Dental Implants New York City

What Are Dental Implants?

Man happily eating an appleDental implants are small titanium fixtures which are surgically placed in the upper or lower jawbone. They replace the root of your missing tooth and provide an anchor for your dental prosthesis (single crowns, bridges, and partial or full dentures). A natural appearance is achieved, and normal chewing and speech are maintained. Dr. Siegelman and his team are proud to offer tooth implants to patients in New York City, Long Island, Westchester County, and the surrounding areas. Dr. Siegelman is a board-certified dental anesthesiologist and specializes in replacing missing teeth with implants for patients suffering from dental anxiety and patients seeking sleep dentistry.

Advanced implant treatment

At our office in NYC, we are able to integrate a 3D scan of your mouth along with a digital image of your teeth to design a guide for the most precise placement of your dental implants. By using computer-guided surgery, we are able to perform our surgeries quicker and with more ease and accuracy. This allows for less postoperative discomfort and better healing, all while giving you the best possible result.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Dental Implants?

But even when bone is missing due to resorption, trauma, or disease, a bone graft can often be made prior to starting the implant procedure. However, that being said, a bone graft will add several months to the process.

How successful is dental implant treatment?

Certain conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes, bleeding disorders, a weakened immune system, or cognitive problems that interfere with postoperative care increase the risk of implant failure. The success rate for this procedure is greater than 90% over 10 years. Complications are rare, but both patient and dentist must take care to avoid infection and inflammation, just as with natural teeth. Dental implants, like teeth, can alo fracture. People who grind their teeth should consider using a mouth guard at night.

What to expect during the procedure

Dr. Siegelman will perform a complete examination involving X-rays to determine if you are a suitable candidate for implants. Each patient’s needs are handled individually. A gentle surgical procedure is performed to place the dental implants. After the gums have healed and the implants have integrated with the bone, Dr. Siegelman will attach the crown or bridgework to the top of your new implants. The entire procedure is relatively painless.

What Issues Can Dental Implants Fix?

Implants provide extra support for your existing partial or full denture, alleviating uncomfortable movement. In many cases, dental implants may be placed to support a fixed bridge eliminating the need for a removable partial or full denture. Also, implants minimize gum irritation and pain often associated with removable partials or conventional full dentures.
