We understand that each patient starts with a positive attitude, hope, and the promise of successful results.

First, our team of dentists will take time to listen to your problems and events that led to them. Acknowledgement of the emotional effect, empathy, and support is an important part of this process. Next, we’ll have an honest conversation about your current conditions, what treatments are possible, and discuss realistic expectations.

The first step is a comprehensive evaluation by our team surgeon and prosthodontist. We’ll review the history of your treatments and factors that may have led to complications with your dental implants. This team approach assures all surgical and restorative aspects of your treatments are fully considered in both diagnostics as well as designing a treatment plan.
Diagnostics For Discovery and Understanding
The second step is to obtain a full diagnostics studies to establish the severity of your complication, condition of existing implants, teeth, and surrounding bone, as well as quality and quantity of residual bone and soft tissue. This includes dental X-rays, CBCT (Cone Beam CT Scan), photos, study models, digital impressions, and provisional restorations.

The third step is a full collaboration of team specialists and review of all the diagnostic information.

What to Consider Before Your Proceed With Treatment
Treatment complications can have great impact on one’s emotional, financial, and overall well-being. You have already invested a lot of time, trust, and money into treatments that began with hopes and dreams but have turned into disappointments and frustrations. As you begin your second journey, it is important to consider what lies ahead.
Implant complications often result in loss of bone, soft tissue, and possible damage to adjacent structures. Treatment requires removal of failed implants and restorations, rebuilding of lost bone and soft tissue, and replacement with newly redesigned dental implants and restorations. The cost is often significant and more than the initial treatment. Dental or medical insurances may offer very limited benefits. It is important to consider the cost aspect and be prepared before engaging in a treatment strategy.
Management of dental implant complications are difficult and lengthy. It often requires multiple stages and many visits to gradually eliminate disease and restore health. This requires your confidence and time allocation to achieve the results you want. Following our examination and diagnostics, we will provide you with detailed treatment stage and timeline so you can prepare accordingly.
Treatments will be provided by a our team of surgeons and restorative dentists which requires your availability and commitment to your scheduled appointments. We want to make sure your re-treatment is provided in a orderly fashion so we can help you achieve the results you want.
