Staten Island Implant Dentistry
NOW, PATIENTS WHO ARE MISSING TEETH HAVE A STRONG AND BEAUTIFUL ALTERNATIVE to bridges, partials, and full dentures.
Implant dentistry will improve your smile and your lifestyle. Dental implants look, feel, and function like natural teeth because of a titanium anchor attached to the jawbone. Dental implants can also anchor bridges, partials, or full dentures to eliminate slipping.
After a thorough evaluation, your Staten Island dentist can tell you whether you’re a candidate for implant dentistry. Dental implants require adequate bone structure for placement. The first stage of the implant dentistry procedure involves oral surgery in which a titanium post is implanted into the jawbone for each missing tooth or for the new teeth that will anchor a bridge or denture. Nature will take its course, allowing your bone tissue to fuse with the titanium post. This creates a solid foundation.
Once the dental implants are secured, your dentist will attach a handcrafted, permanent dental crown to each post. The restorations will match your natural teeth and blend seamlessly with your smile.
By imitating an entire natural tooth, from the root up, dental implants offer a prosthetic that closely mimics nature. The result? Implant dentistry patients enjoy restored function, which allows a healthy diet of hard-to-chew foods. Speech may also improve. Strong and secure, your new smile will boost your confidence, enhance your appearance, and improve your quality of life.
