Dr. Andrew Mueller and Dr.Patrick Waters are trained through Parkland/UT Southwestern Medical School and earned their medical degrees from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas, TX. They specialize in the full scope of oral and maxillofacial surgery and are experts in dental implants, retaining a 99 percent success rate for the thousands of implants they place each year. Our oral surgeons are highly experienced in all implant treatments, from single to full arch, and are trained to handle emergency situations and treat medically compromised patients.
If a dentist has told you that you’re not a candidate for dental implants, it’s most likely because they didn’t have the expertise to treat your specific case. Our oral surgeons are the experts in dental implants and are qualified to treat patients with advanced gum disease, severe bone loss, and those who are medically compromised. Additionally, with both dental and medical training, they’re experienced in handling complex surgical cases, emergency situations, and IV sedation anesthesia for patients.
Treatment length always depends on your unique case. However, generally we can schedule your consultation immediately, with surgery completed within the next 2-6 weeks. Your final restoration can be delivered approximately 4 months later, but you’ll have temporary teeth during this time.
On the day of your surgery, we’ll administer IV sedation anesthesia so you can be asleep for your entire procedure. Our team is licensed to offer this anesthesia option and our oral surgeons are equipped to handle both dental and medical emergencies, with the expertise to treat medically compromised patients. We’ll monitor you throughout your entire surgery using an EKG and blood pressure cuff, pulse oximeter, and oxygen, and we can administer steroids, anti-nausea medication, and IV antibiotics as necessary. We’ve placed thousands of dental implants and virtually all our patients are thrilled to find out how simple the process was and report little or no pain after their surgery.
