Dental Implants: The Restorative Solution for Missing Teeth
Dental365 can provide all the necessary procedures for dental implants treatment at one of our fully equipped offices in Long Island or New York, NY, helping patients restore form and function to their smiles with a lasting solution that prevents bone loss in the jaw. Tooth replacements are the superior restorative solution for missing teeth, providing a stable and permanent foundation for dentures, bridges, and crowns. Dental implants not only enhance the appearance of your smile, but they also restore your functionality and improve your oral health as well.
What is a dental implant (tooth implant)?
Dental implants are used to replace a missing tooth in its entirety. Implants are titanium posts that resemble screws. These posts are surgically embedded into the jaw and fuse with your bone, restoring your jawbone health and providing a permanent and stable foundation for your restorations. A single implant can replace a single tooth and support a crown, or up to six or eight implants can replace an entire arch of missing teeth. An implant is not needed for each missing tooth to provide the unparalleled benefits of bone loss prevention.
Why are dental implants used?
You may be a candidate for dental implants if you:
- Are missing one or more teeth
- Currently wear a traditional, removable denture or bridge and would like a more permanent restoration
- Have ample jawbone tissue to support the implants
- Are free of gum disease, cavities, and any other oral health conditions
- Do not smoke
What does getting dental implants involve?
Prior to scheduling surgery, you will meet with one of our experienced doctors for an evaluation of your oral health. We will discuss your treatment goals and expectations, and determine if you are a candidate for surgery or if you will require any preparatory procedures such as a bone graft. Once any preparatory procedures are complete and you have fully recovered, we can proceed with dental implant surgery.
Your implants will be surgically placed at one of our offices. We will create incisions in your jawbone and then insert the implants. We may include an additive, which will stimulate healing and bone growth. Over the next three to six months, osseointegration will take place. During this process, your implants fuse to your jawbone, creating a stable foundation for your final restoration. Once you have completely healed and your implants are fully integrated, we can create and place your final restoration.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
A dental implant is a replacement for a missing tooth. It serves as a new and permanent root, a titanium screw inserted into the jaw that seats a dental prosthesis. An abutment is placed then a crown is attached. Your implant will feel and look the same as your other natural teeth.
Dentures are a removable set of teeth that require care and attention. Dental implants won’t require any special treatment. Unlike dentures which are removable, implants are permanent and precisely fixed into the jaw bone. Many people with dentures suffer because their body can’t get used to this strange new addition, but there are no such problems with dental implants. They feel like the natural teeth.
With dental implants, nobody, not even you after a while, will notice the difference between an implant and a natural tooth. Dental implants allow you to drink, eat and smile without inhibition or fear of someone noticing there’s something wrong with your mouth. Also, the procedure itself is affordable and the results always meet the expectations.
Contact us for a consultation. After a thorough examination, we can determine if a dental implant is the right choice for you.
An approximate price cannot be given prior to a consultation. This is because the cost will always vary depending on your exact personal oral needs, your insurance and several other factors. If you’re interested in getting dental implants, please contact us so that we may analyze your needs, provide you with a treatment plan and then can discuss your budget and benefits.
Not at all. During the procedure, a local anesthetic will be used. If you’re not comfortable with local anesthetics, you can always talk with your dentist about available sedation options.
Dental implants are usually lifelong. To ensure the quality of your implanted teeth for life, be sure to maintain your oral health by practicing oral hygiene and committing to regular dental check-ups.
