Dental Implants are gaining popularity for the reputation of life-like appearance.
Each year, Dental Implants have gained popularity for their life-like appearance and longevity. Much of this is attributable to the titanium post embedded in the jawbone. Because titanium has a natural affinity with bone, new cells will grow and adhere to the dental implant over time, making their connection strong and durable.
Of course, to achieve that requires implant surgery — a prospect that gives many people pause before choosing this replacement option. But implant surgery is a routine undertaking, causes very little discomfort and in trained hands has a very high success rate. Dr. Dan Iannotti is an accomplished expert in his field and his specialty is Dental Implants.
Here are 3 reasons why implant surgery is nothing to be nervous about.
The procedure is precisely planned. Implant surgery is a relatively minor procedure, mainly because all the placement details are often mapped out ahead of time. For complex situations Dr. Dan can use x-ray or CT imaging to determine the exact location for each implant and create a surgical guide to use during the procedure to make incisions and create the small channel that will hold the implant.
Implant surgery can be performed with local anesthesia. Implantation is usually easier than tooth extraction — if you’re healthy enough for that procedure you should have no problem undergoing implant surgery. With a local anesthetic, Dr. Dan will numb only the implant site and surrounding tissues while you remain conscious. If, however, you have any anxiety, Nitrous Oxide and sedation are used for the treatment of anxious and fearful patients. Dr. Dan is certified in oral conscious sedation.
There’s minimal discomfort afterward. Thanks to the pre-planned surgical guide and advanced implantation techniques, there’s very little tissue disruption and incised tissues are normally stitched with self-absorbing sutures. While some cases may require stronger pain relievers, most of the time a mild non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) such as aspirin or ibuprofen is sufficient for discomfort afterward.
The implant site heals fairly quickly and predictably with a very high success rate. A few weeks after bone integration your dentist will attach the permanent like-like crown, and you’ll be ready for many years of full function and a confident smile.

This practice is amazing. Beautiful office, friendly staff, state of the art equipment and immediately obvious that they incorporate the most advanced techniques to date. Dr. Dan is immediately likable, extremely knowledgeable and takes an interest in you as a person. Just had the easiest filling of my life. My only regret is that I didn’t learn about their practice for our family much sooner. They are a true professional asset to our community (the awesome sound system is an added bonus!)
