Dental implants are the state-of-the-art when it comes to the replacement of missing teeth. There are benefits that you get from them that are simply not possible with a fixed bridge or removable partial dentures. Here at Smile Style Contemporary Dental Arts, we are pleased to handle your tooth loss with a solution that looks, feels, and performs like a natural tooth.
There is nothing wrong with older full-tooth restorations, but they have limitations. They are designed to address only the tooth on the surface of your gums. But as we all know, your real teeth have a root beneath that anchors them. Our implant dentist in Croton-on-Hudson NY offers you a new tooth that has a root as part of it. A cylindrical titanium post is surgically placed in your jaw. There is a short waiting period of a few months, which is so that your jaw bone can grow around the post and fuse with it. Once that happens, you have a strong and dependable foundation for the tooth portion of the implant restoration. Our implant dentist in Croton-on-Hudson NY will then take impressions for the crown that will be put on top of the post. That crown will be made out of tooth-colored material for the most natural look possible. It is cemented to the post and that completes your new tooth. Not only is it as good as your other teeth, it may even be better in some ways. Your new implant won’t decay or need root canal treatment. But you can speak, laugh, and chew even the crunchiest, stickiest, and chewiest foods with 100% confidence. And with proper care, an implant can last a lifetime.
Come in to see our implant dentist in Croton-on-Hudson NY for a consultation. Fill that empty space where you used to have a tooth.
