35 years ago after having a tooth removed, a patient had no choice but to get a cemented bridge, removable denture, or to leave the space without a replacement.   An implant can be placed that essentially acts like a root of a tooth. We only work with the finest dentists who are trained to make a restoration that resembles the crown of a tooth. This crown is permanently attached to your implant.

Your restoration will look natural and will give you the confidence to take a hearty bite out of your favorite food, and give an ear to ear smile. Bone levels are preserved since the bone is being stimulated when you are chewing. You can easily floss between your teeth. Your adjacent teeth are not shaved down. The chewing loads are more equally shared, reducing stress on neighboring teeth. Dr. Blyer’s portion of the implant process has a 100% lifetime guarantee. If an implant fails to integrate (which is extremely rare), he will replace it at no charge to you.

Why get your implants at New Generation Oral Surgery Center?

Dental implants are made from titanium metal and are placed in the bone, acting like the root of a tooth. During the healing process, your bone actually fuses with the implant and a tooth is attached permanently to this implant. The success rate on a national level is 95%. dental-implantsDr. Blyer’s success rate surpasses that. Dental implants are a joint project with your dentist placing the crown portion of the implant, and Dr. Blyer placing the root portion of the tooth. This is the gold standard of dental care. Dr. Blyer is a perfectionist and only works with the finest dentists in New York.

We will discuss all of your options and tailor a treatment plan to fit your budget and satisfy your goals. There are many options as to the amount of implants needed. We will create a plan that you, your dentist, and I are all comfortable with. Typically, placing an implant is easier than removing a tooth. People often return to work the same day-many with a tooth already in place.

Dr. Blyer uses the highest quality implants on the market, with the highest success rate of any implant available. He does the majority of his surgeries using minimally invasive techniques, when warranted endoscopically and even without stiches to minimize healing time. Dr. Blyer is trained on all the cutting edge technology in dental implantology, and is aware of the costs of many of these methodologies. We will implement these strategies in order to ensure the success of your case, not frivolously.

Almost everyone is a candidate. If you want an implant, and you have no medical contraindications to getting an implant, Dr Blyer will find a way. Even if you have been told by others that you do not have enough bone to fit an implant, Dr. blyer is knowledgeable and skilled in the latest technology to deliver the results you desire.
Who shouldn’t get an implant? Growing children, or anyone with a radiated jaw bone, or undergoing intravenous bisphophonate therapy.

Without an implant, you may experience:

  • Chewing difficulty
  • Changes in facial appearance
  • Chipping or damage to remaining teeth
  • Changes in your bite Loss of supporting bone in your mouth (because of lack of stimulation)

Options for Missing 1 Tooth or 2 Adjacent Teeth

  • A Bridge

    Teeth on either side of the space have to be ground down to create a bridge. Oftentimes these teeth have nothing wrong with them, and these shaved teeth may need a root canal after drilling the natural protective enamel off of the teeth. Studies have shown only 85% of fixed bridges fail within 10 years. 33% of fixed bridges need to be redone at 15 years. A bridge is less cost-effective than an implant.
  • A Removable Denture

    Missing teeth can be replaced by removable partial dentures. These are prostheses that are attached by clasps to remaining teeth. Aside from an often unattractive appearance of these appliances, they can potentially damage other teeth by putting extra loading forces on remaining teeth. They are sometimes annoying to the tongue. Like anything that is not permamently attached, it can fall out or be misplaced.
    Studies have shown than within 5-7 years, there is up to a 30% failure rate of teeth adjacent to a fixed bridge or removable partial denture.
  • Doing Nothing

    By leaving the space, the bone in area will shrink away and disappear. This is because of the lack of stimulation to the bone where the root of a tooth or an implant would be.
    Adjacent teeth will drift towards the space. Any new spaces will be created and teeth will begin to tilt. Teeth on either side of the space will drift towards the space. Teeth opposing the space on the top or bottom, will drift into the space also (they will supra-erupt) and collapse your bite. At some point the tooth above or below the space may need to be removed if it is not contacting another tooth (whether it be an implant, bridge, partial denture, etc.)

