Get Your Smile Back

with State-of-the-Art Dental Implant Treatment

Dental implants are the ideal treatment option for replacing broken-down or missing teeth. They look, feel and function just like natural teeth.  They give you the ability to chew and smile confidently once again. 

Using advanced 3D technology, Dr. Wenicur replaces teeth comfortably and efficiently with dental implants. Her extensive implant knowledge and experience allow her to provide you with aesthetic new teeth that are long-lasting and strong.

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root made of titanium that is placed in the jawbone and topped by a crown, dental bridge or denture. Because they look, act and feel natural, they let you talk, chew and exert pressure, just like with real teeth.

Because implants are in the bone, chewing stimulates bone growth, preventing the collapsed, wrinkled look that occurs from progressive bone loss as a result of dentures and missing teeth.

Dental implants are an ideal solution for almost anyone who is suffering from missing teeth or teeth that are beyond saving.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Implants let you talk, chew and exert pressure, just like with natural teeth.

  • Implant-supported dentures have no false palate, which means you can taste and enjoy your food.

  • Implants are the strongest and longest-lasting replacement for missing or broken-down teeth.

  • Implants don’t require alteration to the structure of adjacent teeth, as with dental bridges.

  • Implants help preserve bone in the jaw. They prevent the collapsed, wrinkled look from the progressive bone loss that occurs with dentures and missing teeth.

Skilled, Friendly Implant Dentist

Dr. Wenicur’s skill in placing implants combined with her knowledge of aesthetics, tooth and jaw function and her use of the latest technology allow her to provide you with the entire implant treatment in one office. And thanks to her training and experience, she can treat even very complex implant cases.

Dr. Wenicur has an Ivy League educational background and has completed over 700 hours of continuing education courses in implant planning and surgery as well as bone grafting. Dr. Wenicur also completed a year-long fellowship in dental implant surgery, and is an active member of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.


3D Treatment Planning

Dr. Wenicur begins treatment by using her CT scanner to collect detailed 3D images of your entire oral anatomy. The information is then relayed to special software that she uses to plan the exact position and angle of the implant or implants to be placed.


Surgery with the X-Guide®

The 3D images created by the CT scanner are also used with Dr. Wenicur’s cutting-edge X-Guide system. The X-Guide provides real-time 3D views of the implant during surgery and shows Dr. Wenicur the precise surgical path, like a road map. For you, this means a faster, more comfortable experience.

Minimally Invasive Treatment

Dr. Wenicur is careful to remove only a minimal amount of gum tissue when placing an implant. This leads to very little post-op discomfort and easy healing. When bone grafting is needed, she uses protein-rich growth factors which decrease inflammation and make healing faster and more comfortable.

Beautiful New Teeth

If you are receiving implants in the aesthetic area, you will be able to leave the day of surgery with temporary tooth replacements thanks to Dr. Wenicur’s CEREC same-day crowns system. Back teeth are subject to stronger chewing forces and need to heal before a tooth can be placed.
The final restoration is created from aesthetic and durable materials, and is placed once the implant has fully integrated in the jaw. You then have fully functional, beautiful teeth.

Comfortable, Affordable Care

To ensure you are relaxed throughout procedures, Dr. Wenicur offers oral sedation and nitrous oxide as well as blankets, pillows and earplugs.

We keep pricing competitive and offer financing through CareCredit® and LendingClub to make it easy for you to get the dental care you need.
