How Can Dental Implants Benefit You?

Take this 15-second quiz to see if dental implants are right for you!

The loss of even one tooth can seriously impact the health of your smile, the function of your bite, and your sense of confidence.

With dental implants from Astoria Dental Group, you can get a lasting solution for tooth loss that looks and feels like your natural teeth.

Our dentists, Clifford Degel and Carmen Every-Degel, are leading providers of implant dentistry in Queens, NY, serving the entire NYC area.

How Can Dental Implants Benefit You?

Dental implants are titanium devices placed in the jaw tissue to replace lost tooth roots. They support lifelike crowns, bridges, or dentures. This treatment is widely considered the gold standard for tooth replacement, and it can enhance your life in several significant ways:

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

Your tooth roots stimulate your jaw tissue every time you bite down. Without that stimulation, 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 provide this stimulation in the absence of tooth roots and protect the health of your jawbone.

Implants are surgically embedded in the jawbone and become fused with the bone tissue over the course of several months in a process known as osseointegration. Afterward, they mimic the function of natural tooth roots, preserving your health and appearance while also providing an incredibly stable foundation for dental restorations.

Our Featured Implant Services

monarch-floral 1

Our Queens, NY, dentists offer a wide range of implant treatment methods. Some of our most popular options include:

Implant-Supported Crowns

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.

Implant-Supported Bridges

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.

Implant-Supported Dentures

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

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.

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

There’s a wide range of materials to choose from when crafting an implant-supported restoration. We’re committed to using only the best at our Queens, NY, practice.

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.

Are Dental Implants Right for You?

monarch-floral 1

You are probably a candidate for treatment with implants if you have:

Missing Teeth

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.

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

There’s a wide range of materials to choose from when crafting an implant-supported restoration. We’re committed to using only the best at our Queens, NY, practice.

Bone Grafts

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.

Sinus Lifts

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

We can complete every step of the implant process at our practice.

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.

Meet With Your Dentist

During your initial consultation, your dentist will conduct a thorough oral health examination to determine which course of treatment is right for you. We may recommend a preparatory treatment at this step.

Implant Placement

In your first procedure, small incisions will be made in your gums, and your titanium implant posts will be placed in your jawbone. When needed, we use computer-guided technology for the ultimate precision during implant placement. You'll be able to wear temporary restorations during your healing period.

First Healing Period

It takes about 4 to 6 months for implant posts to fully fuse with the jawbone.

Abutment Placement

Small connector pieces called abutments will be attached to your implants. These will hold your restorations in place.

Second Healing Period

Your gums will need some time to heal around your new abutments. The healing period after abutment placement tends to be about two weeks.

Restoration Placement

Once your gums have healed, you'll be ready to receive your permanent crowns, bridges, or dentures. Your dentist will secure your restorations and make some minor adjustments as necessary to achieve the most precise fit.

Dental Anxiety is No Problem

Vector (18)

We understand that dental treatment can be a source of anxiety and fear for some, and some patients require a higher level of pain management. Our office goes above and beyond to ensure that each and every patient that walks through our doors is completely comfortable before, during, and after treatment. However, we also know that some patients simply need an extra level of care in order to undergo dental treatment. We offer two forms of sedation at our practice in Queens to meet our patients’ needs.

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

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.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Vector (18)

The average cost to replace one tooth with a dental implant and restoration is $3,000 at our Queens, NY, practice. Our average cost for a full-arch implant solution is around $25,000. However, because treatment with implants is so individualized, your final cost can vary widely.

Factors that may affect the price of your treatment include the number of implants you need, whether you undergo preparatory procedures like bone grafting or tooth extraction, and whether you receive sedation during surgery.

Insurance and Dental Implants

Implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures typically qualify for insurance coverage. However, implants and abutments do not. We accept many insurance plans and will work with your provider to help you get the most from your plan.

We Offer Financing

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.

Patient Financing

The Risks and Benefits

monarch-floral 1
Of Dental Implants

All types of oral surgery carry risks, including postsurgical bleeding and infection. However, these risks are quite low when you choose a reputable practice to provide your implants. Meanwhile, the benefits that dental implants offer can be life-changing. Our Queens dental team will speak with you in-depth about the risks and benefits of implants during your initial consultation. We also want to take a moment to address two of the main concerns patients have when first exploring the dental implant process:

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.
