Duluth Dental Implant Specialist - Dr. Roy Moscattini - Nobel Smile Advisor
Dental implants are advanced dental treatment for lost or extracted teeth that provide a permanent and stable solution to this common problem. Implants are prosthetic teeth attached to metal posts that are surgically placed in the jaw for maximum stability and longevity. Dr. Roy Moscattini of Moscattini Dental is a Nobel Smile Advisor with years of experience helping patients with dental implants in Duluth; he can work with you to determine if implant dentistry is a good option for your oral health needs.
What Are Dental Implants Used to Treat?
Dental implants are used to replace teeth that have been lost due to accidents, tooth decay, gum disease or other causes. They can also be used to replace teeth that are badly damaged, cracked or diseased, and in need of extraction to preserve oral health. For patients in need of extractions, implants can be placed immediately following. Implants can also be utilized to stabilize traditional dentures for patients who are experiencing total tooth loss and want a permanent restoration. Dr. Moscattini works with a trusted local periodontist to place the faux tooth root, or implant rod, for your restoration. Once gum tissue has healed, Dr. Moscattini finishes your tooth replacement at his Duluth dental office with a custom crown.
What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are preferable to traditional teeth replacement options for a number of reasons.• Implants look, feel and function like natural teeth
• They don't require you to make changes to your diet or your brushing and flossing routine
• Implants do not block the palate, so you can still enjoy the flavors of the foods that you eat
• With implants, you can help to reduce the risk of remaining teeth shifting
• The rods implanted in the jaw help to prevent bone loss that can lead to altered facial aesthetic
• They do not require alteration to existing, healthy structures to be successfully placed
Getting Dental Implants in Duluth
The first step in the implant process is a consultation. Dr. Moscattini uses our Panorex panoramic digital imaging system to take pictures of your mouth and performs a complete examination during the consultation. He will then discuss all of the options available for addressing gaps in your smile, explaining the benefits of dental implants and other procedures (if applicable). If dental implants are the treatment that would best suit you, our team helps you schedule an appointment with a partner periodontist in the Duluth area to undergo dental implant placement. Then, Dr. Moscattini provides ongoing care for the implants and monitors the treatment process to ensure success.
