Quick Surgery, No Hidden Fees
Typically, with a well-fitted surgical guide, implant surgery can be a very quick and efficient procedure. The fee for implant placement includes the implant itself with cover screws/healing caps and all necessary surgical equipment for the procedure.
Quality Dental Materials That Last A Lifetime
Our custom-fitted abutment (the piece that screws into the implant) and crown (the tooth-colored portion that fits onto the abutment) are made of the most high-quality and strongest materials available. Your dental implants should be engineered to last a lifetime and should be designed with function and aesthetics in mind so that your new dental implants feel as much like a natural tooth as possible. One-size-fits-all components may seem like a great deal upfront but may lead to frustration and dissatisfaction for years to come.
Better Technology for a Safer Dental Procedure
We use Cone-Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) Scan and Surgical Guide
Prior to implant placement, our doctors always consult a 3D scan of your jaw bone when planning for the procedure. Avoiding critical structures such as nerves, other tooth roots, and sinus cavities is imperative, and the utilization of a surgical guide aids us in the safe placement of your dental implants. Ideal orientation of the implant allows us and laboratory to fabricate a properly-oriented crown for you. This means your implant will be easier to keep clean and easier to maintain in the long run.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can all of my teeth be replaced with dental implants?
Yes, all of your teeth can be replaced with dental implants.
Am I a good candidate for a dental implant?
If you’re missing at least a single tooth all the way up to all of your teeth, you’re definitely a good candidate for a dental implant.
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants can last as long as you take good care of them. Luckily, they’re not susceptible to dental disease or decay like your natural teeth, but your gum health is still vital for the success of your implant. Keep good care of your gums and your implants will last.
Can you remove dental implants?
Unlike dentures, you can’t remove implants from your mouth. This is good as it allows for a look and feel that is significantly closer to natural teeth.
Are dental implants painful?
No, dental implants won’t be painful because the procedure is typically administered under anesthesia.
How long does a dental implant take to be implanted?
Our office can normally be done with the procedure in less than an hour, but it depends on the placement and number of implants.
Thin Gums? No Problem.
In some cases, a patient may have extremely thin or delicate gum tissue in the area planned for implant restoration. To have a successful implant placement and a comfortable implant crown, the gingival thickness and toughness are extremely important. If we determine that you have inadequate tissue for successful dental implants, then soft tissue grafting can be completed by our doctors as part of the implant treatment plan.
Enjoy Quicker Recovery After Implants
For many surgical procedures, especially those with active infection and higher infection risk, we utilize Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) and Plasma (PRP) derived from the patient’s own blood to improve healing of the jaw bone and soft tissues. A small blood draw is done at the beginning of the appointment, and the fibrin and plasma are extracted via our DUO(r) centrifuge. The concentration of platelets and growth factors within the PRF and PRP aids in the regeneration of the tissues after surgery, making for a quicker and easier recovery for the patient.

Patient Education and Consent
If there are complications before, during, or after surgery which may necessitate additional procedures, these needs are always discussed with the patient before they are completed. Any time a procedure becomes more complicated or costly, we always take our time to educate the patient about what is happening and why we need to change our course of treatment. It is the patient’s right to accept or refuse any treatment that we present, with the understanding that all decisions can have an effect on our mutual satisfaction with the patient’s individual outcome.
