of dedicated dental implant specialists, under one roof.
We’ll work together to restore your comfort and confidence.
We want you to look and feel your best, in our office and out.
Instead of using a single dental implant for every missing tooth, we can now use four implants on top and/or four on the bottom to anchor full, implant-supported dentures. Our doctors can attach a permanent denture at those spots.
Getting a dental implant for the first time can be daunting. You may fear experiencing pain and uncertainty from the procedure. There is a four-step process for getting permanent dentures:
- We make sure you are comfortable and administer local or general anesthesia.
- We prepare your mouth for dental implants, removing any remaining teeth that are failing along any diseased or infected tissue from your jaws and gums.
- We start the process by inserting the titanium screws into your jawbone. We typically place two implants toward the front of your mouth and two toward the back so they can evenly share the biting force placed on the dentures.
- After placing the implants, we thoroughly clean the surgical sites and suture the incisions. You’ll then go to a recovery room where you can relax and awaken from your anesthesia.
So the complete procedure includes anesthesia, surgical site preparation, implant placement, and postsurgical cleaning and suturing.
Your recovery time after traditional implant-supported dentures can range from three to eight months, but after getting permanent dentures, you should be functioning much sooner because the implants fuse to your bone and give immediate stability to dentures. Here’s what you can expect the recovery to look like starting the day of the procedure:
After the procedure, you’ll need to rest and avoid bending over, lifting heavy objects or performing any strenuous activities that could cause more bleeding and swelling.
If you normally exercise, you’ll need to avoid it for three or four days after surgery. Remember to rest, do pain management with medication prescribed by your dentist and eat soft, easy-to-chew foods. Avoid hard foods, candies or very hot foods, and avoid chewing if you do not have sensation in your tongue yet. Your dentist will likely advise you to consume only liquids or pureed foods for the first few days after your procedure.
We welcome patients from New Hyde Park and surrounding cities and towns.
