If you have one or more missing teeth, you should consider our dental implants in Commack. At the office of Commack Dental Associates, we’re pleased to offer them to you, our valued patient, as the state-of-the-art when it comes to teeth replacement. If you meet the qualifications that are necessary for them, you can get started right away with restoring your smile to being complete once again.
If you just have one or a few teeth that have been lost, you’ll get single implants, which are fixed restorations. However, implants can also be used as a foundation for a denture. Traditional dentures only sit on top of your gums, held in with messy adhesive. They can slide or move when you speak or chew, also. You don’t have to worry about that with our dental implants in Commack. The denture snaps onto the implants that are placed. It’s sill removable, but is 100% reliable, and requires no adhesive. So what makes you a good candidate for implants? The two most important conditions are that your gums are healthy, and that your jaw bone tests sufficiently thick and strong. The post for our dental implants in Commack are surgically placed in your jaw bone, where the tissue will grow around it and fuse with it. If you require it, bone grafting can be done to augment your jaw and make you eligible for an implant. Beyond your gums and jaw, factors that are taken into account include the presence of type one or type two diabetes, as well as whether you are a smoker. Neither will automatically disqualify you, but our implant dentist will discuss your circumstances with you as part of the determination process.
You’ve gone long enough with empty space where you used to have teeth. Contact our office today and set up a consultation and examination to change that.
