Revitalize Your Smile With Dental Implants

June 10, 2024

At Great Neck Dental Arts, we specialize in the latest techniques for replacing missing teeth, including dental implants. While traditional fixed bridges and dentures remain effective options, dental implants offer a more natural look, feel, and function by mimicking the roots of your natural teeth.

Discover the Advantages of Dental Implants

With dental implants, you can enjoy all your favorite foods once again and smile confidently without any worries about slipping or discomfort. Because dental implants function similarly to the roots of natural teeth, they provide unparalleled stability for a variety of dental prosthetics, including crowns and bridges up to an entire set of teeth. For those who wear full dentures, dental implants also enhance comfort and fit while eliminating any embarrassing slippage.

A Versatile Solution for Missing Teeth

Types of Dental Implants:

  • Single-tooth implant:

    When a single tooth is missing, a dental implant restored with a crown closely resembles the appearance and function of your natural teeth. Unlike traditional bridges that require the preparation and crowning of adjacent teeth, a single-tooth implant acts as an independent entity that provides optimal support for your new smile.

  • Implant-supported fixed bridges:

    Unlike conventional fixed bridges to replace multiple missing teeth, an implant-supported bridge does not necessitate the preparation and crowning of adjacent natural teeth. Instead, it relies on a strategic number of dental implants to secure all necessary crowns and replacement teeth. This approach helps preserve the integrity of your remaining teeth while providing ongoing stimulation to prevent bone loss and 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 dental implants can effectively restore the beauty and function of your natural smile. Unlike traditional dentures, this method offers a fixed solution that is both stable and non-removable. It eliminates the need for messy adhesives and simplifies cleaning while boosting confidence as you speak, eat, and smile.

  • Implant-retained denture:

    As the name suggests, this type of denture attaches to a select number of strategically placed implants in your upper or lower jaw. These small surgical posts provide secure points of attachment for your overlying denture and enhance stability and retention. This added level of security allows you to smile, speak, and eat with greater confidence and ease.
