What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is an artificial device surgically inserted into your jaw bone to replace a missing tooth. The implant post creates permanent support for a replacement tooth, and the crown resembles a natural tooth in every way. The metal screw fuses to your bone to provide stable support for the replacement tooth. Depending on the condition of your jaw bone, your Downtown NYC dentist may choose:

  • Endosteal implants, which are titanium posts surgically implanted directly into your bone
  • Subperiosteal implants, used when the density of the bone is insufficient, which involve fixing a metal frame on your jaw bone to support the dental implant

If you have a missing tooth or missing teeth, an implant offers the best solution for a smile makeover. Teeth implants also improve your digestion, as you can properly chew healthy raw food and grains. Dental implants are a specialty of Dr. Alex Shalmanat his boutique family and cosmetic dentistry in Lower Manhattan. He provides personalized treatment and care based on your specific needs.

What’s the Process for Getting Dental Implants?

The first phase of a tooth implant entails fixing a metal post made of titanium into your jaw bone. This procedure is performed while you’re under local anesthesia to relieve pain. Steps involved in this procedure include:

If your jaw is in good condition and there are no other extenuating dental conditions, you may opt for immediate implant placement. Your dentist places the post in a fresh socket where a tooth has been extracted. This reduces your wait time considerably. Only an experienced dental implant expert like Dr. Shalman can determine which process is ideal for you.

What Are the Advantages of Dental Implants?

If you’re missing one or more teeth, you have several dental procedures to choose from. A dental implant often offers the best solution. Some advantages of a tooth implant include:

  • Implants offer a more permanent solution for a missing single tooth.
  • Denture implants and single tooth implants offer a more natural replacement for missing teeth.
  • Expect a higher success rate for this form of tooth replacement.
  • Implants solve your chewing problems and any speech issues, while maintaining your facial appearance.
  • Dental implants improve oral health by reducing the risk of bone loss, cavities, abscesses and periodontal disease.
  • Implants deliver firmer support for false teeth when compared to dentures.

Cost and convenience are other factors you may want to consider. Set up a consultation and explain what you like and don’t like about your smile. Listen to what the dentist recommends. The best dentist for you is one who:

  • Puts you at ease
  • Listens to your concerns and goals
  • Offers thorough explanations
  • Works with you to develop a treatment plan

Where Can I Find The Best Cosmetic Dentist In NYC?

Cosmetic dentistry can greatly enhance your appearance and sky-rocket your self-confidence when done correctly. You deserve to have a healthy smile that looks good and helps you to feel good about yourself.

Unlike dentures, bridges and other teeth replacements, implants are permanent. They’ll last a lifetime if you care for them properly, and proper care is the same as for your natural teeth.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Your dental implant cost depends on a number of factors, such as:

  • The number of implants you need
  • The type of implants you’re getting
  • The number of dental visits required
  • The extent of your jaw bone damage
  • The location of the implant in your mouth
  • Your geographical location

Due to the extent of dental work involved, even cheap dental implants cost more than a dental bridge.
