Contrary to what many people believe, the dental implant process is neither painful nor challenging when you choose an experienced periodontist to precisely place the implants. We utilize the latest in advanced technology and dental techniques at our office to help ensure that your implants are placed for optimal success. After your implants are placed, your general dentist or a prosthodontist will help you in restoring them with lifelike and natural crowns. Our process for placing dental implants includes:
Dr. Lopez strives to build a lasting and personal relationship with every patient who comes into our office. We want to achieve your smile goals and will always listen to your concerns or worries. We will explain our process and work with you to make dental implants as affordable for your budget as possible.
Our office technology allows us to provide you with improved accuracy, minimally invasive care and an easier healing process after implants have been placed. After a detailed x-ray with our low radiation cone beam CT scanner, we can create digital dental implant guides that allow Dr. Lopez to place your implants with extreme precision. This removes all the guesswork during surgery, making the actual placement of implants easy.
On the day of your surgery, you will be sedated with a local anesthetic and nitrous oxide to help relax you and block sensations of pain. Once you are comfortable, Dr. Lopez will place your implants using the surgical guide in a quick and effective manner. Before you know it, your surgery will be complete, and you’ll be sent home to rest. Dr. Lopez always follows up with our patients with personal phone calls every evening to check up on you and make sure you have no problems.
