If you have experienced tooth loss, you may already be thinking about getting dental implants. Dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement option because they look, feel, and function just like regular teeth. If you have missing teeth you can get dental implants at our Cosmopolitan Dental office. At our dental office in Midtown you will be seen by one of our expert dentists, either Dr. Garo Nazarian or Dr. Doyoon Kim.
When you have missing teeth it is very important to have them replaced so that adjacent teeth do not move over to fill in the gap left by the missing teeth. Additionally, the jawbone will atrophy due to the fact that there is a missing tooth root. However, when you get dental implants at our dental office in Midtown both problems will be taken care of. A dental implant is comprised of two parts; there is the lower titanium dental implant root and the upper porcelain crown. Once our dentist determines that you are a good candidate for the procedure, one titanium dental implant root will be surgically inserted into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. There will be a healing period of several months during which time your jawbone will fully heal and the dental implant root, or roots, will completely fuse to the jawbone. Once all healing has completed, porcelain crowns will be created to replace the missing teeth, which will perfectly color-match the adjacent teeth. The crowns will then be permanently attached to the top of the secure dental implant roots, and your dental implants will be complete. This is a very exciting way to treat tooth loss because if well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and with periodic dental cleanings, the dental implants should last a lifetime. This means that you will continue to have a beautifully restored smile, and be able to always eat and smile in total confidence.
