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, 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 that a partial or bridge.
Implant Retained Dentures
If you have been told that dental implants are not an option, or if you have too many missing teeth to replace them all with single implants, ask us about implant retained dentures.
What makes these dentures so different and so special is the fact that they are anchored to implant posts instead of resting on your gums and covering the roof of your mouth. They look beautifully natural, function like your own natural teeth, allow you to better enjoy your food, and never require soaking or denture adhesives.
We offer two outstanding options, All-on-4® and Teeth-in-a-Day. Both of these systems deliver superlative results with minimal discomfort and no compromise.
