Why Patients Choose Us
Are you looking for a dentist you can trust to place your dental implants? Here at Towne Centre Family Dental, our philosophy is to provide families with affordable, high-quality dental care.
When you visit our office in Somerset County, you’ll get to meet our friendly team and experience the warm atmosphere we create for our patients. Dr. Al Internoscia will talk to you about your smile goals so he can recommend the treatment that’s right for you.
We feature advanced equipment to make your care as comfortable and effective as possible. For example, we were one of the first dental practices in New Jersey to utilize safe digital x-rays. In keeping with our commitment to your health and safety, we’ve been completely amalgam-free since 1993.
Step One– Your Free Consultation
Your consultation with Dr. Al is a relaxed, no-pressure experience where you’ll get the opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns you may have about the dental implant process.
You can share your smile goals with Dr. Al. Our implant patients want to be able to smile again without concern. They also want to improve their ability to eat comfortably and speak clearly — luckily, that’s exactly what we do.
Dr. Al will also perform an oral examination including a complimentary CBCT scan that will provide us with a detailed picture of your teeth, gums, and jaw. This is an easy process that takes about a minute to complete. Then we’ll be ready to develop your unique treatment plan.
Once Dr. Al has created a precise plan that’s suitable for your needs, you can talk to someone from our office about your payment and financing options. The next step is scheduling your treatment calendar.
Step Two– Implant Surgery
Dr. Al will surgically place the implant fixture, the section of the implant that forms a secure attachment to your jawbone through a process known as osseointegration. It typically takes three to six months for your jawbone to fully integrate with the implant fixture. But in many cases, we can speed the process up, often completing the whole procedure in about two weeks.
Step Three– Your Beautiful New Smile
After your body is completely acclimated to the implant fixture, you’ll return to our office so Dr. Al can place your final restoration — a stunning porcelain crown that’s custom-made to match your smile.
We use our digital impression of your smile to determine the ideal location to surgically place your dental implants. This makes your treatment faster and more comfortable while reducing your recovery time.
Many dentists still make their dental impression the old-fashioned way — by having their patients sit in the dental chair while dental putty hardens in their mouth. But with our advanced TRIOS digital scanner, Dr. Al uses a small intraoral camera to generate a detailed digital impression of your smile.
Once Dr. Al attaches your natural-looking restoration, you’ll be free to laugh, smile, and eat whatever you want. It’s time to start living without restrictions.
Anxious About Dental Care? Relax With Sedation Dentistry
Many patients are apprehensive about receiving dental care. Here at our Hillsborough office, we feature sedation dentistry to eliminate your anxiety.
We offer three sedation options — nitrous oxide, oral conscious, and general anesthesia — to ease your worries and allow you to feel comfortable throughout your procedure. If you select anesthesia, we have Dr. Glen Atlas, a board-certified anesthesiologist, to safely administer and monitor your sedation.
