Dental implants help preserve facial structure, preserve bone from the deterioration that occurs after teeth are removed, and prevent overload damage to adjacent teeth. The implants themselves are tiny titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence, knowing that replacement teeth placed on the dental implants will look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Some patients will need to undergo bone grafting prior to dental implant surgery. Dr. Sidal offers safe, comfortable bone grafting services tailored specifically to each individual’s needs.

X-Guide™ Navigational Implant Placement

Ask us about X-Guide™ by X-Nav – this revolutionary technology allows us to place implants with guided precision in real-time. With X-Guide™, you can rest assured that your dental implant has been placed with the highest standard of accuracy. The procedure is minimally invasive with smaller incisions than traditional implant placements and thus leads to less pain, faster recovery, and ideal functional and aesthetic results.



By the age of 18, the average adult has 32 teeth; 16 teeth on the top and 16 teeth on the bottom. Each tooth in the mouth has a specific name and function. The teeth in the front of the mouth (incisors, canines, and bicuspid teeth) are ideal for grasping and biting food into smaller pieces. The back teeth (molar teeth) are used to grind food up into a consistency suitable for swallowing. The average mouth can only accommodate 28 teeth. It can be painful when the last four of the 32 teeth try to erupt into jaws that only have room for 28 teeth. These four molars that are the last to erupt, are called third molars or “wisdom teeth.”
