At Great Neck & Mid-Island Dental Associates, there is new hope for those missing some or all of their teeth. Whether you have lost teeth due to decay or as the result of an accident, dental implants are a wonderful innovation that can help you secure your smile into the future. Dental implants are also used to permanently relieve the inconveniences associated with dentures.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are carefully crafted replacement teeth that are permanently attached to abutment posts and anchored into the jawbone using a biocompatible metal. The result is natural looking and feeling teeth. Our team of top cosmetic dentists are extremely well trained and very experienced with dental implants. No other dental center in the Long Island area can surpass our expert technique.
The future of implant dentistry is here
Imtec mini dental implants—also known as MDI implants—are miniature titanium alloy implants that act like the root of a tooth. When the implants are placed, the denture gently rests on the patient’s gum tissue. This minimally invasive procedure is becoming the system to use for stabilizing a patient’s upper or lower dentures. In most cases, the gum does not even have to be opened! In just one hour and one stage, these implants can be immediately loaded and utilized. This mini dental implant system allows for the immediate and long-term stabilization of a patient’s denture. It virtually eliminates problems associated with trapped food particles, “denture breath” and other common social issues. Of all mini dental implant systems currently on the market, MDI is the only system approved by the FDA for long-term use. We are pleased to offer this dental implant option at our Great Neck and Hicksville offices.
The benefits of dental implants
As stated above, those who receive dental implants at our New York offices appreciate the natural look and feel they provide. Dental implants are also sturdier and more secure than removable partials or dentures. For those with dentures, dental implants eliminate the fear of slippage and discomfort from food particles under the denture. With dental implants, most patients report a freedom previously not thought possible as they can essentially eat anything they want. Care for dental implants is exactly the same as with natural teeth and includes regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups.
