Dental Implants

Dental implants are the single, strongest, most predictable restoration for missing teeth.  Featuring up to a 98% 5 year survival rate in the lower arch, it is stronger and more practical than a porcelain or composite bridge.  It is more expensive, but may have an indefinite life expectancy if you effectively care for it.

Patient testimonials

I have received excellent professional care at Clarence Tam’s dental clinic yesterday.  I am pleased to provide this testimony.

Clarence Tam is  thorough and  meticulous and truly an artist when it comes to restorative dentistry. Communication is ever-present; questions and concerns were addressed by her as they arose I felt very comfortable and confident in all facets of my procedure.

I am indeed pleased that a well-sealed, structurally-sound and aesthetically pleasing result was achieved.
