What Holistic Options Do I Have?

Non-Metal Implants

Long Island dental implants made with ceramic instead of metal, available at the Farber Center in Medford NY and Hauppauge NYWe offer a variety of options for dental implants including non-metallic dental implants. These implants are made from zirconia, a type of ceramic.

Correspondingly, there are many benefits of getting a non-metal implant, such as:

  • It is a holistic approach that uses no metal
  • Looks and feels like real teeth
  • The material is very strong, naturally occurring substance
  • They are biocompatible, which means they are not harmful to living tissue
  • They resist inflammation
  • Studies show ceramics reduce incidents of plaque

Holistic Surgery

Long Island laser gum surgery with the LANAP, LAPIP and LAR advanced dental laser techniques. Visit the Farber Center for Periodontics and Dental Implants in Hauppauge and Medford NY.Another recent development in periodontal treatment is the use of the laser to regenerate bone without scalpels or sutures. Utilizing the body’s own natural ability to “heal itself”, Dr. Farber utilizes the PerioLase™ for the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP™).

Ultimately, LANAP™ creates an environment for regeneration of the tissues around your teeth lost due to periodontal disease.

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF)

Often when a patient is in the first stages of their dental implant journey they must first undergo a sinus-lift procedure. In the case of Sinus Lift surgery, Farber Center utilizes PRF as a holistic solution to regenerating bone. These materials help stabilize the dental implants while the graft materials, naturally replaced by your own bone, grow into the area.

Farber Center constantly makes strides to offer the best holistic dental options for your oral health.
