Q. What should patients know about you as a dentist?
A. My commitment is to providing advanced cosmetic and implant dentistry unlike anywhere else to patients who value quality, longevity, beauty and functionality. I am dedicated to treating patients in a comfortable clinical environment that is warm and caring, immaculately clean and offers the latest dental technology. I am determined to exceed expectations, and always put the health and well-being of my patients first.
Q. What should patients know about dental implants?
A. Today the standard of care is all about computer-guided placement of your dental implants. Our technology reduces procedure time and trauma along with dramatically reducing complications. Because of that we can usually attach permanent teeth to your implants at the same time they are placed!
Imagine being able to eat the foods you want at the restaurants you want and the health benefits associated with better nutrition and digestion.
Q. What should patients expect when they arrive at your office to get permanent teeth fastened to dental implants?
A. We will take the time to listen to your needs, concerns and desires in order to gain a complete understanding of what you want to achieve. We pledge to provide an environment where your safety, comfort and well-being come first.
Q. How long does it take to get permanent teeth fastened to dental implants?
A. Most treatments require only a few visits: First is the consultation, examination and records appointment. Second is the treatment discussion consultation. Third is a three-to-four hour appointment to place the dental implants and permanent teeth.
Q. Does it hurt?
A. Of course any surgical procedure will have post-operative pain, soreness, minor swelling and transient bruising. However, the procedure itself is painless. Most people will want to receive mild to moderate sedation along with local anesthetics. You will think you slept through the whole thing and wake up with permanent teeth! By the next day you will be able to comfortably eat most anything you like.
