Here at the office of Dr. Warren Baine, one of the most important services that our Jericho Long Island oral surgeon provides for patients is the dental implant restoration. Dental implants are some of the most effective and successful toot replacement options available today, and so many patients choose their as their treatment method of choice. Dental implant restorations are made up of two parts. The first part is the implant itself, which is a small metal post that our Jericho Long Island oral surgeon puts in place directly in the jaw bone, where the missing or extracted tooth once was. Over a designated healing period, a process called osteointegration occurs, encouraging the bone and the metal implant to come together and form a sturdy foundation to which the new replacement tooth can later be attached. In order for a dental implant restoration to be successful, you must meet a few main criteria. Firstly, it is important that your teeth and gums be in otherwise good health in order to heal from the surgery properly. If you have any kind of periodontal disease or other similar issues, we will clear those up before continuing with the dental implant process. It is also important that you have sufficient underlying bone mass to support a dental implant. Missing teeth can lead to degeneration of the bone, so that can be a common problem for patients seeking dental implant restorations. Fortunately, our Jericho Long Island oral surgeon has services available to get you ready for dental implant surgery, such as sinus and ridge augmentation, which can be used to create a more habitable environment for dental implant restorations to take place.
