Our Smiling Patients
When I had a 40 year old root canal on one of my front teeth go bad, I contacted Dr. Crupi, my dentist for over ten years, to determine how best to handle it. After discussing the various options, I was convinced an implant looked like the way to procede. Unfortunately the problem arose during the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays so I persuaded Dr. Crupi to let me wait until after the holidays to start the process. Given the extra bone loss during this delay the implant became a more difficult procedure, but he came up with a plan to give the best odds for a successful implant. I'm happy to say that the end result exceeded my expectations. In looking at the two front teeth it's impossible to determine which is the implant. I have had zero problems in the ensuing two years, and it was done at a very reasonable cost with minimum disruption to my daily activities.
I am proud to be a patient of Dr Brian Crupi and his professional staff for more than 8 years. With my many visits to his office I was always given best alternatives and positive solutions. My most recent services for “FULL UPPER DENTAL IMPLANTS” has given me a world of difference in my everyday life. A smile is probably ones’ best asset and although I am up in my years, I am now able to feel the confidence to share my smile with others.
Greatest thing I’ve done for my life as a “Senior”. I was down to only 12-14 teeth. I could have struggled w/ continual fillings, bridges, etc but decided to go the full route. Dr Crupi’s explanations and skills were TERRIFIC. And the pricing (I checked it out) was excellent as well. For the past 10 years my full dentures, 4 implant posts both Uppers & Lowers, have served me very well. Would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do I have to visit the dentist twice a year?
Scheduling bi-annual appointments for routine check-ups and professional cleanings are important so that we can examine your oral health and perform any diagnostic tests necessary. This allows us to monitor your teeth and address any issues before they become problematic.
During these appointments, we’ll also perform a professional cleaning to remove any plaque and tartar from building up in hard to reach areas. We’ll provide you with friendly tips on ways to improve your oral care routine, as well as inform you of your teeth’s health.
What happens during a dental filling?
During a filling, one of our experienced dentists will numb your tooth so you won’t feel a thing. Then, they’ll remove any decay within the cavity before filling it with a tooth-colored composite. We’ll shape the filling to match the contour of your tooth and surrounding teeth.
Depending on the size of the cavity, the procedure typically takes 20 to 45 minutes and fillings can last anywhere between 7 to 20 years.
Can dentists fix rotting teeth?
Tooth decay can be stopped and reversed at almost any stage. The first line of defense to stop decay is to remove it and fill the tooth with a composite filling. If the tooth is too damaged, we may recommend a natural-looking, porcelain crown.
When the decay reaches the center of the tooth where the blood vessels and nerves reside, you’ll need root canal therapy to restore the health of your tooth. If Drs. Crupi or Garris determine the tooth can’t be saved, it’s likely you’ll need an extraction to avoid further complications.
Can tooth decay spread to other teeth?
If tooth decay reaches your root canal, it can become infected. At this point, the infection can spread to other teeth. We recommend addressing tooth decay as soon as you notice any symptoms. Signs to look out for include:
- Grey, brown, or black spots on your teeth
- Tooth sensitivity
- Bad breath
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, contact our Englewood office at (941) 475-9915. You can also reach our Venice location by calling (941) 485-1111. We’ll be sure to get you in at your earliest convenience so we can stop the decay and restore your oral health.
