At Queensboro Plaza Dental Care, we make it our mission to stay at the forefront of our field. Dentistry is constantly evolving and we’re committed to utilizing the latest techniques and technology whenever possible. Our patients deserve high-quality, modern care and we can only provide that by staying up to date on the latest advancements. Recently, our team received additional training in sleep apnea therapy and attended an implant overdentures seminar at a Manhattan study club to sharpen our skills and soak in a few best practices. Read on to learn what we took away from the seminar!

What Are Implant Overdentures?

You’ve likely heard of or seen a full arch of dentures, but did you know they can be held securely in place with as little as four dental implants? Dental implants are small, screw-like structures that are surgically placed into your jawbone to serve as either biocompatible replacement tooth roots for dental crowns or anchors for dentures. In this case, the denture will snap onto the implants to prevent slipping, clicking, or falling out.

What Did the Seminar Outline?

In this course specifically, we discussed how to properly explain the benefits of implant overdentures to our patients and how to better incorporate them into our practice. We also went over different types of dentures, how to convert a traditional denture into an overdenture, and how many implants are really necessary to hold a denture in place, as well as tips for planning their placement and using surgery guided by cone beam computed tomography.

How Will We Implement This Into Our Practice?

While we have been providing dental implants for quite some time, we’re grateful for the opportunity to observe other professionals’ techniques and solidify our understanding of this amazing procedure. Our goal now is to further incorporate our learnings into our practice through patient education. After attending this seminar, we feel better equipped to answer all of our patients’ questions and create treatment plans that are truly tailored to your smile needs.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.

Very confident after leaving the office that my teeth are in greatttt hands. Above and beyond patient care. Very informative visits. A sense that they genuinely care about patient concerns. Added helpful guidelines I took home with me to reach dental hygiene goals before my next visits. Highly recommended you leave your old scary dentist ! 😁😁
