Dental Implants in Canterbury

What Types of Implants Are Offered at Fine Dentistry?

Dental Implants at Fine DentistryWe’re happy to provide patients with a few different options when it comes to implants. Because no two patients are alike, we believe in suggesting the best care for your specific oral health needs. Dr Shaw is experienced in placing the following types of implants:

  • All-on-4 Dental Implants: Perhaps the most advanced implant technique available today, All-on-4 implants are ideal for patients looking to replace their full arch. All-on-4 implants are a minimally invasive solution that can restore your smile without the need for bone grafting and can be set with only four implants.
  • Single Implants: For patients needing a single tooth replaced, we’re happy to provide exactly that. We’ll colour match the implant and make it a perfect fit to ensure a natural appearance.
  • Implant Bridges: A single implant bridge typically consists of implanting a surgically positioned titanium rod into the jawbone. This holds the bridge in place permanently, unlike dentures which can be removed.

Who Is A Good Candidate for Implants?

At Fine Dentistry, we’ve helped patients well into their 80’s smile bigger with implants. No matter which season of life you’re in, implants can be a fantastic option for your oral health. We do not, however, suggest implants for young patients whose teeth may still be shifting and growing—making patients aged 21 and up the best candidates for implant dentistry.


Discover which option is best for your needs when you book an appointment with us. We’re happy to offer payment plans through Denti Care and MAC Credit and even have a HICAPS machine on site for your convenience. We look forward to meeting you!
