Welcome to Sunshine Coast Dental ImplantsRestoring beautiful, natural smiles
At Sunshine Coast Dental Implants, our skills and expertise will give you the dental implants that are right for you. Dr Sandra Short.
Until quite recently, the clinical options for replacing missing or failing teeth were limited to dentures or, where healthy teeth were available, bridges. Even today, many people who have lost all or some of their teeth are still resigned to a life of removable dentures simply because they don’t realise that a dental implant solution can be more comfortable, more attractive functionally superior – and permanent.
Dental implants exploit the natural properties of bone, preserving it in a way that all-too-removable dentures simply cannot. And they feel and function just like your natural teeth.
Our implant restorations range from individual implant/crowns to the revolutionary ‘Bridge-on-four’. Whatever your situation, there’s an implant-based solution that will spare you the discomfort and awkwardness of dentures, give you a great smile, and allow you to eat what you want.

Our Dental Implant Services
Sunshine Coast Dental Implants is dedicated to the replacement lost and missing teeth with durable, aesthetically pleasing implant-based crowns or bridges. Dental implant technology and clinical practice have advanced to the stage where we can provide a solution for practically every case. Healthy gums and adequate bone volume are a precondition for successful implant treatment, however, so we always start with a thorough examination. Then we discuss the options, costs, and the clinical procedure you will experience.
Find out more about how one or more dental implants combined with crowns and bridges, can help fill those gaps and avoid the need for dentures.
The revolutionary dental implant-supported permanent denture that looks, acts and feels like your own teeth. In a few cases, a temporary bridge can be fitted at the same time as the implants are placed, and soft food can be eaten immediately.
