At Healthy Smiles, we call ourselves a couple of things. One, we consider ourselves the best implant dentist in Staten Island. Second, we consider ourselves a restorative dentist office rather than a surgical one when it comes to implants. But what does that mean? We're explaining that today.
A restorative dentist does more than simply correct an oral issue. We aim to restore the mouth to its original appearance. We take a backward approach, beginning with what we want the finished product to look like, and then working back to how we'll achieve that final outcome.
For example, we'll place a tooth where it should be in a digital rendering of the patient's mouth. Then, we'll work backward, aligning the post so that it is implanted in such a way that it's anchored into a part of the jaw where we can get the most bone surrounding it. This approach allows us to both correctly seat the tooth and achieve a natural appearance, giving our clients the best of both worlds. Their tooth is secure, their bone is healthy, and their smile is back to what it once was.
By using this method, we get an overall picture of what the finished product and the procedure will look like rather than simply working from the bottom up, positioning the post and then attempting to recreate the tooth.
The benefits of this approach for our clients is two-fold. To begin, they'll walk out of the office with an almost exact replica of their original smile. They'll have an incredibly natural look, which is always important. In addition, they'll have the best possible technical approach to the procedure. The better the bone density surrounding the post, the better it will hold. By working from above and below, we achieve a great aesthetic along with a strong hold that keeps the implant in place and retains bone density in the jaw.
If you're looking for the best implant dentist in Staten Island, we think you've already found what you're looking for. Using our approach of starting with the tooth and working our way backward to the post, we deliver the strongest and most natural looking implants you'll find anywhere.
