Dental Implants
Implants are an excellent solution to replace missing teeth. They offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Providing a stable foundation to help you eat your favorite foods
  • Allowing you to speak without slurring or mumbling your words
  • Stopping jawbone deterioration to bring back facial support
  • Giving you a new, fresh look.

Can Dr. Sarant place my implants?

Yes, he can! Dr. Sarant is a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists… This text opens a new tab to the official website…, allowing him to place and restore dental implants in the same office. This means you don’t need to hop around to different offices.

What can I expect?

First, Dr. Sarant will place a titanium post within the jawbone to mimic your tooth root. Once healed, he’ll screw on the abutment to make room for a dental crown, which is created and restored right in our office. In the end, you’ll walk out of our office with a new, brilliant smile!

Crowns & Bridges
Crowns: Many restorations are fabricated using a metal lining covered with porcelain. These types of crowns are used because they are cheap and easy to place in the mouth. They are opaque or flat-looking because they do not let light pass through as a natural tooth does. There is often a dark or gray line next to the gumline.

We provide exclusively all-porcelain bonded restorations. When properly placed, they are as strong if not stronger than the porcelain-covered metal crowns. Notice the appearance of natural teeth again. Metal-free dentistry can restore your full dentition back to natural form and beauty.

Bridges: A bridge is a custom device anchored to neighboring teeth that replaces one or more missing teeth. When a lost tooth is replaced with bridgework, the teeth on either side of the missing one are prepared as crowns to serve as abutments to hold the prosthetic (replacement) tooth in place.

Crowns and bridges are most commonly prepared from high-quality materials such as semi-precious or precious metals, porcelain, or a fused combination of the two. Aesthetics, function, and tissue compatibility are considered when selecting the material most suitable for you.

Metal-Free Fillings

Until recently, dental patients have been told that repairing teeth with white fillings was just for cosmetic purposes, and white fillings may not be as durable as the metal restorations. This philosophy is now passé.

With the modern technologies of dental adhesion, resins, lasers, and state-of-the-art ceramics, the new porcelain restorations are close to rivaling nature in strength, wear, function, and appearance.

There are now sixteen-year studies showing that with properly administered techniques, these advanced restorations surpass traditional dentistry.

With these new materials, it is possible to bond teeth back together, virtually restoring them back to their virgin strength without the invasiveness of full-coverage crowns.

In the majority of circumstances, metal fillings or crowns can be replaced with techniques that are more conservative. It is, therefore, possible to preserve the healthy, remaining tooth structure, rather than whittling teeth down, as a pencil would be ground away by a pencil sharpener.

Full Mouth Rehabilitation

Full mouth restoration involves restoring the teeth, bite, muscles, and self-esteem back to a natural-looking and youthful-feeling condition. It typically requires a combination of restorative and cosmetic treatments.

Using computerized technology and an artistic eye, Dr. Sarant fixes many problems with this service, such as broken-down restorations, heat-sensitive teeth, sore jaw muscles, and recurring headaches.

Sleep Apnea
Do you or your significant other snore? It could be a sign of sleep apnea, potentially leading to serious health risks if not treated properly. This disease is caused by the lack of oxygen going to your brain while you sleep.

Normally, a CPAP machine is needed to help combat sleep apnea, but this device can be cumbersome.

At The Dental Market, we’re committed to providing you with non-invasive solutions, which is why we offer SomnoMed to help control sleep apnea.

The SomnoMed custom mouthpiece is comfortable to wear at night and patients have commented their snoring stopped almost immediately. Please contact our office for more information!

Physiologic Neuromuscular Dentistry

Physiologic neuromuscular dentistry is the art and science of using the relaxed position of the head and neck muscles to place the jaw into an optimal physiologic position.

It’s also used in finding the optimal jaw position before restorative dentistry and greatly increases the longevity of restorations and natural dentition.

Over a period of time, structural problems can lead to pain, tension, and spasms. If you have experienced headaches, migraines, and/or muscle pains in your face or upper back, you may have an unbalanced temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Physiologic neuromuscular dentistry by Dr. Sarant can help!

Few people realize your dentist is able to help relieve headaches, but it’s true.

The pain starts when muscles connecting the jaw bone to the skull are strained in an awkward position. By examining the entire joint system of bones, muscles, and teeth, Dr. Sarant can relieve pain by optimally positioning the joint. This helps muscles maintain a comfortable position, and the teeth and jaw are more comfortable opening and closing.

Here are some TMJ symptoms to watch for:

  • Headaches or migraines
  • Tooth wear
  • Clicking or popping of the jaw joint when chewing
  • Tingling fingers
  • Dizziness
  • Muscle pain in the face and neck

Don’t live in pain! Call to learn more about TMJ dentistry relief from Dr. Sarant today.
