Dental Implants in East Islip

happy woman at beachPatients who are missing any number of teeth have a strong, beautiful alternative to bridges, partials, or full dentures. Dental implants mimic the tooth roots to create a more natural tooth replacement option that will improve your smile and your lifestyle. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth because they create a titanium anchor, mimicking tooth roots and attaching to the jawbone. Implants can anchor dental crowns, bridges, partials, or full dentures to eliminate slipping. Call the dentists and dental team at East Islip Dental Care to find out more or schedule a dental implant consultation. We’ll evaluate your smile and help you determine whether or not dental implants are the right tooth replacement solution for your unique smile.

Dental Implant Placement

Dental implant restorations require adequate bone structure and soft tissue volume for placement. The first stage of the implant supported tooth replacement procedure involves oral surgery in which a titanium post is implanted into the jawbone for each missing tooth or for the new teeth that will anchor a bridge or denture. Following the surgical implant placement nature will take its course, allowing your bone and soft tissue to fuse with the titanium post, mimicking the lost tooth roots. This creates a solid foundation for any number of replacement teeth.

Dental implant patients enjoy restored function, which delivers a variety of benefits, including:
