How many dental implant procedures have you done?
Inceasing by the week, our number of dental implant patients is expanding exponentially. So far our success rate is 100%! We only perform implant procedures for cases in which the doctor has determined – through imaging, dignostics, and analysis – a very high probability of success.
We also employ amazing new technology – including imaging equipment and software – that allows us to place implants with an accuracy and confidence that was not previously possible.
Why should someone choose you over the competition?
Dr. Davis is precise, honest, and treats each patient and each case with equal high importance. On top of that, Cruz Davis Family and Cosmetic Dentistry is comfortable, professional, and friendly.
Where do most of your patients hear about your clinic?
You’d have to ask them…but from our overwhelmingly positive online reviews, we think that our patients think as highly of us as we do. We value our patients and always strive for improvement and perfection in the healthcare services we offer.
What procedures do you typically recommend and perform?
The details of a patient’s treatment is determined on a case-by-case basis through proper examination by the dentist and using the latest imaging and diagnostic techniques.
What type of implants does your clinic use?
All of our dental technology and supplies are standardly used in the United States and Canada and are deemed safe based on research and experience. We only use high-quality materials in our office, such as medical grade titanium for dental implants.
Please give me a summary of the steps in the process of getting an implant at your clinic.
For a fuller explanation, please make a consultation appointment. To give a very simplified summary: first we do a consultation with basic imagining for evaluative purposes. Next we would do a much more detailed imaging, and the doctor would use these images with special dental implant computer software to design the treatment that will fit the patient’s anatomy precisely. Patients often need bone grafts before the implant is placed, and the growth of the new bone or membrane can take several months.
Our doctor performs all procedures in his comfortable and clean private office in northwest Gainesville Florida. All instruments and work spaces have been cleaned or sterilized to the dental industry standard. For dental implant surgeries, the dentist will be assisted by one or two assisstants who will help make the procedure go more quickly and smoothly.
How much do your procedures cost?
Please inquire with our office as the fees will depend on the exact procedures that will take place, and this will vary from case to case.
What payment methods do you accept?
Cash, Check, Credit Card, CareCredit
How many appointments are required to get one or two implants?
Again, the details of the treatment will depend on the individual case. The doctor would usually place both implants in the same appointment.
What do advise your patients to do if they have a problem with their implant?
If the patient has a defective implant or if the doctor made a mistake in the procedure, we will correct the mistake at no additional cost to the patient.
