Dental ImplantDental implants are an ideal solution for anyone that is tired of dentures and ready to change their life. While most people do not consider the impact that tooth loss will have, teeth play an essential role in the ability to enjoy life without restrictions. Teeth make it possible to speak clearly, smile with confidence and eat all of your favorite foods. Replacing damaged teeth is crucial for the quality of life. However, the way that you replace the teeth also matters.

We treat a lot of patients looking for an alternative to dentures because they are tired of dealing with teeth that feel loose or uncomfortable. For some people, the fear of their dentures coming loose is so high that they no longer dine out with friends or eat in public. If you are in a situation where your dentures are impacting your daily decisions, we highly recommend that you call our office at (914) 594-9128 and schedule an appointment to find out if implants are right for you.

Some benefits of dental implants

Appearance

For anyone who wants replacement teeth that look like natural teeth, implants are the solution. To create new teeth, we will need to make an impression of the patient’s teeth. We will also take measurements and the shading of the teeth using a shade card.

We will send this information to the lab to create dental crowns (new teeth) that look completely natural and blend in with the patient’s surrounding ones. The results are so spectacular that even the patient will have a difficult time telling the difference between the natural teeth and implants.

Functionality

For replacement teeth that function as well as natural teeth, patients need dental implants. The reason that replacement teeth have the same functionality as natural teeth are that we surgically place the implants. In this procedure, we implant a titanium post under the gums and secure it to the jawbone. Titanium is a metal that the body treats like natural matter. Over a few months, the implant and jawbone will fuse together through the process of osseointegration.

As a result, the implant will be as secure and sturdy as a natural tooth. Simultaneously, the implant will provide the jawbone with much-needed stimulation to prevent resorption. When it comes to quality of life, this process allows the patient to bite into a crunchy green apple, chew a big steak, and eat a favorite trail mix without worrying about the teeth.
