Peabody Dentist Conducting Mini Dental Implant Study

PEABODY, MA--(Marketwired - July 28, 2015) - Dr. John Argeros, a leading dental implant provider, is looking for patients to be involved in a special mini dental implant study group.

Dr. Argeros, who operates Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology, will conduct the study the week of July 20. The Peabody dental practice is offering patients a free consultation to determine if they are candidates for mini dental implants.

Mini dental implants are used on patients who have worn dentures for years and do not have enough jawbone to support traditional implants. Like conventional implants, mini dental implants naturally fuse to the jawbone and prevent future jawbone loss. Mini dental implants are less expensive than traditional dental implants and often can be placed without bone grafting.

"Patients are more and more interested in dental implants and want to have dental implants placed so they can regain the ability to chew, speak and smile," Dr. Argeros said. "This study gives a number of patients the chance to see their dreams come true. This treatment can be performed under IV sedation so that all patients can be free of the fear during their treatment."

The study will evaluate the use of mini dental implants compared with traditional dental implants. Patients who participate in the study will have their dental implants placed at a reduced cost by Dr. Argeros.

"Patients who have entered the study are thrilled to be able to regain control of their lives and stop the pain of loose, poor-fitting dentures or the embarrassment of failing or missing teeth," Dr. Argeros said.

Dr. Argeros, who is a graduate of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, has served the Peabody community for more than 35 years. Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology offers All on 4 dental implants, implants for dentures, crowns, bridges, veneers, teeth whitening, sedation dentistry, and most recently, endodontics.

Dr. Argeros began incorporating dental implantology into his practice in the 1980s. His experienced and well-trained staff uses the latest technology to serve patients through paperless dental management software, CT scans, digital radiology, intra-oral cameras and CAD/CAM restorations. Contemporary Dentistry and Implantology uses the i-CAT, a Cone Beam Computerized Tomography scanning system that shows a complete scan in just nine seconds.

Dr. Argeros is one of a few hundred dentists in the world who holds a certification in dental implants from the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry. He also is the former president of the Massachusetts Dental Society of Anesthesiology. In 2009, Dr. Argeros earned the prestigious Fellowship in the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and was also appointed to the review board for the academy’s publication, The Journal of Oral Implantology. He is a member of the Massachusetts Dental Society, North Shore District Dental Society, Academy of Osseointegration, American Dental Society of Anesthesiology, American Dental Association and holds a Mastership in the International Congress of Oral Implantology. Dr. Argeros also has provided restorative dental treatment at the North Shore Medical Center at Union Hospital since 1979.

Dr. Plourde focuses on restorative dentistry and is certified in the Bicon, 3I and Branemark implant systems. He joined the practice in 1990.
