What Is Dental Implant Therapy?

Dental implant therapy is the process of replacing one or more teeth with dental implants. Extensive decay or severe periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss and dental implant is a viable solution for optimal esthetics and function.

A dental implant is an artificial tooth and root system. A titanium post shaped like a screw is surgically implanted in the jaw where it fuses with the bone to form a solid bond that can support a dental crown. Multiple dental implants can be placed in the jaw to support a bridge or dentures.

Benefits of Dental Implant Therapy

  • Natural function. Dental implants allow you to bite and chew food as well as you could with natural, healthy teeth.
  • Natural appearance. The way dental implants are anchored in the jaw is so similar to your natural teeth that they blend right in.
  • Prevent bone loss. Dental implants bond with the jaw bone to prevent loss of bone density that would otherwise occur in the absence of a tooth root.
  • Improve oral health. Replacing damaged or missing teeth with dental implants improves your oral health, reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
  • Keep teeth in proper alignment. Missing or extracted teeth should be replaced with dental implants to prevent the other teeth from shifting out of place.

Why Choose Dental Implants and Periodontology of Massapequa?

There are many reasons to choose Dental Implants and Periodontology of Massapequa. We specialize in periodontics and the placement of dental implants. Periodontics is the field of dentistry that is focused on the support structures for the teeth, which includes the gums and jaw bone. This makes us uniquely qualified to place dental implants with the highest rate of success. We use guided implant placement to ensure precision and accuracy of the depth and angle of your dental implants. Digital scanners help us create life-like prosthetics that fit properly.

Are You a Good Candidate for Implants?

If you have one or more teeth that are missing or damaged beyond saving, you may be a good candidate for dental implants. The first step is an evaluation to determine if there is sufficient bone structure and space in your jaw to place dental implants. If not, some preparation may be needed, such as bone grafting to stimulate regeneration of lost bone tissue.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implant Therapy

How long do dental implants last?
Once a dental implant has successfully fused with jaw bone, the bond can last for the rest of your life. Dental implants have a life expectancy of 30+ years.
Are there any eating restrictions with dental implants?
You will need to eat a soft diet while you are healing from implant placement, but once you are fully recovered you can eat normally without any restrictions.
How long does it take to get dental implants?
The entire process of getting dental implants can take a few months to a year or more. It depends on a variety of factors such as the number of implants being placed, the type of prosthetic you are receiving, and whether or not you need any preparatory procedures.
Does dental implant placement hurt?
Dental implants can be placed with local anesthesia, which numbs the nerves in the location of the implant placement. Additional sedation is available upon request to help you feel more relaxed.
How long does dental implant surgery take?
The procedure to place your dental implants can take anywhere from one to a few hours depending on the complexity of the case.
Is a dental implant better than a bridge?
To replace one or two teeth, dental implants offer a higher quality restoration than a bridge. A bridge is supported by the healthy teeth on each side of the gap, which permanently alters them and can eventually cause damage. But a dental implant exists independent of the other teeth. Implants also prevent bone loss in the jaw, but a bridge does not.
Can you replace all of your teeth with dental implants?
Dental implants can replace anywhere from a single tooth to all of the teeth in your mouth. When all of the teeth need to be replaced, 4-6 dental implants can be placed in the jaw to support a full arch denture. This can be done on both the upper and lower jaw for a complete restoration.
Does insurance cover dental implants?
Some insurance plans include coverage for dental implants and some don’t. You can contact your insurance provider or refer to your benefits guide for information about what dental procedures are covered. You may need to upgrade to a more comprehensive plan to get coverage for implants.
