Tooth loss is more common than you may think, but that doesn't mean you have to continue to suffer from its effects. Dental implants paired with a custom restoration will look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth, and provide a host of other oral health benefits. Request a consultation online or call us today to see if dental implants are right for you.
How Can Dental Implants Benefit You?
Transform Your Self-Image
After tooth loss, it can feel like the gaps in your smile are the only things others see when they look at you. By filling in for missing teeth, implant-supported restorations can give you a complete smile again. You can enjoy a renewed sense of confidence in your appearance and the ability to smile freely in any situation.
Promote Oral Health
Replacing missing natural teeth with implant-supported restorations prevents your existing teeth from shifting, which can require orthodontic correction. Meanwhile, implants are the only solution that can stop the bone atrophy that follows tooth loss. Implants are a worthwhile investment to prevent the need for costly and extensive dental work in the future.
Enjoy Lasting Results
Titanium implants and the restorations they support are made to last. With good care and regular checkups at our Queens practice, your implant-supported restorations can last for over 10 years, and your implants can last for several decades.
Implants Provide Essential Stimulation And Prevent Jaw Atrophy
Your tooth roots stimulate your jaw tissue every time you bite down. When you lose a tooth, that stimulation stops.
Your jaw will begin to atrophy, which can cause your remaining teeth to shift and your facial appearance to change, along with pain and other serious complications. Dental implants are the only restorative treatment that provides this stimulation in the absence of tooth roots and protects the health of your jawbone.
Finally, they also refine your appearance, with a custom crown, denture, or bridge secured to your dental implant via the abutment.

Our Featured Implant Services
An implant-supported crown can fill the gap left behind by a single missing tooth. In some cases, we may be able to place your crown on the same day of your implant surgery. Some patients may also be able to receive a titanium implant immediately after tooth extraction.
An implant-supported bridge can replace several consecutive missing teeth. Your natural-looking bridge will be composed of one or more prosthetic teeth fixed between two implant-supported crowns on either end.
If you have been using traditional dentures, an implant-supported denture can significantly improve the stability and function of your bite. Secured to several strategically placed implants, your denture can completely rejuvenate your smile.
Mini Dental Implants
Mini implants can be a fantastic option for patients who cannot undergo a bone graft due to age or medical factors. At roughly half the diameter of a traditional implant, mini implants support the same lifelike restorations with excellent stability and offer quicker recovery times after placement.
Same-Day Dental Implants
Thanks to the Mini Drive-Lock (MDL®) System, we can provide many qualified patients with brand-new smiles in just one day. This system works especially well for implant-supported dentures. Your dentist can place mini dental implants and special receptacles that attach to restorations in a simpler procedure than traditional implant placement. Your restorations will snap on to your implants via the receptacles and give you a stable, fully functional bite.
What Are Restorations Made Of? Materials Make a Difference
Your crown, bridge, or denture will be made of the highest-quality porcelain or zirconia, two highly regarded materials used in restorative dentistry. Both porcelain and zirconia are extremely durable and able to withstand years of use without chipping or cracking, although zirconia is the stronger material. Meanwhile, they possess nearly identical aesthetic properties to natural teeth and can be precisely color matched to the rest of your smile. We can help determine which type of implant will best meet your needs and goals during a consultation.
We Restore Dental Implants Contact Us to Rejuvenate Your Smile
Our services aren't limited to patients who are at the beginning of their implant journey. If you have older implant-supported restorations that are at the end of their life cycle, we can replace them with gorgeous, custom-made crowns, bridges, or dentures.
Are you ready to refresh your smile with new restorations that look and feel just like the real thing? Send us a message or call our Queens office to get started.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?
We can treat all types of tooth loss with implants. Additionally, if you have severely decayed or damaged teeth in need of extraction, we can remove them as part of your implant treatment timeline.
Good Jawbone Density
Implant placement requires a sufficient amount of existing jaw tissue. If your jaw has deteriorated from tooth loss, we can perform a preparatory bone graft or sinus lift to restore density. Your dentist can determine whether you need preparatory work during your consultation.
Good Oral Health
It's important that you're in a state of good overall oral health before pursuing dental implants. Some patients need treatment for gum disease or dental decay, which we can also perform at our practice.
We Perform Preparatory Procedures To Make Treatment Possible for More Patients
During this procedure, your dentist will transplant either natural bone tissue or a synthetic bone-like material into the parts of your jaw affected by deterioration. This provides a strong foundation upon which your own bone tissue can regenerate. It typically takes at least four months of healing after a bone graft to be ready for dental implants.
A sinus lift can be performed if you have insufficient bone tissue or if your sinuses are too close to your upper jawbone to place an implant. Your dentist will gently lift the sinus membranes at the back of your jaw and place a graft of bone or synthetic tissue beneath them. This will create a base for the implants and prevent disrupting the sinuses.
The Dental Implant Timeline
This is what you can expect throughout the traditional implant treatment process. If you're receiving mini dental implants, same-day implants, or an alternative treatment, our dentists will provide a step-by-step overview of the process during your consultation at our Queens office.
We can complete every step of the implant process at our practice.

Dental Anxiety is No Problem
Oral Conscious Sedation
Oral conscious sedation involves taking medication before your treatment. This anti-anxiety medication will help you feel relaxed during your dental procedure. You will need a responsible adult to drive you to and from your appointment, as this medication will take a few hours to wear off completely.
IV sedation is administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. Once the medication is administered, you will be completely relaxed. Patients often experience an amnesic effect, and do not remember their treatment at all. Like oral conscious sedation, you will need a responsible adult to drive you to and from your appointment.

The Risks and Benefits Of Dental Implants
Is Implant Surgery Uncomfortable?
If you're concerned that your treatment will be painful, there's nothing to fear. Dental implants can typically be placed using only local anesthetic. However, if you need extra help feeling relaxed, we offer both oral conscious sedation and IV sedation.
How Successful Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants have extremely high success rates among all tooth restoration options. A clinical study that surveyed 5,200 dental implant patients showed a 90-95% success rate over a 10-year period.
