Dr. Perlman and Dr. Molina are periodontists—specialists in the treatment of the gums and bone that surround teeth. Periodontists have three years of advanced education after dental school that includes extensive training in placing implants and saving teeth. As a result, they can treat even the most complex implant cases and can expertly handle any complications that could occur.
You won’t find our doctors doing one-size-fits-all treatment—they will provide you with the individualized care you deserve. Their philosophy is “teeth first, implants second”—this means that they will not proceed with implant treatment if they determine they can save your natural teeth.
If your teeth are too far-gone to save, our doctors’ periodontal experience and expertise ensures your implants will be precisely placed for long-term success. Dr. Perlman has placed thousands of dental implants for satisfied patients over the last three decades.
Our doctors use only the latest cutting-edge technologies and techniques to ensure utmost accuracy in implant placement. In addition, they use only high-quality implants and components produced by the most respected and research-oriented companies in the industry.
Our doctors guarantee the success of the implants they place for a full year. Should anything happen that is not caused by elements out of their control, including complications with the prosthetics or health issues, they will replace the implants for free. In addition to standing by their work, Drs. Perlman and Molina stand by their patients and provide excellent follow-up care to ensure the implants they place can last a lifetime.

Highly Experienced Dental Implant Specialists
The placement of dental implants is a delicate procedure that relies on the skill of the doctor for a successful outcome. Fortunately, we have two exceptional implant specialists in our office: Dr. Perlman and Dr. Molina.
Dr. Perlman has nearly 30 years of periodontal experience and has placed thousands of implants in that time.
Dr. Molina has been awarded board certification by the American Board of Periodontology, a distinction that is the culmination of many years of training and hard work and denotes someone who has made significant achievements beyond the mandatory requirements of his specialty.
Throughout their careers, our doctors have religiously dedicated themselves to acquiring the latest knowledge and refining their techniques in periodontal and dental implant procedures. They continue to attend the most advanced continuing education courses and training seminars to stay at the forefront of the latest developments in dental implant technology.
Affordable Payment Options
We want you to receive the care you need, which is why our office provides numerous payment options. Our treatment coordinator can help you with financing and insurance matters.
Our Dental Implant Procedure for Precise Placement
It is extremely important to have your procedure precisely planned before the surgery takes place to ensure positive results. Our doctors use their experience, knowledge and the latest technology to make sure your dental implant treatment is accurate, efficient and done correctly.
State-of-the-Art 3D Imaging Technology
Drs. Perlman and Molina use a cone beam 3D CT scanner to produce a composite 360-degree 3D X-ray image of your jaw, teeth and related structures. The images can be viewed from any angle, and help the doctors diagnose, analyze and devise treatment plans for your procedure. The doctors are able to see how much bone is available, as well as the condition of your gums, jaw and other structures. This data will help them determine the best way to safely place your implant.
Surgical Guides for Precise Implant Placement
Using the 3D images, the doctors will design a surgical guide for your procedure. This surgical guide is a template that fits over the dental arch with an access hole corresponding to the exact location, position and angle for implant placement. The doctors will place your implants through the guide, making the procedure quick, accurate and minimally invasive.
Gentle and Minimally Invasive Extractions
When a tooth needs to be extracted before placing an implant, our doctors will use an advanced tool, called a periotome, to gently detach the tooth from the socket, leaving the surrounding gum and bone intact. Swelling is minimized and healing time is greatly reduced.
Bone Grafting for a Strong Base
If there is inadequate bone to support an implant, our doctors will graft bone material into the implant site to regenerate the needed bone. They use high-quality bone graft materials that research has proven to be effective and safe. This speeds the implant integration into the jawbone and helps guarantee long-term success and stability of the implant.
Growth Proteins for a Reliable Result and Faster Healing
When needed, our doctors will use growth proteins to stimulate bone growth for grafting procedures. These proteins work in the same way as human stem cells to generate new cell growth. Once placed, the protein material promotes regeneration of bone and ligaments.
A Gentle Approach
Our doctors will take every measure to ensure your implant treatment is anxiety-free. They have a reassuring chairside manner and a genuine concern that their patients feel at ease. Blankets, pillows and headphones for music are provided for your added comfort.
Dental implant procedures usually only require local anesthesia. You can receive a computer-regulated flow of anesthesia to the implant area to keep you comfortable. Sedation options are available if you need help reducing anxiety.
Restoring Function and Smiles
After this thorough preparation and planning, the doctor will place the implant precisely in position. Once the implant has fully integrated with your bone, you will receive your new restorations.
With Dr. Perlman and Dr. Molina’s experience and skill in implant dentistry, your new teeth will be firmly anchored in your mouth in correct alignment with your gums and other teeth. Your bite will be strong and your new teeth will never slip out of place.
Temporary Teeth the Same Day
Our doctors will place a functional temporary tooth or teeth, if the conditions warrant it. They always make sure that the implant is stable enough to be used and that the bone support is adequate.
For patients with all their teeth missing who are getting an implant-supported denture or bridge, we will provide a provisional denture after the implants are placed. Final restorations (your new teeth) will be placed after the implants have fully healed.
For the creation of new teeth, our doctors work closely with top restorative dentists to ensure the new crown, bridge or denture looks and feels natural and is fully functional.
“The professionalism, superior knowledge and kindness I was shown will never be forgotten.”
“My situation was a nightmare and my teeth were in very poor condition before I went to see Dr. Perlman. I found him to have an easygoing and calm personality, and he made me feel like I was the number one priority. He put me at ease and explained everything to me in everyday English. His staff are all angels and they always have my best interest at heart. The professionalism, superior knowledge and kindness I was shown will never be forgotten.
“I am so proud of my new teeth. I had four implants done in one day and had a fifth on another day when Dr. Perlman said it was time. I was able to get my teeth replaced and my smile back.”
