Dental Implants Massapequa Residents Rely On – South Shore Dental Care

September 4, 2015

Woman smiling with beautiful teeth thanks to the dental implants massapequa lovesDid you know that even one missing tooth can change your face? Over time, the jawbone and gum tissue that support and shape facial features deteriorate creating wrinkles, indentations, and sagging. Even patients who wear traditional dentures experience these changes because the root of the tooth actually stimulates the retention of gum tissue and bone density. Traditional tooth replacement options only restore the visible parts of teeth, but dental implants replace the entire tooth from the roots up. That means patients are better able to retain gum tissue and bone density, and maintain their youthful appearance. At South Shore Dental Care, we offer the dental implants Massapequa residents prefer. Our skilled dentists, friendly team, and patient-centered care make us the ideal dental implant dentist for all of Long Island. Call to schedule a dental implant evaluation today.

Dental Implants in Massapequa Park

May 10, 2015

134124545If you have even one missing tooth—to say nothing of having several missing teeth—then you know the consequences can be more than just inconvenient. First, you may not be able to eat the food you enjoy most, such as a fresh apple or a juicy steak. In addition, your diet may not be well-balanced and nutritious because you must eliminate healthy foods that are difficult to chew, such as many fresh fruits and vegetables. Then there is the whole issue of what missing teeth can do to your ability to speak clearly or smile and laugh with confidence. If this describes your situation, then you should consider dental implants for your teeth replacement. Dr. Dory Stutman and Dr. Khalida Stutman of South Shore Dental Care have restored the smiles of many patients in Massapequa Park, NY, and the surrounding communities. With dental implants, they can do the same for you.

You may have missing teeth for a number of different reasons:

  • Severe tooth decay
  • A traumatic tooth injury
  • A failed root canal
  • Congenital defects
  • Gum disease
  • Certain medical treatments, such as some types of chemotherapy

Regardless of why you have missing teeth, the need for tooth replacement cannot be understated.

The Dental Implant Difference

When you come to South Shore Dental Care for your dental implants, you can take comfort in knowing that they entire procedure will be completed in the comfort and convenience of our office. There’s no need to see an implant specialist, because our dentist are skillfully trained in the procedure.

First, one of our dentists will surgically implant a small titanium post in the jaw bone beneath your missing tooth. This post will serve as the “root” of your new tooth. As such, the post anchors the custom designed porcelain crown that will ultimately sit on top of the post. Moreover, the post and surrounding bone tissue fuse together, forming a solid foundation that is as solid as one of your natural teeth. In addition, the relationship between post and bone can help you avoid bone deterioration that can lead to facial sagging. Therefore, with dental implants, you’ll not only be able to confidently eat, speak and smile, you’ll look better and younger for years to come.

Dental Implants FAQ

Dental implants are tiny biocompatible titanium posts which serve to replace both your missing tooth and your missing tooth’s root.

  • How Are They Placed?

Dental implants are placed gently in the jawbone through the gum line. The implants then require several weeks to fully fuse with your natural bone structure.

Dental implants are, by far, the most effective and beneficial form of natural tooth replacement available today. Implants offer stability, comfort, and ease of care not afforded by dentures. Implants are also better for your long term oral and overall health than dental bridgework. In fact, implants are the only tooth replacement method which actually preserves your natural bone structure and youthful facial features.

Advantages of Dental Implants

March 20, 2013

Last time, we talked about dental implants and why they’re important for the health of your smile. Today we’re going to compare dental implants to other tooth replacement methods to see why they’re the most effective option to restore the health, appearance and function of your smile. At South Shore Dental Care, we want our patients to be fully informed about all their smile choices.

When people think of replacing missing teeth, their first thought is often dentures. Dentures are a traditional way to help restore function if you’ve lost all or nearly all of your teeth. However, they’re removable, so there’s always the risk of them slipping or coming loose in public.

Crowns and bridges can also be used to replace missing teeth. While these can be sturdier than dentures, they don’t do anything about the missing tooth roots. Your tooth roots are important because without them, you could lose bone from your jaw.

Only dental implants give you a secure fit while creating a replacement tooth root to ensure the health of your jaw bone. Dental implants not only stop any further bone loss, but they can sometimes encourage growth of the jaw bone to replace what has been lost.

At South Shore Dental Care, we’re committed to providing our patients with a wide array of dental services, high-quality cosmetic dentistry, and up to the minute dental technology. Our Massapequa dental office serves patients from Long Island, Merrick, Bellmore, and Wantagh. Call us today to schedule your appointment.

What are Dental Implants?

March 6, 2013

If you’re missing a tooth, the health of your smile is at risk until it is repaired. Once you lose a tooth, your risk for losing more teeth increases. Also, your remaining teeth can shift around into the empty space and result in a misaligned bite, and risk losing part of your jaw bone. Dental implants from South Shore Dental Care are a great way to help restore a missing tooth and prevent negative consequences to your smile.

When you have a dental implant, a titanium post will be inserted into your jaw to create the base for your implant. The post will bond with your jaw bone over time, mimicking the root of a natural tooth. A crown will be custom made to resemble your natural teeth and placed on top. At our office, we can both place and restore your dental implants, so you don’t have to go to anyone else.

If you take care of your implant just as you would your natural teeth, with proper brushing, flossing and dental visits, it can last you a long time. We want all our patients to have beautiful, healthy smiles, and dental implants is a great way to do so. If you’re interested or want to know more, call us to schedule your consultation.

At South Shore Dental Care, we’re committed to providing our patients with a wide array of dental services, high-quality cosmetic dentistry, and up to the minute dental technology.

How Can I Stop Further Tooth Loss?

June 29, 2012

Have you lost one or more teeth as a result of decay or an injury? Are you worried now about losing more teeth? Your concern is understandable. When you lose a tooth, you also lose the root that anchored it to your jaw. And that right there is why you could lose another tooth further down the road.

Here’s why.

When you lose a tooth root, the part of your jawbone it used to be in contact with doesn’t have a purpose anymore. As a result, it will begin to atrophy. With time, more bone tissue will be affected, increasing your risk of losing one or more healthy teeth.

But there is a way to stop all this.

Preserve Your Smile with Dental Implants

If you’re worried about losing more teeth, call South Shore Dental Care to find out how dental implants can help you stop further tooth loss. As one of the most effective restorative dentistry solutions available, dental implants can restore strength and function to your entire smile, including your jaw. They do this by replacing your missing tooth and your missing root, helping your jaw grow new bone tissue and remain naturally strong.

Do you want to find out if dental implants are right for you? Then give our Massapequa dental office a call today. During your appointment, your doctor will have a chance to examine your smile and recommend a treatment plan.

At South Shore Dental Care, Dr. Dory Stutman and Dr. Khalida Stutman happily serve patients Massapequa, Long Island, Merrick, Bellmore, Wantagh, and surrounding areas. We look forward to hearing from you!
