Mini-Implant Cosmetic Dentistry Seminar to be held at Oak Point in October

September 30, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
On Monday, October 29th, from 5 to 7 p.m., Dr. Santelli will conduct a complimentary one-hour presentation in Mini-implant dental technology at Oak Point, a 55-and-over community for active adults, located at 200 Oak Point Drive in Middleboro. Light refreshments will be served.

Dr. Santelli is certified in mini-implant technology as well as a member of the International Association of Mini Dental Implants, and he has made them his specialty. He is the only mini-implant provider in the area who does mini-implants as well as the follow up restoration.

Mini-implants are one-third the size of conventional implants, half the cost and they provide patients with the highest level of security in tooth replacement with regard to day to day activities such as speaking and eating. The entire procedure is all done by hand without drilling, surgery or sutures and is completed in one to two appointments.

Dr. Santelli offers complimentary one-hour presentations about the benefits of mini-implants to special groups (30 people maximum) such as Councils on Aging, retirement and assisted living communities, libraries and non-profit organizations.

According to Dr. Santelli, “Essentially, a patient could walk into our dental spa wearing a denture and walk out with a full mouth of teeth, thanks to the innovation of mini-implants.”

The Center for Progressive Dentistry is an innovative dental spa that concentrates on cosmetic, restorative and general dentistry. The practice’s mission is to provide patients with the smile of their dreams, while emphasizing patient comfort in a “spa-like” atmosphere. In addition to mini-implants, the Center for Progressive Dentistry’s full range of cosmetic dentistry services include veneers, whitening and more.

Since comfort is of the utmost importance at the upscale practice; a plush, calm and soothing environment is a must for patients. Wand anesthetic is used, so patients do not feel a sting when it is administered. The dental chair has a massage feature and patients may choose to have a gentle massage during their treatment. At the conclusion of each appointment, patients are able to relax in a massage chair in the Recovery Spa, which is complete with dim lighting, soft music, candles and a waterfall feature.
