Dental Implants FAQs

Dental Implants South Huntington NY | Dentistry By Design PC | Dentist in Long Island NY

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are titanium posts surgically placed into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow our dentist, Dr. Joseph Ayoub, to mount replacement teeth onto them. They are designed to provide a foundation for dental crowns, dental bridges, All-On-4 dental implants and other tooth replacement options that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.

How Many Dental Implants Do I Need?

The number of dental implants you need depends on the number and location of missing teeth. A single implant can support one or several replacement teeth—so you may not need one implant per replacement tooth. Our dental implant surgeon, Dr. Joseph Ayoub will create a personalized assessment and suggest the most effective treatment plan.

Am I A Candidate For Dental Implants?

Most patients who have lost a tooth, several teeth, or even all of their teeth are candidates for dental implants. However, the critical factor is having enough bone in the jaw to support the implant. Dr. Ayoub at Dentistry By Design, PC has extensive experience as an implant surgeon and can assess your case to determine if you are a candidate.

Can Implants Be Placed At The Same Time A Tooth Is Extracted?

In many cases, it is possible to extract a tooth and place an implant during the same surgery. This is known as immediate implant placement and can be beneficial in reducing the number of surgeries and overall treatment time.

Do Dental Implants Need Special Care And How Long Do They Last?

While implants don’t require any special products or care routines, maintaining good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups are crucial. Dental implants have the potential to last a lifetime when properly cared for, but the longevity depends on factors such as oral hygiene, lifestyle choices, and regular dental visits.
