What Are Dental Implants?

Dental Implants Before and After

Teeth implants usually consist of three parts:

The implant screw: Gets permanently attached to your jaw, serving as the root for new teeth.

The abutment: A connector that gets attached to the implant, holds the new tooth or a set of teeth.

The crown: A prosthetic tooth that will be visible.

Dental implants are replacement teeth made from medical-grade titanium alloy which is a metal that is highly biocompatible with your body. Our leading dental implant specialist will surgically insert and fuse the implant post into the jawbone, artificially replacing a real tooth root.

Once the post integrates and bonds with the bone around it (osseointegration), the abutment gets installed, which will hold the crown. Then, our skilled periodontist will cap the post and abutment with a tooth-colored, natural-looking dental crown, dentures or bridges.

Brooklyn dental implants will help you smile more, speak more clearly, and chew better.

What’s Wrong with Choosing Dental Bridges or Dentures to Replace Missing Teeth?

Traditional methods of replacing teeth are well-known and include dentures and dental bridges. However, lots of people have memories of their parents or grandparents wearing dentures and know only too well the problems these prostheses can cause. Often dentures will move around, slipping out of place whenever people try to eat or talk. As they move, they can rub uncomfortably on the gums, creating sore patches that may take ages to heal.

Dental bridges are a good solution if you have teeth that are strong enough to support them, but they do mean substantially changing the overall shape of these teeth. To fit a dental bridge, a dentist must grind down healthy teeth, creating enough room for dental crowns to be placed over the top of the teeth.

Grinding down strong and healthy teeth is never an ideal solution because it increases the risk of these teeth becoming infected and decayed in the future, and especially as the dental bridge begins to age, potentially letting disease-causing bacteria that are naturally present in the mouth.

Of course, some people will be entirely happy with having a denture, or a bridge fitted to restore any missing teeth. However, there is another far more modern solution, and that is to choose dental implants. Nowadays, dental implants are becoming far more widely used in dentistry, and many dentists already consider them as being the gold standard for restoring lost teeth. In fact, there are lots of advantages to choosing dental implants, and some are listed below.

Dental Implants Nearly as Strong as Your Natural Teeth

Dental implants are nearly as strong as natural teeth, restoring your ability to bite and chew foods that you may have imagined was lost forever. The reason why dental implants are so strong is because they are made from titanium alloy, a biocompatible material that is widely used for medical appliances.

A dental implant consists of a post made from titanium alloy and which is surgically inserted into your jawbone. Once the post is inserted into the bone, the bone heals on and around the implant post because the metal is so highly biocompatible.

Within a few months, the implant is literally part of you. Once healed, the implant post is a strong anchorage point for a new tooth that may be a crown, or when multiple implants are placed, it could be a bridge or an implant-supported denture. To compare, removable dentures only provide around 25% to 50% of the natural biting force of your teeth.

Dental Implants Procedure

Your family dentist in Brooklyn first decides whether cheap dental implants are appropriate for you after a thorough exam. It helps that your implant dentist, also trained and certified in cosmetic dentistry, knows you and your oral history when it comes to recommending low cost dental implants.

Sometimes, you may need to have a tooth pulled or a root canal before teeth implants are inserted. To anchor the implants, posts made of titanium are implanted directly into your jawbone. When the first post is secure, another post is attached. This is called an abutment. It’s the piece that anchors the crown, serving as your new tooth.

Is the dental implants procedure painful?

Our Brooklyn dental implant specialist do everything they can to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. We offer a variety of pain management options during the dental implant procedure, making it practically painless.

How long is the implant recovery period?

Dental implant recovery will slightly differ for every patient. Most patients don’t even need pain medication after the dental implants procedure. In order for your implant to heal quicker and to avoid any dental implant problems, you should stick to a soft food diet for a few weeks. After that, you can treat your teeth implants as your natural teeth.

Dental implants success rate

Dental implant is an excellent treatment that has a very high success rate, typically 95% or more.

This is made possible because during osseointegration, the lightweight titanium posts used in dental implants treatment easily fuse with the jawbone as if they are the natural tooth roots.

The technology used to place a dental implant is tried and tested and should last you for years if not for life. Instead of wondering if your natural tooth will survive another round of root canal therapy, with an implant tooth, you should be able to enjoy many years of trouble-free use.

