Dental Implants serving Albany, Troy, & Clifton Park, NY
Whether you are missing a tooth or need a tooth replaced, dental implants may be the best solution. At 3 Stone Dentistry & Implants, we specialize in providing you with the best quality implants. This procedure replaces the tooth root with a metal post. Once the jawbone heals, it begins to fuse to the implant. The post will hold an artificial tooth that will look and function just like your real teeth. Our implants will give you the natural feel and performance of real teeth. They will not slide around in your mouth or make noises like dentures might.
The professionals in our Latham, NY office will walk you through each phase of our three-step process:
- We will surgically place an implant into your jawbone. We allow three to six months for your jaw to heal around the implant, at which point it acts like a natural tooth root.
- On a second visit, your dentist will attach an extension, or post, to your implant. Your gum tissue will heal naturally around this post over the next couple of months.
- The implant can now serve as the foundation for a new tooth or dentures. Once we create your crown or denture, it is attached to the implant post, and you are on your way!

Bone Grafting and Socket Grafting
Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that is often used to fix issues with bones and joints following surgery. It is a simple procedure that is crucial to making sure no problems arise following your dental implant surgery. This procedure requires our dentist to “build” bone so that dental implants are able to be placed. Bone tissue is transplanted to ensure that the healing process after your surgery is smooth and your new teeth are secure. Bone grafting is especially important in helping to fix bones that have undergone trauma.
Furthermore, our dentists may need to perform socket grafting following your tooth extraction to ensure proper healing. Following surgery, your tooth socket tends to swell up and shrink, so we must intervene with a socket grafting procedure. To avoid any issues, we will insert a dental implant or fill the hole so that the socket is still able to hold onto your new dental implant and you will not face teeth misalignment or jaw issues in the future.
Although it sounds like a strenuous surgery, our professional staff will make sure that you are properly sedated and comfortable throughout the procedure. We hope that through our bone grafting and socket grafting procedures we will be able to give you the set of teeth that you have been dreaming of. Call today to learn more about this procedure.
