Dental implants are the best solution for missing teeth because they are the only solution that replaces the tooth both above and below the gum line. By replacing the root of the tooth, we can prevent and even reverse bone loss in the jaw. While this procedure typically requires multiple visits to our office, once it is completed, dental implants are a permanent solution to missing teeth. With proper care and maintenance, you will never need to replace them––they last a lifetime. This sets dental implants apart from other restorative dentistry options like bridges and traditional dentures.
We provide the following types of dental implants in our Wall Street office:
Single Tooth Dental Implants
With single tooth dental implants, we first place a titanium post in your jaw to replace the root of your missing tooth. Next, we attach an abutment, which serves as an anchor for a permanent or removable artificial tooth. With your single tooth dental implant in place, function is restored to your bite and appearance is restored to your smile. No one will know that your dental implant isn’t your natural tooth. Caring for your dental implant is as simple as brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist every six months for a routine exam and cleaning.

Implant Supported Bridges
When three or more adjacent teeth are missing, we can use an implant supported bridge as a restorative solution. More economical than replacing each individual missing tooth with its own implant, an implant supported bridge places two implants in the jaw and uses them to hold in place a porcelain bridge between them. A functional and aesthetic replacement for natural teeth, implant supported bridges are a popular solution with our patients.

Implant Supported Dentures
Traditional dentures make it difficult to eat many of your favorite foods. They’re a hassle to wear, involving messy adhesive pastes, frequent slippage, and even causing speech problems. Implant supported dentures are different; with dental implants serving as anchors, these dentures are held in place securely. You’ll have a stronger bite and a more confident smile with implant supported dentures.
We offer both full and partial implant supported dentures, depending on the number of teeth you need to replace. These dentures can be either fixed or removable. Unlike traditional dentures, removable implant supported dentures snap on and off without needing denture paste to keep them in place.

Full Arch with Only Four Implants
This innovative solution replaces all teeth in an upper or lower arch with the support of only four dental implants. By using dental implants as anchors, we can prevent further jaw bone loss and protect against facial collapse, which is common when a full arch of teeth is missing.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
How long do dental implants last?
Dental implants are intended to last a longtime. Once they are implanted into your jaw, the bone grows around them in a process called osseointegration, making them a permanent replacement for the roots of missing teeth. The restorations that are attached to dental implants may need periodic replacement, but these too usually last a decade or more.
How painful is a dental implant?
Many patients worry about the pain involved in getting dental implants, but we use local anesthesia to make sure your gums and jaw are completely numb before we begin any work. When the anesthesia begins to wear off after your surgery, you’re likely to experience some tenderness, discomfort, and swelling, but you will be given aftercare instructions to help minimize this.
What is a single tooth implant?
Single tooth dental implants replace one missing tooth. They’re made of three parts: the dental implant itself, which is a biocompatible titanium post or screw that is implanted directly into the jaw, an abutment that attaches to the dental implant, and a dental crown that is anchored in place by the abutment.
Do you get a temporary tooth with an implant?
Yes, when needed, we can provide you with one or more temporary restorations to fill in the gaps in your smile.
Which is better, dentures or dental implants?
Dental implants are a better choice for most patients. Unlike dentures, dental implants and non-removable and replace the tooth both above and below the gum line. the dental implants strengthen the jaw for a better bite and more stability. Dental implants prevent bone loss from occurring, which can eventually cause a prematurely aged appearance due to facial collapse.
Can you switch from dentures to implants?
Yes, many patients decide to trade in traditional dentures for dental implants. If you’ve been wearing dentures for a while, you may have suffered some degree of bone loss in the jaw.
Is an All-On-Four implant good?
Yes, All-On-Four dental implants are an excellent solution for patients who are missing an entire upper or lower arch of teeth. Compared to traditional dentures, these restorations feel more natural in the mouth—they’re anchored securely in place by four to six dental implants, so there’s no need for messy denture adhesives and you’ll never have to worry about your dentures slipping or causing irritation by rubbing against your gums.
Which is more expensive, a dental implant or a bridge?
Dental implants are slightly more expensive than bridges because the cost involves the implants themselves, the restoration attached to them, and the surgical procedure. Don’t let cost alone influence your decision, though—dental implants have the added benefits of preventing and even reversing bone loss in the jaw and unlike traditional bridges, they do not damage or place stress on the adjacent teeth, that are used as abutments.
