New York City Implant Dentistry

Dental implants from a cosmetic dental office in New York City not only enhance the appearance of your smile; they also improve the overall quality of life. A well-functioning smile is necessary for eating, talking, and other daily activities. When teeth are missing, the gap needs to be filled in to maintain the contour and fullness of a person’s face. Patients missing all of their teeth often have a sunken, older appearance due to bone loss beneath the gums. Implants offer an effective, long-term solution to ensure comfort and appearance.

Dental Implants: What to Expect

The dental implant treatment process uses a prosthetic fixture (often made of titanium) that is placed beneath the gum tissue. The implant is fixed into the bone to create a “virtual root” that is used as the foundation for a crown, bridge, or dentures.

This treatment requires several appointments for completion. After the implant is placed in the jaw bone, the implant site needs to heal for 4 – 6 months. Most patients experience minimal discomfort through this healing time. It is common for people to use temporary dentures during this time to maintain the appearance of their smile.

After the healing time, the top section of the implant is exposed so that the final restoration can be placed in the mouth. If a single tooth is replaced, then a crown is often used for the restoration. When multiple teeth are missing, then the dentist might recommend the use of a bridge or dentures. All restorations are custom designed to ensure a secure, snug fit. Our office has an onsite Periodontist, specializing in gum and bone surgery, who completes the implant work. Then Dr. Braverman places the cosmetic crown to restore the smile.

Even though dental implants require a few months for the treatment, and they are a bit more expensive compared to other dental restorations, the long-term benefits are worth the wait. This permanent restoration creates a natural appearance that functions like the normal tooth. Research is being done to develop a single-visit, one-step implant treatment requiring minimal healing time. Our office will continue to stay up-to-date in the industry as the technology improves over the years.

Are You a Good Candidate for Dental Implants?

The success rate of dental implants is as high as 95%, but you must choose an experienced dental implant specialist in NYC to ensure optimal results for your treatment. An experienced dentist will have knowledge and skills to customize the smallest details of your surgery to improve overall results.

The ideal candidates for dental implants are those with overall good health. Patients should have healthy gums free of periodontal disease. Additionally, it is necessary to have enough jaw bone so the implant can be supported. If you are considering dental implants, it is best to schedule the treatment as soon as possible to minimize the bone loss that occurs when a tooth is missing.
