Virtual 3D implant planning :
We use the latest 3D digital technology to virtually plan your dental implant placement. This eliminates the need for dental impressions.
Minimally invasive approach
Our method drastically reduces the risk of the procedure and also reduces healing time. In most procedures this approach allows for no incisions and no stitches.
On-site advanced technology
With our advanced technology we are able to complete all phases of the procedure in-house. This means that we are able to make the teeth here and you are able to leave with your new smile in the same visit.
All-on-4 implant option (full cosmetic permanent implant bridges)
All-on-4 is an implant option where we can replace a patient’s teeth permanently with a minimum number of implants. In some cases just 4 implants are needed. Using our 3D technology the implants can be placed with precision making the procedure easier and more comfortable than the traditional approach. This is a life changing procedure for a patient that gives them a second chance for teeth.
Metal-free implant options
We are one of only a few practices nationwide that are offering a metal-free dental implant option. The implant is made of zirconia, which is a ceramic. The material is as strong as titanium and studies show the success rate of zirconia implants is the same as titanium (above 98% at 15 years). The benefit of a zirconia implant is a biocompatible material for all.
We are dedicated to making sure you achieve your dental goals and we will maximize any dental insurance coverage you have. However, we do not want insurance companies dictating your dental treatment or your health outcomes. Our patients deserve a certain level of care, and our main goal is to ensure that we provide this.
Therefore, we do not participate with any dental plans as a preferred provider. We are considered out-of-network.
Even though we practice biologically, most of our procedures are coded in the same way as traditional dental offices. As a courtesy to you, we will file your insurance claims electronically for you. Your insurance will reimburse you directly for any services provided here in the same way as any traditional dental practice for out of network benefits. It usually takes about 2-4 weeks for the insurance company to send you the reimbursement.
In order to keep our practice costs down, and in turn keep the cost of your visits down, we ask for payment at the time of service for any of your treatment visits.
