Valley Stream Dental Office
Dental Office in Valley Stream
Teeth replacement with dental implants is the most beneficial way you can fill that empty space where you used to have teeth. Here at Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, we’re pleased to offer traditional implants, mini implants, implant crowns, and same day teeth, each designed to suit your needs as an individual. We’re the specialists when it comes to implementing implant technology.
Traditional implants require several months to complete and are done in three basic stages at our Valley Stream dental office. First, a titanium post is placed surgically into your jaw. Over several months, your jaw bone grows around it and fuses with it. A small healing collar (anchor) is then attached, which will be used to help keep the tooth portion of the implant stable. Then you will be measured for and fitted with a tooth-colored crown. It will be cemented to the post and held in with the assistance of the anchor. This has been how dental implants were done from the very beginning at our Valley Stream dental office.
Advancements in technology, however, have brought other possibilities. Mini implants are tinier posts than for standard implants. These posts require no cutting or stitching and can be used for those whose jaw bones are not considered a good match for holding the standard-sized post. Implant crowns require no waiting period between the placement of the post and the fitting of the crown. An abutment is screwed into the post, permitting the crown to be added right away with no negative effects. Same day teeth offer similar benefits. You can have a full implant, post and crown, done during just a single session.
To find out which of these outstanding possibilities is best for you, call us and schedule a consultation at our Valley Stream dental office. All of them will give you replacement teeth that look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth do.
