One dentist, one location, one day to a whole new you!

Get back to living the life you want with ‘teeth in a day’ implants

If you’ve lived with missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures, you know the struggle of eating some of your favourite foods, or feeling uncomfortable sharing a big, happy smile.

The good news is that in just one day, you can enjoy a whole new you!

Thanks to a one-of-a-kind Nanaimo centre, gone are the days when implants required multiple visits over a course of days or weeks to different dental professionals to secure your new smile.

Full service from one location

Nanaimo’s Dr. Robert Wolanski began placing dental implants in 1992 at his Lakeside Dental Clinic.

Expanding his practice in 2004 with the full-service Vancouver Island Implant Centre, Dr. Wolanski offers “teeth in a day,” focusing his implant services on the pillars of consultation, surgery, restoration and maintenance.

The Vancouver Island Implant Centre offers clients the ease and comfort of undergoing the entire implant process at one location. From the initial consultation to grafting and surgery using premium implants, everything is done on-site by Dr. Wolanski and his experienced team. The in-house dental CAT Scan also saves patients time and money, and by showing a three-dimensional image of the jaw structure, allows for ideal implant placement.

With a focus on comfort, the centre is also the only Nanaimo location offering intravenous sedation, Dr. Wolanski notes.

Why implants?

Available for either single or multiple teeth, implants not only offer greater security – they are the closest thing to your natural teeth – but they also prevent future bone loss in your jaw that comes from lack of teeth or simply using dentures, Dr. Wolanski explains. That means a healthier and more attractive smile now and down the road.

“The innovations we have seen in implant technology, with both removable and non-removable implant-stabilized dentures, have brought patients better oral, physical and mental health. Not only can our patients once again eat the foods they love, but they no longer feel the need to hide their smile,” he says.

As part of the centre’s ongoing education initiatives, the public is invited to take in free monthly lectures where they can learn more about the process. Visit online at Vancouver Island Implant Centre or Lakeside Dental Clinic or call 250-756-1666.