Options for 3 or More Missing Teeth

  • A Bridge

    Teeth on either side of the space have to be ground down to create a bridge. Oftentimes these teeth have nothing wrong with them, shaving these teeth may result in needing root canals after drilling the natural protective enamel off of the teeth.
    Bridges often flex in the middle (where they're unsupported) and risk tilting in adjacent teeth. Studies have shown only 85% of fixed bridges fail within 10 years. 33% of fixed bridges need to be redone at 15 years. A bridge is less-cost effective than an implant.

    Teeth on either side of the space have to be ground down to create a bridge. Oftentimes these teeth have nothing wrong with them, shaving these teeth may result in needing root canals after drilling the natural protective enamel off of the teeth.
    Bridges often flex in the middle (where they're unsupported) and risk tilting in adjacent teeth. Studies have shown only 85% of fixed bridges fail within 10 years. 33% of fixed bridges need to be redone at 15 years. A bridge is less-cost effective than an implant.

If you’re missing all of your teeth, your options to replace the teeth include:

  • Complete Denture

    Full coverage of the roof of your mouth
    Need to use glue
    No sensation on roof of mouth, loss of taste
    Fear of falling out while speaking or eating
    Fear of losing them when they are removed
    If a small ridge is present they do not remain in place very well
    Sore spots on your gums
    Fear of cracking the acrylic
    Can develop fungal infection under denture
    Feel like an "eldakak", old person or babushka
    Eventually the bone supporting the denture will wither away because the stimulation when chewing is not directed to the deeper areas of bone-(where a tooth root or implant sits) only the surface.
  • Doing Nothing

    Do nothing (eat mashed potatoes and don’t smile) You'll have a sunken-in face
    And look unhappy!
  • Implant Non-removable Screw-Attached Option

    This option involves placing a row of teeth, which is attached by screws. Typically, 4-10 implants are needed, and a new denture must be made. All teeth are made with with pink acrylic to simulate gum tissue. Your new row of teeth is placed slightly above real gum tissue to allow cleansablilty, and is attached to the implants with screws that can removed by your dentist.
    With this option, it's easy to clean, and there is no fear of teeth falling out, or misplacing them. Plus, there's no gagging or dislodging with your tongue.
    Drawbacks include: if you give a big smile, people may see the space between your gums and prosthetic gums; for this reason, this option is more popular as a lower prosthesis.
  • Implant Non-removable Cemented Option

    This option involves replacing all your teeth with implants. Typically, 4-10 implants are needed. This is the most natural looking and feeling option; crowns are permanently attached to the implants.
    This option makes it easy to clean, floss, amd chew. Have no fear of teeth falling out, or misplacing dentures or implants. And, there's no gagging or dislodging with your tongue.
  • Prosthesis (Implant Bar)

    This option involves removable prosthesis attached to an implant supported bar. An easy way to give stability to your denture, and popular for a lower or upper denture.
    Typically, 2-6 implants are used depending on bone quality and quantity. A bar is permanently screwed into implants. The denture can be removed to clean, and this method also prevents gagging on an upper denture. It gives dentures a rest stop, to avoid a denture placing pressure directly on the gums.
  • Prosthesis (Snap)

    This option involves removable prosthesis attached to an implant supported bar. An easy way to give stability to your denture, and popular for a lower or upper denture.
    Typically, 2-6 implants are used depending on bone quality and quantity. A bar is permanently screwed into implants. The denture can be removed to clean, and this method also prevents gagging on an upper denture. It gives dentures a rest stop, to avoid a denture placing pressure directly on the gums.

Immediate Implants

Immediate implants that are loaded are best in the front of the mouth. There are certain situations that an immediate implant cannot be placed. Dr. Blyer will review your case and inform you if this popular treatment is a viable possibility for you.
Dr. Blyer has had excellent success placing immediate implants. An immediate implant is an implant that is placed in the extraction socket at the same appointment of the extraction. When a temporary tooth is attached to this implant, it is “loaded”. The long term results of immediate implants are equally as successful as traditional implant placement.

In one visit to New Generation Oral Surgery Surgery Center
  1. The tooth is removed.
  2. The implant is placed.
  3. A temporary tooth is attached to the implant.
This allows you to smile with confidence and function with a tooth upon walking out of our office. While this implant is resting under the surface, the gum tissue around your temporary tooth is healing with the perfect shape to accommodate your permanent restoration which will be placed in a few short months. This temporary tooth takes the place of a temporary removable prosthesis (flipper) which can be lost, can become dislodged while speaking, or whose weak acrylic can break while eating.
