An Unparalleled Solution for Missing Teeth
Tooth loss causes the jawbone to shrink over time. Dental implants prevent atrophy of the jaw by stimulating the bone tissue. Implants are the only dental treatment capable of stopping bone atrophy after tooth loss.
Implant-supported dentures will never move out of position, so you can eat and speak properly. Meanwhile, the dentures or other restorations attached to your implants will be made from highly realistic materials in our Staten Island practice's very own onsite lab, so you can smile with confidence.

Dental Implant Candidacy
Good Overall Health
In general, candidates must be able to safely undergo the minor procedure involved in placing dental implants. Although autoimmune disorders can affect candidacy, many patients with controlled diabetes are able to receive implants and experience decades of benefits. During your dental consultation, we will provide a careful screening to make certain you can undergo treatment with minimal risks.
Implants require a certain amount of healthy bone tissue for support. Your jawbone tissue will begin to recede after tooth loss. Without prompt treatment, it will eventually become necessary to place a bone graft before you can receive implants. Once your implants are in place, they will provide the stimulation necessary to prevent further bone recession and preserve the integrity of the jaw.
It's no secret that smoking is unhealthy for a number of reasons. However, it can be especially counterintuitive for those who want dental implants because nicotine compromises the body's natural ability to heal. As a result, smokers stand a far greater chance of implant failure. We require that patients stop the habit for a few months prior to receiving implants. Ideally, you should stop for good.
Placing Dental Implants
Offering the Convenience of Same-Day Crowns
Once you are completely healed from your dental implant procedure, Dr. Mormino may be able to provide you with a same-day restoration created in our in-house laboratory during a single appointment. Only two percent of dental practices in the United States have this state-of-the art capability, and ours is the only practice in Staten Island, NY, to offer it.
Using advanced digital scanning technology, a precise impression of your smile will be made. Then our on-site dental artisans will craft your crown while you relax in comfort. This high-quality restoration will be color-matched to your natural teeth so it will blend in seamlessly after Dr. Mormino attaches it to your titanium implant.
Same-day crown benefits include not needing another appointment to replace a missing tooth, no outside lab costs, and if needed, emergency replacement of your implant-supported crown at very little inconvenience to you.

How Much Do Implants Cost?
The cost of implant dentistry varies based on the number of implants you need, the restorations they will support, your choice of dentist, and other factors. Dental insurance rarely contributes to the cost of implants, but most plans will contribute to the cost of your restorations.
Fortunately, Dr. Mormino offers a number of options to help make this life-changing dentistry procedure affordable. Our friendly staff can help arrange a payment plan through two popular third-party lenders: CareCredit® and LendingClub. We also accept all major credit cards. During your dental consultation at our Staten Island office, we can explain these options and help you determine the best way to budget for a restored smile.
More Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
Do dental implants hurt?
You will receive some form of anesthesia during your implant placement to ensure you are completely comfortable during the procedure. However, implant placement is a surgical procedure, so some discomfort while you heal is to be expected. This is usually easily managed at home with over-the-counter medication, pain medication prescribed by your dentist, and ice. It is suggested you eat a soft diet while your jawbone heals. If you experience significant pain, please contact your surgeon or our Staten Island dentistry practice so we can address your discomfort as soon as possible.
Do I really need an implant for a single missing tooth?
Yes. Even a single missing tooth can cause the jawbone to begin to atrophy, which can lead to further tooth loss, a need for bone grafting, and more. By replacing your missing tooth with an implant-supported crown, you can invest in your oral health and prevent more costly dental work in the future.
I suffer from jawbone atrophy. How can I qualify for implants?
Implants require a strong foundation. If you suffer from significant atrophy, you may require bone grafting surgery before you can qualify for dental implants. While this isn't something we perform at our Staten Island, NY, dentistry practice, we work and coordinate with dental surgeons in the local area to ensure you receive the care you need.
I'm allergic or sensitive to metals. Is there an alternative to titanium implants?
Yes. While most implants are made of titanium, some surgeons and dentists can provide ceramic implants as an alternative. It is important that you discuss your allergies and sensitivities with both your dentist and surgeon during your consultations.
