Our skilled Manhattan dentist hates to see patients who are unhappy with their smile, so he provides them with the option of getting dental implants. Dental implants replace lost or severely damaged teeth with an artificial tooth. They look just like your natural teeth and are one of our New York City dentist's most successful procedures.
Dental implants replace lost teeth or severely damaged teeth with an artificial tooth. Implants are the most functional treatment for restoring teeth that a dentist could choose. They are more durable than getting bridges or dentures and permanently correct tooth loss. And even better, they look like your natural teeth. Dental implants are one of the most successful procedures when it comes to dentistry.
A dental implant is a small, strong titanium post that acts like the root of a normal tooth and is placed into the upper or lower jaw bone. After the dentist places the implant into your jaw, it can take several months for your bone to grow around the implant and heal. When this happens, a crown, bridge, or over-denture can be placed on top of the “root” as an implant.
Dental implants might be suggested by the dentist to replace one or several teeth, provide support to a partial denture or full upper/lower denture, enhance comfort when chewing, or improve the aesthetic of your smile.
Many who are missing teeth do not like to smile because they dislike the appearance of their smile. Dental implants are a good way to give confidence back to these people and provide them with a smile that they are proud to show off. When you visit our New York City dental practice, our top Manhattan cosmetic dentist will let you know if dental implants are right for you.
