What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium tooth root replacements which are inserted into the jaw where teeth are missing. They are surgically placed into the jawbone and over time the bone bonds with the titanium and creates a strong foundation for teeth or dentures. In the case of individual teeth crowns are then attached to the implants, above the gums, to provide the visible tooth. In regards to dentures, the implants are equipped with button or snap type clasps to provide the dentures with superior retention. By increasing denture retention the quality of chewing is improved and lessens loose dentures. In addition to the obvious esthetic and functional benefits, implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing the natural bone deterioration that occurs with tooth loss.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

I went in for an extraction of a bottom molar due to a previous root canal failure. Dr. Mark Spinazze was engaging, informative, taking the time to explain what was going on in the X-ray of my tooth and why it couldn't be saved. We discussed the future implant I will eventually have. I was extremely nervous about the extraction. Dr. Mark talked to me throughout the entire procedure explaining as he went along. He and his team of two assistants made me feel as safe and comfortable as possible. The procedure went smoothly and was over quickly. They set the bar for how all dentists and doctors should interact with their patients.

I am so glad I found a doctor who I can trust and be confident in. He does only the work that is needed and gives you the advice you need to take care of yourself at home. The staff calls you back to find out how you are doing and if there was anything else they can do for you. It's nice to finally find a doctor and staff who treat you as a friend and not just another patient. They care.
