Why Choose Dental Implants?
Implants do more than fill gaps in your smile. Eating and speaking become easier immediately when your lost tooth is replaced by a natural looking dental implant, and as you age this same restorative will help maintain your facial structure through the support it provides surrounding bones. Another clear benefit of having a dental implant is that it can stand alone and does not have to rely on neighboring teeth in order to maintain its position.
Dental implants are ideal for patients missing one, multiple, or all teeth due to an injury, periodontal disease, undeveloped bone matter, or other reasons. Some considerations have to be examined before deciding a dental implant is right for you, starting with an examination of the bone around the area of you soon-to- be tooth. The stem of the implant is a titanium fixture and is placed high into the bones above your teeth; because of this, some patients might require bone grafts to help grow solid material in the area where the implant has to be placed. This process further supports the integrity of your face’s structure while also preparing your mouth for a solid restorative. However, there are situations where our team can help bypass bone grafts via the All-on- 4 or 6 implant procedure available in our Brooklyn dental clinic.
Implant-supported teeth are permanently cemented, and most patients comment that they feel absolutely no different from a natural tooth. Cleaning and maintenance of dental implants require minimal care, and with these restoratives lasting an average of 25 years, you’ll find them to be a worthwhile investment in your health.
