Dental Implants - Altamonte Springs, FL
A dental implant is a synthetic tooth root in the shape of a post that is surgically placed into the jawbone.
The “root” is usually made of titanium: the same material used in many replacement hips and knees, and a metal that is well-suited to pairing with human bone. A replacement tooth is then fixed to the post. The tooth can be either permanently attached or removable. Permanent teeth are more stable and feel more like natural teeth.

Dr. Hector Pinero's dental implant services include:
PLACEMENT OF DENTAL IMPLANTS - Single or Multiple
SINUS LIFT AUGUMENTATION A sinus lift augmentation/graft is a surgical procedure that restores the sinus cavity to its original size, and replaces the bone that has been lost as a result of the enlarged sinus.
BONE GRAFTING it is often necessary to “borrow” bone from another area of your mouth and graft it into the deficient area.
CROWN LENGTHENING Crown lengthening is a surgical procedure performed by a dentist to expose a greater amount of tooth structure for the purpose of subsequently restoring the tooth prosthetically.
RIDGE AUGUMENTATION A ridge augmentation is a common dental procedure often performed following a tooth extraction to help recreate the natural contour of the gums and jaw that may have been lost due to bone loss as a result of a tooth extraction, or for another reason.
