Long Island Reconstructive Dentistry
More than half of today’s population is affected by the loss of one or more teeth. Because our lifestyles, social activities, and appearances are so much a part of our individual uniqueness, tooth loss may be a deeply personal issue.
However, with the latest advancements in dentistry, no one should feel self-conscious about their smile, their comfort, or their ability to eat certain foods. Today, because of dental implants, thousands of people are eating and enjoying foods that they have not tasted in years.
If you are missing a single tooth or many teeth, dental implants may be an option for you. Implants have the look, feel and function of natural teeth. They are the most attractive, the most natural and the most comfortable replacement for missing teeth.
Implants can replace teeth that have been missing since birth or teeth that have been lost to gum disease, infection, trauma or decay. They can be used to replace a single tooth or multiple teeth and they can dramatically increase the retention and stability of dentures.
Dental implants help distribute chewing forces throughout the jawbone so that they can help restore the chewing power lost with missing teeth. They also minimize the erosion of the jawbone that normally occurs when teeth are lost. Many patients who have received dental implants comment that there is a significant improvement in the quality of their lives. Patients feel more confident and comfortable chewing and smiling. Implants also eliminate many of the problems associated with bridges, removable partials and full dentures.
