Why Choose a Periodontist for Your Dental Implants?
Dr. Mellas works in a state-of-the-art surgical center designed to deliver exceptional patient care using the most advanced technology available, including a 3D Cone Beam Scanner, which provides pristine, 3D images of the jaw and mouth areas for a more thorough, comprehensive examination and better preparation.
Further, Dr. Mellas is uniquely trained and qualified to offer patients a variety of anesthesia options right in our office, including intravenous sedation (an excellent option for the anxious patient to “go to sleep” for the procedure) and oral sedation.
Finally, due to the doctor's extensive additional training with 4 to 6 years of residency after dental school, Dr. Mellas is specifically trained in all aspects of dental implant surgery. His in-depth familiarity with the structure of the facial and jaw bones allows the doctor to accurately assess the likelihood of long-term dental implant success or determine whether an initial bone or soft tissue graft would make the patient a better candidate for the treatment. If a bone or soft tissue graft is necessary, he can perform the procedure in the office.
