Visit Your Pleasantville Dental Implant Specialist, Kenneth Legunn, DMD
As a periodontist, Dr. Legunn’s goal is to help you keep your teeth. For some patients, however, their case of gum disease or tooth decay requires tooth extraction and replacement to keep their smile as healthy as possible. As a restorative treatment option, dental implants are your best choice for oral function and aesthetics. For patients who need teeth extracted and replaced, Dr. Legunn offers implant treatment in Pleasantville, NY.
Dental Implant Placement
Dental implants are surgically placed, which is part of what makes them such strong restorations. The body of a dental implant is a small metal post, which naturally integrates with tissue after it’s placed and has had time to heal. This allows your replacement tooth, or teeth, to look and function more like your natural teeth.
As placing dental implants requires some gum surgery, Dr. Legunn is qualified to place your implants right in his periodontal office. This surgical process is more comfortable than most patients expect; patients who get single implants have the placement completed in less than an hour and can return to work the same day.
Your Options for Implant Treatment
Implants are capable of replacing a whole tooth, from root to crown, and can even be used to anchor dentures and bridges for comprehensive restorative care. For patients who are missing multiple teeth, or who need to have more than one tooth extracted, the posts of the dental implants can support a full or partial plate of dentures, or even a dental bridge.
Because implants are strong and permanent, your new teeth will be as well. Whether you need one tooth replaced, or several, Dr. Legunn offers implant treatment that can help. Dr. Legunn stands behind his approach to quality implant care and helps patients understand all of their options before moving forward with treatment.
