Missing teeth do more than just create a negative impression. Every missing tooth you have increases your risk for decay, infection and additional, future missing teeth.

Dr. van der Merwe is one of a few implant dentists uniquely qualified to perform both the surgical and restorative phases of implant dentistry. Most people prefer a permanent, non-removable dental implant, as opposed to a removable plastic denture. The implants are inserted into your jawbone, under your gums. The end result is a fine ceramic implant crown, which looks and feels right at home alongside your natural teeth. Dental implants are very secure, and require minimal recovery time (2-3 months depending on oral health). Nobel Biocare is the brand we mostly use as it is available internationally and show to have very good clinical results and long term success.