Am I a Candidate for Dental Implants?

Candidates for dental implants procedure in Brooklyn need to have good oral and general health. You should have no periodontal disease, healthy gum tissue, and sufficient bone in order to secure the dental implant post.

if you aren’t a candidate for implants, press on porcelain veneers may be the right choice  custom-made veneers or prepless veneers.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Your affordable dental implant cost depends on how many teeth are being inserted, what condition your mouth is in and what other dental services you need.

Does Insurance Cover Dental Implants?

Unfortunately, most dental insurers regard implants as being a cosmetic treatment even given the potential benefits of this treatment. While the cost of dental implants is usually not covered, it may be possible to claim the costs of an implant crown under your insurance policy. It is always worth checking with your insurance provider to see if you can claim back any of the costs associated with dental implants treatment.

Advantages of Dental Implants

A dental implant may feel better and look more natural than other teeth replacement options, but the advantages extend even further:

  • A tooth implant is designed to fuse with your jaw. Eventually, it becomes indistinguishable from your natural teeth.
  • You won’t have to experience the sometimes-difficult issues you may encounter with ill-fitting dentures. Even cheap dental implants from your Brooklyn cosmetic dentist are secure and stable.
  • Chewing is easier since affordable dental implants function just as effectively as your own teeth, allowing you to enjoy all your favorite foods.
  • You won’t face the discomfort of bridges or even partial dentures as dental implants literally are a part of your mouth.
  • You enjoy better overall dental health because your low cost dental implants help you keep more of your natural teeth.
  • Affordable dental implants are convenient and don’t require that you use adhesives or special cleaners to maintain.
  • With a smile makeover that includes teeth implants, your self-esteem can soar and your confidence levels improve drastically.

Dental Implants Preserve Your Jawbone

Did you know that when you lose a tooth, the bone that used to surround it gradually resorbs? This loss of bone affects the stability of your remaining natural teeth, and if you have lost several teeth, it can alter the shape of your mouth. It’s the reason why people have lost all their teeth often have a sunken-in look and can be prematurely wrinkled.

Because dental implants are inserted directly into the jawbone, they prevent this jawbone loss by closely replicating a real tooth and tooth root. They are the only treatment available that can preserve your jawbone.

Above all, dental implants can look amazing and with the proper care may last for decades or even for life. If you have lost teeth or know tooth loss is in your future, it’s worth investigating dental implants further. You’ll enjoy having teeth that look and feel just like your own, and that is definitely something to smile about.

Tooth Implants Have Predictable Results

The idea of having oral surgery to insert the dental implants may sound alarming, but this treatment is highly predictable.

Typically, dental implants have a success rate of 95% and some experienced dental implant dentists have rates of 98%. The reason why these success rates are so high is that dental implant dentists can screen potential patients very carefully, ensuring this is the right treatment that will provide the desired outcome.

To do this, dental implant dentists will look at the amount of jawbone available for dental implants. Because the implant post must fuse with the surrounding bone, it’s essential for it to be placed into jawbone that is strong and healthy. Also, for the healing process to occur smoothly, it’s important to have reasonable overall health. Your implant dentist will want to know all about your dental health and your medical health to make sure your dental implants have an excellent chance of success.

Usually, most people are highly suitable for implant treatment, and one common misconception is that age could be a barrier. In fact, the only requirement where age is concerned is that you should be over age 18 and your teeth and jaws must have finished growing and developing. Dental implants have been successfully placed in people in their 80s or even in their 90s!

Dental Implants Don’t Decay

Unlike natural teeth, dental implants won’t decay. Often, a deep cavity can weaken tooth and especially if it needs root canal treatment. However, although dental implants are artificial, it’s important never to lose sight of the fact that they are surrounded by living tissue, which is your jawbone and gum tissue.

These tissues can become infected if you don’t take care of your dental implant teeth because they must be cleaned thoroughly. The good news is that it is super easy to take care of dental implants and especially single implant teeth because you can brush and floss them just like real teeth.

Otherwise, your dental implant dentist can show you precisely how to clean around dental implant bridges and how to take care of implant-supported dentures.

Regular checkups and professional dental cleanings will also help to maintain strong and healthy dental implants.
