What is a Dental Implant?

Implant PostA dental implant is an excellent treatment for replacing missing teeth. A root form implant is the most common kind of dental implant. It is a small, titanium post that replaces the roots of a missing tooth. A custom-fitted artificial tooth, called a restoration (or implant crown), is secured to the implant, which holds the restoration firmly in place.

 

That is a procedure that our dental specialist perform every day here at our Jackson Heights facilities.

 

The Benefits of an Implant

An implant has several benefits. Like the roots of natural teeth, it stimulates the jawbone when you chew. This preserves the jawbone and keeps it healthy. An implant is strong, comfortable, and secure. When the restoration is in place, the implant looks and feels much like natural teeth.

 

With careful homecare and regular check-ups and cleanings here in our office, an implant can be an excellent long-term solution for missing teeth.

 

Single Tooth ImplantHow is an Implant Used?

An implant can support a variety of restorations, such as a single crown, multi-unit bridges, and full arch dentures. Some restorations, like a single crown and most bridges, are not removable. Others, like many full-arch dentures, can be removed for sleeping and cleaning.

 

 

Diagnosis and Treatment

Multi Unit BridgeDepending on the situation, placing an implant involves several phases, and treatment times can widely vary. First we determine if an implant is right for you. We discuss your health history and treatment goals and perform a comprehensive examination to check the health of your gums and jawbone. We determine if you need any additional procedures, such as bone grafting or gum surgery.

 

 

Full Arch ImplantTo begin the procedure, a channel is shaped in the jawbone, and then the implant is placed into the prepared space. At this point, it may be possible to place a temporary restoration. Over the course of the next few months, the implant will become securely fused to the bone. The last step is to attach your beautiful final restoration to the implant.
