Meet Our Dentist in Bethesda, MD: Dr. Vincent Prestipino

Dentist in Bethesda, Maryland

BIO

Dr. Prestipino received his D.D.S. degree from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry and his post-doctoral certificate in Prosthodontics at New York University School of Dentistry. He had held a position as an Assistant Clinical Professor at New York University and was Associate Professor in the Department of Prosthodontics at the University of Maryland School O Dentistry. Dr. Prestipino has lectured nationally and internationally on esthetic and implant dentistry and actively contributes to postgraduate education. He has also developed and patented more than 7 patents in Dentistry.

His early involvement with aesthetic implant dentistry has led to the development of several implant components. He co-developed the first all-ceramic dental implant abutment and obtained the FDA 510(K) Clearance, upon which all ceramic abutments are permitted to be marketed within the USA.

He has several publications on different topics in Dentistry. Dr. Prestipino is a Fellow of the Greater New York Academy of Prosthodontics, the Academy of Osseointegration, a member of The American College of Prosthodontists, The American Dental Association, and several Dental Societies in the State of Maryland.

 Patents and Developments:

Apparatuses and methods for implanting dental implants

Patent number: 9504534

Abstract: The invention includes apparatuses and methods for implanting dental implants in a patient’s mouth that ensure that the implants are in the proper rotational position and depth. In one aspect, the invention includes a surgical guide with a guide tube having an indexing mechanism that mates with a corresponding indexing mechanism on a flange of an implant mount when the mount is used to screw an implant into a patient’s mouth. This mating signals that the dental implant is in the proper rotational position and depth.

Dental implant system

Patent number: 5571016

Abstract: A bone-embedded implant fixture is interfaced with an aluminum oxide abutment post through which a variety of different arrangements and types of prosthesis superstructures may be supported, including those having separate coping portions surface bonded to the abutment post. An access bore in the abutment post accommodates threaded insertion of a screw fastener carrying a deformable washer to hold the dental implant assembled and seal the gum tissue region into which the abutment post is fitted.

Nanophase dental prosthetics and method

Patent number: US6669476

Abstract: Dental prosthetics, including implants, crowns, and bridges, made from nanophase materials. The nanophase materials are generally manufactured by evaporating a metal or other solid substrate by heating it to a temperature at or above its boiling point in a vacuum to form a vapor. The vapor is then condensed back to a solid state through contact with cold gas. In the first method, the nanophase material is heated until it is in a fluid state, then it is poured into a mold and cooled to form all or part of a dental prosthetic. In a second method, the nanophase material is placed into the mold in a powdered form, then heated so that the grains form a solid mass. Nanophase crowns and bridges should generally be formed in one piece, but the upper surface of a nanophase prosthetic will usually be covered with porcelain or another non-nanophase material.
