Our Procedures

Dental Implants in Erie, Pa.

What is a Dental Implant?

The surgeons at Armanini, Kolodychak, & Basile, L.L.P. are experts in implantology. Implant supported teeth are similarly structured to natural teeth. At our Practice, we utilize a biocompatible titanium cylinder to replace the root structure of a natural tooth, and have a success rate between 90-95%. Once the implant has been placed, the implant must have an appropriate amount of time to heal, or osseointegrate. At this point, you will be referred back to your General Dentist to have the crown fabricated and placed on the dental implant.

Wisdom Teeth Removal in Erie, Pa.

What to Know About Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Third molars, or wisdom teeth as they are commonly called, typically develop around the age of eighteen. Drs. Armanini, Kolodychak, and Basile, specialize in the removal of third molars, and recommend an evaluation around this age. Many times, your Orthodontist and/or General Dentist will refer you for this care. If your third molars need to be removed, we offer a variety of anesthetic options specifically tailored to each individual. Should you have questions about wisdom teeth removal, we encourage you to reach out to our experienced and knowledgeable staff today!

Other Tooth Extractions

Tooth removal should be viewed as a necessity when other efforts to save the tooth have failed. Drs. Armanini, Kolodychak, and Basile, will work together with your referring Dentist to deliver your necessary care.

Teeth that are non-restorable, severely decayed, or showing advanced periodontal disease, are likely indicated for removal. Occasionally, impacted teeth may be poorly positioned, and require removal or additional treatment in conjunction with orthodontic therapy. Our doctors will discuss all types of treatment options available to you.

Bone Grafting

If you have inadequate bone structure due to previous procedures, pathology, or injury, our doctors may be able to treat the bone deficient site with a variety of bone grafting techniques. Bone grafting also plays an important role in preparing extraction sites for possible future implant placement. After a tooth is removed, the surgical site begins to heal, but the surrounding bone can also resorb. As such, we recommend bone grafting at the time of tooth removal, if you’re considering replacing the tooth with a dental implant. All available options for bone grafting will be discussed at your consultation appointment.
