Whether you suffer from loose dentures or broken, failing, or infected teeth, you can experience smile restoration with a full set of functional and natural-looking teeth that are placed at the same time as extractions and implants.

With an advanced five-year residency program focused on implants, Dr. Puterman is uniquely qualified to deliver superior implant treatments. He focuses on shortening the length of time that you are without a tooth, by placing a majority of implants as "immediate implants". These are implants that are placed at the same time as taking the tooth out. Why? Not only does it reduce your time without a tooth, it also lessens the amount of surgical procedures you need, and is less costly for you.
His advanced training and experience also frequently allows him to place a temporary tooth directly on the implant at the same time as placing the implant, reducing the need for bothersome removable temporary teeth. As a leader on the technology side, Dr. Puterman uses 3D microscopes and X-Nav Dynamic Imaging to track and guide his surgical instruments with three-dimensional images for a less invasive, more efficient, and highly precise surgical approach.
The average General Dentist places a handful of implants
per year and the average Periodontist/Oral Surgeon places
around 200 per year. Dr. Puterman places several hundred
per year, giving him the experience you deserve.
Dental Implants are strong and stable, functioning like a natural tooth.
With dental Implants, you don't need to drill down adjacent teeth, like you do with a bridge.
No more removing your teeth, slurring your speech or limiting your food choices.
The best bridges and dentures typically last five to ten years. Dental Implants can last a lifetime.
Because of the long-term success, implants are actually less costly in the long run.
Precision imaging means precision treatment. Without the discomfort of traditional bitewings, our cone beam imaging system provides a high-definition anatomical scan producing 3-D images of the bones, teeth, nerves, sinuses, and structure of the head, face, neck and jaw.
With Implants DC, patients experience a natural healing boost after implant surgery with the advanced technology of Leukocyte Platelet Rich Fibrin therapy (L-PRF™). It’s as painless as a routine blood test and 100% natural, unlike PRP or PRGF. Using a small sample of your blood, L-PRF™ bioactive clots are formed by separating and concentrating your platelets and healing proteins. Much like a natural “band-aid”, these powerful L-PRF™ clots are then placed on your surgery site to boost the natural healing process.
