Dental Implants Croton On Hudson, NY

The treatment options for replacing missing teeth have advanced in recent years with results that are almost indistinguishable from natural teeth from dental implants. Highly trained with over 20 years of experience in restorative dentistry, Dr. Bard Levey places dental implants for patients with missing teeth or to secure a poor fitting denture.

Dental implants have dramatically changed the landscape of restorative dentistry, enabling dentists like Dr. Levey in Croton On Hudson, NY to give patients back a smile that looks, feels and functions much like their natural smile did prior to tooth loss. Normal speech, a healthy diet without restriction and no need for daily maintenance are just a few of the benefits dental implants offer today’s patients.

Dr. Levey will evaluate your dental health and discuss your personal goals during a consultation to determine that you are a good candidate for dental implants.

About Dental Implants

A dental implant consists of a tiny, titanium post which is implanted into the jaw bone. This post supports the prosthetic tooth and acts as a tooth root, stimulating healthy bone growth which reduces the risk of jaw shrinkage- a common side effect of untreated tooth loss.

  • Improved bone and gum health (compared to alternative restorations)
  • Avoids degradation of remaining healthy teeth (as in conventional bridgework)
  • Improves the appearance of the smile and lower face
  • Patients can enjoy a healthy diet without restrictions
  • No worry of slippage or dentures “falling out”

What To Expect

Dr. Levey will coordinate the surgical phase of your procedure with a local oral surgeon who will perform the implantation of the post. In most cases, a period of 3-6 months recovery is necessary for all tissues to heal and the post to integrate into the bone.

The final restoration, a custom made dental crown, will be placed by Dr. Levey in our Croton On Hudson dentist office. Your new tooth will be adjusted for a comfortable fit and then permanently secured to the post.

Dental implants can be cared for just like natural teeth with daily brushing, flossing and routine dental visits to ensure oral health.

Benefits of Implant Secured Dentures

For patients needing to replace all of the upper or lower teeth, or with poor fitting dentures, Dr. Levey often recommends implant secured dentures.

Using as few as four dental implants, your custom denture can be permanently secured for a confident smile which will also support better long term dental health. The tiny posts will serve as tooth roots and help to stimulate bone growth in the jaw to maintain the shape of you lower face.
