General Information

Dental Implants


Today’s dental implant technologies offer you a safe, successful and proven method for installation of permanent, biocompatible replacement teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants can successfully resolve many problems associated with tooth loss that previously required replacement by removable dentures or more invasive oral surgery.

Innovative Treatment Planning


Dr. Johnson uses state-of-the-art diagnostic tools when planning dental implant surgery. These include the SimPlant® software planning system and I-CAT 3-D dental imaging, which is conducted at a local imaging center. The accuracy afforded by SimPlant and I-CAT eliminates guesswork and helps Dr. Johnson place implants at the precise location, angle and depth for the most successful outcome possible. He offers Implant Direct titanium implants, which are FDA-approved.


If you lack a sufficient level of bone in your jaw, Dr. Johnson will recommend a bone grafting procedure, which he performs. His capabilities also include soft-tissue grafting to provide you with an attractive, youthful gumline.

The Many Benefits of Implants


Patients have the option of replacing one tooth, several teeth and even complete dentures with an implant-supported tooth, an implant-supported bridge or several implant-supported teeth. Another key benefit of dental implants is they can stabilize existing dentures and increase their chewing strength. Since implants feel like and function as natural teeth, they make it easy for you to eat, speak and smile comfortably and with confidence. Dental implants can restore your self-esteem and improve your quality of life.
