Patient Testimonials

  • "Northport Family Dental provides a very welcoming and professional staff with state of the art technology at their fingertips. On my very first visit as a new patient I was made to feel welcome and comfortable in the clean, pleasant and organized waiting area and treatment room."

  • "This was my first visit and I was immediately impressed by the facility and the professionalism of the staff. I was further impressed by the attention to detail, explanations and information given by the Doctor about the available treatments and my options. Dental treatment is not high on my list of things I look forward to but this was a rewarding and relatively painless experience."

  • "My family and I have been going to Northport Dental for the past 20 years and we love it. Dr. Rubin is awesome and his staff of hygienists, assistants and administrators are all so nice and caring and professional. Dr. Rubin's office is total state of the art - with all the latest high-tech equipment and comfortable atmosphere. We've recommended this office to many friends who are all very happy."

  • "The staff was terrific...very friendly and welcoming. Everything went like clockwork. I can't think of an experience with a dentist that was as reassuring. Doctor Rubin was really something. He was approachable and easy to converse with. The technology and expertise was something to behold."

Can I have a tooth the same day that my Implant is placed?

An “immediate” temporary crown is an option and is given ample consideration whenever the site in question is visible. The most important factors we consider are whether or not we can achieve a high degree of initial stabilization of the implant and if there is an above average amount of supportive bone.Dental Implants | Northport NY Dentist

The patient is instructed to avoid chewing on the temporary and the temporary itself is always made a little shorter than what the actual tooth will be so as to avoid any contact with the opposing teeth. This is necessary to avoid overstressing the implant while the process of osseointegration (fusing to bone) is taking place. Micromovement will cause a lack of osseointegration and potential early failure.  

If conditions are not favorable, we recommend not placing a temporary in areas that are not esthetically critical. Where esthetics are a concern, we can discuss the best option that applies to your individual situation.  We want to ensure clinical success in the long term as well as make the transitional period of healing as uneventful as possible.
