If you have lost a tooth and would like to look at the options for replacement, a Dental Implant may be the answer.

Dr. Alistair Graham has completed the Graduate Diploma in Clinical Dentistry (Oral Implants) from Sydney University, and has studied extensively in the UK, Australia and Switzerland on this field.  He is therefore highly qualified with extensive experience and recognised to provide the planning, surgical and restorative phases of the Implant treatment at Mona Vale Dental

This means that we have clarity of your whole treatment plan, and you are very much in control of the outcome. For you, this means that all of your treatment is completed in one place, and you have peace of mind that someone understands the entire treatment plan.

 

A Dental Implant is an artificial root made of titanium metal. It is placed into the jawbone to replace the root of the natural tooth. An artificial replacement tooth is attached to the implant. The implant acts as an anchor to hold the replacement tooth in place.

Dental Implants offer a solution for replacing missing teeth without damaging other teeth. A replacement tooth can be placed onto an Implant to give you back your smile, or let you eat what you want to again without having to put up with a gap between your teeth. Implants can be used to replace anything from one missing tooth to an entire mouth of teeth.

Treatment planning is done in conjunction with a 3D computer software system, so we can ensure that the highest level of accuracy is achieved when planning and executing treatment. In some cases, we complete the surgical treatment phase using computer guided surgical templates that ensure the most accurate implant placement.

We are also able to perform procedures such as bone grafting, soft tissue grafting, guided bone regeneration and sinus floor lifting if the bone quality and quantity needs to be improved in the proposed implant site.

Alistair is a member of the International Team for Implantology (ITI), the Australian Society of Osseointegration (AOS) and Osteology Foundation. Alistair also lectures on Implants and Implant treatment. He accepts referrals for Implants from General Dentists, and acts as a Mentor to colleagues in this field of Dentistry

What Our Customers Say

The team at Mona Vale Dental is not just top notch but world class. Dr. Graham has made sure he's always a master of the latest techniques. The fact that crowns and overlays can be done in a single session (without waiting to send away for molds, etc) is awesome. The quality of the work is always high. I personally have a challenging medical background and the Mona Vale Dental team is phenomenal at making sure all the specifics of my case are considered. And, on top of this, they're simply a really friendly bunch. Couldn't recommend them any more!read more

Our company designed and built the new practice environment for Dr Alistair Graham and I must say that the entire team at Mona Vale Dental were a real pleasure to work with from start to finish. They were and still are wonderful clients and people. His team are so caring and whilst we were shooting a video on location for a whole day, I saw first hand how the team greeted and looked after their patients. Wow was I impressed. The place looks amazing too and I recommend anyone in the local area to make an appointment and go and feel what it is like to be treated by such great professionals in an amazing space. We wish you all the best Dr Graham and team in your new practice.read more
