If you are thinking about getting dental implants, then you should visit our oral surgery practice, Elliott Ostro DMD. At our practice, patients are able to get NYC dental implants from our oral surgeon, Dr. Elliott Ostro, when they are suffering with tooth loss.
NYC dental implants can be used to replace a single tooth or many teeth. Our dental practice is limited to oral and maxillofacial surgery, and our implant dentist is able to provide you with dental implants which are precisely placed to help ensure a successful dental implant treatment. Our dental implants are made of titanium and are surgically implanted into the bone. There is then a healing period during which time the jawbone will fully heal and the dental implant root will firmly fuse to the jawbone. Once this is completed, a porcelain crown needs to be permanently attached to the top of the dental implant, and the patient’s new tooth will be complete. If you have been told that you are not a good candidate for getting dental implants, it may be because your jawbone is not thick enough or healthy enough to withstand the oral surgery procedure. At our oral surgery practice, you will be able to receive a bone graft. This procedure should be successful in making you a good candidate for dental implants as it will greatly increase the thickness of your jawbone. Our oral surgeon will be able to evaluate your individual situation and let you know if this is a good treatment option for you. Dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement method because they look, feel, and function just like regular teeth. And, if well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing and with periodic dental cleanings at your dentist’s office, your dental implant should be able to last you for a lifetime.
