GET YOUR SMILE AND CONFIDENCE BACK!
If you feel embarrassed because of missing teeth or you have lost a few teeth and find it hard to talk or chew, talk to Dr. Philip Pack about the benefits of dental implants. Many denture wearers and those with missing teeth choose this modern solution to restore their smile. Dental implants are a viable, permanent option for replacing one tooth or multiple teeth. Dental implants are the closest thing to your natural teeth. They are designed to look and feel natural so nobody will be able to tell they are artificial. Since dental implants are attached directly to the jaw bone, there is no risk of them slipping or causing irritation. Get your smile and your self-confidence back with a simple, cost-effective and permanent tooth replacement solution.
GETTING DENTAL IMPLANTS
When you have dental implants, you can still floss and brush your teeth like you normally would so there is less risk of gum disease. Maintaining a good oral hygiene routine is still important when you have implants since an infection can cause peri-implantitis which damages the gum and bone tissue supporting the implant.
Dr. Pack is an experienced periodontist and Assistant Attending Periodontist in the Department of Surgery at New York Presbyterian Hospital. He uses guided tissue regeneration to accelerate the healing process and the Cone Beam device for ideal dental implant placement. Our patients appreciate Dr. Pack’s gentler approach handling soft tissue and bone during the implant placement process, and enjoy the fact that they heal quickly.
“Bridges were great for the 20th century, dental implants are for the 21st.” -Dr. Pack

DENTAL IMPLANTS VS. DENTAL BRIDGES
Many patients wonder what advantages dental implants have over more traditional bridges, and we tell patients that dental implants are secured into the jaw bone so there is a lower risk of bone loss. Bridge work typically requires drilling down adjacent healthy teeth to support the bridge. Less drilling means less risk of dental problems.
“Even a few implants attached to a set of dentures can be life changing!”
