In Yonkers and Bronxville Replaces Missing Teeth

Implant DentistryMissing teeth can negatively impact a person’s self esteem, causing them to hide their smile.  With advancements in dentistry, missing teeth can easily be replaced with dental implants—artificial tooth roots.  Previously, the only treatments available for people with missing teeth were bridges and dentures.  Today, the use of dental implants can successfully replace a single tooth, or multiple teeth.

Understanding the Process

The first step in the implant process is the development of an individualized treatment plan.  Your treatment plan will address your specific needs and is prepared by a team of professionals who are specially trained and experienced in oral surgery and restorative dentistry.  Once a treatment plan is created, your implant will be placed into the bone socket of the missing tooth.  As your jawbone heals, it grows around the implanted metal post, anchoring it securely in the jaw, which can take anywhere from six to 12 weeks to heal.

Once the implant has bonded to the jawbone, a small connector post—called an abutment—is attached to the post to securely hold the new tooth.  To make the new tooth, or teeth, your dentist will make impressions in order to create a model of your bite.  The new tooth, or teeth, will be based on this model.  The final step will consist of the placement of a crown for a natural appearance. 

Experience the Benefits

Utilizing dental implants for the replacement of your missing teeth poses many advantages:

  • Improved appearance
  • Improved speech
  • Increased comfort
  • Eliminates the need for reduction of nearby teeth
  • Improvement in long-term oral health
  • Supporting loose dentures

It is important to have healthy gums and enough bone to hold your dental implant. It is also important to be committed to good oral hygiene in addition to regular dental visits.  Heavy smokers, people suffering from uncontrolled chronic disorders—such as diabetes or heart disease—or patients who have had radiation therapy to the head or neck area need to be evaluated on an individual basis.
