For most people dealing with a missing tooth, life can get a little more complicated when it comes to common tasks like enjoying certain foods or even talking in some cases. Luckily, Dr. Iacobelli and his amazing dental team offer dental implant treatments as a solution to fix and correct any issues you might be dealing with due to missing teeth. Continue reading to learn more about the different dental implant procedures we offer, the benefits of each one, and how they can help you regain a fully functional smile.    

 

Typically, a dental implant is comprised of a titanium post that is surgically placed within your jawbone. This is done so the post can fuse together with your jawbone to act as a replica of your tooth’s original root. This helps to secure the post so the implant doesn’t move or shift out of place. Once the post has fused with your jaw and has properly healed, you will then receive a tooth-like dental prosthetic that will fit over your post looking and functioning just like a real tooth. Some of the benefits dental implants come with are: 

 

  • Natural-looking tooth replacement
  • Restores ability to eat and speak clearly
  • Preserves bone and tissue
  • Prevents damage to surrounding teeth
  • Improves the appearance of your smile

The types of dental implants offered at Iacobelli & Sala

Drs. Iacobelli & Sala offer a wide array of dental implant options. These options include: 

  • All - on - 4Ⓡ Dental implants: this implant treatment will allow you to regain oral facilities that you may have lost or that have been impaired due to the loss of several teeth   
  • Teeth - in - a - Day™: with this type of dental implant treatment you can walk into our office with a broken smile and leave that same day with a full set of functional teeth. 
  • Implant-Supported Dentures: these implant-based dentures are also referred to as permanent dentures. The process consists of inserting a set of implants in the jaw so they can support the custom dentures that will be permanently secured in your mouth.
