Our Smileboston Experience centers around personalized, comfortable, and comprehensive oral health care, as we work to go beyond expectations in technology, financial flexibility, comprehensive dental care, comfort and communication. When it comes to choosing a dental practice, we know there are many options in the Greater Boston area. At Smileboston, here’s how we work for you: Dr. Spitz has always had an eye for up-and-coming technology since he opened Smileboston in 1997.
Dental implants are titanium or ceramic posts that are 'implanted' in the jawbone, acting as artificial tooth roots. Over time, they fuse with your bone and act as anchors for permanent replacement teeth. Tooth replacement begins with a consultation, an examination, and a 'records visit' including a CBCT, x-rays, photos, 3D scanned impressions, etc. A treatment plan is then discussed and created with you and your dentist. This plan may include tooth extractions and bone grafts to prepare the site for the dental implants and new teeth.
The Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) is a minimally invasive treatment option to address gum recession. Unlike traditional grafting techniques that treat gum recession, the Pinhole Surgical Technique is incision and suture-free. John Chao, DDS developed and patented this breakthrough treatment and Dr. Spitz was one of the first dentists on the east coast to become Advanced Certified to perform the Pinhole Surgical Technique™. During the procedure, a specialized dental tool is used to make a small 'pinhole' in the gum tissue.
