Hazzouri Cosmetic, Implant & Family Dentistry was established in 1949 by Dr. Albert A. Hazzouri Sr. Since then, the name Hazzouri has become a household word among Scranton and Northeast Pennsylvania-area residents, synonymous with the very best in dental care and affordability.
Following in his father’s footsteps, his son has become an outstanding cosmetic dentist in the Scranton Wilkes/Barre area. Dr. Albert A. Hazzouri Jr, says that, “In our office, we share two simple beliefs. With the finest care, any smile can be beautiful, and everyone should be able to afford a beautiful smile. Our quality care is kept within every family’s budget. Dr. Louis A. Genello and I provide all the quality dentistry your family will ever need.”
Dr. Albert A. Hazzouri Jr., graduated from Scranton Preparatory School 1974, received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Biology in 1978 from Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York, and his Master of Science in Biochemistry in 1980 from the University of Scranton.
Replacing a single tooth with a single tooth implant does not endanger the health of the neighboring teeth. Because a dental implant will replace your tooth root, the bone is better preserved. Dental implants integrate with your jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and intact. Several missing teeth can also be replaced with individual implants. This method will place a dental implant at the site of each missing tooth, providing ideal replicas of your lost teeth. Multiple teeth may also be restored with an implant bridge, which is a prosthetic comprised of three or more crown units, depending upon the number of missing teeth.
One of the most rewarding and exciting new procedures in dentistry today is the system for making your previously loose dentures tight and comfortable. Mini dental implants provide denture patients with the ability to eat, smile, and speak with confidence. In as little as 1 hour, 4-6 dental implants can be placed, and your dentures can be fitted over the implants. The patient leaves the office with a stable denture, which can be used IMMEDIATELY. In addition, placement of these implants results in little to no post-operative discomfort. Many patients who were not candidates for conventional implants because they didn’t have enough bone or because of finances are now mini dental implant candidates.
Made of Hybrid Resin or Zirconia, the removable bridge involves the placement of between 6-10 implants, determined by bone volume and bone quality. This is a fixed hybrid bridge that can be detached by the dentist as needed at recall cleaning visits.
