What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are permanent, stable tooth replacements that can be used to replace one missing tooth, several missing teeth, or all of a person’s teeth. A patient begins by having a titanium dental implant post screw surgically implanted into their jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This screw acts as a type of tooth root and ensures that your dental restoration is stable. After having it inserted into the jaw the patient will require a short healing period to allow the bone to begin to bond with the biocompatible post.
Once the healing period is complete, our experienced dental implant dentist will place the replacement tooth on top of the implant post. Depending on which teeth are missing and your personal dental needs, your implant restoration might be a dental crown, dental bridge, complete denture, or partial denture. Each dental implant restoration created by the expert tooth implant dentists in Long Island at Art of Dentistry PC is custom-made to fit your smile comfortably and aesthetically.
Steps For Getting a Dental Implant
1. Preparing the Tooth Implant
First, a dentist will need to determine the size and shape of the dental implant needed and assess the space the implant will be fitted into.
2. Inserting the Implant Screw
The next step is to have the dental implant screw surgically inserted into the patient’s jawbone. Then the patient waits for the surrounding area to heal.
3. Adding the Dental Implant Post
Once the jawbone had healed a dentist will cap the dental implant with a post that looks and acts like a real tooth.
4. Routine Tooth Maintenance
After the dental post has been added to the implant screw the patient is good to go. And with proper oral hygiene, their new dental implant could last them the rest of their life.
