Services / Dental Implants

Dental implants are a highly effective way of replacing missing teeth, they provide long lasting, comfortable and aesthetic options for replacement of teeth. Dental implants can also be used to anchor loose and uncomfortable dentures. They are a man made substitute for the tooth root onto which a crown, bridge or denture is attached.

Dr Philip Holmes has undergone extensive training in the field of dental implants and completed his Masters Degree thesis on the topic of dental implants in London. Phil has experience in both the surgical and restorative aspects of dental implant surgery, providing an invaluable insight into the entire dental implant procedure.

Since returning to Tauranga Phil has focussed on a team based approach to dental implant therapy allowing him to concentrate on the restorative aspects of dental implant therapy. Phil works in close association with Dr David Chrisp and Dr John Bridgman of Tauranga Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery. The team at Tauranaga Oral and Maxillofacial surgery are highly trained in the field of dental implant surgery. Surgery is completed in their modern facility under intravenous sedation. Following surgery and an adequate healing time you will return to see Dr Philip Holmes to have your implant restored.
