Missing, extracted or damaged teeth can be bothersome. They can cause oral health problems and affect your self-esteem. Fortunately, we offer several restorative options at our dentistry. Dental implants are one of the best ways to replace a missing tooth and restore your smile. Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that are rooted to your jawbone for a secure fit. They are custom designed to blend in with the natural appearance of your smile and offer several benefits over other dental restoratives:
- · Security – there is no need to worry about your implant slipping or sliding out of place.
- · Natural feel – since they are rooted directly to your jawbone, they feel just like the rest of your natural teeth.
- · Ease of maintenance – you care for your new implant just as you would your natural teeth.
- · Cosmetically appealing – each implant is custom designed to match the shade and texture of your smile and is nearly indistinguishable from the rest of your smile.
- · Improved oral health – when you replace missing or damaged teeth, you prevent a number of periodontal health problems from affecting your smile.
If you are interested in restoring your smile with dental implants, we encourage you to contact our office. We look forward to helping you find confidence and health in your smile.

We are committed to providing our patients with expert care for all of their dental needs. That is why we maintain bone grafting capabilities at our dental practice. Bone grafting is an excellent option for patients who need to build and strengthen their jawbones to fully support dental implants or other tooth prosthetics. Since bone grafting is a surgical process, our Family Dental Rego Park patients gain peace of mind in knowing they can complete this procedure in a comfortable and trusting environment.
The bone grafting process begins by collecting a bone sample from another part of the jaw or body. In some cases, cadaver bone fragments that are donated to bone banks can also be used for grafting purposes. The bone sample is then used to patch and strengthen the future site of the prosthetic. The bone graft will naturally heal and become part of your jaw, providing you with a strong and stable base for an implant or other restorative.
If you have been seeking dental implants in the Rego Park, NY area, but have been told your jaw may not be able to support the implant, contact us here at Family Dental Rego Park. We are happy to provide patients with consultations and to discuss our bone grafting capabilities.

We are told from a young age the importance of brushing and flossing our teeth on a daily basis. When we care for our teeth, we can prevent serious health problems and periodontal disease. While most of us are familiar with the positive effects this can have for our smile, many don’t know that our oral health has a big effect on our overall health, too.
Oral systemic health is the connection between your periodontal health and your overall health. When you suffer from periodontal diseases like gum disease and periodontitis, your cardiovascular and neurological health may also be at risk. Gum disease is increasingly linked to stroke, heart disease, increased blood pressure, diabetes, and even the presence of certain cancers. With twice daily brushing and flossing, in addition to biannual dental cleanings, you can prevent plaque buildup and keep your smile free of tooth decay. When your teeth are healthy, you can avoid oral problems like tooth loss, infection, jaw misalignment, in addition to various life threatening conditions.
We want to make sure that all of our patients remain happy and healthy. If you are due for your six month dental cleaning, we encourage you to schedule an appointment at our practice. With good oral care habits you can maintain your smile and your health.
