Replace Missing Teeth & Stabilize Dentures
Are you suffering from missing teeth or ill-fitting dentures? If so, you understand how missing teeth and loose dentures can not only impact the appearance and function of your smile, but your overall confidence and quality of life. That’s why Dr. Colleran is happy to provide the #1 recommended tooth replacement solution – by doctors and patients alike – with dental implants.
Dental implants are small titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the gums and allowed to fuse with the jawbone. Rather than just replacing the crown or the visible portion of the tooth, dental implants replace the root of the tooth, which is an essential component in maintaining a healthy, functioning smile.
The benefits of dental implants include:
- Stabilize surrounding teeth & bite
- Prevent jawbone deterioration & bone loss
- Preserve oral & facial structure
- Regain normal speech patterns
- Enjoy favorite foods again
- No removal for eating or cleaning
- Replace a single tooth or multiple teeth
- Stabilize dentures
Dr. Colleran is a skilled and experienced dental implant provider in San Luis Obispo. Unlike other dental offices that refer you out to a specialist, we are happy to be able to provide precision surgical implant placement and the final restoration right here from the comfort of your dental home.
LANAP® Laser Gum Disease Treatment
Do you have red, swollen gums that bleed during regular brushing and flossing? Are your gums receding or forming periodontal pockets? Have you been diagnosed with gum disease and are seeking a skilled and experienced dentist in San Luis Obispo to help? You’ve come to the right place! Dr. Colleran is on the cutting edge of gum disease treatment with the revolutionary LANAP® laser treatment.
Traditional gum disease treatments involve minor surgical procedures – scalpels, sutures, tissue grafts, and a whole lot of unsightly pain and discomfort. Thankfully, with advances in modern technology, we are now able to treat gum disease, reverse gum recession, and save teeth with LANAP®. LANAP® uses a tiny laser fiber to pass between the teeth, sterilize and remove the infection, while keeping healthy gum tissue intact.
The benefits of LANAP® include:
- No cutting or sewing
- No tissue grafts
- Preservation of healthy tissue
- True Regeneration™ of healthy bone & tissue
- Reverse gum recession
- Reduce pocket depth
- Save teeth
- No bleeding or swelling
- Minimal to no pain, discomfort or sensitivity
Dr. Colleran is a nationally renowned authority in laser dentistry, and a skilled and experienced LANAP® provider in San Luis Obispo. Unlike other dentists that use traditional gum surgery for gum disease treatment, or refer you out to a periodontist or specialist, we are happy to be able to treat and reverse your gum disease from the comfort of your dental home with the revolutionary LANAP® laser treatment.

Why Our Patients Smile
“I love this place. The people are the nicest; the atmosphere is very light and friendly. They always have really good music and when I confessed how long it’s been since I’ve seen the dentist there was zero judgement. They also do a great job with pain, nothing hurts!”
