It is easy to take for granted the work our natural teeth perform — until we’re faced with tooth loss. A healthy smile contributes to your self-confidence and overall health. If you have lost a tooth or teeth due to an extraction, dental decay, or an accident, a dental implant can help restore your oral health and your smile. In addition, it can help restore your ability to eat and fill in any gaps in your smile.
Our practice in Allentown, PA specializes in dental implant dentistry and periodontal care. Our owner and dentist, Dr. Scott A. Gradwell has devoted much of his career to providing patients across the Lehigh Valley with the latest in dental implant technology. Since opening in 1990, he and our team have incorporated state-of-the-art technology and procedures into our practice.

Computer Guided Implants: N-Sequence by Pikos Institute of Florida
This technology helps to ensure reliable and accurate planning for dental implant surgery. By utilizing a jaw CAT scan, the software allows for the 3D image of your jaw. This provides the best control over the planning of implant positions, size, and number of implants to best suit your needs. Once the case is planned on the computer, a surgical guide is ordered to make sure the planned result will be replicated in the real surgery.
Immediate-Load Dental Implants
This treatment option allows you to have your new implants and the replacement tooth placed in a single visit. Immediate-load dental implants combine specially-formulated implants with precision surgery. This, in turn, allows us to cut down on the months and months of healing time associated with traditional implants. Dr. Gradwell has received advanced training in order to provide this treatment to patients.
When permanent tooth loss occurs, it can result in deterioration of your jawbone. When this happens, it reduces your ability to receive dental implant restorations. Bone grafting offers a solution, by restoring bone structure and providing potential implants with a stable foundation. The bone is obtained either from a tissue bank or from another area of your jaw, hip, or tibia.
Compassionate, Personalized Dental Treatments
We work directly with your general dentist to coordinate the best care for you. Every service we provide is meant to complement your routine dental care. We are proud to foster a strong reputation for compassionate care and services to patients from throughout the Lehigh Valley.
Restoring Your Dental Health, Renewing Your Smile
Traditional dental implants are made out of titanium and function as artificial roots. The implants are surgically placed into the bone of either the upper or lower jaw. During the healing period, the posts bond to the jawbone, providing a replacement crown or denture with a stable foundation. We utilize implants from trusted manufacturers and suppliers such as Implant Direct, NobelBiocare and BioHorizons.
