There isn’t any doubt that dental implants are safe, effective, and cosmetically pleasing. The entire process from start to finish takes a few months, and the result is a full-tooth restoration that looks, feels, and functions like a natural tooth does. Here at Cosmopolitan Dental, we’re pleased to offer our patients the most advanced dental care, and that includes replacing missing teeth for you.
Begin with a consultation and examination done by our Grand Central implant dentist to make sure you’re a good candidate. The most important qualification is that your jaw bone needs to be thick enough to hold the implant. If it isn’t, though, bone grafting can be done to correct it. Once you have been deemed to be ready, the first stage of the process is the surgical placement of a titanium post in your jaw by our Grand Central implant dentist. This acts as a new root for your dental implant. Your jaw bone grows around the post, and then fuses with it to provide a strong foundation. You will then have impressions taken that will be used to fashion a tooth-colored crown, which will be cemented to the top of the post. Approximately 98% of dental implants are successful, so you can feel confident that the result will be to your satisfaction. If you’re wondering why an implant is superior to a fixed bridge or partial dentures, the answer lies in the fact that those teeth replacements are only surface solutions. As such, a fixed bridge causes you to lose tooth material in order to anchor it to the neighboring teeth; and partial dentures need messy dental adhesive to keep them in place. An implant has no negative impact on your other teeth, and is 100% dependable without any adhesive required.
