Naperville Implant Dentist
Naperville Dental Specialists is the office of implant dentist Dr. Anthony LaVacca.
The most effective, attractive way to replace missing teeth is with dental implants. Efforts to improve the look and function of smiles are a part of ancient history. 4000 years ago in China, bamboo pegs were used to replace missing teeth. Today's dental implants are made of durable titanium. And they can last a lifetime.
Quality dental implants improve your quality of life and give you reasons to smile.
- They fuse to the jawbone and lock in place.
- They stimulate bone growth and prevent facial sagging.
- They improve your ability to eat and speak.
- They help you smile with confidence.
Prosthodontics and Your Smile
A prosthodontist is a dental specialist with two to three years of post-dental school training in replacing and restoring teeth.
Advanced education and training is required to become proficient at surgically placing dental implants. It takes in-depth understanding of the spectrum of dental issues and of cosmetic dentistry to determine what's needed to restore function and esthetics for each patient’s smile.
We use iCAT® technology for high-definition, 3-D imaging. This advanced technology provides rapid and precise imaging while minimizing exposure to radiation. It precisely measures jawbone density and identifies the exact locations of your sinuses, nerve canals, and tooth structure for optimal placement of dental implants.
iTero® technology provides precise digital images for customized, porcelain restorations.
