Our New York Dental Implants team includes 16 cosmetic dentists, specialists (including two oral surgeons) and lab ceramists in one high-end office. In addition an MD-anesthesiologist offers several options for dental sedation. We offer intelligent and honest diagnosis based upon 35 years of experience in implant dentistry. In summary our treatment is quick and comfortable. Therefore we also use the finest materials and top labs.
The Implant Dentistry seen in these before and after photos was performed in our NYC dental implants office. In addition our patients also have access to our affiliated team of 12 medical doctors in our building. Singularly The Center for Special Dentistry® has a complete team.
Our New York Dental Implants pictures show how the two parts of the dental implant connect at the gum
Second stage dental implant abutment connections. The six dental implants in this jaw have already healed and are just below the gum. (Part 2 of 4: Abutment parallelism). 1) Note the lack of parallelism. 2) In this photo a screwdriver is used to hold a second stage abutment. Notice the angle prepared extra orally to begin creating parallelism. 3) and 4) You can see in these pictures how the preparation in 2) is beginning to create parallelism but there is still more work to do. It is better to do the majority of this preparation extra orally because of heat generation.
Dentists must keep track of the orientation of each second stage dental implant abutment when they are handled. Minor preparation of the abutments may be accomplished intraorally with light pressure and lots of water irrigation. In brief these pictures how show to place dental implant abutments.
Taking an impression of Dental Implants
Taking an impression of two upper left dental implants for porcelain a dental bridge.
1) The impression tray with a cut-out for impression copings. 2) Then the fit of the impression tray is tested over the two implants intraorally. 3) Next is the actual impression. Note the implant impression screws just peaking through the impression material. 4) Lastly the impression contains the impression copings.

X-rays of Dental Implants

We work with local master craftsmen
Metal framework try-in of a three unit porcelain-metal teeth bridge over two upper left dental implants. In this case extra oral pictures show the master model and the dental implant framework.
A metal frame of a bridge is fitted on top of New York Dental Implants
As an example the metal framework try-in of a three unit porcelain-metal dental bridge is shown over two upper left dental implants. Namely the working model shows the dental implant abutments.
All the teeth behind the canine tooth are part of the porcelain dental implant bridge
This is the final picture of the porcelain bridge as it is initially seated on the dental implants. In this case a maxillary left posterior three unit porcelain-metal dental bridge is placed over two dental implants.
A Definition of Words used for Dental Implants
The words, crown and cap, mean the same thing; a dental crown and tooth crown also mean the same thing. Ordinarily a fixed dental bridge, or bridgework, typically means more than one crown that they are connected together as one piece. Furthermore the word fixed typically means permanently cemented and not removable by the patient. Lastly some patients incorrectly refer to their removable denture as a bridge.

A Subperiosteal Dental Implant
In this case these pictures and an occlusal X-ray show a subperiosteal dental implant.
In this case visit our affiliated website, LinkowLibrary.org, for more information of the history of oral implantology, i.e. dental implants.
How to reline an acrylic dental implant denture or prosthesis
First a small amount of acrylic is removed from that portion of the underside of the implant denture that fits on the dental implants.
In this case a loose mix of Duralay was used to reline this acrylic dental implant prosthesis. It was placed over the implant abutments and removed periodically as it hardened. By the way, one must be careful not to accidentally allow the acrylic to completely harden and permanently lock onto the implants. Usually a friction fit provides sufficient retention. Lastly, the excess acrylic should be removed after the Duralay hardens.
Second stage dental implant abutment connections
Our New York Dental Implants team includes lab technicians who come to our office when necessary
Second stage New York dental implant abutment connections. The six dental implants in this jaw have already healed and are just below the gum. (Part 4 of 4: The final prosthesis). Furthermore this final prosthesis is acrylic fused to titanium. Note in 2) that occlusal openings in the titanium will allow easy access to the second stage screws if necessary. 3) The inserted prosthesis with the upper lip pulled back. 4) Finally the inserted prosthesis with a normal lip position.
Use Telescopic Copings or Telescopes with Dental Implants
In this case the photos show retrofitting a new telescopic dental coping under a porcelain-metal bridge that is supported by implants and teeth.
Incidentally our New York Dental Implants practice has 35+ years experience with complex implant dentistry.
