Implant Dentistry

If you are missing one or more of your original teeth, dental implants from Restorative and Implant Dentistry of Bayside can offer a more stable, functional, and esthetic alternative to traditional dental techniques. Regardless of the situation, our dentist and prosthodontist, Sameet Sheth, DDS, FACP will develop a customized treatment plan that is suited to your needs and goals. Both Dr. Sheth and Dr. Michael Cote, our periodontist, have extensive training in site development for an eventual dental implant, as well as placement of the actual implant. Although by no means a "quick fix," dental implants can provide an ideal solution to missing teeth for many of our patients, allowing them to function and smile with greater confidence.

For more about dental implants, we encourage you to review the informational sections below and continue exploring our site. If you would like to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sheth or Dr. Cote, please contact our office.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants offer a number of practical advantages over traditional dentures and fixed bridges. Because they are permanently anchored into your jaw, dental implants can look, feel, and function like natural teeth. Unlike ill-fitting dentures, which can slip and move along the gumline, dental implants are secure and stable. Dental implants are self-supporting, which means that the structure of your surrounding teeth does not have to be prepared as with a traditional fixed bridge. Or, if you have no remaining natural teeth, they can be used to stabilize custom implant overdentures. In addition, dental implants are remarkably convenient, requiring a similar hygiene routine of brushing, flossing, professional hygiene, and regular dental examinations. In virtually every way, dental implants allow you to regain the control and assurance you had with your natural teeth.

Candidates for Dental Implants

If you are interested in having dental implant surgery, you will first meet with Dr. Sheth, who will evaluate your oral and overall health to determine whether you are an appropriate candidate for therapy. Most patients with generally good health and adequate jawbone width and height are suitable for the procedure. If you require bone grafting to create a more stable foundation for dental implants, Dr. Sheth or Dr. Cote can perform those procedures. For those patients willing or able to devote the necessary time, dental implant surgery is currently one of the most effective and consistently successful of all dental procedures.

Dental Implants Procedure

Composed of a titanium alloy, dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into your jaw. All surgeries and implant placements are typically performed right here in our office by Dr. Sameet Sheth and Dr. Michael Cote. The preliminary phase of your treatment plan may include procedures to improve your dental health, extract teeth, and/or prepare your jawbone for implant surgery. Using 3-dimensional CAT scans and guides, the surgery is digitally planned and customized for each patient. Based on this virtual surgical plan and the use of guides, the implants are placed within your jawbone and then allowed to heal and integrate with the bone. Proper osseointegration and soft tissue repair can take between two to six months (or sometimes longer) depending on your unique rate of healing. During this time, Dr. Sheth will provide you with a temporary prosthesis to minimize inconvenience and conceal your healing implants. When you are completely healed, he can attach custom crafted crowns, bridges, or dentures to the titanium roots to complete your new smile.

Results with Dental Implants

By offering dental implants to our patients, we are able to restore the function, appearance, and feel of missing teeth with outstanding results. Dr. Sheth’s and Dr. Cote’s level of skill and extensive experience with dental implants make them a superior choice for performing your implant surgery and restoration. At every stage of treatment, they are attentive to your progress and concerns, and works tirelessly to provide the highest quality results. Ideally, dental implants should last a lifetime with minimal maintenance.
