It’s important to have all of your teeth so you can properly bite, chew, and speak. Teeth roots stimulate the jaw bone, keeping it healthy. When teeth are missing, the jaw bone does not receive stimulation and deteriorates over time, resulting in sagging facial features. By replacing missing teeth with dental implants, you keep the jaw healthy and prevent bone loss.
Replacing missing teeth also prevents oral health issues, such as:
Every smile is different, and we offer a variety of implant-based options to serve your specific needs. During the first visit, we will discuss your goals for treatment, your budget, and examine your oral health to determine the right type of dental implant therapy.
Our team will walk you through each step of your oral surgery treatment so you know what to expect. First, we will take 3D scans of your mouth, which your surgeon uses to design your custom surgical plan. We will also talk about your anesthesia options and provide you with instructions to follow before and after surgery.
On the day of surgery, your surgeon will administer the anesthesia. Once you are comfortable, your surgeon will make an incision in the gums and insert the dental implant posts. Your prearranged driver will take you home, and your recovery will begin.
It will take a few months for the implants to heal. After this happens, we will uncover them and attach abutments, which connect the post and crown. We will also place a temporary crown for you to wear. It will take several more weeks for the gum tissues to heal and once ready, your dentist will place your final crown. You will be able to eat comfortably with no dietary restrictions, speak confidently, and show off your beautiful new smile!

Administered through a syringe, a local anesthetic numbs only the surgical site. The effects can last up to several hours. We often pair local anesthesia with another type of anesthesia or sedation.
Commonly known as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is inhaled through a mask. It provides mild sedation and pain relief and is often combined with other options, such as oral sedation, for optimal effect.
General anesthesia will render you totally unconscious. This option is reserved for complex surgeries such as orthognathic surgery or facial reconstruction.
Your surgeon will inject the sedative into the vein, which will render you into a semi-conscious state. Also called twilight sedation or twilight dentistry, this option is ideal for extensive procedures or highly anxious patients.
