Delivering the highest quality care and life-changing smiles for over 40 years

I began my journey into implant surgery with one goal in mind – to effect positive change for my patients. After decades of practicing in this field, I can say without question that I’ve accomplished what I set out to do.  From your initial consultation at our spa-like offices, to your very first introduction to the brand new you, I cannot wait to help you along your journey too.

Gingival Grafting


Gingival (or Gum) Grafting is a relatively common procedure performed by periodontists and specially trained dentists. This quick and relatively pain-free procedure is recommended for patients that have moderate to severe gum recession. Teeth that are exposed at the roots can have a “long,” darkened appearance. Not only can this cause an aesthetic issue, but it also has the potential to negatively impact your overall oral health. Healthy gum tissue functions as a protective barrier to our teeth—when they lose this protection, teeth can become overly sensitive to temperature and even cause pain when you eat or drink. Bacteria can also enter the roots, which ultimately leads to tooth loss!


Grafting procedures are typically carried out under local anesthesia. Gum tissue is harvested from one of many areas: it can be from somewhere near the effected area, somewhere from the hard palate, or even can be donated tissue from another person. There are several methods of grafting this harvested tissue, including “free gingival grafting” which takes about 45 minutes to complete. Post surgery, a soft diet and antibiotic course is recommended for about a week while the tissues fully heal. The end result is a confident and healthy gum line, free from recession or disease.

Bone Grafting


Gum disease can manifest in a variety of ways, including bad breath, pain while chewing, tooth sensitivity, bleeding or swollen gums, loose teeth and much more. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to a more serious condition known as periodontitis. Bacteria and toxins enter and attack at the gums, ultimately reaching the tissues that hold our teeth in place and can result in bone loss at the jaw.


Osseous (Bone) grafting is a procedure that facilitates the growth of new bone in areas of the jaw that experience bone loss due to gum disease. Much like Gingival Grafting utilizes healthy tissue placed over an affected area, Osseous grafting makes use of harvested bone grafts placed in areas with severe defects in order to stimulate healthy tissue regeneration. The overall procedure is quite painless, often being likened to the feeling of a deep-cleaning. The end result is a reduction in the spread of bacteria, prevention of future bone loss, and regaining your confident, healthy smile.

Tooth Extraction


One of the oldest and most common procedures in Dentistry, Tooth Extraction is the complete removal of a tooth at the root for a wide variety of reasons. Dentists and oral surgeons will recommend an extraction procedure for issues as simple as cavities or infections, or more commonly for our practice, in preparation of dental prosthesis or implants.


Extraction can be considered “simple” or “surgical.” Simple extractions pertain to teeth that are visible above the gum line and offer the ability to be removed in one piece. Surgical extractions are slightly more complicated, involving removal of gum tissue, bone, or removing the targeted tooth in stages. Our practice can perform extractions with either local or general anesthetic to make the entire process as comfortable to the patient as possible.
