Restore your smile back to its complete state again with implants from us at A Plus Dental, PC. Sure, you could opt for a bridge or dentures, but if you want the benefits of advanced full-tooth restoration without the drawbacks of those more traditional choices, implants from our Coney Island dentist are the only way to get them.
What give dental implants such a big advantage? First, it is a two-part system, replacing both the tooth that has been lost and the root beneath it that is also gone. So while it is a cosmetic process, it is also a practical one. Your natural facial contours are preserved, vital gum and bone tissue where the root used to be will not atrophy, and you have a stable and reliable base for your new tooth. Second, your other teeth are not affected, unlike with a fixed bridge where the two neighboring teeth have to be drilled down to place anchors. Third, you won't have to use any messy dental adhesive as is the case with dentures. Tooth loss can be frustrating. You feel awkward about smiling. If the teeth are in the back, your ability to chew becomes less efficient. And your other teeth can shift, leading to discomfort. Our Coney Island dentist will surgically place a titanium post, the root replacement, in your jaw, which your bone tissue will grow around and fuse with over the next few months. After that, a tooth-colored crown that is made just to fit you will be put on top of the post and cemented to it for permanence. You will be able to speak, laugh, smile, and chew even the toughest foods.
With proper care, you can get a lifetime of use out of implants from our Coney Island dentist. Contact our office and let us get you started.
