Implants in Astoria
Replacing a tooth or even several or all of the teeth on a jaw can now be done without the drawbacks that bridges or dentures are associated with. Here at Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, we’re pleased to offer you the benefits of our standard implants in Astoria, as well as mini implants, implant crowns, and same day teeth.
Standard implants are done in three basic stages. It begins with the surgical placement into your jaw of the titanium post that replaces your natural tooth root. For the next few months, your jaw bone will grow around the post. When it fuses with the post, stage one is complete. A small healing collar is then added to the post, which will also serve to hold the tooth portion of the implant. You will then be measured for a tooth-colored crown that will be fashioned to fit on the top of the post, and cemented to it. Because it includes a root and a tooth, our implants in Astoria are superior to bridges and dentures, which only replace the tooth. Your other teeth remain unaffected, and you won’t need to use messy, unreliable adhesive.
Our other options include mini implants, which are really mini posts. The teeth are normal-sized. The advantage of this version of our implants in Astoria is that they require less cutting compared to standard implants. Perhaps the most exciting possibility of all is the idea of getting implants done all in one day. We can do this with either same day teeth or implant crowns. Our dentist will discuss the pros and cons of each of these, with respect to your unique needs and preferences. Not everyone is a good candidate for them, but even standard implants represent the state-of-the-art in full-tooth restorations.
