The loss of a tooth can be both painful and embarrassing, but it doesn’t have to be a permanent problem. A replacement tooth known as a dental implant can be placed into the jaw to repair the smile and boost confidence.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth inserted directly into the jaw through a simple and innovative procedure. Implants mirror the appearance and feel of a real tooth, can smooth out rough spots in a smile, and can improve a person’s ability to speak and eat. Should there be any need for further dental work such as a crown or bridge, an implant also provides an excellent anchor for these replacements.
Most people find that implants feel more natural and secure than dentures and other substitutes. If you have otherwise healthy gums and bone, you could be an ideal candidate for dental implants. Don’t let a lost or disfigured tooth cause unnecessary discomfort or shame ? call Dr?s Mann and Dolfi today and prepare to show off your new smile with confidence and pride.

A lucky few feel comfortable when they wear their dentures. Every other denture wearer is left to contend with slippage, wobbling, discomfort and in many cases, pain. This is because without teeth, the underlying bone deteriorates and the denture no longer fits. The lips are working so hard to keep the denture in place, a natural smile doesn’t come naturally at all.
Dr. Mann offers a solution to patients who suffer from improper fitting dentures. The entire procedure can be completed in a matter of hours, with results that can be quite stunning. The MDI System also known as the Mini Denture Implants consist of a miniature titanium implant that acts like the root of your tooth and a retaining fixture that is incorporated into the base of your denture. The placement of the implants is accomplished quickly and easily in approximately 2 – 3 hours, using local anesthetic or light sedation to help make you more comfortable. MDI Implants are placed into the jawbone. The heads of the implants protrude from the gum tissue and provide a strong, solid foundation for securing your dentures. It is a one-step procedure that involves minimally invasive surgery, no sutures nor the typical months of healing.
