Why choose dental implants over traditional bridges and dentures?
Candidates for Treatment
To qualify for this procedure, it is imperative that you have good oral health, sufficient jawbone strength, and that you do not smoke. Treatment is only safe for patients who are healthy enough to undergo surgery. You should check with your doctor to find out if you are at an increased risk of complications.
Since implants are placed within the jaw, patients need to have the adequate bone density to be successful. If needed, our Nassau County, NY, dentists can offer preliminary procedures such as bone grafting or a sinus lift to prepare your jawbone and restore your candidacy.
Guided Surgery Going Above and Beyond For Our Patients
To ensure the best possible results for our Long Island area patients, our doctors rely on guided implant surgery.
This technique uses 3-D computer technology to predetermine the most accurate location for your implants before we begin the procedure. This helps us prevent malpositioned implants, which could lead to complications and the failure of treatment.
Laser Dentistry Can Aid Your Implant Treatment Contact Us to Get Started
You may have heard that dental lasers can be used for gum treatments and root canals, but did you know that they can improve the dental implant process as well? By using modern laser technology during your implant placement surgery, your dentist can work with greater precision, provide a more comfortable experience, and even expedite healing.
Dr. Howard Golan holds a Mastership Certification from the World Clinical Laser Institute, the world's largest organization for dental laser education. He also leads the Laser Assisted Dentistry Program at North Shore University Hospital, where he supervises training in this state-of-the-art technology.
We can combine the best of laser and implant dentistry to help you achieve optimal outcomes from your treatment. Take the first step towards your new smile by contacting our Nassau County practice online or calling:

Why We Prefer Zirconia Implants
While rare, some people have an allergy or sensitivity to metal, which compromises the success of titanium implants. Zirconia is metal-free and highly biocompatible, meaning there's no risk of an allergic reaction to a zirconia implant post.
For many patients, zirconia dental implants offer greater aesthetic value than titanium implants. Metal implants can be visible near the gum tissue, creating a dark ring along the tooth ridge. Zirconia dental implants are white and don't cause discoloration.
Less Plaque Buildup
Zirconia implants are smoother than titanium implants, so they have fewer grooves and ridges for bacterial plaque to develop in. A 2021 study also showed that they respond better to plaque control and other oral hygiene treatments. This means that your zirconia implants can help reduce the risk of infection during your recovery period and promote better oral health for years to come.
"Incredibly caring and kind staff!" A 5-Star Review For Our Nassau County Practice
They helped me out in so many ways. I used to travel 2 hours each way just to get to their practice because they are so great. Highly recommend Golan! Bryn Taubensee - 2022
Dental Implant Treatment Timeline
We used advanced techniques to increase the success of your implants including PRF treatment.
PRF The Chance for a Smoother Recovery
Our Nassau County dental patients have the opportunity to undergo platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) treatment with their dental implant procedure. PRF uses a combination of the patient’s platelets mixed with cytokines (growth factors) to promote quick soft and hard tissue healing. The techniques can help you heal after implant surgery and can potentially reduce complications.
Two weeks ago I had surgery and preparation for an implant. I had no discomfort or swelling afterward. Their hygienists, assistants, and office staff are superb. Kudos to everyone there!!! Joan Lelis Kosmij
The Cost Of Treatment
Dental implant treatment does require an investment, but most patients feel they are worth it for the superior health and functional benefits they provide. Implant-supported crowns, bridges, and dentures also last longer than traditional restorations and will need fewer replacements over the course of a lifetime.
While basic dental insurance does not cover implants and abutments, you may receive partial coverage for your implant-supported restorations. We do accept dental insurance, and the team at our Nassau County office will gladly work with your provider to help you secure the best possible coverage for your treatment.
Our practice is happy to accept financing through CareCredit®, allowing patients to make affordable monthly payments on their implant treatment.
