CBCT technology allows us to plan implant surgery virtually using software. We can then translate that information into a "surgical guide". This Guide allows us to place the implants EXACTLY where we planned them on the software. As a result, the accuracy in placing implants increases dramatically. Time and after-effects of a typical surgical procedure are significantly reduced.
The All-on-4® teeatment concept is a minimally invasive solution with a fixed full-arch restoration for high patient satisfaction.Developed by Dr. Paulo Malo in 1998 for almost 20 years of world-wide acceptance. The All-on-4® treatment concept is a cost-efficient, graftless solution that provides patients with a fixed full-arch prosthesis on the day of surgery. Characteristics include: Full-arch rehabilitation with only four implants. Two straight anterior implants and two implants tilted up to 45º in the posterior. Immediate Function (fixed provisional bridge). For patients meeting criteria for immediate loading of implants. Graftless procedure. Bone grafting is avoided by tilting the posterior implants, utilizing available bone.
Although sinus lifting has been shown to be very predictable with success rates greater than 90%, patients can be somewhat reluctant to accept this procedure due to expense and time. We adapt newer technology, such as growth factors, and noninvasive techniques, such as internal osteotome sinus lifts and/or simultaneous implant placement, have decreased wait time and increased case acceptance with great success.

"Hello, my name is Kersi. I go to Rancho Bernardo High School. I've only had my braces on for one year and a month. All of my friends have to have there braces on for two years. I had to have my braces on for eleven months less than everyone else. The staff there is very friendly and nice to others. At other dentist offices, they said it would take 24 - 36 months until I could get my braces off. I am glad we went here because they cut how long I had to have braces in half."

I saw Dr. Shih for my gum problem many years ago and I do not have an embarrassing smile anymore. I still have all my teeth; apart from one tooth. I had the bad tooth removed and Dr. Shih replaced it with an implant 5 years ago. I love my new tooth. He is the best dentist I've known.
