Dental Implants

Dental Implants in Bronx, NY

Implants are the latest standard for tooth replacement, as they replicate the look, feel, and function of natural teeth. Dental implants are an ideal, long-term solution for those who suffer from missing teeth, failing teeth, or chronic dental problems.

Dental implants typically have three parts:

  1. The Implant: The screw that is inserted in the jaw, that serves as a replacement root for your new tooth.
  2. The Abutment: A connecting piece that joins the implant and crown.
  3. The Crown: The replacement tooth, which is the part of the prosthetic tooth that is visible.

Dental implants do much more than replace missing teeth, including:

Preventing Bone Loss

When you lose a tooth, a space is created, and the teeth remaining next to the gap start to move. As a result, your straight, healthy teeth begin to slant and become unstable. This could lead to bone loss and additional tooth loss. However, by filling in gaps with dental implants, these issues can be prevented.

Enabling You to Chew Food Better

One of the primary reasons dental implants are so essential is that they allow you to chew food properly. Chewing food the right way helps you to digest food better, enabling more nutrients to be absorbed into your body.  With dental implants, you can eat whatever you enjoy, as implants are as close as it gets to having natural teeth.

Smiling for a Happier and Healthier You!

Not only do we feel more confident when we smile, but smiling is scientifically proven to make you feel happier, by releasing endorphins and serotonin in your body. Smiling also has been proven to reduce blood pressure, reduce stress, and boost your immune system due to the release of certain neurotransmitters.

#2- Improve Oral Function

Dental implants fit, feel, and act like natural teeth. Missing teeth can make it difficult for people to pronounce certain words. Dental implants can improve your clarity of speech. Tooth loss can also make it difficult for people to chew food. With dental implants, you will experience a dramatic improvement in chewing ability.  

#3- Stop Jawbone Loss

The most common cause of jawbone loss is a missing tooth left unreplaced. Dental implants help to prevent bone loss and stimulate bone growth. Dental implants distribute chewing forces throughout the bone and minimize the wearing away of the bone. 

#4- Prevent Teeth Shifting

Although your teeth feel as if they are set in the jawbone, they are capable of drifting out of place. When people lose a tooth, the surrounding teeth begin to shift out of place. Dental implants can prevent your existing teeth from moving out of place. 

#5- Increase Your Self-Esteem

Losing a tooth can be a traumatic experience for many people. Tooth loss can lead to low self-esteem which can affect the quality of a people's lives in many different ways. Dental implants can restore your smile and help you feel better about yourself.
