Dental implants provide permanent solutions for missing teeth. Whether you’ve lost a tooth to damage, or your dentist has recommended extraction for health reasons, an implant provides a support that can accommodate a life-like prosthetic. Dr. Peter Ruggiero believes in offering every service in the most comfortable setting possible and provides ample education to every patient, so they can rest easy knowing that they are getting the best-possible treatment for their unique situation.
What Is A Dental Implant?
Dental implants are placed underneath your gum line and are supported by your jawbone. They are made from titanium and can accommodate almost any sort of prosthetic. They are a good option because they are permanent and provide the same strength and support of natural teeth. The prosthetics we provide are extremely life-like, so they fit into your smile seamlessly.
When Do I Need One?
Dental implants are good solutions when you are missing a single tooth, as the alternative is a bridge, which requires placing crowns on the adjacent teeth. A prosthetic doesn’t affect other teeth, so it is a more straight-forward procedure. Implants can also replace several missing teeth or, in the case of an individual having few to no remaining teeth, multiple implants can support a full denture. Overall, Dr. Peter Ruggiero will thoroughly examine your mouth and will recommend the option best-suited for you.
