Cosmetic Dentist in Massapequa Park
Have you been hearing a lot about dental implants, or do you have a friend who recently got dental implants? If so, you probably already know about many of the benefits they have to offer. In short, dental implants are so popular nowadays because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. The dental implant procedure is one which is pain-free for the patient. If you would like to see our cosmetic dentist in Massapequa Park to see if you are good candidate for dental implants, contact us today at Contemporary Dental Implant Centre.
When you come to us regarding dental implants our cosmetic dentist in Massapequa Park will first need to examine your jawbone to make sure it is healthy enough for the procedure. A healthy jawbone must also be thick enough to be able to securely hold dental implant root. If this is determined to be the case, our implant dentist will then be able to proceed with the dental implants procedure. The first thing that will happen is that a titanium anchor root will be surgically inserted into your jawbone for each dental implant “tooth” that you are to receive. These anchors act as root substitutes. Our dentist will then attach a small posts to each implant which will peak through the gums. These posts will eventually serve as anchors for the porcelain crowns.
Once the dental implants are surgically inserted into your jawbone there will be a healing time of approximately 4 to 6 months. During this time the jawbone will fully heal and the dental implants will totally fuse to the jawbone. For this interim time you can have temporary dentures and eat a soft diet. Once the healing period is completed our oral surgeon will uncover the implants and attach a small healing collar. The new permanent crowns will be made and finally they will be permanently attached to the implants. At this point your dental implants are complete. You should not experience any disruption to your life during this entire process. Our cosmetic dentist in Massapequa Park has provided dental implants for a great number of patients. Should you decide to get dental implants you will want to have the procedure done by a dentist such as ours who specializes in the field of dental implantology. If you would like to come to our practice for a consultation to see if this will be a good way for you to have your missing teeth replaced, contact us today for an appointment.
