What are the different uses for dental implants?

How are dental implants done?

The first step is to extract the problematic or diseased tooth.  We will then assess the bone to ensure that it is strong enough to support and implant.  In some cases, a bone graft may be necessary.  The next step is to surgically placed and implant into the bone.  We then wait for the bone to heal around the implant to ensure strength.  We then have patients come back on subsequent visits to take molds that will be used to fabricate the tooth replacements, called implant crowns.  On the next visit, we mounted the crown to the implant using an abutment.

At Sachar Dental NYC, we take great pride in our dental implants.  Our dental implant specialist is uniquely dual specialized in both prosthodontics and implantology.  Unlike most practices, in our practice, the same person places the implant, the abutment and the crown.  Under these circumstances, the specialist is able to visualize the entire procedure from start to finish.  When he places the implant, he is already visualizing the aesthetics of what it will look like when the crown is placed.


We take great pride in our very high success rate, and our very high patient’s satisfaction with their dental implants.  Experience matters, and we have been doing this for over 20 years at Sachar Dental NYC.  As always, at Sachar Dental NYC, we use the least toxic and the highest quality materials.  We always use the best dental laboratory in New York City, which contributes to our high success and satisfaction rate.


Also, at Sachar Dental NYC, we always opt to perform the least invasive procedures possible.  We do not rush into extractions that result in dental implants.  On many occasions, patients have come in expecting to have a tooth extracted, and we were able to save the tooth.
