What is the Difference Between a Periodontist and a Traditional Dentist?
Dr. Amato explains some of the cases where it might be necessary to see a periodontist rather than your regular dentist.
A Better Fit Through Technology
For dental implants to fit and function just right they have to be placed with great precision. We use advanced dental technology that enables us to provide you with the perfect customized fit every time. The i-CAT® 3D cone beam machine gives us highly accurate, comprehensive images of your mouth. These provide a guide for us to use when placing your dental implants, showing us precisely where to position them for maximum comfort and results that will surprise and delight you.
Our Dental Implant Process
Before determining dental implants are your ideal tooth replacement solution, you’ll have a one-on-one consultation with one of our skilled periodontists, Dr. Richard Amato or Dr. Michael Kang. Next, we’ll schedule your surgical visit. If you need treatment prior to receiving your dental implants, we offer bone grafting and tooth extractions in-house for your convenience. During surgery, we’ll place a titanium implant post into your jawbone using computer-guided implant placement technology.
Depending on the implant solution you choose, your treatment site may be allowed to heal before returning for a secondary appointment to expose the implant post and attach a prosthetic restoration. In some cases, specifically Teeth-in-a-Day®, you can receive a functional restoration the very same day as your initial surgery. Either way, the goal is to provide you with a seamless and functional smile in Newtown, CT that will last!
What the Dental Implant Process Looks Like
You’ll begin your journey to a striking new smile at a consultation with Dr. Richard Amato, who will determine if you’re a candidate for dental implants based on several factors. Later, you’ll return for the first of two visits during which your placement will be completed. At the initial appointment, Dr. Amato will extract any deteriorated teeth that need to be replaced before inserting durable titanium posts into your jaw. Each of these acts as a root for an implant crown.
A few months later, once the post sites have healed, we’ll have you return to our office for a follow-up visit. Dr. Amato will remove the gum tissue that has naturally grown over the implant sites before adding an abutment (connector) and crown atop each post. Your crowns will match the surrounding teeth and look completely natural. With your new teeth in place, you’ll be ready to begin enjoying life again without the hassles of decayed or missing teeth!.
When he places your dental implants, Dr. Amato draws from well over two decades of experience with everything from individual implants to multiple implants to full arch cases. Let his expertise put the smile back on your face.
Implant supported dentures are a dependable alternative to dental implants that many patients find better suit their specific needs. If you already have dentures, we may be able to modify them so they can be attached to implant posts. Should you decide to upgrade to dental implants in the future, your posts will already be in place!
Teeth-in-a-Day makes complete smile restoration in just one appointment a reality. During a single appointment, we can place four to six posts and top them off with temporary crowns that allow you to eat, speak, and smile naturally and painlessly. On your return visit you’ll receive permanent restorations that will provide a lifetime of dependable performance and beauty.
