Dr. Alvarez has been certified in implant placement, and is a fellow of the Dental Implant Surgical Seminar. Dr. Alvarez has been restoring both simple and complex dental implant cases to create new smiles in Manhattan, New York City, since 1998. Dr. Alvarez has been certified in working with multiple implant systems including Nobel Biocare, Zimmer, 3i, Astratech, Dentsply, Straumann, BioHorizons, Blue Sky Bio, MIS, and many more.
Dr. Alvarez believes that implant placement should not only be done by someone experienced, but also by using the best technology possible.
In our Midtown Manhattan, New York City dental office, dental implants are typically placed using a computer guided proces. Both a 3D Dental CT Scan (CBCT) and an intra-oral digital scan of your teeth and tissues using the iTero scanner are done right in our office. The data is then melded together to create an exact treatment plan of where your dental implants will be placed to give the best possible results. A surgical guide is then 3D printed, which will be used during surgery to place the dental implants exactly where they were planned. Computer guided digital implant placement helps to eliminate almost all the variability in dental implant placement, and will also allow for a faster surgery and with less surgical healing time.
Dental implants are an option for tooth replacement. It is a titanium fixture that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option used for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, trauma, or some other reason and are looking for beautiful new smiles.
Dental implants are an excellent choice for tooth replacement and to help create new smiles.
They can look very natural, and can have a success rate of up to 98%. When a tooth is lost, it can not only affect your appearance and self confidence, it also sets up a domino effect in your mouth. When you lose a tooth, the other teeth in your mouth begin to move to accomodate for that new space, and you will now have teeth that are tilted, crooked, or that have erupted out of their socket. Dental implants also help maintain bone in the area of tooth loss. Without an implant in place, the body will slowly start eating away at the bone, and it will slowly disappear.
