How Dental Implants Work

Dental implants are the more natural tooth replacement. The dentists at Upper East Smiles in the Upper East Side in NYC know dental implants, and you may want to consider requesting a consult to see if you are a good candidate for implants.

Why should I choose dental implants?

Dental implants are the most natural choice for tooth replacement because they are attached directly to the jaw bone. The implanted tooth looks like a small screw and serves as the artificial replacement for the root of your missing or damaged tooth. In addition, the implants themselves are made of titanium or other materials that do not cause an adverse reaction when attached to your gums and jaw bone.

Once implanted, the bone bonds with the post of the implant, forming a sturdy foundation. Finally, a prosthetic crown is placed on the implant that functions, looks, and feels like a natural tooth.

What to know about dental implants

Dental implants are state-of-the-art technology that researchers have been perfecting since the early 1980s. When you choose the dentists at Upper East Smiles in the Upper East Side, NYC, for dental implants, you know you are receiving the care needed for your implants to last your lifetime. Routine check-ups and good oral hygiene are all that are required to maintain dental implants. Dentures require frequent cleaning and may need replacement every 5 to 10 years leading to more out-of-pocket costs over time.

When you come into the office for your consultation, the dentist uses 3D imaging technology to ensure a precise fit leading to comfort and stability. On the other hand, dentures are often ill-fitted or wear down on your jaw bone with time leading to discomfort and bone loss.
