Complete Your Smile

At Warren Family Dentistry, we understand that living with missing teeth can hinder speaking and eating abilities as well as take a toll on your self-confidence. That’s why we offer customized dental implants to restore the natural look, feel, and function of your smile. Regain confidence in your smile once again with implants and discover why they’re the leading restorative dental solution.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are a permanent solution for patients missing any number of teeth. These natural-looking restorations are designed to mimic tooth roots for a fully functional smile. Implants are titanium posts that are strategically placed into the jawbone for a lifetime of healthy smiles. Our Warren dental team uses computer-guided technology to ensure a reliably precise implant placement.

Each dental implant is made up of three parts:

  • The Implant: This is the threaded post that serves as a root for your new tooth. The implant is permanently attached to your jaw. 
  • The Abutment: The permanent connector that supports and holds one or more restoration crowns.
  • The Custom Restoration: Also known as the prosthetic tooth, this is the visible part of your smile, typically a porcelain crown to ensure durability and a natural appearance.

  • Easy to maintain
  • Resistant to decay

Receiving Your Dental Implants

Achieving your dream smile with dental implants can be completed through multiple visits to our Warren dental office.

First Consultation

Your first consultation with Dr. Chirco will consist of a full-mouth examination of the teeth, gums, and jawbone. This allows us to determine if dental implants are the right restorative option for your individual needs. 

Certain patients may need to first undergo a supplemental procedure, such as a bone graft, to ensure the success of their implant treatment. If you fall under this category, we’ll let you know during your initial consultation. We’ll also address any questions or concerns you may have at this time. 

Implant Placement

Once we’ve determined that implants are perfect for you, you’ll come back to our Warren office for implant placement. Dr. Chirco will surgically place your dental implants directly into your jaw. We’ll protect the surgical area with a healing cap during the recovery process. In most cases, it’ll take three to six months for the implant to fully fuse with your jawbone. This is a natural process called osseointegration.

Custom Restoration

Once you’ve fully recovered from your implant surgery, you’ll return to our Warren office for a final appointment so Dr. Chirco can attach your custom restoration. Depending on your needs, this may be one or more porcelain crowns, a fixed dental bridge, or full-arch dentures. After your restoration is attached, you’ll walk out of our office with a stunning new smile.
