Safe, Precise, & Comfortable Dental Implant Care to Restore Your Smile

Repair Natural Function

By receiving dental implants, you can restore normal function to your smile. Dental implants act as artificial tooth roots, securing your crown, bridge, or denture in place so you can eat and speak naturally.

Expert-Level Implant Placement

With extensive training in oral surgery, Dr. Indovina can safely and precisely place your dental implants. This creates an exceptionally durable foundation and helps minimize your risk of complications.

Comfortable Treatment 

You have the option to receive nitrous oxide or intravenous (IV) sedation to help you relax. Additionally, we will apply a local anesthetic to the numb the treatment area for your comfort. 

High-Quality Materials

Additionally, Dr. Indovina uses a variety of the highest quality materials, including ceramic implant posts and abutments made of materials other than titanium to accommodate all of his patients' needs.

Using the Latest Technology For Precise Implant Placement

Dr. Indovina has invested in the most advanced technology to use during both preparation and the procedure itself. This includes a cone beam scanner which can produce highly detailed images and a laser which allows for gentle treatment. With this technology, we can minimize trauma to surrounding tissues and reduce recovery time. When necessary, the doctor can also create a surgical guide to use during the procedure to ensure your implants at the optimal position in your bite.

Several Factors ​Can Impact  Your Candidacy for Dental Implants

Jawbone Atrophy

Jawbone recession can begin quickly once a tooth has fallen out. Without timely treatment, your jawbone can substantially shrink. For proper support, sufficient jawbone tissue is needed to anchor dental implants. However, if you have suffered jawbone atrophy, Dr. Indovina may be able to perform bone grafting to restore the tissue.

Medical Conditions

Certain health conditions such as diabetes or autoimmune disease can increase your risk of complications and dental implant failure. However, proper management of these conditions can usually restore your candidacy for dental implants

Lifestyle Habits

Smoking and alcohol consumption can impede your body's ability to heal, which can contribute to complications. As such, patients who heavily smoke or drink may not be good candidates for dental implants. However, your doctor can help you plan to stop tobacco or alcohol consumption before and after surgery to minimize your risk.

Dental Implant Techniques Performed by Dr. Indovina

The doctor performs specialized implant techniques, including All-on-4® and mini dental implants. All-on-4 is a popular implant option that uses about four to six strategically placed implants to support restorations that replace an entire arch of teeth. Additionally, patients can enjoy a fully restored smile, the same day as their implant placement surgery.

Mini dental implants are often recommended for patients who have suffered jawbone atrophy as they are smaller in both height and width than traditional implants. Consequently, they do not need as much bone to provide a sturdy foundation for your restoration. During your consultation, Dr. Indovina will recommend the best type of dental implant for you.

While dental implants may be more expensive than traditional restorative solutions, they are an investment in your oral health that can save you money in the long run
