Dental Implants

Dental Implants are the standard of care in tooth replacement today. As a top Long Island Implant dentist, Dr. Alex Shvartsman has completed a 2 year Fellowship in Dental Implants and Advanced Prosthetic Dentistry at the prestigious Long Island NSUH-LIJ Dental Program. His advanced training enables him to help many people with complex restorative dental implant procedures. In fact, many local implant surgeons refer many of their patients as well as their family to Dr. Shvartsman to complete the restorative portion of dental implant treatment.

Developed and tested by Dental implant innovating giant: Nobel Biocare. The All-On-Four protocol was developed as an affordable dental bridge option for patients who do not want to wear dentures. In addition it is possible to avoid sinus lift surgery with this protocol.

Many people do not consider dental implants as a means to replace missing teeth because they are afraid of the surgery required to place dental implants.  Their concerns are well justified. Implant surgery can be risky.

A dental implant is a complete tooth root replacement. A titanium cylinder is placed into the jaw using a gentle surgical procedure. Over a period of 2-6 months the metal fuses to the bone and is used to support crowns, bridges or dentures. Dental implants in their current form have been used for over 50 years with success rates over 90%. They are considered by many dentists the standard of care in tooth replacement today and the majority will last a lifetime!

Recently, Zirconium dental implant  called Z-Look3 have been introduced into the U.S. market by a single company.  Patients with metal allergies, or those concerned about metal in their bodies now have a metal free dental implant choice.
