The most effective solutions for replacing missing teeth
Dental implants are one of the most effective solutions for replacing missing teeth. If you are a good candidate for dental implants, Dr. Patrick Moriarty may need to perform procedures that prepare your teeth, gums and bone to receive the implant. These procedures are designed to ensure proper placement and also lengthen the life of your implant.
We are here to make sure your investment in your smile pay off and will create a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses any problems with the bone or gum tissue before we move forward with dental implant placement.
Preparing for dental implants
Since dental implant surgery is a more extensive procedure, we encourage patients to take some time to learn about how dental implants work and explore options, including mini dental implants. We may recommend one or more dentistry procedures to prepare the gums and teeth for dental implants. This can help ensure a more successful end result. We do offer sedation dentistry to make the entire experience that much more manageable for those concerned with discomfort or those with anxiety. Get the smile you deserve without fear!
Dental implant preparation procedures
Dr. Moriarty has successfully placed over 500 dental implants over his career and knows exactly what types of procedures need to be performed before placement for optimal results. Some of the dental implant prep procedures we offer include:
- Tooth Extractions
- Bone Grafting (including Piezosurgery)
- Ridge Augmentation
- Ridge Preservation
- Sinus Lift
- Plasma Rich Growth Factors (faster tissue healing)
Implant dentistry costs
We understand many patients are concerned about cost when undergoing more extensive dental procedures. While it may be initially more costly to pay for preparation procedures for dental implants, you will have the peace of mind knowing that the implant was placed properly and you are at little to no risk of complications. We need to make sure the bone and gums are in the best possible state of health for a positive outcome.
