How implants work
Dental implants are a wonderful solution for patients in the Melville, NY and Long island area with missing teeth. These titanium posts are used as a foundation for restorations such as bridges, crowns, and even dentures. They are held into the bone of the jaw for stability and strength, and is one of the most permanent options for patients to consider. Dental implants stimulate the process of bone maintenance by a process called osseointegration. When placed, dental implants provide a permanent restoration on a stable foundation for maximum function and esthetics.
The versatility of dental implants
Dental implants can replace one, several, or all the teeth in the dental arch. The titanium post is a foundation for any type of restoration. A single missing tooth can be replaced using a dental crown over the abutment of the implant, while an entire arch of teeth can be replaced with the stabilization of a full denture that snaps or screws into place with several implants along the jaw. Patients who need to replace several teeth may also find that the use of a dental implant to anchor one or both sides of a dental bridge is beneficial in providing a non-removable option. The versatility of dental implants is part of what makes them a popular choice.
