NYC Implant Dentistry

Dental implants have revolutionized the field of restorative dentistry, allowing patients to reclaim the smiles they once had using natural-looking prosthetic teeth. Millions of Americans have one or more teeth missing, and the likelihood of tooth loss only increases with age. Missing teeth can be a source of insecurity and embarrassment, and their absence can also lead to further complications, such as the shifting of remaining teeth or difficulty chewing and talking. By using dental implants to replace missing or deteriorated teeth, patients can regain self-confidence and experience life as was possible when teeth were healthy and natural.

What are Dental Implants?

dental implant NYCDental implants are an alternative to traditional prosthetic products, such as dentures and bridges. Unlike those restorations, which are removable dental appliances, an implant is permanently fixed within the mouth using a titanium rod embedded within the bone where natural teeth once were. Over time, this rod adheres to the bone, and a plastic or porcelain cap is secured to the rod along the gum line. The result is a beautiful, healthy-looking smile custom designed for its wearer.

Implant dentistry is used for both cosmetic and restorative dentistry. Most often, patients who undergo implant dentistry need to replace one or more missing teeth. In some cases, a complete new set of teeth are replaced for consistency and functionality. Although many patients undergo implant dentistry every year, all must first submit to a thorough examination of the mouth, gums, maxillofacial bones and remaining tooth structure. Patients must have enough bone to support dental implants; although those with deteriorated bone may become eligible for implant dentistry by undergoing a bone grafting procedure.
