Dental Implants in Saint Paul, MN
Are the gaps and holes in your mouth keeping you from loving your smile?
Do you find yourself hiding your teeth and avoiding your favorite foods?
There is a solution—you can eat, drink, and talk with confidence with dental implants!
Dental implants are revolutionary tooth replacement options that can help patients smile with confidence after tooth loss. Dental implants are biomimetic replacement teeth that are surgically implanted into the jawbone—they mimic both the function and the appearance of natural teeth. Each implant is grounded in the jawbone with a titanium screw. Over time, the titanium root actually bonds with natural bone, forming a stable foundation for your dental restoration.
Our St. Paul dental implant office uses the latest technology to provide our patients with efficient, effective dental implant care. Using innovative Cone Beam CT x-ray technology, we can create 3D images of your teeth and bones, along with traditional 2D digital bitewings. Cone Beam technology allows us to better plan and complete dental implant treatment. We also use this technology to identify dental problems in their earliest stages, which facilitates fast, effective treatment.
Benefits of Cone Beam technology include:
- Faster scan time compared to traditional scans
- Detailed 3D scan results, which provide our dental team with more information about your dental health, and allow us to better prepare for dental implant placement
- Increased safety—Cone Beam scans emit significantly less radiation than traditional scans

NuCalm®, what’s that?
NuCalm® a completely natural relaxation protocol that helps dental patients remain comfortable during dental treatment. After using NuCalm® patients leave our office feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
How does it work?
NuCalm® treatment combines a few different techniques to relax the patient. The purpose of NuCalm® is to coax the patient into the first stage of sleep. NuCalm® is designed to shift brain waves from high frequency beta brain waves (wakefulness) to lower frequency alpha/theta waves (deep relaxation).
What exactly happens during treatment?
There are four consecutive steps to NuCalm®:
- First you’ll take a dietary supplement. This supplement helps to counteract the effects of adrenaline in your body.
- Next, our dental team will attach small microcurrent stimulation patches behind your ears. Low-level electrical currents facilitate your body’s relaxation response.
- Then, you’ll put on a pair of noise-dampening headphones. These headphones play soothing music that has been optimized calming neuroacoustic tones. As you listen to these sounds, you’ll fall deeper into a stage of pre-sleep.
- The final step is for you to put on light blocking glasses. These glasses are so important—they help you block out distractions and potentially stressful stimuli!
