3i dental implants

One of the leading dental implants Dr. Jonathan Penchas uses. The advantage of this implant is the easy tactile verification that the abutment is seated into the implant sub-gingival.


teeth in an hour

While Dr. Penchas believes the original teeth-in-an-hour concept was DOA (dead on arrival), the concepts of immediate loading of dental implants with interim restorations and the NobelGuide have all proven to be very helpful. He  recommends the NobelGuide as the easiest way to start your way into guided planning of implantology.


multiple implant parts – implant clones

Attachment International makes implant parts for many different implant companies, at a lower cost. While some companies make “clone” parts with lower quality of fit – this does not seem to be the case with these parts. Dr. Penchas has had great results using these parts for varioussystems.

bredent universal attachment

The bredent SKG-SG attachment is my preferred attachment for Implant Overdenture Restorations. With the correct milling techniques, these attachments offer well documented long term success with very easy follow-up and adjustment. The clips come in TEN different retention levels. This offers me great control on the final restoration over the years of service. Replacing the clips is very easy.



Economical denture teeth

We use the economical denture teeth for interim dentures and for surgical stents. They look great and to be honest, are probably work just as well as the high-priced european teeth !!



Denture information for the public

Good general information about dentures for the public. Use this to learn the basics of complete dentures Do’s and Dont’s



root lab

Creating the best prosthesis means working with the best technicians. Most prosthodontists will keep their laboratory partners as their personal secret. Working with the talented people at Root Lab has been a great experience and the results talk for themselves.The most important part of prosthodontic practice is communication. The laboratory or materials used by me may not give the same result to another prosthodontist – a tool is only good in a user hand.

dental practice web site

to my dental partner : The Houston, Texas dental group i work in has a general dentistry web site that works well. I think of it as a modern day Business card – you must have one. it is not important to have flashing video and music – our patients are intelligent enough to understand the difference between service and marketing.You may want to use some of the same design items in this site for your own site.
