Dr. Crawford provided exceptional and compassionate service by helping me fix my left front tooth, which is an implant that fell out of my mouth this morning. Dr. Crawford, accompanied by his wonderful wife, Madelyn came to the office, even during this Memorial Day holiday weekend to bring healing and to restore me to my former self.They were warm, kind, and I felt as if I were a family member. God’s blessings upon the entire Crawford family and office staff. I definitely recommend Dr. Crawford’s office to anyone looking for a highly skilled and empathetic specialty dentist. This is a holiday weekend and Dr. Crawford didn’t even charge me. That’s Grace from on high. Thank you God for giving Dr. Crawford wisdom and knowledge to do such intricate work.

Strengthen Your Bite With Mini Implants
When you choose Implant Dentistry & Laser Periodontics for your implant procedure, you benefit from Dr. Crawford’s 25-plus years of experience. He works with patients from all walks of life who want his expertise to repair their smile. He never talks down to his patients or rushes through appointments. He takes time to help you understand what’s needed to restore your oral function.
During your implant consultation, he’ll get images of your mouth with digital X-rays and 3-D or 4-D scans. It helps him plan your procedure and ensure your smile is in good condition. You’ll need healthy gum tissue for successful implant placement. So, if he spots a need for periodontal care, he’ll provide treatment to restore your gum health.
You’ll discover that mini implants provide similar benefits to their full-sized counterparts. However, they offer additional perks because of their smaller diameter:
- Easy Procedure – Placing mini implants is a quick procedure that should take only one appointment. The process is less invasive then receiving full-size implants, so local anesthesia is typically all that’s needed. But you can receive dental sedation, if needed.
- Fast Healing – Because the placement of these implants is not as complicated, you can expect a quick recovery.
- Natural Feel and Function – Your new teeth will be secured by these implants. As a result, they’ll function similar to natural teeth.
- Less Expensive – This is one aspect many patients appreciate. Since the implants are smaller, your procedure typically costs less than other implant treatments.
I’ve been a patient with Dr Crawford for nearly 25 years. He and his staff are very up to date on new procedures, very friendly, efficient easy to work with if you need to rearrange appointments and helpful dealing with insurance. I think you would have a hard time finding another office with more knowledge and experience to handle your periodontal issues.
Dr Crawford and his staff are very professional yet very personal. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. They listen to your problem and try to find a quick solution.

Dr Crawford and his staff are wonderful. They are friendly, competent, and compassionate. They make you feel comfortable and relaxed. The office is immaculate and the decor pleasing. They have taken care of my teeth for decades. I seriously doubt I would still have my own teeth if it were not for their care. And I am 80 years old!
I recommend Dr Crawford without hesitation.
My whole experience has been amazing. The entire office is professional, friendly, and very talented. Dr Crawford is so kind. I feel so lucky to have found him. I had 2 implants and I couldn’t be happier!
My procedure fixed a gum recession issue on my lower left. Dr Crawford and his staff were very thorough and all went well. It’s been two months now and the graft is healing up nicely. All of the follow up appointments went smoothly and on time. No issues what so ever.
The most amazing dentist/surgeon! The entire staff works as a team and make me feel like family. Dr Crawford is the very best and does excellent work! They gave me my smile back! Highly recommended 10 star for sure!!
I loved the care and treatment I received on my teeth today but also the registered hygienist was very professional and personable. Really I felt a sense of relief and not downgraded as in the past. I want to work with her again! Dr Crawford was great as always!!! Thanks. For once I felt good leaving the dental office.
I have been a patient and recommended patients to Dr. Crawford for many years. He and his staff have always been very professional and accommodating . The quality of his work is excellent. If you need a periodontist Dr Crawford is the Dr. to see.

Mini dental implants are smaller versions of traditional dental implants that can support an entire arch of teeth. They are typically used in cases where traditional implants cannot be used due to a lack of bone density or other factors. Mini dental implants can last for many years with proper care and maintenance.
Mini dental implants are not a one-size-fits-all solution. They are typically used in cases where traditional implants are not possible. Dr. Crawford will evaluate your oral health and jawbone strength to determine the best treatment for your needs.
The benefits of mini dental implants include a shorter recovery time, less discomfort during the placement procedure, and the ability to support an entire arch of teeth in cases where traditional implants cannot be used. Plus, they are less expensive than traditional implants, making them a more affordable option for some patients.
