Here are answers to the most frequently asked questions.
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are a staple of restorative dentistry that uses surgical grade titanium to support a new natural looking tooth to its original form and function, prior to its loss.
What is involved in A Dental Implant Procedure?
Traditional dental implants involve a series of procedures and months of waiting time, sometimes up to a year and a half. In the interim, the patient either goes toothless or must have a small denture (a flipper) made to be able to show their face at work and at social gatherings. The flipper is uncomfortable, causes gum irritation, can not be used for eating and is definitely not a self-esteem builder. Dr. Kappel’s innovative laser implant techniques streamlines the process amazingly. What used to take months, now takes minutes. Dental implants are performed in our Brooklyn, NY office in only two steps. Our team uses 3D imaging to accurately visualize your jaw. With this precise knowledge no cutting and stitching is necessary. Advanced laser technology is used throughout the procedure. Most importantly, the patient walks out with a cemented temporary crown that one can eat on that lasts up to six months.
What would you rather have? A removable flipper or a fixed cemented temporary crown that functions like an interim tooth?
To replace a natural tooth three components come together as a unit. The actual implant mimics the root. The post mimics the prepared portion of the tooth emerging from the gum line. And finally, the crown that mimics the aesthetic tooth completely. These components must fit with the utmost tolerance. We use components from the same companies that produce precision components for Ferrari and Mercedes Benz. Dental implants from Beyond Dentistry Laser Center won’t have you out of commission for days or weeks. You’ll be back on your feet in no time, with a fantastic smile to show for it.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
Traditionally it took months to a year and a half to complete the implant procedure. Dr. Kappel’s innovative procedure does all this and more in one hour. One appointment is used to implant the titanium root. His laser implant procedure completes 90% of the work in that hour. After a few months, you will have your procedure finished when a crown is placed on top of it. Dr. Kappel cuts out waiting time with his revolutionary laser dental implant procedure. He’ll restore your missing or unrestorable tooth in just an hour.
How Long Do Dental Implants Last?
An implant that is well integrated (bone grows around it) is expected to last decades if properly maintained. Implants must be professionally maintained every three months for optimal implant longevity. This is the recommendation of the AAID (American Association of Dental Implants).
Can I Afford Tooth Implants?
At Beyond Dentistry Laser Center, we believe everyone deserves healthy and beautiful teeth. However, it’s no secret that dental implants can be costly. It has to be viewed as an investment rather than a cost. The investment of your tooth implants will vary depending on several factors, including how many implants you need, whether you need a bone graft, and wherein the mouth the implants are being placed. Our Brooklyn, NY staff will be happy to discuss with you our financing options, to make the process affordable to you.
Are Dental Implants Better than Dentures?
Definitely, there is no comparison. Dentures are 19th century technology and our implants are 21st century cutting edge technology. Dentures are notorious for looseness and movement, loss of taste and gum irritation among other disadvantages. To bear this out, more dentures are found in people’s pockets or pocketbooks than in their mouth because they are so uncomfortable to wear.
