Dental Implants

Dental Implants are a great innovation in modern dentistry. In the past, the only options for replacing a missing tooth were dentures or a bridge. Dental implantsĀ are more stable and efficient in comparison to dentures and dental bridges. Implants are titanium cylinders or screws that are placed into the bone to mimic a tooth root. After an extended healing period, which allows the screw to be locked into the bone, the crown of the tooth is then secured to the implant.

Implants are a great option for replacing missing teeth where cosmetics are a concern. We will work with you to make sure your implanted tooth looks natural in terms of color, shape, and size. Implants can also be used to help secure your complete dentures or can be used to permanently retain your complete dentures. Most people who have dental implants report that there is less pain involved with the procedure than with a tooth extraction. Local anesthesia can be provided as your comfort is one of our greatest concerns.

If you feel like dental implants would be a good option for you to improve your oral health, schedule an appointment today. By utilizing 3-D dental imaging, digital x-rays, impressions, and a thorough exam, we can determine if the quality and quantity of bone are limiting factors for this procedure. Although individual evaluation is necessary, Dr. Santilli and his highly qualified staff are confident in finding the perfect solution for every patient. Our team will work with you to develop a plan that will get your smile back to looking and feeling its best!
