Dental Implants in Great Neck, NY
Fully restoring the comfort and beauty of your natural smile is our goal, so we specialize in a variety of implant techniques to provide Great Neck and Manhasset patients with a wide range of tooth replacement options that include:
- Single Tooth Replacement
- Anterior Replacement
- Posterior Replacement
- Full Upper Replacement
Dental implants are very effective when replacing a missing tooth, especially if the space has no surrounding teeth. A dental implant will not only give you the functionality of a natural tooth but will also provide you with a natural-looking solution for your missing tooth.
There are three main types of implants:
1. The root implant
- Matches the size and shape of a patient’s natural tooth
- Is as strong as the patient’s original tooth
- Is placed into the jawbone to integrate with bone
- After healing, the implant is fitted with the new tooth
- Total process takes 3-8 months
2. The plate form implant
- Is ideal when the jawbone is not wide enough to properly support a root implant
- Is a long and thin implant that is anchored into thin jawbones
- Has a similar insertion to the root implant
3. The subperiosteal implant
- Used when the jawbone has receded to the point where it can no longer support a permanent implant
Post Implant Care
Proper oral hygiene is necessary for everyone to maintain their dental health, but for patients that have received dental implants, it is especially important. Leaving areas of the teeth and gums unclean can lead to bacteria, swollen gums and jawbone recession. As your jawbone recedes, dental implants will become weak and will eventually need to be removed. To maintain healthy teeth and healthy dental implants, we advise all of our patients to visit us every six months for a regular checkup and cleaning. With the proper care, dental implants can last for decades!
