Dental Implants for Easton, Phillipsburg and The Lehigh Valley
Do you have missing teeth? Do you feel it affects your relationships personally and professionally? If you feel embarrassed about the gaps in your smile so much so that you avoid social situations or hide your smile from others, then we at the Center for Implantology invite you to consider dental implants.
Dental implants are a terrific option for replacing missing teeth. Not only will dental implants improve your appearance, but they also stop the negative impact that missing teeth have on your oral health. Did you know that people with missing teeth have an increased risk of gum disease? They can also suffer bone loss? In addition, the teeth on either of side of the gap often loosen or shift—and sometimes fall out, too!

Center for Implantology
Dental implants begin with an implant fixture that’s embedded into the jawbone. Since titanium is bio-compatible, the jawbone treats the implant fixture like a tooth root and will fuse around it.
What to Expect?
If you’re replacing one tooth, then one of our esteemed dentists will place a porcelain crown on the implant fixture. Or if you’re replacing several teeth with a dental prosthesis—such as crown and bridge or dentures—then the implant can serve as a permanent anchor point. If you've lost all of the teeth in your upper or lower arch and are a candidate for a full denture, we can provide implant-supported dentures as well.
We will use a 3D CAT scan to perform facial imaging. In just five minutes, we can use computerized technology to get a precise picture of the size and placement of your implants. At the Center for Implantology, we offer complete, comprehensive dental implant treatments. You work with the same doctor from the very beginning of the implant process to the completion of your new smile. We do all the procedures needed for your dental implants, including bone grafting and other techniques, to ensure your implant functions well and looks beautiful. We offer detailed pre- and post-op instructions to help you recover as soon as possible.
We use a variety of implant materials to suit the dental implant needs of our The Lehigh Valley patients. Most dental implant surgeries take at least six months between the implanting of the implant fixture to the placement of the crown or the dental prosthesis. At DeMartino Dental Group, P.C. we offer a unique opportunity for patients to get their implant fixtures and their crowns within four to six weeks! We are the only office in The Lehigh Valley that offers the new, cutting-edge Trabecular Metal Implant. We can complete the process of implant placement and crown placement in less than two months using Trabecular Metal Implants by Zimmer. Zimmer’s Trabecular Metal dental implants are three-dimensional, giving the implant nearly the same structure and porosity of natural bone. Since it offers a bone-like structure, the implant fuses more quickly, giving patients amazing stability, in a much shorter amount of time.
We offer discounts to patients who complete the entire dental implant process—from implant fixtures to crowns—with the Center for Implantology. We work with both medical and dental health insurance companies to ensure you receive the most coverage possible for your dental implant surgery. Most dental practices do not offer this service, and we are happy to provide yet another singular dental service to our The Lehigh Valley patients!
