Valley Stream Best Dentist
At our dental practice, patients are either able to get traditional dental implants or mini dental implants to replace missing teeth. In order to get traditional dental implants, our patients jawbone must be thick enough and healthy enough to permanently hold the dental implant. If the patient’s jawbone is not thick enough, we are able to provide bone grafting to help improve the quality of the jawbone. However, many patients do not want to, or cannot, undergo this procedure. However, almost all patients qualify for mini implants which can be used to hold replacement teeth or full dentures. There are some important differences between traditional and mini implants. If you would like to know which type of treatment will work best for you, you can meet with our Valley Stream best dentist and learn what will work best in your particular case.
At our dental implant practice, Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, we are very happy to have six expert cosmetic dentists on staff. Our expert and highly trained implant dentists are: Dr. Dale D Goldschlag; Dr. Barry Hertzl Habib; Dr. Jean Paul Aranda; Dr. Mine Turhan; Dr. Peter Muntean; and Dr. Sidney Hiller. A dental implant is actually an artificial tooth root replacement. This dental implant root is made of titanium and can be used by our dentists in several different ways to help restore your smile. The difference between a traditional dental implant and a newer, mini implant, is the size of the implant. A mini implant has a diameter that is smaller than a traditional dental implant. Our Valley Stream best dentist will be able to actually show you the difference in size of the two dental implants.
Traditional dental implants are generally able to withstand more force because they are wider, and therefore, stronger. They are able to be used as stable anchors for teeth since they have actually fused to the jawbone. Regular dental implants can be used to attach a crown to the implant so that one single tooth can be replaced using one dental implant. When a conventional denture is attached to the implant, a different type of tooth attachment is used to connect the denture and the traditional implant. Mini implants are generally used to Keith dentures or bridges in place. Our Valley Stream best dentist will be able to let you know exactly how dental implants can be used to correct your missing tooth situation. At our implant center, we certainly do not believe in a one-size–fits–all solution when it comes to our patients and dental implants.
