Benefits of Dental Implants
When teeth are missing, your appearance and overall dental health are affected. Missing teeth can result in the gums receding, bone loss, movement of the surrounding teeth, a sunken appearance to the face, and difficulty eating and speaking normally. While removable dental appliances, such as partial and full dentures, can be used to replace missing teeth, there are benefits to choosing implants over removable dentures.
Dental implants offer significant advantages for:
- Your appearance
- Eating and speaking normally
- Improved oral health
- Boosting self-confidence
- Maintaining the position of the surrounding teeth
If you want greater stability than can be provided by removable dentures, dental implants in Queens may be the right choice for you. Because implants are made to look, function, and feel like your own natural teeth, they can be the ideal choice for restoring missing teeth.
The Implant Process
Dental implants provide lasting, stable replacements for one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or replacing a full arch of teeth. The dental implant is a titanium post that is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. After the implant has been placed, a period of healing is required to allow the implant to bond and fuse to the jawbone.
When the implant has fully healed, you will return to our office to have your final restoration placed. This may be a replacement tooth that sits on top of a single implant to replace one missing tooth, a dental bridge, or a partial or full denture for implant retained dentures. All restorations are custom-made to fit comfortably and produce natural looking results.
Caring for Dental Implants
You will be given care instructions to follow immediately after the implant procedure and during the healing process. Once your implant has healed, you can care for your dental implants as you would your natural teeth. With proper care, your dental implants and restorations will last a lifetime.
To care for your dental implant, you should:
- Brush your teeth and the implant at least twice a day
- Floss your teeth every day
- Visit the dentist regularly to ensure that your implant is working properly
While dental implants are an excellent choice for many patients, they are not right for everyone. It is necessary to have sufficient bone and healthy tissue to hold the implant in place. The best way to learn if you are a good candidate for Queens dental implant services is to schedule an appointment for a consultation. We will evaluate the health of your gums and jawbone to determine the best way to restore your missing teeth.
