Specialising in dental implants

Dr Louwrens (Blackie) Swart, well-known MFOS surgeon, focuses on functional and aesthetic dental implant reconstruction. He specialises in complex cases and aesthetic dental implant reconstruction. This includes the immediate placement and loading of dental implants (if possible), bone grafting and socket preservation techniques. He also performs jaw and oral surgery.

Office-based conscious sedation as pioneered for minor oral surgery in South Africa by Dr Swart is a standard of care. This technique takes away all anxiety, making your surgical experience a pleasant one.

The solutions, quality, care and convenience that this practice offers you as a patient are aimed at helping you talk, smile and eat with confidence. We therefore invite you to come and discuss your needs with us.

Dr Swart’s private practice is in the Louis Leipoldt Medical Centre in Bellville to the north of Cape Town.
