Dental implants are today’s premier missing teeth replacement option, and it’s no wonder—they can restore your quality of life and even help you enjoy a whole new level of personal fulfillment. As life-changing as they can be, the success of dental implants lies in proper placement. With the help of advanced computer technology, the doctors here at South Shore Long Island Periodontics & Implantology are able to extensively pre-plan and perform guided implant surgery to ensure the accuracy, efficiency, and stability of placement. This enables us to provide more predictable—and outstanding—results for you. What’s more, we can place them in just one visit to our Wantagh, NY office.
Guided full arch replacement - peace of mind in precision!
CHROME GuidedSMILE™ and the Guided Implant Surgery Procedure
We start your journey to a new smile by performing a CT scan and taking digital impressions of your teeth and gums. We also do a smile analysis and facial profiles that show us precisely where your new teeth will go during guided implant surgery. Using all this data, our partner lab develops your final implant prosthesis, a temporary (provisional) prosthesis, as well as a surgical guide, a template that we place over your gums for precise implant placement—an advantage offered by the CHROME GuidedSMILE™ system. This is customized to the specifications of your mouth, which we capture at the initial imaging stage. During surgery, we perform any tooth extractions and bone grafting before inserting the implant posts in your jaw through the surgical guide. We then immediately fit you with a fully functional provisional prosthesis, which you’ll wear comfortably while your implant post sites heal. (Most Long Island practices provide these the next day, leaving you toothless for 24 hours!) Later, you’ll return to our office for your permanent prosthesis—and begin to fully enjoy life with dental implants.

The Professionals Behind the Procedure
Our team of doctors is compromised of three board-certified periodontists who have almost 80 years of combined experience. In fact, we’ve placed more than 10,000 implants since 1986, when the technology was introduced. Each has undergone up to four years of specialty training beyond dental school, with dental implants as an area of focus. Guided implant surgery technology combined with extensive training makes South Shore Long Island Periodontics & Implantology the top practice for dental implants in Wantagh, NY. We hope to see you here very soon.
