Before Dental Implants in Half Moon Bay, CA
Treatment Options to Prepare You for Dental Implants
If dental implants are part of your treatment plan, you may need to undergo periodontal surgery or other procedures that prepare the gums, bone and teeth for the implant. Dr. Rand Ollerton has extensive experience performing dental implant surgery at his practice and also takes care of the preparation stage — everything from tooth extractions to bone grafting.

The Dental Implant Surgery Process
If you are undergoing a full mouth reconstruction treatment plan that includes dental implants or need multiple implants placed, we may need to see you over a course of a few months. Dr. Ollerton uses several techniques to accelerate the healing process and minimize trauma to the gums and teeth.
We offer sedation dentistry options to make dental visits more comfortable and minimize pain during and after treatment. Talk to us about the benefits of IV sedation if you have dental anxiety or fear about going to the dentist.
Surgical Preparation Procedures
Dr. Ollerton performs several tissue grafting procedures and tooth extractions to prepare your gums and jaw for dental implants. Your treatment plan before the actual placement of dental implants might include:
- Tooth Extractions
- Ridge Augmentation
- Sinus Augmentation/Lift
- Ridge Preservation
- Bone Grafting
Rapid Healing After Dental Implant Surgery
Since dental implant surgery is one of the more aggressive procedures we perform, we take extra steps to minimize pain and swelling. Dr. Ollerton uses Plasma Rich Growth Factors (PRGF) to reduce inflammation and also accelerate the natural healing process. PRGF also increases platelet growth by 700%, which means the tissues can be restored quickly and regenerate at a faster rate for months to come.
