More about Dr. Robert J Mazzetti

Most patients relax with intravenous sedation during the procedure. In addition, a long-acting anesthetic is used which minimizes any postoperative discomfort and soreness. Over the counter medication is usually sufficient for pain management. Indeed, most patients find implant placement to have less pain than simple tooth extraction. Dr. Mazzetti and his staff will go over post-op instructions carefully and thoroughly prior to and the day of your surgery. The vast majority return to their normal routine the next day. What factors contribute to long-term success of Dental Implants? One of the critical factors in being a good candidate for implants and for long-term success is not smoking. Daily hygiene will contribute largely to a lasting result, in addition to quarterly visits to a professional hygienist. Of course the quality of the dentist who places the crowns is tantamount to success.   Can I Afford Implants? Although Dental Implants may initially be more expensive than other treatment methods, it often turns out to be a much better financial investment since most implants will last a lifetime. Other treatment methods such as bridges and dentures require alterations, adjustments, and replacement. A full upper denture covers the palate of the mouth where many tastebuds are located, and the average denture patient eats at 15-20% efficiency. Implants are natural looking and feeling, giving the sense that one has natural teeth again!  The Smart Choice You need to replace a tooth. Your family dentist says you have several treatment options, including a fixed bridge or a dental implant. You’ve heard of dental implants, but you know very little about them. In all likelihood, three questions will pop into your mind: Are dental implants the right choice? Will the procedure hurt? How much will it cost? The answers might surprise you. Since the placement of dental implants involves a surgical procedure, some postoperative discomfort may be involved; but thanks to the training and expertise of Dr. Mazzetti, the discomfort is usually minimal. You can be sure every effort will be made to minimize your anxiety and discomfort. While the initial cost of implants is slightly more than alternatives, their longevity, functionality and durability make them a good investment. When properly cared for, dental implants can last a lifetime. In the long run, they are the better investment in your overall health, appearance and well-being since they also preserve the integrity of facial structures. When one or more teeth are missing, you may experience bone loss that could, over time, affect denture fit, requiring additional expense, frequent adjustment and/or replacement. Add the ongoing cost of denture adhesives, special cleaning solutions and equipment, and the cost of conventional dentures climbs even higher. The actual cost of implant treatment is based on several factors, including the number of teeth being replaced, the type of implant recommended and whether additional procedures are necessary to achieve the proper aesthetic and functional results. The only way to accurately estimate the cost of dental implants is to make an appointment with Dr. mazzetti for an examination and consultation. Quality of Life Cost certainly plays a role in the selection of dental implants, but it is insignificant when you consider the quality of life enjoyed by patients with dental implants as compared to the lifestyle endured by those with dentures. Dentures often make a person feel and look older, cause embarrassment in social situations when they slip and click, and restrict the everyday pleasure of eating comfortably. Dental implants, however, look and function like natural teeth, and provide a better sense of self-assurance and self-image. With secure and natural appearing dental implants, you don’t have to think about your teeth between regular dental check-ups.
