Revitalize Your Smile with Dental Implants

April 30, 2024

At Great Neck Dental Arts, we believe that every smile deserves the best possible care, which is why we offer dental implants as a state-of-the-art solution for missing teeth. While traditional bridges and dentures are still effective options, dental implants come close to replicating the natural look, feel, and function of your original teeth.

Discover the Advantages of Dental Implants

With dental implants, you can enjoy all your favorite foods once again and smile with confidence and ease. Because dental implants act like natural tooth roots, they provide unparalleled stability for a variety of dental prostheses, including crowns and bridges up to a full set of teeth. For patients who wear full dentures, dental implants also offer the added security needed to improve comfort and prevent any embarrassing slippage.

A Versatile Solution for Tooth Replacement

Types of Dental Implants:

  • Single-tooth implant:

    When a single tooth is missing, a dental implant restored with a crown can replicate the natural tooth almost perfectly. Unlike traditional bridges that require the preparation and crowning of adjacent teeth, a single-tooth implant acts as a self-supporting and fully functional entity. This makes it an excellent solution for restoring a complete and attractive smile.

  • Implant-supported fixed bridges:

    Unlike conventional fixed bridges, an implant-supported bridge does not require the preparation or crowning of any adjacent natural teeth. Instead, it relies on a select number of strategically placed dental implants to support all the necessary crowns and replacement teeth. This approach helps preserve the integrity of your remaining natural teeth while providing ongoing bone stimulation to maintain facial contours.

  • Full arch replacement with four or six implants:

    As an alternative to full dentures, a complete set of replacement teeth supported by four or six strategically placed implants can successfully replicate the look and feel of a natural smile. Unlike traditional dentures that may slip or require adhesives, this approach offers a fixed solution that is both stable and non-removable. It also allows for the immediate placement of an attractive set of temporary teeth, with a permanent set to follow once the implants become fully integrated with the surrounding bone.

  • Implant-retained denture:

    An implant-retained denture attaches to a select number of strategically placed implants in your upper or lower jaw. These small surgical posts provide precise points of attachment for the overlying denture, adding stability and retention. This added level of security makes it easier to smile, speak, and eat with confidence.
