Dental Implant Services

Dental implants can replace a single tooth or replace all of your teeth and are the best tooth-replacement option as they provide long-lasting results and help preserve bone that normally deteriorates when a tooth is lost and not replaced. They consist of a titanium post that replaces the missing tooth's root and are topped with a lifelike porcelain crown; working together they will look, feel, and function like a normal tooth. Dental implants have a success rate of over 95%, making them more effective than any other tooth-replacement option.

Consultations are FREE so call our office today and set-up an appointment with Dr. Cristoforo or Dr. Carmosino. During your consultation, we will discuss the options available to you.

Periodontal Treatment

Good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups can help maintain natural teeth for life by protecting the gums and supporting bone structures. Bacterial infections such as gum disease can cause damage to these supporting tissues, which is why we make it a top priority to monitor patients for early signs of disease.

Dr. Cristoforo and Dr. Carmosino utilize many modern periodontal treatments to help restore diseased tissues to health and prevent the spread of gum disease to the bone, which can lead to tooth loss. Treatment options range from deep cleanings to surgical repair of lost gum and bone tissue.

I'm amazed at how pain-free the process and recovery has been. The staff is amazingly personable and kind. Believe it or not, it's been a terrific experience. I know: hard to believe those words when we're talking about periodontics, right? All very true words.... Highly recommend this team of dental professionals."
