Missing teeth are a fact of life for millions of people around the world. If you are one of them, this website aims to provide answers to your concerns and convince you that the replacement of your missing teeth using "Keyhole Dental Implants" to support non-removable porcelain crowns and bridges by Australian dentists is the most ideal option for you.
IF YOU HAVE MISSING TEETH AND WOULD LOVE TO HAVE A BETTER ALTERNATIVE TO DENTURES ................
........... YOU WILL DEFINITELY BENEFIT FROM KEYHOLE IMPLANT DENTISTRY !
The most common current options to replace missing teeth are:
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 to around $3000 per tooth ($4,250 for molars requiring double implants).
For these reasons, Conservative 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.
Watch this short 8 minute video for more information about the modern methods for tooth replacement and why this keyhole method is the most ideal.
If you would like to learn about the benefits and problems associated with each of the options discussed in this video, you may like to download this 125 - page eBook before making your decision. It will give you a greater understanding of why 100% of patients who are informed about the limitations of dentures, bridges and conventional implants prefer to proceed with this most conservative option.

A MESSAGE FROM 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.
I encourage you to contact any of the members of the Society listed on this website to find out if this type of treatment is suitable for your needs.
