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 periodontists and oral surgeon are extremely well trained and very experienced with dental implants. No other dental center in the Long Island area can surpass our expert technique.
You can learn more about the dental implant process and your options on the following pages:

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 implant supported dentures, dental implants eliminate the fear of slippage and discomfort from food particles getting trapped 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 the implants is exactly the same as with natural teeth and includes regular brushing, flossing, and dental check-ups.
For improved comfort throughout the surgical process, sedation dentistry is available for patients, should they be interested.
To ensure the dental implant procedure is successful, we require patients to exhibit the following characteristics:
- Healthy gum tissue
- Adequate bone density in the jaw
- Fully developed jaw structure
- No medical condition that can complicate the surgery or healing period
- Not currently undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment
During the consultation process, your dentist will determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants. Should you prove to not be eligible, alternative dental solutions will be recommended to help you achieve your goals.
