Dental implants are the most recent innovation for restoring Missing or failing teeth that can no longer be saved with the root canal treatment

Implants composed of a bio compatible part that becomes, with time, part of the jaw. Secured to the implant is an Abutment that serves as a core for the final restoration that is the crown. Over time, bone will continue to grow around the implant in a process called Osteo-Integration. providing it with extra stability.These are designed to be long lasting, and with care can last for many years. They are not your teeth but can function just like them.

Patients with dentures especially the lower one might face a problem of reduced stability, for those lower dentures, our dentists in Watertown, will after detailed Imaging and Examination might recommend two or four implants to help stabilizing the complete denture in a procedure called Implants Over Dentures

Our dentists in Watertown office, are trained and experienced in implant placement.
A dentures or partial dentures are removable replacement for missing teeth. Dentures usually made from acrylic resin and may contain other materials such as porcelain or metal. There are different types of dentures some can be fit to go over implants, some utilizes the adjacent natural dentition as an anchor.

The making of a denture usually requires a series of appointments. Our dentists coordinate appointments with our state of the art dental laboratories so that you may receive the best possible service. Even though dentures are not a replacement for natural teeth they should be made to feel comfortable and provide function and esthetics.

Dentures may be the treatment choice necessary for you if you’ve lost, or are losing four or more consecutive teeth.
Root Canal

For Root Canals upon your visit to our Watertown practice, Our dentists at Professional Dental Image perform the necessary examination, take radiographs to assess the restorability of the affected tooth, our dentists will share the findings with you and recommend the best treatment.

In cases of toothache, it is sometimes required to do a routine procedure known as Root Canal Treatment (RCT), a procedure is now performed routinely and yields much more predictable outcome thanks to our state of the art magnification tools using Endodontics Microscope.

Same Day Crowns

CEREC makes exactly this possible. CEREC stands for speed and a comfortable treatment without impression tray, without annoying provisional and with only one injection. A win-win situation: Less time taken off work and the patient get to have the best treatment. With over hundreds of CEREC crowns successfully were made and placed, our dentists in Watertown practice are trained to give you the best experience possible.

Here is how the CEREC machine works: Using a specialized 3D camera, the dentist will first scan the inside of your mouth, to be able to see a complete view of the condition of your teeth. Next, the computer will design a crown based on your scanned photo. Your customized design will get sent to the CEREC milling machine, and gets constructed right in our office. Finally, the crown gets fitted into your tooth to match perfectly with your natural smile, and you walk out within one hour and a half! Conventional crowns take a minimum of two visits to get a crown; the first visit usually consists of getting anesthesia and an impression. A temporary crown is placed until the dental laboratory creates a permanent crown. On your second visit, your permanent crown will be adjusted and then permanently cemented it into place.

There are some cases where the crown that comes back from the lab doesn’t fit properly and a second impression must be taken. Your crown would essentially be sent back for re-adjustments, and you’d have to schedule a third office visit. With Professional Dental Image and CEREC technology, we don’t waste your valuable time!

2. Our laboratory create a demonstration of your proposed treatment using wax model.

3. If both patient and dentist agree on the plan.

A veneer is a thin (1-1.5 mm) layer of porcelain, that cover the facial part of the tooth after minor prepping, after that we take an impression for the preps, now if it is a single tooth veneer, our office in Watertown has a state of the Art Cerec machine ito give you the best results, but if we are restoring your smile on more than a tooth, we will recommend asking our Laboratory, one of the top dental laboratories nationwide to create them for us.
