Our Dental Implant Treatment Services
Our dentists use their experience and expertise to provide dental implant treatments you can trust to restore your smile for decades. We offer both crowns and bridges so that we can restore your smile whether you're missing a single tooth or have wide gaps in your smile. Our implant-supported restoration options include:
Implant-Supported Crowns: A single crown rests on a dental implant and replaces the section of the tooth above the gum line. Our crowns use lifelike ceramic materials that effectively mimic your natural teeth and seamlessly blend in with the rest of your smile. Implant-supported crowns are sturdy and functional, capable of replacing individual teeth whether you're missing a front tooth or a back molar.
Implant-Supported Bridge: This dental bridge replaces three or more successive missing teeth. It uses dental implants instead of neighboring teeth to support the two teeth on each end of the bridge. The parts that attach to the implants are known as retainer crowns, while the middle tooth is the pontic. Bridges are more affordable and convenient than having an implant-supported crown for each missing tooth.
Pretreatments for Dental Implants
Some patients may need additional treatments to prepare their smiles to support dental implants. If you have oral health issues that may compromise your dental implant treatment, we'll provide options to help. Our dental implant pretreatments can include:
Bone Grafts: A bone graft increases your jaw's density and volume to provide a sufficient anchor for our Brooklyn dental implants. If the jawbone is weak or brittle, the chewing force over time can cause a dental implant to fail. Supplementing the bone with new material strengthens the area and allows it to withstand daily use so that you can enjoy your implant for years to come.
Tooth Extraction: Although we try to preserve your teeth wherever possible, some situations necessitate extractions. Common reasons include severe decay, periodontal disease, and risk of infection. Our dentists can provide gentle extraction to remove teeth posing a health risk, then provide a dental implant to replace the tooth once the site has healed.
Our Dental Implant Treatment Process
Before we begin your Brooklyn dental implant treatment, our dentists will thoroughly examine your oral health to confirm your eligibility. In addition to determining your bone density, we'll inquire about your medical history. You'll also receive guidelines on preparing for your dental implants.
Once we've planned out your treatment, you'll visit our office for the placement procedure. The titanium post is inserted into the jaw at a precise angle to provide optimal results. Depending on the procedure, you'll wait up to six months for your bone tissue to fuse with the implant. We'll then attach the crown or bridge, completing your dental implant.
Long-Term Benefits of Dental Implants
The unique design of a dental implant enables it to mimic an entire tooth. It offers more stability than alternatives such as traditional dentures and fixed bridges. Here are some of the advantages you can expect from dental implants:
Maintaining your dental implants is no different from caring for your natural teeth. Your daily oral hygiene routine should include brushing at least twice, flossing once, and rinsing with mouthwash. We also recommend that you visit our practice twice a year for professional cleaning and examination.
Although dental implants in Brooklyn can seem daunting in up-front costs, they're more economical in the long term. An essential advantage is that they last decades while providing full functionality. They also comprise non-decaying materials such as titanium and porcelain.
Missing teeth and roots contribute to bone loss and dental misalignment. Dental implants are the only appliances that imitate natural tooth roots by stimulating the jawbone, thereby preventing bone resorption and preserving your youthful facial structure.
Alternative procedures, such as fixed dental bridges, utilize adjacent natural teeth for support. Although they're a suitable solution to gaps, they also require the dentist to alter healthy neighboring teeth to anchor them in place. Dental implants provide robust support without harming adjacent teeth. They also help evenly distribute the stress associated with chewing and other oral functions, significantly reducing overall wear and tear.
Dental implants in Brooklyn promote a higher quality of life because they look, function, and feel like natural teeth. They also boost your self-esteem by eliminating the anxiety and embarrassment associated with missing teeth and temporary restorations.
Sedation Options for Implant Restorations
At our practice, we're committed to helping you feel comfortable at every stage of your treatment. We offer two sedation options at our practice - Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral conscious sedation. Nitrous oxide administers precisely calculated oxygen and nitrous oxide through a comfortable mask over your nose. Oral sedation occurs through a pill that you take before your procedure begins. Both options help you feel more relaxed and comfortable during treatment without causing full sedation. Our dentists will explain the sedation options in greater detail so that you can make an informed choice about your treatment experience.
