Drs. Rapoport and Schuler continually strive to incorporate the latest techniques and cutting-edge technologies into patient care.

In the past, replacement of a failing tooth with a dental implant was a lengthy, multi-procedure process. Previously, it was often necessary to extract the tooth and perform bone and gum grafting. A healing period of 3 to 6 months and in some cases longer, was then required before the implant could be placed. Surgical implant placement would then be followed by an additional 3 to 6 month healing process.

Today we are often able to provide extraction and immediate implant placement in a single visit. In many cases there is no need for any bone or gum grafting and often. The procedure is incision-less, so stitches are not required. This means a quicker, more comfortable procedure and recovery process at a substantially reduced cost. The results are often esthetically superior to the conventional multi-step, multi-surgery approach.
