Contact Dr. Shapiro’s East Setauket dental office at (631) 751-4433 if you are missing one or more teeth and would like to learn whether dental implants are right for you.
The dental implant can be the best way to replace a missing tooth. It is also costly. You need to be fully informed before you make a decision on how best to replace missing teeth. We will do a thorough exam, then sit down with you to discuss your options and the costs involved. The implant may – or may not – be the best choice for your situation. We will give you the time and the information so that you can make a decision that is right for you.
Do you have all of your teeth except for the one tooth that is missing? Do you have the needed finances? An implant might be your first choice.
Do you have many missing teeth, and many that are broken or decayed? Are finances a concern? Implants might not be your first choice.
Is a removable denture or partial denture something you can adjust to? Or is it something that is out of the question? What are the implant options that can help stabilize a denture?
Do you have many existing crowns and bridges? Can you live with another bridge to replace the missing tooth? Or do you want the more natural feel of an implant tooth?
These are just some of the questions that need to be answered before an informed decision can be made. We will discuss your needs and your desires. We will develop alternate treatment plans with you so you can understand the pros and cons of each approach. We want you to choose what is right for you and your budget.
