Dental Implants

Dental implants are the gold standard in tooth replacement because they look and function similarly to natural teeth. Your custom-made implant will be composed of three parts:

  1. The titanium ‘root’ or implant post
  2. The connector piece called the abutment
  3. The restoration, usually a dental crown

The surgically inserted titanium post will fuse to your jawbone in osseointegration, giving your custom-made restoration the sturdy foundation it needs.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dr. Sigismondi recommends implant restorations because they offer far more aesthetic and health benefits than non-implant restorations. Some of these include:

group smiles
  • Lifelike — Dental implants feel and function like your natural teeth.
  • Stable — Implant restorations are strong and secure, allowing you to eat, speak, and smile confidently.
  • Prevents Misalignment — Dental implants return support to your remaining teeth, preventing mesial drift, which occurs when teeth shift out of place towards the front of your mouth, especially when there’s a space.
  • Prevents Facial Sagging — Your implant restorations will also restore support to the muscles in your face, preventing premature wrinkles.
  • Prevents Loss of Jawbone Density (Resorption) — Implants mimic the root of a tooth, providing the stimulation your jawbone requires to rebuild to remain healthy and strong.
  • Lasts A Lifetime — With proper oral hygiene and regular dental exams with our skilled implant dentist, your dental implant restorations can last 20 years to a lifetime.
  • Biocompatible Materials — The materials used in dental implants, such as titanium or zirconia, are readily accepted by the body.
  • Versatile — Implant restorations are customized to suit many types of tooth loss. They come in forms like crowns, bridges, or complete arches.

The Dental Implant Process

Before Dr. Sigismondi approves you for implant placement, he’ll have you attend an initial consultation. During your initial consultation, your West Sayville implant dentist will thoroughly examine your mouth, review your medical history, and ask about your smile goals. Using digital smile design, he’ll even be able to show you what your new smile will look like, so you can make an even better-informed decision.

We can offer sedation dentistry methods if you’re prone to dental anxiety or resistant to local anesthetic. The information Dr. Sigismondi gathers will allow him to determine if implants are the right restorative option for you.
