Dental Implants
 

Dr. Coolican has been placing "Mini" Dental Implants since 2004 and is the MOST experienced  and placed  more "Mini" Dental Implants than any other surgeon in NEPA. He started his training under the mentorship of Dr. Todd Shatkin D.D.S.., and Dr. Benjamin Oppenheimer D.D.S., both world renowned clinicians and lecturers of Buffalo, New York.. A founding member of the International Academy of Mini Dental Implants, Dr. Coolican has placed thousands of these "mini" or "small" diameter dental implants successfully in his practice and other areas of Northeast Pennsylvania. He can utilize the benefits of mini implant dentistry for his patients to immediately replace a broken tooth, full mouth reconstruction, or stabilize and secure removable dentures. Wether you a have a dental emergency situation or desire a "second opinion" on any procedure, Dr. Coolican can be consulted by calling the office for a complimentary visit.


Dental implants are a permanent and appealing solution to replace missing or extracted teeth. They are better than other alternatives like bridges because no additional teeth need to be altered to place the new tooth.
The entire implant process is performed over the course of a few months. The first part of the process is to install the implant itself, where a screw is placed into the jaw bone. An incision is made in the gum so that the implant can be inserted. Multiple implants can be placed at once if necessary. After the implants are placed the gums are sutured.

The implant must be allowed about 3-6 months to heal, and during this time the jaw bone will form around the implant in a process called osseointegration. During this healing time you can have temporary crowns installed so that you can eat and speak normally and maintain a proper aesthetic appearance for your smile.

After the implant has healed it is time to place an abutment on the implant. The abutment serves as the base for your new tooth. One this is placed an impression of the abutment is taken and is used to create your permanent restoration. Some offices have an onsite lab to create the crown, but others will have to send it to an outside lab. Once the restoration is completed you can return to the office to attach the restoration permanently. Your smile will look just like it used to, and after a short period of getting used to the implant it will feel just like one of your own teeth.
