Whether you’re missing one tooth or an entire arch, our goal at LIC Dental Associates is to help you regain your complete smile with results that are as long lasting and natural-looking as possible, and no method helps us accomplish this goal better than dental implants. With the revolutionary power of implants, patients from Long Island City and beyond can enjoy revitalizing benefits, incredible durability, and a truly beautiful appearance they’ll be proud to show off to the world.

The Dental Implant Process

Dental implants are the frontrunner when it comes to reconstructive solutions due to a quality that makes them unique – they replicate both the root and the crown of the tooth, while traditional dentures and bridges only deal with the latter.This is crucial due to the fact that your jawbone can begin to deteriorate over time without a tooth root to stimulate it, leading to an increased risk of additional tooth loss and even a hunched facial appearance.

The implant process begins with the surgical placement of your new implant(s). Dr. Bizzell is a specialist who can handle this procedure comfortably and effectively. Once an appropriate amount of time has passed for your new implant(s) and jawbone to form a strong bond, you’ll return to our Long Island City dental practice so that we can create beautiful, high-quality restorations to sit right on top, completing your new and improved look.

Implant-Retained Prosthetics

While tooth-colored dental crowns are the norm for single dental implants, many patients need more than one tooth replaced, which can become expensive. Thankfully, the cost can be minimized by choosing an implant-retained prosthetic instead. Instead of one implant for each tooth, we’ll arrange for a small number of implants to be placed at strategic positions within your jawbone. Then, we’ll attach a custom-made bridge or denture to them, which replenishes all of your teeth at once. Both permanent and removable options are available, depending on your dental needs and preference.

When it comes to dental care, Dr. Ishwinder Saran and the rest of our dedicated staff always strive for excellence.
