For nearly 10 years now I have had the opportunity to place dental implants with the guidance of 3D CBCT along with careful clinical treatment planning. I have special interests in keeping up with tooth loss with dental implants in an immediate placement fashion with minimal to no bone grafting. This approach to dental implants has proved to be, in my opinion, the most efficient with regard to finance, overall treatment length, also reducing chair time while not compromising results. In fact, I feel that my best results have come from this algorithm rather some of the more traditional algorithms. This is all based on primary stability and trusting the science of bone physiology and osseo-integration. I feel I have 'backed in' over the years to a very straight forward and applicable algorithm to the practice of implant dentistry. I have spent much time in a viewing implant dentistry through the restorative doctors eyes. After all, that is what will matter in the end...how these restorations appear to us, our patients, and how they function over time! Implants are hear to stay and only improve and I am excited to be involved in the progress and evolution of the dental implant.
I truly look forward to working and learning with all of you!
