Dr. Shigley has the compassion, expertise, and technology to provide you with an amazing dental implant treatment experience! He has placed thousands of dental implants in patients that benefited from his expertise, from single to full arch. Dr. Shigley received advanced training at several prestigious institutions and participates in ongoing courses to stay up to date on the latest dental implant technologies and techniques. He leverages superior materials and advanced technologies including dental implant surgery guided by precision digital software. He also has experience placing zygomatic implants, a more complex protocol requiring advanced oral surgery skills.
During your first visit, you’ll meet Dr. Shigley and the rest of the implant team. During this visit, we’ll review your medical history and ask you about any conditions and medications you’re taking (prescription and over-the-counter drugs and supplements). We’ll also discuss the steps involved in getting dental implants and answer all your questions so you know what to expect throughout the entire dental implant surgery process.
Our newly renovated, state-of-the-art practice is equipped with advanced technologies to help make your treatment process smooth and predictable. We’ll take a 3D image with our CBCT scanner to assess the health of your teeth, gums, and bone structure. This imaging is integral to precisely planning dental implant placement and also essential for creating the custom surgical guide we rely on during your procedure. To ensure your smile lasts the rest of your life, we meticulously plan your surgery — from determining if you need bone grafts to deciding on the best placement and angle for each dental implant.
Dr. Shigley takes the time to address your concerns, discuss your goals, and complete diagnostics because he understands your goals and needs are unique to you. All of these components together provide an in-depth picture to help him develop a customized treatment plan. Although we may present you with multiple options, we always use the highest-quality, evidence-based protocols and materials that will provide optimal oral function and natural smile aesthetics for decades.
We think everyone deserves all the benefits that come with a restored smile, so we partner with CareCredit® and Proceed Finance and can help you apply for these options. At your first consultation, we encourage you to ask our financial coordinator about these easy-to-use financing options to help make dental implants more affordable and within reach.
