Restoring Smiles With Dental Implants
If you are worried about your smile, are missing a few teeth, don’t want to get a bridge done or may have trouble chewing due to loss of teeth then the time may have come for you to consider dental implants. Dental Implants have revolutionized how people smile and live as millions of Americans each year choose to have dental implants.
The most common form of dental implants is single tooth replacement, but we also do multiple tooth replacements at our Bayside, NY office. This is performed using a process known as osseo-integration, whereby titanium becomes fused to the bone. The dentist places the dental implant on the lower or upper jaw. In some instances the dentist may place multiple dental implants, placing small titanium screws into the bone.
We also have the ability to give the patient a bridge using dental implants. This bridge is a restorative bridge used to replace many missing teeth. There are two types: fixed partial dentures and removable partial dentures. Fixed bridges are cemented in and cannot be removed. Partial dentures can be removed at night for cleaning. The bridges can drastically improve a patients smile with the materials that are used are made to match the color of your teeth.
With dental implants, the procedure is performed at our Bayside Dental office and patients must commit to a healthy oral regimen afterward. They normally have a healing phase of 6 weeks to 3 months before the crown is placed over the titanium abutment.
