Whether teeth are missing or extracted, one or multiple, it is now a viable option to replace them with dental implant restoration. Looking remarkably like your own natural tooth, an implant is a new tooth made of metal and porcelain. One part is the titanium implant body that replaces your missing root, and the second part is the tooth-colored crown that is cemented on top of your implant. Our Commack implant dentist, Steven R. Feigelson, DDS, handles your implants with great skill, placing them inside your jawbone with meticulous accuracy. Dr. Feigelson also uses implants to secure dentures that tend to shift when you talk or chew. For our patients with removable partial dentures, implants can replace missing teeth so that you have a more natural looking smile.
Dental implants have truly transformed dentistry and our Commack implant dentist offers you the permanent solution to replace missing teeth with implanted teeth that look and feel like your own. Once you undergo the dental implant restoration multi-step process, you will find that you have a better feel, an improved look, and a more stable solution to your tooth loss. Dr. Feigelson takes the time to educate you on the entire process, helping you to realize that dental implants are much more than a cosmetic procedure. Replacing a lost tooth is a necessary procedure in order to maintain the overall health and function of your surrounding teeth. Dental implant restoration also helps prevent tooth movement, and loss of jawbone in that particular area.
Dental implant surgery is done under local anesthesia and, without any complications, one implant will take a little over an hour. Done in our office, most patients say the procedure is less painful than having a tooth pulled. You may experience some mild soreness or swelling after the procedure, but that is easily treated with over the counter medicines, and you will more than likely be able to return to work the next day. Being the only fixed alternative for a secure resolution to replace lost teeth, dental implants are quite durable and should last between 15 and 25 years. Whether it’s to replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth, secure a bridge, fix a bite problem, or guarantee a confident smile, you have choices with our Commack implant dentist, and you can trust in the knowledge and training that will have you resting easy, and looking great.
