Dental Implants in Pittston, PA
The natural and long-lasting tooth replacement solution.
What Are Dental Implants?
The best restorative solution to replace missing teeth for a beautiful smile.
If you’re missing one or more teeth, dental implants can replace them from root to crown.
Unlike a bridge or dentures, a dental implant is surgically placed into the jawbone. Over time, it permanently fuses with the bone just like a natural tooth root, creating a robust and long-lasting solution.
What does that mean for you?
Are you ready for a full, healthy smile again? Don’t wait another day!

Have Questions About Dental Implants?
- What is the procedure for dental implants? Here are the high-level steps you can expect when placing and restoring dental implants in Pittston, PA with Dr. Sal. Each patient is unique, so steps may vary depending on your needs.
- Initial consultation: Dr. Sal will listen closely to your concerns and desires so he can understand exactly what you’re looking for. From there, he’ll work with you to determine a treatment plan and get ready for your implant placement and/or restoration. For the initial implant placement, Dr. Sal will work closely with a top specialist in the area he knows and trusts.
- Dental implant placement: A small metal implant post is surgically installed into your jawbone to replace your tooth root. Anesthesia and/or sedation may be used to ease any pain or discomfort.
- Osseointegration: After the implant is placed, it will need a few months to heal, creating a sturdy and permanent foundation for your new tooth. You may receive a custom-fabricated temporary tooth while waiting for your permanent one.
- Abutment placement: Once your healing is completed, a small connector piece, known as an abutment, is attached to your implant just above the gumline.
- Crown attachment: Finally, Dr. Sal will complete your implant restoration with a beautiful new artificial tooth, attached to the implant via the abutment connector.
This entire process typically takes several months from start to finish.
By the time your treatment is complete, you’ll have a fully restored, natural-looking new tooth!
- Am I a candidate for dental implants? Implants are a great solution for most people missing one or more teeth. However, there are a few factors to consider. These include:
- Gum tissue health
- Surrounding bone density
- Overall health
The only way to know for sure if you are a candidate for dental implants is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sal. He’ll listen carefully to your concerns, evaluate your missing teeth, and determine if you are a good candidate.
- Does getting dental implants hurt? You’d be surprised – most patients claim their dental implant surgery was much easier and more comfortable than they expected!
During the procedure, you’ll be numb and won’t feel anything.
After the procedure, over-the-counter pain medications, such as Tylenol or Advil, are sufficient to ease any discomfort. If you experience discomfort, it should go away after a few days.
If fear of pain is stopping you from getting dental implants, let Dr. Sal know! He can work with you to find a solution, such as sedation dentistry.
- How much do dental implants cost? Since each patient is unique, we don’t offer one-size-fits-all solutions. Therefore, costs vary depending on your needs.
