Replace several missing teeth with a fixed dental implant bridge using just two or more dental implants.

When it comes to performing dental implant surgery, there are no regulations on the amount of training a general dentist must complete before they can place dental implants. A general dentist may complete a 1 or 2-day course and begin placing implants with little experience. However, studies have shown that experience significantly affects the success of dental implant treatment.
PDIC founder, Dr David Norcross has attended various advanced implant dentistry programs and residencies, including a 1-year Master Clinician in Implant Dentistry program at the Global Institute for Dental Education (gIDE) and University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), clinical residencies at both the Malo Clinic in Melbourne and in Portugal (home of All-On-4) learning about advanced techniques in full arch rehabilitation using the All-On-4® technique. He is a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and Australian Society of Implant Dentistry and has restricted his clinical practice to surgical and implant dentistry.
When you choose Dr Norcross for implant surgery, your smile is in experienced hands.
All-On-4® dental implants were first developed by Nobel BioCare as a more convenient and cost-effective alternative for replacing a whole arch of teeth using four dental implants, instead of using an implant per tooth.
As pioneers of the technique, Nobel BioCare has a trademark on both the All-On-4® protocol and the Swiss-made implants used for it.
The technique involves placing two dental implants at the front of the mouth and two implants at the back in a way that avoids or reduces the need for a bone graft. The All-On-4 technique using genuine Nobel Biocare implants has unprecedented success rates of up to 98%.

Many of our patients have dental implants placed following a local anaesthetic. However, for complex procedures or anxious patients, they may opt for sleep dentistry (also known as IV sedation or twilight dentistry). We can perform any tooth extraction or implant placement at the clinic using either local sedation or IV sedation, or at Southbank Day Surgery in South Perth under general anaesthetic.
For patients with private health insurance hospital cover, the excess cost for the anaesthetist and hospital may be minimal. For patients without private health insurance, we have secured competitive rates for IV sedation with our anaesthetist, some of which may be covered by Medicare.
A dental implant is a tiny titanium post (a biocompatible material) that fuses to the jaw bone though a process called osseointegration. The integrated implant then acts as an anchor to which your dentist can attach an abutment and crown or several abutments connected to a fixed implant bridge to replace several missing teeth or all missing teeth. Dental implants can last a very long time with good oral hygiene.

Following your consultation, we can find out how much rebate you will get from your private health fund, through our HICAPS machine or give you the details you need to find out. Parts of your dental treatment may be claimable from your health insurance and by spreading the treatment over time you may be able to maximise benefits.
