​​​​​​Missing teeth are a fact of life for millions of people around the world.  

IF YOU ARE ONE OF THEM AND WOULD LOVE TO HAVE  A BETTER ALTERNATIVE TO DENTURES ................

  • WITHOUT PAINFUL SURGERY
  • WITHOUT DAMAGE TO ADJACENT TEETH
  • WITH PROVEN HIGH SUCCESS RATES
  • WITHIN 2-3 WEEKS OF COMMENCING TREATMENT and
  • AT THE MOST REASONABLE RATES POSSIBLE


       ...........
YOU WILL DEFINITELY BENEFIT FROM  KEYHOLE IMPLANT DENTISTRY !




























The majority of dentists replace missing teeth with dentures, bridges or implants as described in options 1, 2 and 3 below and in the video further down on this page.


However, option 4, which is the most conservative method, is what this Society promotes. 


YOUR CURRENT OPTIONS:


1.  A removable acrylic or metal partial denture with visible retainer wires
2.  A porcelain bridge which requires permanent and irreversible damage to adjacent teeth
3.  A conventional dental implant which requires surgery and a 6 month healing period
4. Conservative keyhole dental implants which do not require surgery, do not damage adjacent teeth and which allow           completion of treatment within a few short weeks! Due to the
simplicity of this technique, it also REDUCES THE

    COST OF TREATMENT BY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS to around $3800 per tooth. To find a dentist who 

    can offer you this type of treatment please view the listings under the "MEMBERS" tab on this website.



For these reasons, Keyhole Implant Dentistry is the The Most Desirable And Preferred Technique by 100% of INFORMED patients for the replacement of their missing or extracted teeth.

the modern methods for tooth replacement and why this

keyhole method is the most ideal.

​​A Message From Dr. Joseph Shohmelian,  The Founder Of The ASCID


Traditionally, dentistry could only offer removable false teeth or bridges for the replacement of missing teeth.

Since the early 1980's more complex treatments in the form of surgery to implant titianium screws into the jawbones were introduced. Today, because only a very small percentage of dentists have the training and the expertise to perform such complex implant treatments, the public are still being treated with undesirable options such as removable partial dentures and bridges.

Furthermore, the complex and expensive surgical implant techniques which were developed in the mid 1980's are still being practised by the majority of implant dentists, while non-surgical "keyhole" methods have been shown to achieve the same level of success, without the pain, cost and delay that accompanies "conventional" implants.  

From my perspective, having been a part of the evolution of these changes since 1984, I cannot and will not recommend the invasive and often unnecessary techniques offered by the majority of implant dentists while the desired outcome for my patients can be achieved with the conservative options of "Keyhole Implant Dentistry"!

The high cost of  complex implant treatments has often led  patients to consider visiting clinics in Thailand or other locations. Many Australian patients have changed their plans and had treatment locally when they have found out about what we can do for them with this more affordable, simplified technology.

I sincerely hope that, if you are unhappy with the idea of living with missing teeth or being condemned to wear a removable denture for the rest of your life, you will consider this wonderful option to recreate what you originally had, teeth that are anchored IN your jaws, not just sitting ON the gums!  

Patients who have benefited from Keyhole Implant Dentistry have had their lives transformed, usually by the end of their first visit, discarding their dentures and enjoying the natural feel of non-removable teeth once again.

I wish you the same life-changing experience.
