Dental Implants

Dr. Anzalone offers dental implants – the modern, lifelike and long-lasting solution for the replacement of missing teeth.

Expert, Minimally Invasive Dental Implant Placement

Single ImplantA dental implant is a titanium post that is inserted into your jaw to act as a replacement root for a missing tooth, and serves as the supporting foundation for a dental crown, a bridge or a denture. Dental implants are the strongest, most lifelike and longest-lasting tooth replacement option, and with proper care can last a lifetime. Dental implants are also the only form of tooth replacement that prevents bone loss in the jaw.

Our Dental Implant Services

Dr. Anzalone provides a comprehensive range of dental implant services. Below are the options he provides to replace one tooth, several teeth in a row or an entire arch of teeth:

Individual implants

Single Tooth ImplantTo replace a single missing tooth, Dr. Anzalone can place an individual implant that is topped with a dental crown.

Implant-supported bridges


Implant Supported BridgeFor several missing teeth in a row, Dr. Anzalone can place multiple implants that are used to support a dental bridge. A series of implant-supported bridges can be used to replace an entire arch of teeth.

Implant-supported removable snap-on denture


Snap on DenturesDr. Anzalone can place several implants on your arch that will securely retain a denture through the use of special snap-on attachments. The denture will not slip, and will have significantly increased chewing power. For an upper denture, there will be no false palate covering the roof of your mouth which inhibits your sense of taste or your perception of heat and cold.

Implants to stabilize your current denture


Denture StabilizationIf you currently have a denture that fits well and is in good condition, Dr. Anzalone can retrofit your current denture with special snap-in attachments so it will rest securely on implants. Your denture will function similarly to the snap-on denture above and will have enhanced chewing power.

Implant-supported full-arch fixed-in new teeth


Implant Supported DenturesDr. Anzalone can place a series of implants to support a full set of replacement teeth that are firmly fixed-in and can only be removed by a dentist. Your new teeth never need to be removed, will not slip or irritate your gums, and will provide nearly the same chewing power as natural teeth. There will be no false palate to inhibit your sense of taste, and you will be able to eat all the foods you want.

Our Dental Implant Procedure

Dental Implant Procedure

Our digital panoramic X-ray machine is used to provide detailed diagnostics.

Dental implant placement is a precise procedure that requires detailed diagnostics and meticulous execution. Dr. Anzalone uses many of the latest technical advances to make your implant placement accurate, efficient and minimally invasive.

Dr. Anzalone and our staff do everything they can to make your treatment as comfortable and gentle as possible. For added comfort during treatment, we offer blankets, pillows and headphones for listening to music. If you need extra help for anxiety, Dr. Anzalone provides several sedation options, including IV sedation that is administered and monitored by a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist.

State-of-the-art diagnostics and planning

Dr. Anzalone first starts with detailed diagnostics, which includes a full panoramic X-ray and a comprehensive oral exam. When needed, he will also arrange for you to receive a full 3D CT scan at a nearby facility. Dr. Anzalone uses this information to perform precise treatment planning.

Thorough education about your procedure

Patient Education

Dr. Anzalone will explain all procedures to you in detail before treatment begins.

Before your treatment starts, Dr. Anzalone will explain in detail what your plan includes. He will explain all procedures in easy-to-understand terms and answer all of your questions. In this way you will be fully informed and can feel at ease about your treatment.

Gentle extractions

If an extraction is needed, Dr. Anzalone removes the tooth gently and in a way that minimizes any damage to the surrounding gum and bone. This greatly reduces any swelling, speeds healing and often lowers or eliminates the need for bone grafting to create enough bone support for the implant.

Expert bone grafting

When the bone volume needs to be increased so an implant can be adequately supported, Dr. Anzalone will place graft material at the implant site to stimulate new bone growth. He uses minimally invasive procedures and advanced materials for effective bone regeneration.

Immediate temporary teeth

When needed to maintain the appearance of your smile,  Dr. Anzalone will provide a temporary restoration for you to wear while your implants are healing. Your final new teeth will be placed when your implants have fully healed.

Your beautiful, final new teeth

Dr. Anzalone will work closely with your dentist to ensure your new teeth are aesthetically pleasing and correctly aligned with your bite. Your new teeth will look completely natural and will feel and function like natural teeth, giving you excellent chewing power and allowing you to eat all the foods you enjoy.

Patient Testimonial

“The treatment I have received from Dr. Anzalone and his staff has been by far the most enjoyable experience I have ever had with dental procedures.

“In the course of my life, I have spent a lot of time in the dentist chair, and my condition was horrible when I came to see Dr. Anzalone. I had missing teeth and had had a lot of bridgework. Dr. Anzalone said he would fix things and HE HAS!

“The surgeries have been painless and the results have been successful. Dr. Anzalone has always called after each surgery to check on how I am doing, which has not been the common practice with most doctors or dentists I have used, and is most appreciated.

“The staff treat me more like a friend than a patient. The office has a very relaxing atmosphere, and Dr. Anzalone is very personable and takes his time to explain everything so I understand what is happening.
