Making Dental Implants AffordableThe need for a dental implant can arise at any time, and finding yourself with a missing tooth can lead to a very stressful situation. At Island Dental Associates, we want to make sure that all of our Long Island area patients have the care and services they need, so we want to make dental implants affordable to all who find themselves in need of them. A dental implant is just that, a new implanted tooth to replace one that has gone missing, and they help to keep adjacent teeth from moving into the new space or becoming loose.

The dental implant process is a simple one:

  1. A small titanium post is placed where the root structure of the missing natural tooth once was, and left to heal to the jawbone and gum structure surrounding it.
  2. An extension is sometimes added during the initial placing of the post or afterward to allow for the crown placement.
  3. A crown is placed which resembles a natural tooth, and allows the patient to have a tooth within the area once again. This crown can be used for chewing, brushing, and flossing, and acts just as a natural tooth would.

Dental implants are the best solution for missing teeth, but their price will often turn patients off from getting the much needed procedure. At Island Dental Associates, we want to make the decision to have this procedure much easier on our Long Island area patients, so we make our dental implants affordable and offer them along with 0% financing plans so you can pay for your dental implant over time.
