What to Expect with Your Dental Implant Procedure
Take the First Steps Towards a Complete Smile
You may have heard about the advantages of choosing dental implants to replace missing teeth, but have you ever wondered what to expect with dental implants at National Dental’s East Meadow office? As a long-term investment in your oral health and smile, dental implants rely on the skill and artistry of those involved in the treatment process. Receiving surgical care from specialists in implant dentistry ensures your implants will be placed precisely and accurately using advanced surgical methods, including the administration of IV sedation. Knowing what to expect with dental implants and our treatment process can help determine if dental implants are the best option for you. From your free initial consultation to surgery and follow-up appointments, we are pleased to provide specialized, experienced, and affordable care that ensures your comfort, safety, and the success of your treatment.
Your Complimentary Initial Consultation
At National Dental, we want to make sure you are comfortable with your dental implants in East Meadow, NY, so we offer patients a complimentary dental implant consultation. During this consultation we will discuss your smile goals, needs and address any questions or concerns you may have. During this appointment, we also educate you on the treatment process, what happens during surgery, procedures you may need beforehand, the treatment timeline, estimated cost, and our financing options.
The Planning Phase
The dental implant planning phase includes a comprehensive evaluation of your mouth, x-rays, and imaging with a digital 3D cone beam CT scanner. From here, our team collaborates to create a personalized treatment plan for you and generate a unique dental implant guide. Guided implant surgery allows us to precisely place your dental implants effectively removing any guesswork.
What to Expect with Implant Surgery
As important as a highly aesthetic restoration is, creating the best foundation for your new tooth is just as critical for the long-term health and function of your smile. Dental implant surgery and restorations are routine procedures for our highly qualified team. We use precise protocols that consistently provide accurate and beneficial long-term results. We utilize our dental implant guide to give you accurate placement and offer multiple sedation options, including advanced IV sedation, so you experience minimal anxiety or discomfort.
The All-on-4™ Solution
If you need to replace an entire arch of teeth, we offer All-on-4™ full arch dental implants. You’ll be able to leave our office with a natural-looking and fully functional set of permanent teeth that can last you for years to come.
Restoring Your Dental Implants
Most dental implant patients, including those receiving All-on-4® full-arch implants, receive a temporary restoration the day of surgery. These restorations will be replaced once the dental implants are fully healed. Your final restoration will be completely customized to fit with your smile. At your appointment, we will securely attach the final restoration to your implants for a permanent, new smile!
Aftercare for Dental Implants
Dental implants are cared for just like natural teeth and require no additional special care. However, taking care of your dental implants is just as crucial for their longevity as caring for your natural teeth. As with your natural teeth, we recommend that you brush twice daily and floss once a day, visiting us bi-annually for dental examinations and hygiene appointments. Dental implants, when well cared for, provide patients with the following benefits: ability to eat and chew most foods; smile and talk with confidence; improve nutrition and diet; maintain a healthy jaw bone; and restore a beautiful, functioning smile.
