iStock_000028928360_LargeDental implants are one of the best ways to create a beautiful, long lasting smile.  This restorative dental service improves your smile appearance, blends in naturally, and restores your oral health.  If you are interested in restoring your smile with dental implants, you may want to learn more about what the implant placement process entails.  Here’s what you can expect from your dental implant procedure at Perfect Smile Maker.

Dental Implant Procedure:
  • Schedule Your Consultation – The first step in your dental implant process is scheduling a consultation at our office.  During your initial visit, Stewart Brody, DDS will evaluate, assess and discuss what will be involved in your treatment. 
  • Dental Implant Placement – Your second visit involves placing the base of the implant.  While using local anesthesia, the implant is attached to your jaw bone through a surgical procedure.  This ensures the stability and longevity of your new tooth.
  • Healing Period – It can take three to six months for the implant to fully heal.  During this time, the jaw bone heals around the implant, securing it in place.
  • Placing Your Custom Cap – After the implant is fully integrated, the implant is uncovered.  A custom crown is attached to your implant and it blends in naturally with the rest of your smile.
Dental Implants are a great tooth replacement choice for one or several missing or damaged teeth.  To learn more about the benefits of dental implants and what the procedure entails, visit our website or contact our office by calling 516-782-2215.  At Perfect Smile Maker, we can help you determine if dental implants are the right solution for your smile.

There are many ways to restore the health and beauty of your smile.  While dental implants are generally the best available treatment for those with missing teeth, they can also be used to treat a number of other oral health conditions.  So how do you know if dental implants are the right restorative solution for your dental needs?

Here are a few common problems that implants can treat:

  • Missing Teeth
  • Locally Diseased Gums
  • Damaged Teeth
  • Root Canal Failure
  • Traumatic Facial Injuries
  • Congenital Dental Defects

Dental implants are a great alternative to traditional treatments for missing teeth.  Unlike crowns and bridges, they are a permanent fixture in your smile.  Dental implants are designed to look and feel just like a natural part of your smile.
