Missing Teeth - Modesto, CA

Is Your Smile Incomplete?

Live Life Without Limits

When you are living without a full, healthy set of teeth you are living with unnecessary limits. Your diet is limited because it is uncomfortable to eat many foods when you are missing teeth. You rarely smile because you’re embarrassed about its poor condition. When you lost those teeth you also lost valuable protection for your jaws, which rely on stimulation from tooth roots. Without it, your jawbone can deteriorate. With dental implants, you can virtually eat anything you want again! Smile without hesitation. Maintain your jaw health and facial aesthetics. At Central Valley Periodontics & Implants we offer the best available antidote to missing teeth in Modesto, CA or anywhere.

A board-certified periodontist, Dr. Clarke Filippi completed three years of advanced, specialized training beyond dental school that included dental implant placement. He then further expanded his implant expertise with training from the esteemed Pikos Institute. Today, Dr. Filippi is still adding new implant techniques and technology to his repertoire through many hours of continuing education courses each year. With the extensive skills and experience he’s gained since going into practice in 2001, Dr. Filippi has turned replacing missing teeth into an art form. We invite you to see his work for yourself!
