Dental Implants FAQ

Below we have listed some answers to our patients’ most commonly asked questions. If you have additional questions, call our phone number to speak with one of our dental implant specialists.

How much do dental implants cost?

Patients often ask us, how much does a dental implant cost? The cost of your dental implants depends on a number of factors like the number of missing teeth you are replacing, the location of the tooth loss in your mouth, if you need teeth removed or if you need a bone graft, dentures, bridges, or other prosthetics.

Implants do cost more than dentures and other prosthetics. A dental implant is not the right option for every patient. But, if implants are your goal, you may be able to use your dental insurance to cover the cost. We also have payment plans available for those who qualify.

How long will my dental implants take to heal?

Depending on the final restoration process, your dental implants can heal in as little as a few days or longer for a more involved dental treatment. Our Queens, NY oral surgeon will go over your healing protocol so you can protect your implants while they heal. You can expect follow-up appointments so our dentist can check the progress of your oral surgery.

What are “All on 4” dental implants?

For patients who require a full set of upper or lower replacement teeth, the All on 4 technique is a great alternative to a full set of dental implants. The All on 4 technique uses only four dental implants to set and hold your prosthetic in place.

Two implants are set at an angle in the rear of your mouth and two are installed at the front. Because the rear implants are installed at an angle, bone density is less of a problem. Also, because there are only four dental implants healing time is faster.

The All on 4 tequnique allows for greater flexibility of design. Our dental experts can better optimize the look and feel of your replacement teeth.

What are mini implants?

Mini implants are different than regular-sized implants in that they are smaller in size and have a different implant procedure. They are used to replace small teeth or to fill narrow gaps between your teeth.

Because they are smaller in size, mini implants are less invasive and require less bone mass to attach to. They are also less expensive than a regular implant and generally take less time to heal. They are just as durable and long-lasting as a full-size implant.

Implants or dentures, what’s the difference?Dental Implants in Queens, New York

Unlike traditional dentures, dental implants are a permanent solution for your missing tooth. They look and function just like your real teeth and fit perfectly with your remaining teeth. Implants allow proper chewing and they don’t need to be removed for special cleaning.

When you have implants, you don’t have to worry about things like loose dentures. With dental implants, your teeth look and feel completely natural. Implants are installed in your bone just like the natural root of your real teeth. Sturdy and corrosion-resistant titanium screws hold the implant in place.

With proper care implants can last a long time. Dentures rely on your existing teeth or other implants to remain firmly in place. They also must be replaced every few years and require special cleaning and maintenance. Dental implants are like brand new teeth. They blend in seamlessly with your natural teeth and they don’t restrict what you can eat like dentures and other prosthetics.

How do I get started?

The first step is to call our dentist and have our office staff set an appointment for an initial consultation. Our Queens dental office will assess your oral health to ascertain whether you are a good candidate for dental implant placement.

Our dentist will inspect your gum tissue and take x-rays to determine if bone loss is a concern. Your jaw bone must be robust enough to hold the titanium screw your implant relies on to remain anchored in place. If bone loss or a lack of bone growth is an issue, our oral surgeon may recommend a bone graft. Bone grafting is an implant dentistry procedure that can mitigate bone loss and promote new bone growth.

Once our oral surgeon has determined you are a good candidate for dental implant placement, they will review your implant treatment plan and answer any questions you might have. Queens, NY patients can be confident their oral surgery procedure and dental implant process will be carefully planned and implemented.
