State-Of-The-Art Technology Improves Implant Success
Living with tooth loss can be one of the most difficult and embarrassing times of your life. Not only are you unable to eat and speak like you used to, but self-confidence in your smile and interactions with others is hindered. As a specialty periodontal office, Dr. Patrick Nicosia precisely places dental implants to replace one or many missing teeth, with the help of state-of-the-art technology. We are the only periodontal office in the area to utilize Image Guided Implant (IGI) dentistry, which uses 3D imaging and motion tracking to safely place implants in the best possible location. Nowhere else in our area will you find this unique technology that improves the success of your dental implants.
The Dental Implant Process
When preparing your jaw for dental implants, we will utilize the most advanced technology to ensure predictable and successful results. The first visit involves a thorough examination of your oral health and we will take images of your jaw using our cone beam CT (CBCT) scanner. This allows us to get a highly detailed view of your jaw structure, including bone volume, location of nerves and where surrounding tooth roots are located. Houston periodontist, Dr. Nicosia uses state-of-the-art live-time computer navigated implant placement technology to ensure accuracy and success in your dental implant surgery. Once your implant heals, your general dentist will restore it with a natural looking dental crown to blend seamlessly into your smile.

We are the only periodontal office in the Houston, TX area to feature this unique IGI computer navigated implant placement technology and can give you the dental implant results you deserve.
Dental Implant Failure
Dental implants are the most reliable solution to replace missing teeth. In fact, they offer over a 95% success rate to last for several decades. Unfortunately, despite their success, there are rare circumstances that can cause a dental implant failure. Often, it is caused by a preventable issue, like poor oral hygiene habits that have resulted in an infection. As a Houston periodontist, Dr. Nicosia can help save your smile if you act quickly. At the first sign of a problem, contact our office for an appointment.
