Implant Dentist Valley Stream
Valley Stream Implant Dentist
Implants give you outstanding tooth replacements, whether you have just one, a few, or even all of your teeth on the upper or lower jaw to restore. At Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, we understand that each of our patients is unique and that your needs will reflect that. This is why our implant dentist in Valley Stream is pleased to offer several options for teeth replacement.
Typical dental implants consist of three components, which are the titanium post (or root), the abutment that is used to support the tooth, and the crown (or replacement tooth). The construction of it leads to a stable and reliable new tooth that you can rely on for many years to come. In fact, with proper care, any of our implant options can last for a lifetime. The process with typical dental implants is to surgically place the post, after which there is a waiting period of a few months. This is so that your jaw bone can grow around the post and then fuse with it. At that point, it’s as sturdy as any natural root for your other teeth is. The abutment (also called a healing collar) is then added.
The crown, made to precision from impressions, is cemented to the post and rests against the abutment. Our implant dentist in Valley Stream can also offer mini implants if you have more than one consecutive tooth that is missing. The mini version has smaller posts that can be placed without the need for surgery, making it nearly as easy to get the far advanced mini implants as it would be to get a far less beneficial fixed or removable bridge. And you can even get same day teeth, the entire procedure from the post to the abutment to the tooth, done in the course of a single session, provided that you are a good candidate for it.
