For dental replacements that become a permanent part of your smile, Hazzouri Dental provides the finest in dental implants for our Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area patients. They can replace a single tooth or be an alternative to traditional bridges or dentures. Because dental implants are anchored to your jaw, they come closer than any other method of restoration to providing the look, feel, comfort, and function of natural teeth.
Unlike many practices, Hazzouri Dental can perform every step of the procedure involved in creating and installing dental implants for our Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area patients in one place. That’s because, unlike many dentists, Dr. Hazzouri has been trained to perform the oral surgery required to place dental implant bases. Other dentists have to send the patient to an oral surgeon before they can begin to craft the dental replacements. At Hazzouri Dental, we’re able to provide all necessary steps from start to beautiful finish.
Dental implants from our Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area practice begin with a threaded titanium base placed in the jaw to serve as a replacement for tooth roots. If a single tooth is being replaced, only a single implant base is required. For replacement of multiple teeth, more than one base is required. The number depends on the type and design of the replacement. In some cases, a single replacement tooth is attached to each base. In other cases, a bridge may be anchored to two or more bases. As an example, one type of full upper bridge, replacing an ordinary upper denture, is anchored with six implant bases. Once in position, bone and gum grow around the implant base until it is secure.
Next, we create the tooth replacements, which will be permanently fastened by means of studs screwed into the bases. Of course, Hazzouri Dental uses only the very highest quality materials to create replacements that are virtually indistinguishable from the real thing. Added to the security of dental implants, the result is a cosmetic solution that will enhance your smile for many years.
