When preparing your jaw for dental implants, we will utilize the most advanced technology to ensure predictable and successful results. The first visit involves a thorough examination of your oral health and we will take images of your jaw using our cone beam CT (CBCT) scanner. This allows us to get a highly detailed view of your jaw structure, including bone volume, location of nerves and where surrounding tooth roots are located. Houston periodontist, Dr. Nicosia uses state-of-the-art live-time computer navigated implant placement technology to ensure accuracy and success in your dental implant surgery. Once your implant heals, your general dentist will restore it with a natural looking dental crown to blend seamlessly into your smile.

Gum disease is a very common health problem, as well as the leading cause of tooth loss among adults in the United States. While the initial stage (gingivitis) may seem harmless enough, more advanced forms of this bacterial infection can lead to severe consequences, which is why early intervention is so essential.

We understand that accidents happen at the worst times, so we do our best to work with you in order to see emergency appointments as soon as possible. You should schedule an emergency appointment if you experience any severe oral pain or excessive bleeding from the mouth. The sooner you receive care, the more successful treatments can become.
Dr. Nicosia and our team focus on preventative dentistry every time you visit our periodontal office to ensure you stay healthy. This includes identifying and treating potential problems early and providing periodontal maintenance to ensure your mouth stays in optimal condition and free of gum disease.

Excessive teeth grinding can cause broken or worn-down teeth that will not function as they should. Patients who suffer from constant teeth grinding can receive a nightguard to wear while they sleep. This repositions the jaw and prevents teeth from grinding together and causing damage.
I highly recommend Dr. Nicosia. He is an excellent dentist who has seen me through many challenging dental problems. I also highly recommend his entire staff, whose cordiality and personal attention to his patients is outstanding.Betty B

His father and mine both served in WWII entering 1940.
