Tooth replacement is both an art and a science. Replacing a natural tooth requires a great deal of artistic vision and a flawless scientific method. Choosing the most ideal tooth replacement solution also requires a close working relationship between the dentist and the patient.
Dr. Piccolo has adopted the policies and procedures that are necessary to foster an open and honest relationship with you, the patient. With mutual respect and communication, it is possible to assess your current level of health, explore your main objectives and ultimately restore your oral condition.
Dental implants are the most critically-acclaimed tooth replacement method currently available. As a replicate of a natural tooth, an implant functions more like a natural tooth than any other alternative. By anchoring an artificial tooth root into the jaw bone, Dr. Piccolo can employ a number of prosthetic techniques in order to reconstruct your smile.
Dental implants may be recommended to replace a single tooth or as a portion of a comprehensive reconstructive plan. Crowns and bridges can be used in conjunction with your implants to complete your smile and restore your biting efficiency.
If you are faced with complete tooth loss (edentulous), Dr. Piccolo may utilize implants to anchor a denture or partial. In addition to a greater degree of stability, an implant can prevent bone loss when used in this manner.
If you share Dr. Piccolo’s vision of optimal oral health, it is important to appreciate the value of each tooth. For your health, it is essential to consider the options for replacing even a single missing tooth.
