Staten Island Implant Dentistry
Get Back To Life With A Smile!
Missing teeth can just erase your confidence. They are unattractive, collapsing your face and causing you to look far older than you need to. They are unhealthy too – your teeth can begin to drift out of position and this can lead to a change in your bite, loss of additional teeth, tooth decay, gum disease, as well as migraine headaches. And if you are missing teeth, you aren’t alone. More than 20 million people in America are edentulous or without teeth.
Implants - A Fabulous And Freeing Alternative For Missing Teeth
Implants feel so natural and make you so comfortable that you may forget they are there!
Implants are actually small posts made of titanium, surgically placed into the bone socket to replace the root of a missing tooth. A strong and durable replacement tooth, made to match your surrounding natural teeth and blend perfectly, is then anchored in place to let you enjoy laughing with confidence, smiling comfortably, and even eating your favorite foods.
Dr. Ratner is highly experienced in the placement of dental implants – he has placed over 1,700 implants!
Better Health - Better Appearance
Dental implants offer better health by giving you the ability to bite and chew, creating balance and harmony, reducing chances of gum disease, and enhancing your appearance – and your freedom to enjoy life again!
Single Tooth Implants
No matter why you have lost a tooth – injury, a congenital defect, or decay– a single tooth implant offers the most convenient and comfortable solution available. Because it replaces both the visible tooth and the root, it is more stable and natural-feeling than a partial or bridge.
Implant Retained Dentures
If you have been told that implants are not an option for your missing teeth, or if you need to replace several teeth, we have an alternative solution to consider.
Our implant-retained dentures are anchored to implant posts, which look and function like natural teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, they don’t require adhesives, don’t cover the roof of your mouth, and let you enjoy your food with ease.
We offer a fantastic option, All-on-4®, also known as Teeth-in-a-Day. Both of these systems deliver superlative results with minimal discomfort and no compromise.
