast.
