At Premier Endodontics of Long Island, we firmly believe that it is always best to save a natural tooth. However, in some cases injury or decay may be so extreme that we have no alternative but to extract the tooth.
In these cases, we will replace the missing tooth with an implant. Implants not only restore your natural smile, they help maintain the health of adjacent teeth and prevent bone deterioration.
Modern dental implants look and function much like real teeth, and are preferable to treatments such as dentures and bridges because they fit better, are easier to clean and do not affect adjacent teeth.
