Another Leap Forward in Dental Healing: Implant Teeth

Submitted by Integrative Dental Specialists

Ensuring the longevity of your natural teeth should always stand as the primary goal for both patients and dentists alike. Regrettably, there are instances where dental damage reaches a point where extractions become the sole recourse. Traditionally, dentures stood as the sole recourse for patients seeking to restore their smiles. However, what many are unaware of is that dentures offer less than 10 percent of the biting efficiency of natural teeth. Adding to the concern, dentures often shift within the mouth, necessitating regular removal for cleaning. Yet, in today’s dental landscape, the options extend far beyond dentures alone. Dr. Jeffrey Etess has been a pioneering figure in full mouth dental implants for over 23 years in Manhattan and Long Island. Amidst the proliferation of “dental implant centers,” it’s vital to exercise caution. While many of these dentists may possess commendable qualifications, their tenure is often brief at these “implant centers”. When it comes to dental procedures, reliability is paramount. With Dr. Etess, you can trust in his enduring commitment to addressing all your dental needs, ensuring peace of mind and lasting satisfaction.

Full arch implant surgery represents a comprehensive dental intervention aimed at replacing all teeth in either the upper and or lower jaw with dental implants, commonly referred to as the All-on-X implant procedure. Throughout this procedure, Dr. Etess strategically implants four or more dental fixtures into the jawbone, serving as the bedrock for a new set of prosthetic all-ceramic teeth. These implants are crafted from materials such as titanium alloy, zirconia ceramic, or a hybrid blend of titanium and zirconium. The choice of implant material is tailored to meet the specific needs and preferences of each patient, ensuring the selection of the most biocompatible option. This meticulous selection guarantees the seamless fusion of the implant with the jawbone, establishing a secure and stable foundation for prosthetic teeth that not only appear natural but also function flawlessly.

Dr. Etess conducts a comprehensive examination to ascertain the patient’s candidacy for the procedure. This evaluation entails a meticulous review of the patient’s dental and medical history, complemented by traditional X-rays, CT scans, and the utilization of state-of-the-art 3D intraoral photogrammetry. This advanced technology provides a detailed assessment of the existing jawbone condition, ensuring a thorough understanding of the patient’s unique anatomical considerations. Subsequently, Dr. Etess formulates a tailored treatment plan meticulously crafted around the patient’s specific dental wants and needs. This often incorporates cutting-edge computer-guided technology to meticulously plot the optimal placement of dental implants and design a flawless set of prosthetic teeth. While the procedure typically proceeds under local anesthesia administered by Dr. Etess, some individuals may opt for or require sedation, expertly administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. This ensures enhanced comfort and tranquility during the procedure. The dental implants are then precisely positioned into the jawbone, seamlessly accompanied by the attachment of a temporary set of prosthetic teeth on the very same day. Full arch implant surgery emerges as an exceptionally effective and enduring solution for individuals grappling with substantial tooth loss. With diligent care and upkeep, these implants boast an impressive lifespan spanning decades, furnishing patients with a natural-looking, fully functional set of teeth that markedly enhances their overall quality of life.
