Dental implant therapy
Dental implant therapy has been one of the most significant advances in dentistry over the past twenty-five years. There are several different types implants and restorations available and the choice depends on the amount of bone available, the patient’s general health and the preference of restoration. The option that will work best for you can be discussed in great detail with the doctor.
Placement of the mini implants is accomplished easily and quickly in a procedure performed right in our office with either local anesthesia or conscious sedation. Using a precise, controlled and minimally invasive technique, the implants are placed into the jawbone. The titanium implant acts like the root of your tooth and the head of the implant that is shaped like a ball protrudes from the gum tissue providing a solid foundation for your restoration. Because of the minimally invasive nature of this procedure, the healing period is not a lengthy period and the care and maintenance of your implants is as if they were your own natural teeth. Dr. Silvestri has attended multiple two-three day hands on advanced training programs in order to offer our patients the most advanced treatment available today.
