Start with a Healthy Foundation

If you have made the decision to move forward with a dental implant procedure to replace missing teeth, we may need to do some prep work to ensure successful, lasting results. Our team will need to assess how much available bone tissue you have, whether you have signs of gum disease, and evaluate your overall oral health to make sure dental implants are right for you.


Procedures Before Dental Implants

We may need to prepare the gums and bone tissue to accommodate for dental implants. Dr. David Krishingner may recommend any of the following procedures as part of your tooth replacement treatment plan:

  • Bone grafting with piezosurgery
  • Sinus lift
  • Tooth extractions
  • Ridge augmentation
  • Ridge preservation
  • Guided tissue regeneration

Innovative Technologies for Optimal Results

Dr. Krishingner uses a 3D imaging device to prepare for bone grafts and guided tissue regeneration to identify the ideal dental implant site. Our office is equipped with innovative technologies that help us perform a variety of procedures with a great degree of precision, control, and accuracy.

What to Expect

No matter how many treatments and procedures you need, we will do everything we can to make your procedure as comfortable as possible. We offer sedation dentistry for those who need help feeling calm and relaxed during treatment. We make every effort to make sure you are numb throughout the procedure and can look forward to a quick recovery with minimal discomfort.


Your Dental Implant Treatment Plan

Some patients can proceed with the dental implant procedure without any additional procedures but many need to undergo some type of procedure to prepare for dental implant placement, especially if the tooth or teeth have been missing for a period of time. Whether this involves adding more bone tissue, reshaping the gums, or creating more space in the sinus cavity, we use the latest techniques to ensure the best possible outcome.
