General G4 Implant Solution

Because you are prescribed medication 1 week prior to surgery, and the expertise level of our Doctor’s, Patients report that there is little pain regardless of the number of extractions, only moderate soreness. Any discomfort will generally subside in 72 hours or less. Flying or moderate activity is Ok 24 hours after surgery.

Our licensed Anesthesiologists will administer and monitor your conscious sedation. Conscious is a combination of medicines to help you relax (a sedative) and to block pain (an anesthetic) during a medical or dental procedure. You will remain in a “twilight” state, and can respond to commands, but remember little of the procedure. Conscious sedation lets you feel no pain, recover quickly, and return to your everyday activities soon after your procedure.

  • Antibiotics:
    Amoxicillin (Amoxil, Trimox) 500mg 21 tabs
    Take one tab three times per day starting two days before surgery until finished.

If allergic to Penicillin (Non-Anaphylactic Reaction)
Cefaclor (Ceclor, second generation Cephalosporin) 500mg 21 tabs
Take one tab three times per day starting two days before surgery until finished.

If allergic to penicillin (Anaphylactic Reaction: hives, itching, angioedema, respiratory distress)
Clindamycin 150 mg (Cleocin) 21 tabs
Take one tab three times per day starting two days before surgery until finished.

  • Anti-inflammatory:
    Decadron(Dexamethasone) 4.0mg-5 tabs Contraindicated for diabetic patients
    2 tabs day before surgery
    1 ½ tabs morning of surgery
    1 tab second morning
    ½ tab third morning

Diabetic Patients will be prescribed:
Motrin(Ibuprofen) 600mg 10 tablets-Take one tab one hour before surgery and then one tab three times a day(1 every 8 hours) until gone.

  • Peridex (Chlorhexdine Gluconate) 16 ounce bottle-Rinse capful twice a day for 30 seconds. Start one week before surgery and resume after surgery for one more week.

The surgical portion of the procedure is approximately 2 to 2.5 hours. The lab portion, while you are relaxing, takes another 2 hours. 

If you are diabetic your blood sugar should be controlled and we will not perform the surgery if the A1-C is above 7, because the chances of Implant failure goes up to 30%.

You must stop nicotine use 30 days prior to your surgery. Nicotine in any form has been shown to reduce the blood flow in the mouth. Smoking is detrimental to implants, and voids all warranties.

It is preferable not to have the teeth extracted prior to surgery, because when our Dentists perform extractions it gives them a reference on where to place the implants. Also tooth extraction should be done very atraumatically in order to preserve an adequate amount of bone. Extractions are included in the cost of the G4 Implant Solution.

This is the least invasive procedure which is done under sedation. After extraction and implant placement, the bridge will be sitting on implants only and NOT on the soft tissue. The gum will be completely closed up after surgery therefore there is no socket exposed and no dry socket.. Patients are placed on anti- inflammatory medication prior to surgery, therefore there is no pain or swelling. 9 out of 10 patients do not even take any pain medication after this procedure.

smile guideWe will go over multiple smile library’s both print and digital, go over every shade, and simulate your new smile digitally for your approval. We also encourage you to bring photos of either your ideal smile, or your actual teeth (when they were healthy). Since we use advanced digital design and CAD/CAM we are able to incorporate as many of these aspects as possible; as long as we are still able to provide function.Bleached-extension

90% of Patients that have been told they are not candidates for traditional Dental Implant options are candidates for this procedure. This procedure uses the frontal area of the jaw and in most cases requires no bone grafting or sinus augmentation.

Considering the fact that the frontal part of the jaw has the more dense bone, instead of the conventional method of placing the Implant straight into the bone (which can require sinus lift and bone grafting) and minimum 6 to 9 months waiting time and healing time, this technique differentiates by placing the back Implants at an angle. Not only do you benefit from the dense bone in the frontal part of the jaw, but we can place a longer Implant, with a much less invasive procedure, without entering into the sinus cavity on the upper arch.
