When you compare dental implants to the longer established restorations such as bridges and dentures, you see immediate advantages. Although bridges are a fine choice, they require that the tooth on either side of the bridge be drilled down and then fitted with a crown so that the bridge can be securely fastened to them. Implants are fused directly to your jaw bone, so there is no need to affect your surrounding teeth. In addition, an implant is more stabile and secure because it is fused to your jaw bone. It needs no messy adhesive like dentures and therefore makes chewing and talking a snap. A dental implant placed by our Jericho implant dentist looks and feels like a real tooth because you have the full confidence that it won’t move around on you.

It is fair to say that dental implants are more expensive than other dental restorations, though. Depending on your budget and what your insurance covers, you may determine that implants are not a financially viable option for you. There are also some requirements that are necessary for you to be considered a good candidate for dental implants. Your gums need to be generally healthy and your jaw bone should be strong enough to hold the implant. If not, bone grafting can still allow you to benefit from dental implants. However, this will mean an additional cost as well as a longer waiting time before you can get your dental implants. If you are in a hurry to get a restoration, you may want to keep this in mind. Personal habits such as smoking and diseases like diabetes can also interfere with the possibility of a successful dental implant. Our Jericho implant dentist will talk with you about your risk factors. Why not schedule a consultation today and find out if dental implants are for you?

Brookville Implant Dentist

Dental Implants 11753

Our Brookville implant dentist, Warren Baine, DMD, has many patients that are seeking dental implants in their upper jaw, but we often find that they need to have the oral surgery procedure called a sinus lift. During this procedure, Dr. Baine will add bone in the area where dental implants will be placed. To make room for this bone graft, Dr. Baine will have to actually move your sinus membrane. The sinus lift procedure is frequently suggested for our patients who have lost bone mass or density in their upper jaw, due to gum disease or when their sinuses are too close to area intended for dental implants. Our Brookville implant dentist can perform this sinus augmentation, which allows many of our patients to have dental implants successfully rather than having to wear partial dentures.

Our patients who have lost one or more teeth may experience bone loss at the site of their missing tooth or teeth. As a result, your gums and jawbone, in the area of the lost tooth, may have an unnatural indentation. When our patient has a dental implant placed in the site of the lost tooth, the indentation caused by the bone loss can cause the dental implant to appear too long when compared to neighboring teeth. Ridge augmentation surgery allows our Brookville implant dentist to place a bone graft in the indentation to fill in the missing bone. As a result of the ridge augmentation, you can recover the natural contour of your gums and jaw.

There are several reasons why bone grafting would need to be performed and our Brookville implant dentist is an expert in his field, and thoroughly explains the process and necessity to all our patients. Periodontal disease, mouth trauma, or badly fitting removable dentures can cause damage and bone grafting is done to reverse any bone loss. It is also used to extend the bone to allow proper implant placement. In some cases, our Brookville implant dentist, Dr. Baine will need to increase the bone in the sinus area for dental implant placement, or extend bone to improve the fit and comfort of a removable prosthesis. When a patient loses a tooth, as in an extraction, the surrounding bone collapses and bone grafting is used to preserve this bone for future implant placement or, simply, just to look better.
