Valley Stream Dentist
Have you been told that you will be unable to get dental implants, even though you would like to have them, to replace your missing teeth? Many patients are not eligible for dental implants because they do not have a jawbone that is thick enough, or healthy enough to hold the titanium dental implant root. However, at our Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, patients can undergo a bone grafting procedure which will very likely make them eligible to get dental implants. If you would like to meet with our Valley Stream dentist regarding getting dental implants, we hope to see you soon.
At our practice, we have several dentists who are available to help you with all of your dental implant needs. Just one of our dentists is Dr. Dale D. Goldschlag. Our Valley Stream dentist, Dr. Goldschlag, has been in practice for over 22 years. At our office we provide the very finest in dental implant and cosmetic dentistry care. If you need a bone grafting to make your jawbone stronger, we offer that service at our dental practice as well. When a patient has missing teeth, the jawbone will atrophy. This can often leave the jawbone to be of poor quality, and without the strength or sheer size needed to hold dental implants. When this occurs, patients are generally not candidates to get dental implants.
However, at our practice we are now able to grow bone where it is needed. This will allow our oral surgeon to place implants which are not only of the proper length, but are also of the proper width and which will be able to successfully hold your dental implants. Happily, we will be able to restore the functionality of your bite, as well as improve your aesthetic appearance. When the jawbone atrophies, a patient’s facial structure is affected as well. When the jawbone becomes fuller once again, the patient’s face will take on a more youthful appearance. Bone grafting can also repair implant sites that do not have sufficient bone structure due to tooth extractions, gum disease or facial injuries. This type of bone grafting may be major or minor bone grafting. For an appointment to meet with our Valley Stream dentist to see what can be done to help improve the health and thickness of your jawbone, and to make you an eligible candidate for dental implants, contact us today.
