By Dr William Zafiropoulos
Why Dr William?
Dr William has a targeted focus for both placing and restoring dental implants entirely in house, taking great pride in achieving results in the most difficult of cases. Dr William has been placing dental implants since 1993, after having been trained in dental implant placement in California, USA. Having placed over 1000 dental implants, Dr William and our team celebrate our unique experience and high success rates. Dr Dilliam was amongst the first Australian dentists to have in house PRP facility and a CBCT scanner (Cone beam Computed Tomography- CT scanner)
Our practice prefers to use the highly regarded Noble Biocare dental implants from Gothenburg, Sweden; among other systems where specially indicated. Nobel Biocare dental implants are at the absolute forefront of dental implant innovation and provide for the widest range of prosthetic options. What this means is that with Nobel BioCare, more dental implant cases can be completed to a higher standard.
Your progress from the very first consultation to your final post-treatment visit will be closely monitored by Dr William and his team.
High precision and utilisation of the latest technology are the two main elements which are key to the success of our implant dental practice. In fact, all implant work is guaranteed with our peace of mind 10 year warranty.
Dental Implants are medical grade titanium screws that are placed into your jaw bone to replace missing tooth roots, as it were. New bone then develops around the titanium screw in place, to form a near perfect union- the implant is effectively fused to your jaw bone. A porcelain crown (new tooth) is then attached to the dental implant, resulting in a beautiful artificial new tooth that looks and feels real and is more robust than the rest of your teeth.
The 7 secrets for implant success.
Dental implants are the modern way to replace missing teeth. No need to drill or damage other adjacent teeth and no removeable dentures. Dental implants are the best replacement you can have for a missing tooth.
Fast accurate 3D scanning using the latest version i-tero Elements 2 scanner.
Literally 3-4 million photos of your teeth are taken in a few minutes- these images are stitched together using a high spec computer to render a super accurate 3D Implant dental model.
This 3D implant dentistry model, as opposed to older analogue moulds/impressions (plaster or silicone), is used to plan your dental implant dentistry. The results, when combined with data from a CT scan, form your implant dental treatment plan.
Experience in diagnosis and education, it stands to reason that the longer you have been doing something the better you get at it.
Dr William has been providing implant dentistry since 1993 after receiving training in dental implantology in California, USA. Dr William was amongst the first implant dentists in Sydney to have an in house CBCT (CT scanner) and PRP machine for bone grafting.
Close monitoring of every implant dental case. Most dentists provide you with the restorative phase of dental implants alone, and delegate the surgery to other dentists or dental specialists. Dr William provides all your treatment (surgical and restorative) in house in almost every case. This leads to fewer breakdowns in communication and ultimately better results.
Expedited delivery and information – Dr William, via use of technical portals and the latest i-tero 3D scanner receives correspondence from the USA in hours not weeks.
This is not the case with dentists who use the post to send their analogue moulds- impressions to their dental laboratories- it literally takes shaves days-weeks from the process as compared with older style models.
In addition, we have clinical software that will show you your predicted results immediately after your 3D scan.
Genuine Product- not a cheap and nasty copycat. Dr William exclusively uses premium medical grade Titanium dental implant fixtures that are made in the USA. Most dental implants provided are manufactured by Nobel Biocare-USA.
Guarantee – Dr William guarantees that you will get the results as per your predicted outcome and warranties the products used for 10 years.
Cosmetic focus – Dr William focuses on the final cosmetic outcome of your implant dental case. As such we utilise advanced techniques to ensure that every case (including yours) achieves the best aesthetic outcome possible. For example, Dr william uses the Palacci technique to ensure that your gumline appears as natural as possible adjacent to your implant. You will leave our clinic with a natural looking replacement tooth on every visit. That is you will never be without a tooth. See photographs on this page.
The Implant Procedure
Before (attractive young lady with a fractured upper left front tooth that has drifted downwards). With both upper central incisor teeth being severely angled, expectations are high for a perfect result that corrects the poor angulation.
After removal of upper left front tooth (on the right hand side on photograph- 2 temporary front teeth have been placed (whilst the dental implant and bone graft placed by Dr William heals and becomes integrated with the existing natural bone).
X-ray of fractured upper left front tooth that requires removal. (The tooth was to be extracted according to the advice of the treating Endodontist).
X-ray after fractured tooth has been removed, implant and bone graft have been placed by Dr William.
Final results: 2 new porcelain crowns on the 2 upper front teeth.
(one on an implant and one on a natural tooth)
With a dental implant, there is no need to grind down the healthy adjacent teeth. The implant post inserted into your bone provides support for the crown (artificial new tooth).
Single dental implants are in the order of $5,500 for back teeth. $6500 for front teeth depending on complexity or ($250 per month on finance) with our payment options. Fees are split 3 ways, approximately $2000-to $2500 for the screw in the bone, $ 1500 for part 2, the abutment which sticks out of the bone and $2000-$3000 for the implant crown. A fixed quote based on prices as quoted above will be provided to you prior to proceeding with your dental implants. A ten year warranty applies. In practice, the implant fixture is placed into the bone and a temporary tooth is placed onto the implant-provided your bone is strong enough. This temporary tooth looks and feels like the real final tooth. Six months later, when your bone has healed around the implant, your permanent tooth is permanently screwed to your implant and your case is complete. The fees can be staggered to make the procedure more affordable.
Note we cannot warrant that your implant will not be rejected by your body, but we will replace failed implants at no charge or we will credit the fees you have paid towards other dental work with us for you or your family.
Add $750 for bone grafting and $1500 for sinus lifting where required.
Also add $750 for each and every gum lift procedure. We will advise you on how may procedures will be necessary to a achieve a perfect result.
IV sedation is billed at $750 per hour, by a board registered Dental Anesthologist. This IV Twilight sedation produces anxiolysis (anxiety relief), hypnosis and amnesia (inability to form new memories only during the duration -time frame of sedation) but does not render the patient unconscious, rather the patient is heavily sedated for the duration of the procedure only.
