SMITHFIELD SCITUATE FOSTER GLOCESTER | BREEZE & OBSERVER | OCTOBER 31-NOVEMBER 6, 2019 IN OUR SCHOOLS 21 LaPerche Elementary School held a Spooktacular Movie Night last Friday. CHRIS RAPACIOLI very carefully carried the pumpkin that he and his daughter Aria, a 2nd-grader at LaPerche, decorated with individual pieces of candy corn. The project took 15 hours and used eight bags of candy. BREEZE PHOTOS BY ROBERT EMERSON ARYANA VIDOT, a LaPerche 3rd-grader, points to the pumpkin she decorated for the Spooktacular Movie Night at Raymond C. LaPerche Elementary on Friday night.

IMMEDIATE IMPLANTS When a patient has enough natural bone, an "immediate load" dental implant may allow for placement of a temporary tooth directly after the natural tooth has been extracted. This technique was developed in response to patients' desire for quicker treatment than one would receive with traditional tooth implantation, which can take many months and multiple office visits to complete. Immediate placement and loading of a single implant are made possible with the use of an implant with a tapered body, designed to promote high stability while the implant is integrated into the surrounding tissue and bone. These implants are not for everyone, including those who smoke, grind their teeth, have an autoimmune disease, hygiene issues, or a chronic disease. Implants have had a significant impact on the lives of thousands of people. In addition to their cosmetic appeal, implants allow people to enjoy a healthy and varied diet without the restrictions some denture wearers face. To find out of this method of tooth replacement is for you, call DENTAL ARTS GROUP for a consultation at 401-521-3661. One visit to our office at 1136 Hartford Ave., Johnston, will show you just how satisfying and rewarding a trip to the dentist can be. Office hours are by appointment Monday-Thursday 8a.m. to 4p.m.; Friday 8a.m. to 12p.m. P.S. An "immediate load" dental implant known as the "All-On-4" lower denture is actually comprised of four implants that are placed in the jaw bone to give support for an entire denture.
