Dental Implant Surgery such as single tooth replacements, multiple teeth and full-mouth reconstructions.

Trans-Mandibular Implants to rehabilitate the jaws that are "too thin" or "too small" for implants (also known as 'atrophic mandibles).

Bone Grafting Surgery, where bone is replaced where it has been lost due to either trauma, infection or tumor/cyst resection surgery. 'Sinus Lift' procedures are also performed to 'undo' mother nature's "pneumatization" of the maxillary sinus (the back of the upper jaw) to allow for placement of implant at the back of the upper jaws to replace lost molar teeth. These procedures are done in the office and hospital operating room, depending on the extent of grafting required and the "donor" site (if one is used).

Dr. Matos can use any implant system the restoring doctor is comfortable with. Different Implant systems are sometimes used at different times depending on the situations that arise such as the type of prosthesis, the quality of the bone and the aesthetic demand of the area of the mouth being restored...  please feel free to ask at any time.  Please be aware that there are many implants and very different fees - it is important to know what you are getting for your money - never be afraid or intimidated to ask your doctor exactly what you are getting and be able to have access to all the information you request.  We do not provide "brochures" and "literature" provided by implant companies because they are often a Marketing Tactic and not necessarily the best option for every patient and their situation/expectations.  Again, be informed and make sure you know what you are getting and what to expect...
