Thanks to strides in dental technology, implants can now help to replace missing teeth and reverse tooth loss. When teeth are missing, they can cause bone loss because of the jawbone re-absorbing itself, causing the jaw to sink in.
It’s important for our implant dentist in Sheepshead Bay to first check if you are a candidate for implants. Some people may lack the proper amount of bone or gum for the implant. During your consultation for dental implants we’ll first do an exam to see whether or not you are a candidate. Once cleared we’ll make the appointment to begin the implants. For those who are not candidates due to sufficient bone and gum, a bone graft may be recommended. A bone graft takes bone from either the patient or a donor and fuses it to the patient’s jawbone. This process is a biocompatible process, in which the bone fuses to the new graft. After the graft, the new bone that is formed provides sufficient bone to place the implant. A healing period is given for the graft to heal first before placing the implant and subsequent crown over it.
The implants are placed directly into the jawbone once you are cleared to have them done by our implant dentist in Sheepshead Bay. Implants make life easier for people, giving them the ability to chew, eat and smile more easily. Implants are affordable and painless once they are placed in the mouth. We offer all of our dental services and implants at competitive prices and work with anyone on a budget. We’ll make sure we find a plan for you that works and one that fits your own individual needs and budget.
