Biocompatible Dental Implants in Yorktown Heights, NY

Smile, Eat, & Speak With Complete & Total Confidence

Are you missing one or more teeth and would like to smile, speak, and eat again with comfort and confidence? Maybe your dentures don’t feel secure. Perhaps you have difficulty chewing. We have good news! Dental implants in Yorktown Heights, NY can provide you with new teeth that look and feel just like your own.

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth, bridge or denture. Dental implants are an ideal option for people in good health who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or for some other reason.

Under proper conditions, dental implants can last a lifetime. In fact, dental implants are so natural-looking and feeling, you may forget you ever lost a tooth.

Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Replace one or more teeth without affecting bordering teeth.
  • Support a bridge and eliminate the need for a removable partial denture.
  • Provide support for a denture, making it more secure and comfortable.
  • Create a more youthful appearance. Increase your confidence.
  • Allow you to eat whatever you like.

What Are Implants Made of?

Initially, implants were all made of pure titanium but today that is no longer the case. Many implants used today are made of titanium mixed with aluminum and vanadium. While they are cheaper, cheaper is rarely better. When we screen for biocompatibility, we find that most people are sensitive to these cheaper titanium alloys, which is why we favor implants manufactured in Europe where standards for biocompatibility are more stringent.

In this video, Dr. Lerner shares the shortcomings of dentures from years ago and how advanced implants of today are a much healthier and functional solution.

Benefits of Pure Titanium Implants

  • We have a long track record of results.
  • Titanium implants are made in two parts. The part that goes below the gum can be covered when the implant is placed to provide undisturbed healing. The part that goes above the gum to hold the tooth can be screwed into place later and the shape is readily customized to adapt to the requirements of the bite or for cosmetics.
  • Pure titanium is one of the most biocompatible metals with long use in orthopedic medicine.
  • Titanium implants encourage an intimate adhesion of bone around them which makes them suitable for the long term replacement of teeth.
  • For some time, we used only pure titanium implants because we found that most patients are not sensitive to pure titanium. Now we are able to offer implants that are metal-free made of a material called Zirconia.

Benefits of Metal-Free Zirconia Implants

  • Zirconia has become popular as a desirable implant material because it interacts well with the natural gum and bone, making it biocompatible.
  • Metal-free implants are biological dental implants, meaning they’re a more holistic option for those interested in treatments that support total health.
  • For cosmetic reasons, zirconia is a better choice. Titanium dental implants may cause a dark line around the gum. Zirconia is a more natural color, eliminating this effect.
  • When it comes to dental hygiene, zirconia is favored by many periodontists because it discourages the buildup of plaque and tartar in a way that titanium does not. That means less risk of gum disease in the future.
  • Because of the increased interest in holistic dentistry and metal-free treatments, zirconia dental implants are gaining in popularity. For patients who suffer from sensitivity to titanium, metal-free dental implants offer an excellent alternative.

"I can’t thank Dr. Lerner and his staff enough, notably his assistant Nicole for expertly handling my mercury filling removals.I had it done in 2 phases and they took very good care of me on both occasions. The whole office is very pleasant, so professional and I look forward to my visits. On this most recent cleaning appointment, Linda did my cleaning. She was gentle and thorough. Highly recommend."

"Excellent experience during my initial consultation. The most complete examination I have ever had by a dentist, including full body muscle testing. This testing uncovered major alignment issues with my jaw which has been causing a lifetime of misalignment throughout the rest of my body. Dr. Lerner and his staff are outside the box thinkers and I am very happy I have found them."
