You might feel embarrassed if you have missing teeth. It can harm your self-confidence not to have a Hollywood smile. Everyone wants to be proud of themselves when they smile in the mirror, after all. Luckily, there are numerous options for rebuilding lost teeth today. Dental implants are considered to be the most effective and most lifelike replacement for lost teeth. Here at Bayside Family Dentistry in Bayside, NY, Doctor Aram Cazazian highly recommends this treatment if you are worried about your smile after losing a tooth or having a decayed one.
Dental implants are created to replace both the crown and the root of your missing tooth. Oher treatments at Bayside Family Dentistry will only address the missing crown. A new tooth root, however, will help stop the deterioration of the jawbone which is best when considering your appearance and your oral health.
Teeth that are restored with dental implants will function just like natural teeth, meaning you can eat your favorite foods and brush and floss without restraint.
Regarding appearance, dental implants are almost impossible to tell apart from your normal teeth. You might not even be able to tell the difference!
Dental Implants are made to last and can stay in your mouth for upwards of thirty years – or even the rest of your life.
After Bayside Family Dentistry has decided that you’re a good person to receive dental implants, the first step is the placing the implants into the jawbone. Once this is done, you will begin to heal, which can take months. During this time, your body will begin healing, and oral tissue and bone will form around the implant which will create a solid foundation.
After healing, it is time to return to design and place the restoration on top of the implant. All-ceramic dental crowns are highly recommended for singular implants, while an implant-retained bridge or denture can cover many implants at once in a more affordable manner.
Dental implant costs will vary by person, which is why it is important to consult your dentist to find out how much this procedure will cost you. It is important to consider the long-term benefit of your dental implants. They can last the rest of your life, after all!
