An Unparalleled Solution for Missing Teeth
Tooth loss causes the jawbone to shrink over time. Dental implants prevent jawbone atrophy 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 very own onsite lab, so you can smile with confidence.

Tooth Loss Is a Common Problem But It Can Be Treated
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.

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.
