Dental Implant Placement and Restoration
Very few dentists offer both dental implant placement as well as restoration services. Dr. Scalzitti does. Her extensive training with the Loma Linda implant institute and experience with dental implant therapy allow us to provide individual as well as full mouth implant therapy.
What are Dental Implants?
Implants are prosthetic teeth that use artificial roots placed into the jaw. Each artificial root is made of titanium, which is extremely biocompatible. Not only does the body accept the artificial root, it also forms new bone around it to secure it permanently into place.
Types of Implant Restorations
Restorations are placed on top of the implant. Regardless of how many missing teeth you have, a variety of implant restorations are available.
Some of the types frequently used include:
- Individual Dental Crowns – for replacing single teeth
- Multiple Tooth Dental Bridges – for 3 or 4 missing teeth
- Implant Supported Dentures – including permanent All-on-4 implants and removable overdentures
We can also restore your implants if a previous dentist placed them.
Benefits of Implants
Dental implants are extremely durable. In fact, they can support more weight than a natural, healthy tooth. Implants preserve natural biting patterns, eliminate the need to wear bulky prosthetics, and strengthen the natural bone within your jaws.
We frequently utilize dental implants for our full mouth reconstruction cases. Find out if you are a candidate for dental implants and how many you might need by calling our office today. We would be happy to see you for a complimentary consultation to answer your questions.
