Our practice utilizes contemporary technology to achieve safe, lasting and esthetic surgical outcomes.  We provide guided Implant placement and guided orthognathic surgery with custom facial plating systems. We customize surgery to each patients’ individual needs.  

IMPLANTS

Our practice uses state of the art implant technology.  We work with multiple implant systems which allows for selection of different implants for varying clinical scenarios.  Our implants come in high-grade Titanium and Zirconium and we only purchase implants from respected and time tested companies. 

We perform immediate placement, which means tooth extraction and implant placement in the same visit.  If you are a candidate for immediate implant placement it can save a considerable amount of time in getting to your final restoration. 

We regularly preform full arch dental implant reconstruction.  In addition, we are one of few practices that place zygomatic dental implants. 

MATERIALS

We offer multiple material options for bone and tissue grafting, and biologic materials to improve healing. Our bone grafting options are autologous (from the jaw or hip), allograft (human donor), and xenograft (bovine or cow bone).  For tissue, we use autologous from the roof of the mouth or tuberosity, human donor, and synthetic lab-based tissue options. We use platelet-rich plasma and platelet-rich fibrin as necessary to provide additional growth factors to surgical sites.
