Dental implants are a complex task — wouldn’t having a surgical guide crafted by a board-certified prosthodontist make sense?

Sometimes, a wrongly placed dental implant can cause irreversible damage. A dental implant performed without planning can lead to teeth that look odd and don’t function properly. Implant Genius was founded to help offer dental implant planning to reduce implant failure and costly mistakes.

Founded in 2019 with the vision of helping general dentists and specialists place and restore implants flawlessly, our mission is to offer meticulous planning for dental implants using the best technology possible. This helps increase patient satisfaction and simultaneously grows a dentist’s implant practice by helping deliver highly aesthetic and functional implant restorations that last. We reduce surgical times and surgical and prosthetic implant failures and enhance the predictability of implant restorations.

Our facility is centred on providing a complete digital workflow. We utilize scanners, cone beam CT, a Dental Operating Microscope, and a 3D printer. We plan implant placement for almost every implant on the planet and work with implant companies to provide certified and approved surgical guides, implants, and parts.

“I’ve been working closely with Dr. Aminzadeh for the last several years on complex and highly aesthetic cases in patients with and without implants. What amazes me is the level of accuracy, the fine detail and the aesthetic excellence of all his work. He is consistently at the forefront of technology and innovation. He clearly understands the intricacies of both surgery and prosthetics on implants and it shows on his Implant Surgical Guides that have elevated the level of accuracy in my own surgical cases. We have also recently started a research project together that will move Computer Guided Surgery to the next level globally.”

“I have collaborated with Dr. Aminzadeh in a multitude of complex surgical and restorative implant cases over the past five years. Some of these cases were specially challenging as patients presented with minimal amount of bone in their jaw or had already had implants places in their jaw in unfavourable positions lending them to be non restorable. What is unique about working with Dr Aminzadeh is that we can plan the entire case prior to the actual surgery using the cutting edge technology in virtual planning and guided surgical splint fabrication. This allows for a high level of accuracy and excellent and predictable case outcomes from both surgical and restorative perspectives. I highly recommend Dr Aminzadeh and Implant Genius to any clinician who actively places dental implants.”
