  1. Is the doctor you are considering a board-certified oral surgeon?

  3. Has the doctor you are considering for treatment ever had to turn away patients due to bone loss?
  4. How is the facility equipped to handle your care?
  5. Does the provider you are considering have additional systems in place for your safety and peace of mind?
  6. Is the quoted price all inclusive?

Is the Doctor You Are Considering a Board-certified Oral Surgeon?

In recent years, it has become more common to see general dentists advertise All-on-4® and zygomatic implants. Please be aware that these procedures are very sensitive and specialized, and they should only be performed by a board-certified oral surgeon. We strongly advise against having zygomatic implants placed by your general dentist. For your safety and to avoid unnecessary complications, zygomatic implants should only be placed by a qualified board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

When you choose New Teeth Now, you are choosing a team of highly experienced, world-renowned surgeons. They are all board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons with decades of combined experience. Our surgeons are specialists in implant dentistry and routinely perform New Teeth Now, a full mouth dental implant procedure, every day. On average, our surgical teams place 500 arches each year. In addition, a specialized team of restorative dentists supports our surgeons for every procedure. These skilled oral surgeons are dedicated to the care of New Teeth Now patients.

Will the Doctor You Meet at Your First Visit Be the Same Doctor to Perform Your Implant Procedure?

When you visit New Teeth Now for your consultation, you will meet with the board-certified oral surgeon who will be performing your implant surgery. You will receive a customized plan that caters to your specific treatment and needs. We are committed to treating every patient with dignity and respect, and to providing the highest level of personalized care from our entire staff.

Has the Doctor You Are Considering for Treatment Ever Had to Turn Away Patients Due to Bone Loss?

When you are choosing a doctor for your implant procedure, you want to know you are in the care of a highly experienced surgeon that specializes in this treatment. Many providers will turn patients away and determine that they are not a candidate for dental implants simply because they do not have the proper knowledge, training, or resources to help you. The likelihood that you will be deemed as untreatable at New Teeth Now is very slim. Our board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons take pride in the fact that our facility is one of the few in North America with the ability to successfully place zygomatic implants. These specialized implants allow our surgeons to treat those who have been told they are not dental implant candidates and eliminate the need for bone grafting.

How Is the Facility Equipped to Handle Your Care?

At New Teeth Now, our facility offers three state-of-the-art surgical suites, fully equipped with the latest in leading-edge technology, as well as 18 patient procedure rooms for general oral surgeries. We perform and manage every part of the implant process under one roof. We provide a one-of-a-kind experience with an on-site dental laboratory led by master certified dental technicians, who assist in creating your new custom teeth at our facility. Our office is uniquely designed to provide total comfort and the highest quality of care for every patient at each stage of their procedure. New Teeth Now patients rest after their procedure in our private and semi-private recovery areas. As our patients recover, family members can relax in our in-office theater and lounge. There, they can enjoy movies, beverages, and complimentary Wi-Fi.

Does the Provider You Are Considering Have Additional Systems in Place for Your Safety and Peace of Mind?

The New Teeth Now implant facility is equipped with a full-size generator in case of a power outage. We also provide on-call specialists in the event of a post-operative emergency. We partner with anesthesia professionals (CRNAs – Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists) on a daily basis. This support allows our surgeons to fully focus on your procedure while the CRNA fully focuses on monitoring your anesthesia.

Is the Quoted Price All Inclusive?

The price we quote you at New Teeth Now is all-inclusive with no hidden costs to our patients. This includes all surgical fees, anesthesia, extractions, customized first set of nonremovable teeth, a final set of customized zirconia teeth, two years maintenance, and as many implants as your surgeon prescribes.
