Our Dental Implant Process

Dr. Andrew Ferrier brings precision and skill to the art of replacing your teeth and recreating your smile. Before treatment, our team considers more than just your individual implant, but how your new tooth will help you eat and speak confidently again. In order to determine just how your dental implant will interact with your bite, surrounding teeth and overall health, we apply leading-edge techniques to our process.

Diagnostic Phase

We begin by using the latest imaging technology to conveniently capture detailed, 3D images of your mouth. We consider your bone density, the location of the nerves in your jawbone and the exact dimensions of your jaw. Using computer-guided implant placement software a detailed map is created, identifying the ideal location, depth and angle to place your dental implant in order to ensure long-term stability.

Placing Your Implants

Each dental implant is comprised of three parts: the post, the crown and the abutment that connects them. Working with a skilled surgical specialist, each post is surgically placed into your jaw inspiring new bone growth and offering unrivaled tooth replacement stability.v
