Dental Implants

If you lose one or more teeth due to periodontal disease, or another cause, there is hope. Dental implants are changing the way people live! They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that their teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved. Patients with dental implants can smile with confidence.

What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.  The dental implants themselves are small titanium posts that are surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These metal anchors act as tooth root substitutes.  The bone bonds with the titanium, creating a strong foundation for artificial teeth. Small posts that protrude through the gums are then attached to the implant. These posts provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth. Dental Implants also help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone deterioration that occurs when teeth are missing.

What Types of Prostheses are Available?

A single prosthesis (crown) is used to replace one missing tooth – each prosthetic tooth attaches to its own implant. A partial prosthesis (fixed bridge) can replace two or more teeth and may require only two or three implants. A complete dental prosthesis (fixed bridge) replaces all the teeth in your upper or lower jaw. The number of implants varies depending upon which type of complete prosthesis (removable or fixed) is recommended. A removable prosthesis (over denture) attaches to a bar or ball in socket attachments, whereas a fixed prosthesis is permanent and removable only by a professional.

Drs. Albert Konikoff, Bryan Konikoff and Trang Salzberg have received extensive training in Dental Implantology.  Through continuing education, Drs. Konikoff, Konikoff and Salzberg are abreast of the most current information on implant dentistry, such as Bar Attachment Denture.

This visit was not my first lifetime visit for dental surgery thus I was generally prepared for what was to come as well as the post surgical recovery. My expectations were completely and fully met by Dr. Brian Konikoff and staff via the professional attention to detail, procedure efficiency, communication about the procedure, time spent with me, and the welcomed discount for cash. What I was not prepared for was the karaoke performance by Dr, Konikoff (yes he can carry a tune) to one of my favorite songs of all time; "American Pie" by Don McLean. Going forward that song, Dr. Konikoff, and dental implant surgery will forever be pared in my memory. I am so glad the procedure turned out well. Thanks for the memory! See you all in May for follow-up. Jeff...PS, It was obviously hard for me to sing along (and I can't sing) but at least I got to hum.

Dr. Albert Konikoff began Step 1 for my 1st dental implant by placing a titanium post in the space for poor tooth #30. He did a fantastic job! I even received a much larger chocolate replica of the titanium post to enjoy later!! It is post 1 week and my gums are healing excellently! If you find yourself having to get a dental implant, I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Konikoff and his staff!! On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd rate them 50!!
