If you suffer from missing teeth, there may be a better solution than traditional crowns, bridgework, or dentures. With cosmetic dental implants in the Bronx, you can avoid these other procedures.
Tooth Replacement with No Need for Bridges
For most patients, dental implants are a better way to replace lost teeth. Implants provide artificial teeth that hold up to daily use while looking as natural as the real thing. Full or partial dentures can also be secured with our implant technology.
Dental Implants are Not Right for Everyone
Of course, dental implants are not right for every patient. Since surgery is required, you must be in good overall health with healthy gums, and you must also have adequate bone mass to anchor the implant. Moreover, you must be committed to regular dental visits and a rigorous regimen of oral hygiene. For many patients, the difference between implants and traditional bridge and denture work is night and day.
With dental implants, you can:
- Replace missing teeth easily and securely
- Eliminate awkward partials
- Say goodbye to inconvenient dentures
- Show off a dazzling, natural-looking smile
Bronx New York Dental Implants Look and Feel Natural
For many, many patients, dental implants are the best option for a smile that looks and feels natural. Surgically implanted below the gum line and anchored into the jawbone, our dental implants provide a secure substrate for individual replacement teeth, crowns, bridges or dentures.
Dental Implants Give Unparalleled Stability
By fusing directly into your jawbone, your Bronx dental implants allow for the most stable tooth replacement possible. This makes your crown, bridge or dentures feel as natural and comfortable as possible, giving you a level of confidence you just can’t get from traditional substitutes.
Impeccable Bone and Gum Health is a Must
Successful candidates for this type of procedure must have adequate bone mass and healthy gums in order to support the implant. Our expert cosmetic dentists will give you a comprehensive evaluation to determine if dental implants are right for you.
How Does the Cosmetic Dental Implant Procedure in the Bronx Work?
Since dental implant procedures require careful surgery, your implants may be inserted either in our dental offices or in a hospital?a number of factors must be weighed, and every case is different. You may require a local or a general anesthetic, and pain medications and antibiotics are routinely prescribed. Furthermore, you will be given specific instructions about diet and oral hygiene. Although each procedure is different, generally, the following steps are required.
FIRST: Oral Surgery is performed to anchor the implant into the jaw. This procedure can take up to several hours, and as much as six months may be required in order to allow the bone to grow around the implant and permanently anchor it into place. Depending on the specific type of implant you require, a second surgery may be required to attach the post holding the replacement teeth to the embedded anchor. Other kinds of implants combine these steps and attach the anchor and post at the same time.
SECOND: Artificial teeth are fabricated and fitted to the post after the first surgery; the gums are given several weeks to heal. Once that is accomplished, artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post of the dental implant. Because an exact fit is essential, several fittings may be required to get the new appliance perfectly into place. This can take one to two additional months to complete.
