At Smile Style Contemporary Dental Arts, we specialize in helping patients who need dental implants. Implants are a great way to replace teeth and have a full set of teeth. They can help balance facial aesthetics and allow patients to chew and talk normally where before they may not have been able to. To be a candidate for implants Croton-on-Hudson NY, you must be in good dental health and have sufficient gum to place the implant. Without proper bone room, the implants won’t have a place to fit. The implant will need to fuse over the bone so that the tooth can be anchored as a permanent base.
If there is not enough bone for the implant, a bone graft may be performed. In a bone graft procedure donor bone is grafted onto the jaw so the implants Croton-on-Hudson NY have a place to fit into it. Patients should also be in good oral health That is, no current history of smoking or alcohol and no diabetes or gum disease. Patients with gum or tooth problems may end up having trouble with the implant and a lower success rate in the healing process. Periodontal disease should also be as non-existent as possible. Any issues with gum or bone health can delay the healing process and cause the implant to fail.
Daily brushing and flossing is the best way to keep your dental implants healthy and preserved for as long as possible. Implants never need a root canal or filling again. They can last a lifetime if they are taken care of properly and good oral hygiene followed.
