Duxbury, MA, United States, 2007/03/07 - Dr. Joseph Santelli of the Center for Progressive Dentistry, a state-of-the-art dental spa that recently opened in Duxbury, has announced the availability of mini-implants for cosmetic and restorative procedures.
Catering to patients south of Boston for more than 30 years, Dr. Santelli’s specialty is mini-implants, which are very similar to natural teeth and can replace single or multiple missing front or back teeth or even replace a full mouth of teeth. They may also be attached to crowns and are ideal for stabilizing removable full dentures.
Mini-implants are one-third the size of conventional implants, half the cost and they provide patients with the highest level of security in tooth replacement with regard to day to day activities such as speaking and eating. They do not require adhesives and they don’t slip, move or irritate gums. The installation procedure is all done by hand without drilling, surgery or sutures and is completed in one to two appointments.
“Mini implants are a relatively painless procedure requiring only a mild anesthesia. Patients get a completely reliable system that is even more affordable than conventional implants,” explained Dr. Santelli, who is a member of the International Association of Mini Dental Implants. He continued, “Essentially, patients can have their appointment in the morning and be comfortably eating their lunch by mid-day.”
Dr. Santelli offers seminars to discuss the mini dental implant technology to Councils on Aging, retirement and assisted living communities. He is available for speaking engagements.
The Center for Progressive Dentistry is an innovative dental spa that concentrates on cosmetic, restorative and general dentistry. The practice’s mission is to provide patients with the smile of their dreams, while emphasizing patient comfort in a “spa-like” atmosphere. In addition to mini-implants, the Center for Progressive Dentistry’s full range of cosmetic dentistry services include veneers, whitening and more.
Since comfort is of the utmost importance at the upscale practice; a plush, calm and soothing environment is a must for patients. Wand anesthetic is used, so patients do not feel a sting when it is administered. The dental chair has a massage feature and patients may choose to have a gentle massage during their treatment. At the conclusion of each appointment, patients are able to relax in a massage chair in the Recovery Spa, which is complete with dim lighting, soft music, candles and a waterfall feature.
