I have been a patient at Astoria Dental for over 15 years, along with my son. We love the doctors and the staff, many of whom have worked there for just as long. It's not one of those big, fancy doctor's offices, but you'll find it's clean, welcoming, and keeps current with modern technology. They accept most insurance plans and will help you arrange financing if you need help with copays. Astoria Dental is the best! View On Google +

Dental implants function just like natural tooth roots...

If you've lost some of your teeth, you aren't alone...

The procedure can be used to replace any number of teeth...

If you have lost a single tooth or require a tooth extraction to restore your health, an implant-supported dental crown can seamlessly blend with your smile.

If you have two or three consecutive missing teeth, an implant-supported dental bridge can replace them and keep surrounding teeth properly aligned.

Titanium posts can also be used to anchor complete dentures, preventing slipping and clicking while allowing you to enjoy your favorite foods.

Stop Jawbone Atrophy

Another reason implants are widely considered the best method of tooth replacement is that they are the only dental treatment that can stop bone atrophy in the jaw. Immediately after you lose a tooth, the bone tissue begins to recede. Left untreated, this can leave your face looking sunken or aged, while also disrupting the alignment of your remaining teeth. 

Just like tooth roots, the titanium base of implants provide the stimulation necessary to keep your jawbone healthy and strong

How Dental Implants Can Transform Your Life

Barbara Wilson says she feels fantastic after having her smile renovated with implants and a fixed bridge. She originally had implants installed by a different dentist and was unhappy with the results. That is when she turned to the smile specialists at Astoria Dental Group. Not only did Dr. Degel restore Barbara's smile, he helped her recapture her confidence.

Why Are Dental Implants the Gold Standard?

The loss of even one tooth can seriously impact both the function of your bite and your confidence in your appearance. Adjacent teeth can be compromised by the gap left by a missing tooth, shifting position or becoming more vulnerable to chips and cracking. Unlike traditional bridges and dentures, implants are the only restorative option that guards against these health problems while also preserving a strong, healthy jaw.

Weighing Advantages vs. Risks

Dental implants have several proven benefits, including: 

  • The restorations require fewer revisions than traditional bridges and dentures.
  • They prevent the side effects of tooth loss–namely, gum recession, bone loss, and speech difficulties.
  • We can restore proper chewing function and the full strength of your bite.
  • Implant restorations are comfortable and convenient.
  • Unlike other dental restorations such as bridges, implants do not require the grinding down of the teeth on each side of the gap
  • Dental implants can make dentures secure and reliable: say goodbye to messy adhesives and slipping, uncomfortable restorations
  • By preventing further bone loss, they preserve the appearance of your face and prevent sunken cheeks
  • Dr. Degel may be able to place your implants the same day as your extraction!​

Even with all of their advantages, patients should consider the risks associated with dental implants as well. All types of oral surgery carry rare, yet serious, risks including excessive bleeding, infection, and more. Our team will educate you on the risks and benefits of dental implants, including your healing and recovery after your surgery and what you need to know before your procedure.

Of all dental restoration solutions, dental implants have the highest rate of success. They look, feel, and function just like real teeth, and can last a lifetime with proper care.

How the Treatment Works

The dental implant process involves the placement of a small titanium post. An abutment is then attached to this titanium base. This abutment allows our dentist to place your final restoration–in this case, a dental crown–securely to your implant. The end result is a restoration that blends seamlessly with your natural teeth.

Candidacy Requirements

For our patients in Queens, NY,  Long Island, and throughout NYC, dental implants offer a permanent and proven solution to missing teeth. If our dentist determines implants are the right option for you, our team will walk you through every step of the dental implant process, from planning to the initial surgery and abutment placement, through to the attachment of the final restoration. We can even perform a restoration on work that has been previously done.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Degel will evaluate your bone and gum health to determine whether you are a good candidate for implants. Factors that must be considered include:

Depending on how long you have suffered from a missing tooth or teeth, the bone tissue in your jaw may be too compromised to support dental implants. A bone graft can restore your candidacy or we may recommend mini implants as an alternative treatment.

Smoking not only inhibits your body's ability to heal. The habit can also increase your risk of experiencing implant failure. If you are considering implants and you smoke, you will need to quit several months prior to surgery and plan to stop smoking for good.  

Healthy gums are crucial to provide a strong foundation for your smile. If you suffer from gum disease, you will require periodontal treatment to restore your health before you can move forward with dental implants.

Conditions like diabetes increase the risks associated with surgery and inhibit the healing process. Fortunately, patients with controlled diabetes have similar success rates to those without diabetes.

I've visited both Dr Every and Dr Degel and have had great experiences with both, with extensive work being done- extraction, implants, bridge, veneers, Invisalign, crowns, root canals and the basic cavities. The assistants are very helpful, staff is competent and friendly, the dental hygienist does a great job and I've never had to wait. View On Google +

What to Expect During the Process

Immediate Dental Implants with the Mini Drive-Lock System

Astoria Dental Group is among the first dentists to offer patients from throughout Long Island and greater NYC the option of immediate dental implants using the Mini Drive-Lock (MDL) Dental System.

Using the MDL system, your dentures can be made more secure than ever, and the implant procedure can usually be accomplished in a single visit.

The key to the MDL system is a miniature implant that can be placed in the jaw without complicated oral surgery. Using only a local anesthetic, we can secure the implant in the bone. Because of the bone's elastic nature, it will immediately hold the small implants in place. We then fit your dentures with receptacles that will allow you to snap them into place over the dental implants. Your dentures will remain firmly in place until you decide to remove them. You'll never have to depend on messy, unreliable adhesives again.

Implants in a Day Using the SimPlant System

The SimPlant system uses a CT scan to create a highly detailed image of your mouth that shows the condition of your jawbone and the optimal sites for dental implants. The patient can have this CT scan taken anywhere in the world, and the digital image can be e-mailed to our Queens, NY, dentist.

You can get a new smile in just one day using a digitalized, streamlined process!

Using the CT scan image, the SimPlant Software creates a template as a guide to the proper placement of the dental implants. Using this guide, Dr. Degel secures the implant posts and crowns and uses BOTOX® Therapeutic to reduce the amount of stress placed on the new implant. By combining the SimPlant system with MDL miniature implants, dentures can be secured in one day. After one visit, you can leave our office with a beautiful, functional smile!
