& Recovery

Most people who contact us are candidates for our procedures.  If you’re looking for our help it’s probably because you already feel you need a change but might not know your options.  Many patients call us because they have trouble eating their favorite food or have lost confidence in their smile.  Whatever your unique situation is, our clinicians will conduct a pre-diagnosis, walk you through your treatment options before you travel, and will conduct a personal in-depth diagnosis before you determine your preferred treatment plan.

Some treatments use local anesthesia, and others general anesthesia.  If your treatment requires, or you desire general anesthesia we will engage an Anesthesiologist from the JCI accredited CIMA Hospital to oversee the procedure.

With Star Quality procedures you will look and feel great.  Whether it’s a single dental implant, or full replacement using All-on-Four technology, our clinicians will work with you to ensure that your new teeth look and feel natural.  We encourage you to look at our gallery to see the different options we can offer.

Our clinicians will work with you to determine time frames for your particular case, small treatments can be done in three days, but larger treatments may require up to a week.
