Treatment Choices

  • Implants: An implant is a man-made tooth root, surgically placed in the mouth to replace a missing tooth. An oral surgeon or periodontist will place the implant into the jawbone. A crown is placed on top of the implant to provide you with the closest thing to natural teeth. Dr. Masillamoni will attach the crown, bridge, or denture (implant restoration) to the implant once healing is complete. Implants are excellent treatment choices for patients who are missing one or more teeth.
  • Implant-Supported Dentures: implants are strategically placed in the mouth to anchor the denture. They help preserve the jawbone while providing a stable foundation for the denture. The denture can be easily removed for cleaning and then snapped back into place. Benefits include a better fit, preserving the jawbone, and eliminating the use of adhesives.
