You’ve probably heard about dental implants, but you may not know enough about them. At Dent-Care Dental, LLC, we want you to have all the information you need so that you can make a decision on how best to restore any missing teeth you have.
Our Jackson Heights dental implants are appropriate for the replacement of a single tooth, several, or even all of them on your upper or lower jaw. Done on a tooth by tooth basis, the construction of them consists of a titanium post and a tooth-colored crown. For multiple teeth or a full set, implants are used as a foundation for a more beneficial type of bridge or dentures; as such, they give you the positive aspects of those restorations without the drawbacks associated with them. You will begin with a consultation an examination to determine if you are a good candidate for our Jackson Heights dental implants. Your gums should be healthy and your jaw bone sufficiently thick and strong so that it can grow around the post and fuse with it reliably. If not, you can get bone grafting done as a remedy. The post is placed surgically, and it acts as a new root, something that old-fashioned bridges and dentures do not provide. This means that you won’t need messy adhesives, nor any loss of material from your other teeth. Upon the confirmation that the post has fused with your jaw, impressions are taken for the making of your crown, which will be made to precision, and then cemented to the post. With proper care, it will last a lifetime. And because it looks, feels, and acts like a natural tooth, it fits in perfectly; so much so that you’ll likely forget you have an implant at all.
