Do dental implants procedures have side effects?

The most important thing to know about the dental implants Staten Island professionals at our office perform is that while the procedure is not a quick fix, it will definitively change your life for the better. Your specialist will initially take x-rays of your mouth and design a model of your existing teeth. By doing so, they can determine the most ideal position for your dental implant. There may also be instances where a bone or gum tissue graft will have to be performed in order to create the perfect amount of space for the dental implants. Our Staten Island professionals are experienced in handling these situations and will always work to give you the result you desire.

A local anesthetic will be used to ensure you don’t feel any pain during the procedure. If you have any medical issues and cannot receive a local anesthetic, please be sure to contact our office to find out if there are any other options for you.

The procedure for dental implants at our Staten Island location is a two part process. During your first visit, the dentist will securely place the implant. This part can take anywhere from one to three hours, depending on the number of implants being placed. You will then return six to twelve weeks later to have it covered with a crown resulting in a new, natural looking and strong tooth.
