About Dental Implants
A dental implant is a titanium post that is placed directly into your jawbone where it serves as an anchor for a porcelain crown, a dental bridge, or even a full set of dentures. The surgical grade titanium posts are an ideal solution for patients who have lost one or more teeth to periodontal disease, decay, injury, or other trauma. Our dentists work hand-in-hand with acclaimed, trusted, and experienced oral surgeons and periodontal specialists who focus on implantation and gum disease while providing you with exceptional restorations. Our administrative team will handle all of the scheduling for your out-of-office surgery to make treatment more convenient for you.
What to Expect
It is important that you make your oral health a priority because the condition of your teeth can affect the way you feel about yourself and how you present yourself to others. Our dental experts believe that we can tell a lot about a person by examining their smiles and listening to their stories, their struggles, and their needs. During a consultation at Greater Long Island Dental, our doctors will perform a comprehensive analysis of your teeth, gums, and jaw to determine the treatments needed to improve your health and restore function to your mouth. We can also give you an estimate of your dental implant timeline. In addition to the thorough exam, our team will discuss with you any concerns that you may have, your goals for treatment, and oral needs. We want you to feel comfortable in opening up to our professionals; after all, we pride ourselves on being open and honest with every patient who sits in our chair.
Our dentists work together as a cohesive unit to determine a plan of action to take in order to improve your health and the appearance of your smile. Once an ideal treatment plan has been determined, our team will present you with all of your treatment options. If it is determined that dental implants are best suited to your unique case, our dentists will begin designing your dental restoration. Using digital imaging, our team can give you a preview of what your smile will look like with implant-supported crowns, bridges, or dentures. Dental prosthetics are tailored to blend in seamlessly with your existing teeth.
Once your gums and jawbone have healed from surgery, we will complete your transformation by securing your customized, natural-looking dental restorations to your implants. In order to ensure that your restorations last for years, it is important that you maintain a good oral hygiene regimen and schedule regular dental check-ups.
Many patients suffering with compromised smiles are dental implants candidates. In general, the best candidates are non-smokers in good overall and oral health who wish to replace lost teeth. During an in-depth consultation, we can determine if implants are right for you.
