High quality Dental Implants
Video: What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are the modern solution for replacing missing teeth. A dental implant is inserted into the jaw and acts as a tooth root. It is then capped with a durable restoration such as a porcelain crown, bridge or denture.
Dr. Radu has been working with dental implants for over 25 years. He is a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists and lectures internationally to dentists and other professionals extensively on implant technology.

Our Dental Implant procedure
Once it’s been determined that implant technology is the correct path for you, Dr. Radu takes images of your mouth and jaw with his state-of-the-art cone beam CT scanner. This gives him a full 360° 3D image of your teeth and jaw area capturing all the information he needs to plan your dental implants.
Dr. Radu examines your teeth and gums and takes any other images and impressions needed. He also checks your bite so that he can even out any misalignment, as part of your treatment. This promotes your oral health as well as the durability of your final restoration.
From the images captured by the cone beam scanner, Dr. Radu uses 3D software to view and measure your bone depth, determine if any bone grafting is needed, and plot the exact type, placement and angle of your implants.
A surgical guide is created and positioned over the gums during the implant placement. This ensures the exact location and angle for the implant. He uses this technique because it significantly reduces complications to the nerves or sinus cavity that could slow down your progress.
Whenever teeth must be removed, Dr. Radu is delicate and focused. He is careful to keep you comfortable throughout the process. The implant can then be immediately placed.
Bone Grafting & Sinus Lift: Augmenting the bone level
Video: How bone grafting is done.
Sometimes the bone area is not thick enough to support a dental implant or there is a situation where a sinus cavity is sitting too low and in the path of where the dental implant needs to be placed.
In such cases, Dr. Radu will do a bone grafting or sinus lift procedure as part of the preparation. Bone and other organic material are gently introduced into the empty socket to enhance and enrich the area where the implant will be inserted.
Dr. Radu uses a modern technique as part of the bone grafting which includes plasma rich in growth factors, designed to not only provide a healthy base for the implant, but to speed your healing time.
Your comfort is important
Because Dr. Radu cares about keeping you comfortable, he’s developed a series of techniques that keep his numbing injections unnoticeable – his patients routinely tell him that they don’t even feel the injection!
A variety of amenities are provided to make your visits pleasant, such as warm towels, soft dental chairs, music, movies and refreshments. Best of all, our reassuring and understanding doctor and staff are constantly attentive to your every need and concern.
High-quality new teeth
Once the implants have been placed, Dr. Radu provides an attractive and functional temporary restoration, whether a single crown, a bridge or a denture. This is so that you don’t go without teeth during your healing time and while your permanent restoration is being fabricated.
“A week after all implants, supports and dentures were in place I went out to an unfamiliar restaurant. The hostess said ‘You know, you have a beautiful smile.’ I welled up and told her, ‘You don’t know what that means to me!’ People had often noted that I had a ‘nice’ smile, but no one ever said ‘beautiful’. Dr. Michael Radu made this happen for me and seems to have experienced as much joy about it as I have.”
