Dental implant placement at Dr. John Gaeta’s practice in Glen Cove, New York is a revolutionary step forward in permanent teeth restoration. Dental implants are a more permanent, natural and esthetic treatment option for patients that may have loose fitting dentures or are missing teeth.
Dr. Gaeta uses uses 3D imaging technology to place implants, which means more accurate implant placement and better long term prognosis for his patients. His skill and experience in dentistry makes having implants placed in Dr. Gaeta’s practice an easy, painless visit. Patients report returning to work the same day implants have been placed.
This varies depending on the case. However, to replace a single tooth, in general there are three appointments. The first appointment enables us to take the diagnostic records necessary to plan the placement of the implant. This visit generally includes the 3D image of your mouth or the area where the implant will be placed to enable us to plan the best area for implant placement. During the second appointment the implant will be placed into the jaw bone. And, in the last appointment, a restoration will be placed on top of the implant, creating the “crown” of the tooth.
The timing of the implant placement appointment can vary depending on the number of implants being placed. However, Dr. Gaeta and his team take great care to insure that you are comfortable during the entire procedure. After the procedure, patients typically report no or sight discomfort which can be eliminated by taking ibuprofen, tylenol or both immediately after the procedure. While physical activity (sports and activities that raise your heart rate) should be curtailed after the procedure, you may go about your normal daily activities, including work.
There are other treatment options for replacing missing teeth. However, implants offer several advantages.
For a Single Missing Tooth:
When replacing a single missing tooth a “bridge” is often a possible treatment option. However, with a dental bridge healthy tooth structure on the adjoining teeth must be compromised in order to hold the bridge in place. Since dental implants to do not effect the health of adjacent teeth, frequently, implants a better options.
For Multiple Missing Teeth:
In some cases a removable denture or partial denture may be an option to replace multiple missing teeth. However, dentures are inserted in the mouth and often don’t have the same feel and look as natural teeth. Also, over time the bone in the jaw may change, causing denture that once fit snugly to become loose and require adjustment. Some patients also report some discomfort or soreness when wearing removable dentures, and it also take some time for patients to adapt to chewing and wearing removable oral appliances.
Implants can generally be completed on any healthy individual. However, there are some restrictions. For smokers or diabetic patients, often extra care must be taken when placing implants and during the healing phase. There are also several other health issues that may contra-indicate implant placement or decrease their chance for success.
