Restorative & Implant Dentistry

This area of orthodontics is often overlooked by patients and their general dentists. It is a special interest area of Dr. Bentele since he did a General Practice Residency and practiced as a general dentist for 11 years prior to his orthodontic residency. If extensive adult restorative treatment is contemplated then think of orthodontics as the foundation. Once implants or bridgework is placed then it is difficult to move teeth around to an ideal relationship. Periodontal disease and active decay must be resolved first so that the mouth is healthy. Then orthodontics may be employed to put the teeth in the right place before tooth replacement is accomplished. Implant placement requires adjacent roots that are parallel and sufficient room between the teeth to place the restoration. Longstanding spaces from missing teeth are often compromised by adjacent teeth tipping into the space or a tooth in the opposite arch intruding into the location where the implant tooth should go. Collaborative treatment planning between the general dentist and orthodontist are essential to visualize and produce an ideal smile and healthy mouth.

What our patients say...

We went to an evaluation at an orthodontist before this one and the price seemed kind of high so then I came to an evaluation here & not only was the price lower but immediately we felt very comfortable and loved the atmosphere of the office. The staff is wonderful, always on time & Dr. Bentele is a great Dr. - very knowledgeable, friendly & with excellent communication. I would recommend this practice to everyone!

We highly recommend Dr. Bentele and his practice. He is honest, friendly, skilled & timely - you name it. He and his staff are wonderful! Angela at the front desk is especially kind and helpful. Best of all - Dr. Bentele creates a wonderful outcome of beautiful teeth. I've experienced two other orthodontists with other children and Dr. Bentele definitely outshines all - in every way - even in cost! I can't speak highly enough about Bentele Orthodontics!

This office is extremely thorough in explaining all aspects of orthodontics from finances to procedures. I'm very confident in this office.

Dr. Bentele makes the patient feel comfortable with his skill and calm confidence. He's honest about the treatment needed and tries to keep the patient informed of the treatment.

Dr. Bentele is our orthodontist for our two children. He provided clear treatment plans with a practical approach. Dr. Bentele does all of the banding and bonding himself and the office appointments are appropriately scheduled. Our children get in and out quickly and the office is never overscheduled, resulting in short waits and unhurried treatment. We're very satisfied and would recommend our friends to see Dr. Bentele!

Dr. Bentele and all staff have been very professional and the cost was reasonable. The approach of not having braces on longer than necessary is one area where I have seen other children suffer (children who went to other orthodontists). The way Dr. Bentele explains what he is doing and why has been good for my daughter to learn the importance of her treatment. I appreciate Dr. Bentele's patience with us as we experienced a difficult financial time during the beginning of our process.
