What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants, also known as tooth implants, are dental restorations that replace missing or decaying teeth. Implant-supported restorations consist of an implant post, an abutment, and prosthetic teeth. They are the only dental restoration that replaces an entire tooth from root to crown.

We offer implant-supported dental crowns to recreate a missing or compromised tooth in your upper or lower arches. If you have multiple decaying or missing teeth in a row, we offer implant-supported bridges, which consist of an implant post at the beginning and end of your restoration with prosthetic teeth called pontics suspended between them.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Dental implants have a wide array of benefits, ranging from boosting the aesthetics of your smile to the functionality of your bite. Every tooth plays an important part in your bite and your overall dental structures, so it's necessary to address a missing or decaying tooth with a reliable alternative. Here are some of the benefits you can expect to enjoy with our beautiful tooth implants in New York:

  • Bite Pattern: Your bite pattern directly impacts your dental health because the placement of each tooth is key to keeping the neighboring teeth in their positions. If you have missing or decaying teeth, the remaining natural teeth can shift and become damaged by uneven wear caused by chewing. Our dental implants recreate the surface area of compromised teeth to restore your bite pattern.
  • Bone Health: Dental implants are the only type of restoration that uses an implant post to secure your crown or bridge. The implant post works like a natural tooth root and stimulates your jawbone, which helps to prevent bone loss. The post is made from a body-safe material like titanium, and it fuses with your jawbone to provide a firm base for the restoration.
  • Facial Appearance: Decaying or missing teeth detract from the beauty of your smile. That's why we offer custom implant-supported crowns and bridges to rejuvenate the fullness of your smile. The implant post also plays an important role in preventing bone loss and preserving your natural facial structure.

Our Dental Implant Process

The moment you walk into our cozy, boutique dental practice, you know you're a priority. Our friendly team will take the time to get to know you and ask questions to ensure we understand your specific concerns and oral health needs. Our dentist performs a gentle, thorough exam and then crafts a treatment plan personalized to address your unique needs, lifestyle, and smile goals. If you require any pretreatments, we'll include those in your plan.

We are dedicated to providing the services you need under one roof, so we perform the placement and restoration procedures. The dentist strategically places the implant post for your dental crown or bridge, and then you'll take time to heal and allow the post to fuse with your jawbone in a process called osseointegration.

Once you've healed, our dentist fits your custom implant-supported restoration. We artfully match your crown or bridge to the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth to create a beautifully blended smile. Our dentist will provide helpful tips and instructions, and you'll leave our office ready to share your new smile.

Pretreatments for Implant Teeth

We believe that quality dental care means providing the range of services you need to enjoy consistent care from a team you trust. That's why we offer pretreatments for dental implants. If you have a thin or weak jawbone, we provide bone grafts to improve its density. For those with decayed teeth, we offer extractions to remove the teeth and make way for your custom implant-supported crown or bridge.

Tooth Implant FAQs

Transforming your smile can seem like a complicated process, and it's normal to have questions. That's why we encourage you to voice your questions and concerns. Our team is happy to provide the answers and resources you need to make an informed decision regarding your treatment plan. Here are some of the most common questions we receive about teeth implants in Chelsea:

How long do dental implants last?

The implant post is permanent because it fuses with your jawbone, so that you won't have a second placement procedure. The prosthetic teeth can last a decade or longer when you care for them properly.

Yes. Dental implants restore your ability to eat many of your favorite foods. However, you should avoid chewing ice, hard candies, and certain nuts because they can damage the prosthetic teeth.

Dental implants are relatively easy to care for because you simply brush and floss them twice daily, just like your natural teeth. It's important to maintain your biannual dental appointments so our dentist can verify the integrity of your implant-supported restoration.
