The Dental Implants Process
At his Manhattan, NYC dentistry practice, Dr. Beshar takes pride in the fact that he has restored beauty and functionality to hundreds of smiles with dental implants. Dental implants are artificial tooth roots topped with natural-looking replacement teeth, and they are by far the most comfortable, convenient, and attractive option for patients looking to replace one or more teeth. Though the dental implants process takes a few months, our patients who have been fitted with implants agree that the investment of their time was absolutely worthwhile. Read on to learn about the dental implants process, then contact us to schedule a dental implants consultation at Marc J. Beshar Dentistry in Manhattan, NYC.
Step 1: Dental Implants Consultation
The first step in the dental implants process at Marc J. Beshar Dentistry is a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Beshar. During this appointment, you will discuss your smile restoration goals with Dr. Beshar and he will perform a thorough evaluation of your dental health to determine whether you are a good dental implants candidate. As a part of this examination, Dr. Beshar will assess the health of your gums and your jaw bone to make sure they can support dental implants. In some cases, oral surgery or grafting may be necessary to ensure adequate bone and gum tissue.
Step 2: Surgical Placement of Implants
Once you and Dr. Beshar have determined that dental implants are the right solution for you, you will return to his office in Manhattan, NYC for dental implant placement surgery. You will be given anesthesia to ensure your comfort for the duration of the procedure, during which Dr. Beshar will secure your dental implants to your jaw bone. To complete this visit, Dr. Beshar will fit you with a temporary replacement tooth and give you detailed instructions for post-operative care.
Step 3: Recovery
The recovery period after dental implant surgery is the longest part of the dental implants process, but it is also the most crucial stage. Over the course of three to six months (on average), your dental implants will actually become fused to your jaw bone in a process known as osseointegration. Once your implants have become completely joined with your jaw bone, they will be able to support dental restorations just as if they were natural tooth roots.
Step 4: Permanent Replacement Teeth
Once your dental implants have become fully integrated with your jaw bone, you will return to our office for the final step in the dental implants process. During this visit, Dr. Beshar will fit permanent replacement teeth over your dental implants. At our Manhattan, NYC office, we work with a premier dental laboratory to ensure that our patient’s restorations are custom crafted to closely match their existing teeth.
