The Best Dental Implant Results Start with the Best
While Dental Implant placement is a team effort between an oral and maxillofacial surgeon and a restorative dentist, it's important to consider training, expertise, and experience when choosing the right doctor for the right step in the process. Our doctors, Dr. Tokar, Dr. Zats, and Dr. Gefon, are oral surgeons, who are, in fact, considered surgical specialists and perform multiple implant surgeries every day. They have over 20 years of experience with dental implants and have placed more than 10,000 implants with high success rate. For the best results, start with an oral surgeon.
Dental implant survival and success rates in dental surgery practices are higher than the same procedures performed by general dentists.

Dental Implants can be thought of as artificial tooth roots that are placed in your jawbone and become a base for supporting one or more artificial teeth, called crowns. A connector, known as an abutment, is placed on top of the dental implant to support the crowns. Dental implants are made from medical-grade titanium which provides a more durable and natural-looking root form. Given the numerous benefits and aesthetic qualities dental implants offer, they have become the preferred method of tooth replacement today.
What are the benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental Implants are a more modern solution for tooth replacement than dentures or bridges. They are actually the only dental restoration option that preserves natural bone and helps stimulate bone growth. Dental implants look, feel and function like a real tooth. They will not decay and are designed to last for the rest of your life. There is no slippage or discomfort that commonly happens with dentures. They also make eating and speaking easier, while improving your overall oral health.
Why Choose an Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon for Your Dental Implants?
Our doctors work 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, our doctors are 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. Tokar, Dr. Zatz, and Dr. Gefon are specifically trained in all aspects of dental implant surgery. Their 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.
Who is a good candidate for Dental Implants?
Dental implants are widely regarded as the best treatment for loose dentures. Permanent dental implants are designed to make dentures much more secure and enable you to smile, eat and talk confidently. We can assist you if you have been thinking about investing in implants. The implants act as a foundation for replacement teeth. They won’t decay and are designed to last for the rest of your life. Implants can be used in conjunction with various dental procedures to improve oral health. Once they are installed, you’re much less likely to face problems with slippage and discomfort.
How do I get started?
Start with a Consultation with Dr. Tokar, Dr. Zatz, or Dr. Gefon. At this consultation, the doctor will create a customized treatment plan just for you. You’ll learn exactly how much the procedure will cost without having to worry about any surprise fees. And remember: a consultation is a conversation. It’s not a commitment. You have nothing to lose and a beautiful smile to gain.
