Dental Implants

Lost or missing teeth due to an unexpected accident or decay can be permanently replaced with dental implants. Dental implants are a safe and effective method for replacing missing teeth with natural-looking, permanent teeth that are custom designed to last a lifetime. Implants help retain bone in your jaw and also support the integrity of your facial structure. Dental implants a can be used to secure full dentures, partial dentures, or hybrid fixed prosthetics to create the perfect smile solution just for you.

Digital Guided Implant Placement

Surgically guided dental implant placement is an incredibly safe and effective way replace missing teeth. Dr. Melfi uses 3D imaging to virtually place dental implants using software and images of your teeth and jaws, then placing the subsequent abutment/crown into the same image, and then checking everything before any actual surgery is done. A computerized 3D printed surgical guide is designed in the software that fully controls the depth, angle, and location of the dental implant for maximum safety and alignment.


Galileos 3D CBCT X-ray

The Sirona Galileos CBCT is state of the art digital technology for full 3D evaluation of not only the teeth, but the entire head and neck regions at very low doses of radiation. A three dimensional scan allows us to evaluate the TMJ regions closely, look for joint and articular disc disorders, displacements or the onset of TMJ arthritis. In our office, the 3D scan can also provide TMJ and #C animations of the lower jaw function.
