You have taken the initiative to invest in your confidence by replacing your missing front tooth with a dental implant. While you no longer feel insecure about the empty space, a new issue has developed. Your adjacent teeth have started to become discolored over the years, causing the crown of the replacement tooth to stick out like a sore thumb. Since porcelain is stain-resistant, it will not lose its bright, white glow like that of your natural teeth.

Did 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.

If 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.

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.
