If you have a missing tooth or teeth that need to be replaced, you may be thinking about getting dental implants. At our dental practice, Elliott Ostro DMD, our dental surgeon in New York NY, Dr. Elliott Ostro, is highly experienced in providing patients with dental implants.
Dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement method because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. Dental implants are comprised of the lower titanium dental implant root portion and the upper porcelain crown portion. When our dental surgeon in New York NY determines that you are a good candidate for getting dental implants, a titanium dental implant root will be surgically inserted into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Our dentist knows exactly where to insert the dental implant for the very best dental implant results. Once the dental implant is inserted into your jawbone, there will be a healing period of several months during which time the jawbone completely heals and the dental implant root fully fuses to the jawbone. Once this healing period is complete, a porcelain crown will be created for you and be permanently attached to the top of the dental implant root. The porcelain crown will perfectly color-match your adjacent teeth so no one will ever know that you have a dental implant in your mouth. And the dental implant will be so comfortable that you too will soon forget it is not your natural tooth. Once the crown is attached, your dental implant is complete and you will be able to eat, chew, and smile in total confidence and total comfort. Best of all, if well taken care of with excellent oral hygiene, and periodic dental cleanings at the dentist’s office, there is no reason why your dental implant will not last a lifetime.
