Tooth Loss in Astoria
If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you will be happy to know that we have two different methods of teeth replacement options at our dental care practice. If you are suffering from tooth loss in Astoria you will want to come visit us at Contemporary Dental Implant Centre for treatment with regular dental implants or mini implants.
At our implant practice our expert dentist is Dr. Dale D. Goldschlag. Dr. Goldschlag specializes in periodontics and implant dentistry. If your jawbone is healthy enough and thick enough to hold regular dental implants you will be able to receive traditional dental implants at our office. Dental implants are a very popular solution for tooth loss in Astoria because they look, feel, and function just like regular teeth. Our patients enjoy getting dental implants because they know they can have total confidence in the implants staying secure in their mouth. In fact, if dental implants are taking care of with daily brushing and flossing and have regular dental cleanings they should be able to last you a lifetime. Dental implants are made of two main portions. There is the lower titanium root which is surgically inserted at our practice into your jawbone. A titanium root is inserted for each tooth you will be receiving. Once the surgery is complete and your jawbone has fully healed you will have a porcelain crown permanently attached to the dental implant. At this point your dental implant is complete and you will be able to enjoy all of the benefits it has to offer.
Tooth loss in Astoria can also be fixed using mini implants. Mini implants are also offered at our office for patients whose jaws cannot successfully hold regular dental implants. Mini dental implants are smaller and require minimal surgical intervention in order to be properly inserted into the gums. They can also be inserted to just about any jaw. This is performed with little to no discomfort while you are comfortable using local anesthesia. Mini implants can also be used to hold bridges and dentures in place. Mini implants make bridges and dentures much more secure so patients do not need to worry about them slipping or moving when they are trying to eat or speak. Mini implants help save patients from the embarrassment they sometimes experience when they wear dentures. We also offer bone grafting to help patients jaws become healthy and thick enough to hold regular dental implants.
