Dental Implants

Dental Implants are small bone screws made from titanium that an oral surgeon places into the jaw to act as a foundation to replace missing teeth. These implants act as the root of the tooth, and a prosthetic crown and abutment is mounted on top of the implantonce it has healed properly into the bone. Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons have been placing Implants successfully for decades, and Dr. Pierri has been a practicing implantologist for over 30 years. Dr. Pierri uses the absolute best dental implant systems on the market,Dentsply Astratech and Straumann, and is the number one solo user internationally of the Materialise-Simplant drillguide, a precise computer guided implant placement system. Dr. Pierri virtually performs all implant surgeries on the computer before ever touching the patientto ensure prosthetically-driven optimal dental implant placement.
