Gaps in your smile can cause embarrassment and discomfort. When left untreated, missing teeth can also lead to serious oral health issues.
At KFA Dental in Farmingdale, NY, we place and restore implants to replace missing teeth and provide unrivaled support for crowns, bridges, and dentures.
So why should you consider dental implants?
Let's take a look at how implant placement works...
Wondering whether dental implants can help you?
We May Recommend Implants for Severely Decayed or Damaged Teeth
Our dentists, Dr. Donald Kahn, Dr. Angela Ferrari, and Dr. Daniel Aldieri, always try to save damaged or decayed teeth when possible. However, there are some cases in which the best option for restoring oral health is a tooth extraction.
If you require extraction of one or more teeth, our team can provide complete replacement teeth supported by dental implants. By promptly replacing both the root and crown of a tooth, you can maintain the stability of your jaw and significantly improve the health of your smile.
There are some general requirements to qualify for implant dentistry...
Candidates for Dental Implants Should:
Need to Replace Teeth
Have Sufficient Jawbone Tissue
Be in Good Oral Health
Be a Nonsmoker
Some patients ask if dental implants are really worth the extra time and effort...
Dental Implants Are Unmatched in their Benefits
Dental implants are the only restorative treatment that can prevent the jawbone atrophy that occurs following tooth loss. By opting for implant-supported restorations, you can benefit from improved stability and a healthier smile. Patients who support their bridges or dentures with dental implants typically require fewer replacements and adjustments, saving time and money. Dr. Kahn, Dr. Ferrari, and Dr. Aldieri can oversee every step of your dental implants treatment at our comfortable office for a streamlined and convenient experience.
How do patients prepare for dental implants?
Treatment Begins with a Consultation
To decide if you are eligible for dental implants, one of our dentists will:
- Examine your smile
- Discuss your concerns
- Review your dental history
Our team can determine if you meet the criteria for implants using digital x-rays or, if necessary, by sending you to a partner facility for an advanced cone beam scan. This information can be used to determine whether you require a preparatory treatment, such as bone grafting. We offer convenient consultations to patients in Farmingdale, Long Island, and surrounding communities in and around Nassau County.
