Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the only tooth replacement option that mimics the look, feel and function of your natural teeth. Implants can restore 99% of function, allowing you to eat, smile and speak with confidence.
How Successful Is The Dental Implant Surgery?
Dental implants placed by our experienced doctors have an over 95% success rate. By properly taking care of your implants, you can expect them to last you the rest of your life.
What Is the Cost Of Dental Implant Surgery?
The cost of dental implants varies from patient to patient depending on their unique needs. During your complimentary consultation, we will take into consideration the number of teeth that need to be replaced, how much bone is available or if we will need to perform a bone graft or sinus lift prior to surgery, any tooth extractions, treatment for gum disease or the severity of your case.
How Many Teeth Can I Replace with Dental Implants?
Whether you have one missing tooth or an entire arch, we have dental implant solutions to accommodate you. For full-arch tooth loss we can place as little as two implants that support an implant supported denture or provide you with a fixed bridge with All-on-4®.
Am I A Candidate for Dental Implants?
If you have one, many or a full arch of missing teeth you are likely a candidate for dental implants. You should be in good overall health, have adequate bone volume and be free of any gum disease or infection. Our doctors have the knowledge and experience to treat those who may require any additional treatments.
What If I Don’t Have Enough Jaw Bone for Dental Implants?
If you don’t have enough bone to support dental implants, you may still be a candidate after bone grafting or sinus lift treatment. We can rebuild bone in your jaw so you can get the implant procedures you need to restore your mouth.
Does Implant Surgery Hurt?
This is a common misconception patients have. Dental implant placement is generally not painful thanks to the use of dental sedation. In fact, many of our patients say they hardly felt anything at all! Many of our doctors are certified to administer IV sedation if it’s needed.
Can I Have A Tooth Removed and Dental Implant Placed During One Appointment?
In many cases we can remove a tooth, or multiple teeth, and place a dental implant during the same appointment. Ask us about our All on 4 dental implants!
Where Will My Surgery Take Place?
Our Melville office is designed to accommodate patients receiving dental implants. We are equipped to administer sedation in our office and feature many modern dental technologies.
How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
When placed by our experienced dentists and cared for properly at home, dental implants can last your life-time. The crown or restoration piece may need to be replaced due to normal usage, but the titanium implants and supporting bar should last you for many years.
How I Do Care for My Dental Implants?
Your dental implants should be cared for just like your natural teeth. We recommend brushing twice a day and flossing daily, and maintaining regular dental hygiene cleanings with us at National Dental.
