Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that replace a broken or missing tooth, and support a realistic-looking artificial tooth, also known as a crown. The procedure is a very well-tested, extraordinarily successful way to restore broken or missing teeth. Dr. Skorupko uses “Piezo” technology, or very fine vibration, instead of traditional drills to prepare the jaw for implant placement. This makes the procedure less painful and speeds up the healing process for patients. All the phases of the procedure, from the surgical placement of the implant to crafting a prosthetic tooth that is virtually indistinguishable from a real tooth, are done by Dr. Skorupko and his staff.
