Share Your Smile Again with Our Dental Implants in Valley Stream
Our dental implants in Valley Stream are an excellent way to improve the appearance and functionality of a patient’s smile. Implants can replace missing teeth or even teeth that have been extracted due to decay or dental disease. The procedure is relatively simple, though it does require several visits.
The roots of the implants are made of titanium because it’s biocompatibility. Over time, the titanium roots will fuse to the jawbone and secure the position of the implant. This is one of the main benefits of dental implants because they act just like natural teeth and will likely never need to be replaced. Our dental implants can be used to replace one or more teeth, and they can also be incorporated into a dental bridge.
Advantages of Dental Implants
● Extremely natural-looking
● Stable and comfortable compared to other traditional methods of restorative dentistry
● They can last a lifetime if taken care of properly
Types of Dental Implants
Endosteal implants are the most common type of dental implants utilized in Valley Stream. This type of implant is placed directly in the jawbone. The titanium is shaped like a screw and fuses to the jaw over time.
Subperiosteal implants are inserted into the gums but on or above the jawbone. This is a typical implant for patients who may not have enough healthy jawbone to support an endosteal implant. If you don’t have enough jawbone to support your dental implants, there are procedures available to help. Don't hesitate to ask Dr. Grossmann for more information.
Bone augmentation is a procedure that can help regenerate your jawbone so that you can support a dental implant in the future. The process is simple and can be completed in just one visit. Dr. Grossmann will create a slight incision in your gum and insert a bone grafting material that will encourage bone regeneration. After some time, the new and healthy bone will grow and absorb the bone grafting material. Dr. Grossmann will stitch the area closed and, once it is healed, you'll be able to move forward with your dental implant treatment.
