The Manhattan Dentist, Dr. Binder teaches the surgical placement and restoration of dental implants to dentists at New York College of Dentistry continuing education program.
Very few dentists have the dual training and expertise to offer both restoration and replacement procedures. Implants are only as good as the dentistry they support. The end result must be determined before implants are placed.
Comprehensive treatment and planning are required. This includes the review of medical and dental histories, periodontal (gum) health, bone quantity occlusion, TMJ, and facial esthetics.
Photographs, dental models and X-rays are all analyzed first so that there is a clear vision of the final restoration. A CAT scan is often used with a special program (Simplant) to place the implants virtually on a computer. Dr. Binder uses this 3D analysis to determine the exact size and placement of the dental implant before the surgical visit.
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth.
Dental implants serve as the base for many types of tooth replacements. Implants can replace one tooth or several missing teeth with crowns or bridges that are fixed in place. For replacement of many teeth or all of the teeth, implants can support very secure removable dentures. Dental implants allow outstanding results in both appearance and function of replacement teeth.
Bone grafting is a procedure to gain more quantity of bone. If there is a deficiency, bone-forming or -enhancing products can be used during a separate visit or during the implant placement to strengthen the anchor point.
For complex specialty procedures Dr. Binder will recommend a qualified doctor he personally works with.
