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.

Smile With Confidence Thanks to Your Single Tooth Implant
As your periodontist, Dr. Crawford is a highly skilled expert with over 25 years of experience in gum health and implant dentistry. He has an in-depth understanding of the complexities involved in both implant placement and restoration. His expertise guarantees the success and longevity of your implant.
Rather than just replacing a single tooth with a conventional bridge, a crown supported by an implant will give you the look and function of a natural tooth. When we move forward with your single implant procedure, you gain several advantages:
- Natural Appearance – A single implant paired with a beautiful crown will blend seamlessly with your existing teeth.
- Improved Speech – Even missing one tooth can impact your speech. Replacing it with an implant will restore clarity to the way you speak.
- Easy Maintenance – You don’t need to do anything to protect your implant. You just care for it like a natural tooth with regular brushing and flossing.
- No Bone Loss – Since you are replacing the tooth root, you avoid bone loss in your jaw.
While we numb your mouth for the placement of your implant and the restoration process, you can also receive soothing sedation. It will ease your anxiety and make it easier to relax throughout your treatment.Schedule Your Implant Consultation
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. I am so happy that my dentist referred me to them. Choosing a dentist is an easy. They have opened up the office, especially for me to get some thing done hands-down the best.
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.

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.

Modern dental implants are small metal posts, usually made from titanium, that your dentist places in your jaw to serve as replacement teeth roots. If you are missing teeth, your implants will fuse with your jawbone to form a sturdy base for new replacement teeth. Implants anchor crowns, bridges, and dentures to give you back a beautiful smile and strong bite.
Having a dental implant placed is not painful because your jaw will be numbed, and you can stay completely relaxed with dental sedation throughout the procedure. Once you go home, you might require pain relievers for a day or two, but most of our patients report only taking over-the-counter medication following their dental implant procedure. Most feel well enough to return to work the day after.
An implant must be surrounded by healthy gums and bone to heal properly once it’s placed. Depending on your oral health, we may recommend gum disease treatment or a bone graft before you receive an implant. Once healed, loose implants are exceptionally rare. In some cases, the restorations attached to your implants can come loose. If so, we can tighten or replace the restoration.
