A dental implant is a replacement for the root, or roots, of a tooth and have a success rate of up to 98%. With a commitment to a good oral hygiene routine and regular dental visits, dental implants can last a lifetime. Our Murray Hill implant dentist, Dr. Garo Nazarian, D.D.S., will explain that all implant patients should also have healthy gums and enough bone to hold the implant. Dr. Nazarian prides himself on giving personal attention and guidance to each patient to help them decide if dental implants are the choice for them.
Much like the roots of a tooth, dental implants are secured in the jawbone and cannot be seen once they are surgically placed. Our Murray Hill implant dentist uses dental implants to secure crowns, bridgework or dentures by a variety of methods. They are made of lightweight, yet strong, titanium, the most widely used metal in both dental and other bone implants. Dental implants also have the highest success rate of any implanted surgical device. Placing dental implants stabilizes your bone and helps to prevent any loss. Along with replacing lost teeth, implants help to maintain the jawbone’s density and shape, supporting the facial skeleton and, indirectly, the soft tissue structures such as gum tissues, cheeks and lips.
There are many advantages to dental implants with the main one being improved appearance, helping you to smile, speak, and look completely natural. Dental implants feel and look like your own teeth and because they are designed to fuse with your bone, they become permanent. Another advantage is improved speech. If dentures fit poorly, teeth often slip inside your mouth, causing you to slur or mumble your words. Dental implants allow you to speak clearly, without the worry of that happening.
