Dental Implants - Brooklyn
Teeth greatly affect certain activities in everyday life such as eating, speaking, laughing, smiling and so on. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, you may feel embarrassed and avoid smiling fully to conceal your missing teeth. You may also have of eating.
So what can you do about this? There are some options, the best one being dental implants;other options include dentures and bridges. Dentures are removable false teeth, while dental bridges are false teeth held in place on either side by your real teeth. Lastly, dental implants are man-made replacement tooth roots placed in your jawbone; they bond with your jawbone. Artificial teeth are attached once the artificial roots have merged with your jawbone.
Let’s take a look at dental implants and see what benefits they have over dentures and bridges.
First of all, dental implants are stronger and more stable than dentures and bridges. This is because they are man-made roots and surgically inserted into the jawbone, so just like real teeth, artificial teeth are connected with dental implants that are attached to your jawbone, make them stable and strong. An individual with dental implants can eat normal foods just like they would with their own teeth. Another benefit of dental implants is the aesthetic aspect.
Dental implants are the closest you can get to the natural teeth. Their appearance is just like real teeth and they feel like natural teeth as well. Moreover, they won’t slip or move like dentures when you talk or eat as they fix firmly to your jawbone. If you opt for bridges, your natural teeth on both sides of the bridge will need alteration to make the bridge fit in place. Dental implants last much longer than other options - often for a lifetime. Still, you need to talk to your dentist and discuss whether dental implants are the best option for you before making a decision.
If you are someone who is missing a tooth or teeth, then why not consider an option that does not involve bridges, partial, or full dentures? At Brooklyn City Dental we can restore your smile and make sure that you still maintain an active lifestyle. Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth. This is because of the titanium anchor that attaches to the patient's jawbone; it acts like a root and has a crown placed on top that looks like a real tooth. Your teeth will look natural – nobody needs to know that you have dental implants.
The Dental Implant Process
After the dentist and oral surgeon at Brooklyn city Dental give you a thorough evaluation, they will inform you on whether you're a good candidate for implants. To have dental implants placed, you need adequate bone structure; otherwise, you may require a bone graft. Your oral surgeon will inform you so you can decide whether to go ahead with the procedure.
The first stage for placing a dental implant involves oral surgery. During the surgery, a titanium post is implanted into the patient's jawbone in the area of the missing tooth. This implant acts as an anchor for a crown. Over time, a process known as osseo-integration takes place, meaning the titanium fuses to the bone. Once this is accomplished, the dentist attaches a customized, permanent crown to the post. The color of the restorations will match your natural teeth making the crown unnoticeable.
The patient can enjoy restored function as a result of the implant. This makes for and improved speech, and self-confidence, and easier to follow a healthy diet.
How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?
Dental implants are stronger and more long-lasting than other options. This is because they are man-made roots surgically attached into the jawbone. This makes chewing foods as easy as if you had all your natural teeth. Dental implant placement should cost around $1800 - $2100.
