New York City Dental Implants

If you have missing teeth that you would like to have replaced, dental implants done by Elliot Ostro, DMD, represent the most advanced method available today. They’re safe, effective, and the not only look, but also feel very much like natural teeth do. If your missing teeth is visible (in the front of your mouth), our New York City dental implants will give you back your full smile. But even if it’s a back tooth, missing teeth often lead to shifting teeth and this can cause discomfort and a bite that’s off.

Compared to older and more traditional dental restorations like bridges and dentures, dental implants have some obvious advantages. First, they don’t slide around in your mouth nor do they require the use of messy adhesive to keep them in place. Your surrounding teeth remain unaffected by the placement of our New York City dental implants. Bridges are anchored to the tooth on either side by drilling down those teeth and placing crowns on them. With dental implants, you keep your remaining teeth intact.

How do dental implants work? First, you must be considered a good candidate for having one. This means that your gums must be in generally good health and that your jaw bone must be strong enough to hold the implant, a titanium rod that is inserted into it. Over the course of a few months, your bone grows around the implant causing it to fuse. This makes it both strong and permanent. But what if your jaw bone isn’t strong enough? Bone grafting, in which bone is harvested from elsewhere on your body and used to bolster your jaw bone, makes it possible for you to benefit from our New York City dental implants regardless. Personal habits like smoking and certain diseases such as diabetes can also affect your qualifications for dental implants. Dr. Ostro will discuss this with you. Once your implant is securely fused, a tooth-colored crown will be cemented on top to complete the process. The rate of success for dental implants is about 98%, so you can feel confident in choosing them.

Did you know that approximately three out of four people suffer from some form of periodontal or gum disease? In its mildest form, known as gingivitis, the disease has not progressed past the gums and is usually reversible. If conditions have deteriorated to the point where periodontitis has set in and the tissue and bone supporting the teeth have become perilously weakened, Central Park oral surgery may be required.

Periodontal disease progresses as the sulcus (pocket or space) between the tooth and gums gets filled with bacteria, plaque, and tartar causing irritation to the surrounding tissues. When these irritants remain in the pocket, they cause infection and damage to the gums and eventually, the bone that supports the teeth. If the disease has progressed to a more advanced stage, where the infection has caused bone loss and diseased pockets have formed, your treatment options may include Columbus Circle periodontal surgery. Dr. Ostro is fully equipped to perform this type of surgery and this procedure has saved thousands of questionable teeth with poor prognosis for many years.

If surgical therapy has been recommended to treat your periodontal disease, a determination has been made that the tissues around your teeth may not be treated or repaired using non-surgical treatment. The following are the five types of surgical treatments commonly performed by Central Park Oral Surgeon, Dr. Ostro:

  • Pocket Reduction Procedures
  • Regenerative Procedures
  • Crown Lengthening: Cosmetic or Conventional
  • Soft Tissue Grafts: Cosmetic Gum Enhancement or Soft Tissue Augmentation
  • Dental Implants
