Dental Implants in Bayside, NY
Dental implants are the most effective way to replace severely damaged and lost teeth.
If you are currently dealing with missing teeth and must make a decision on how to replace them, you should consider dental implants. They are the most effective and natural solution available today. More and more people in the United States are choosing dental implants and implant supported restorations over bridges and removable dentures.
Corbin Dental offers full services for dental implants in Bayside, NY!
The phrase ‘dental implants’ loosely refers to the entire tooth replacement unit. Thus the implant itself is just one component. There are actually three parts that connect together to replace missing teeth, as shown in the image above. A dental implant is a post-like structure that has threads like a screw. Our restorative dentist will surgically place it into the jaw bone during a maxillofacial surgery procedure.
We use a single dental implant to replace one tooth, and many implants to replace multiple teeth. Connected to the dental implant post is a small piece called an abutment. We use this part as the connector piece from the dental implant to the dental prosthesis (crown). The type of implant restorations we use will depend on how many teeth the patient is missing.
The Best Solution to Replace Missing Teeth
What sets our dental implant services apart from other options is the expert care you receive. Our in-house implant dentistry can offer you experienced care, from replacing a few missing teeth to a full mouth reconstruction.
Many patients choose our dental implants because they release them from the hassle and embarrassment of wearing dentures. Our dental implant specialist provides a unique dental care experience. One that does not require visiting separate dentist offices for each part of the treatment process.
Did you know that this tooth restoration preserves the natural bone, which stimulates bone growth? They essentially perform the same job as the missing tooth’s root. This lack of stimulation that you see with other options is what leads to bone loss in the jaw, a saggy face, and other issues. That bone loss is what ages a person’s appearance significantly, creating that sunken-in look on their face.
Dental implants also allow the patient to chew food with greater force, allowing the patient to eat a variety of foods without restrictions. Our dentists surgically install dental implants in the jaw bone, thus creating a very durable and permanent bond to support the restoration.
But why should I choose dental implants treatment over full dentures?
Dentures are known to be hard to wear and difficult to maintain. They can also create an embarrassing situation when they slip around in the mouth which leads to slurred speech and fear of them falling out.
What to Expect: The Dental Implants Procedure
The dental implant procedure in Bayside, NY will consist of a customized planning phase, at least one surgical procedure, months of healing time, and then the actual creating and attachment of the dental prosthesis. It is hard to estimate the length of time the entire process will take without a full evaluation and a review of your oral health history.
Each patient will need a thorough evaluation in order for their dentist to create a treatment plan. Our Bayside, NY dentist office uses 3-D scanning and CT scans to get a better picture of the patient’s oral structure. It will allow us to see the available jaw bone so that the implant placement is done accurately.
Next is the surgical placement of the dental implants into the jaw bone. After the surgery, there is a three to six-month healing period. During this time, the implants and the bone surrounding them will fuse together creating that durable bond. We will monitor the patient during the healing period. Our dentist may also place a temporary restoration for aesthetic reasons depending on the location of the missing teeth.
We are almost done once the implants fuse with the jaw bone. The next step is to place the abutments and the final dental prosthesis. Depending on the number of teeth missing and their location, the restoration will be a dental crown, a dental bridge, a partial denture, or a full denture.
