What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants from Manhattan, NYC dentist Dr. Beshar are the most comfortable, convenient, and aesthetically pleasing tooth replacement solution for patients who are missing one or more teeth. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, usually made from titanium, which is permanently integrated with a patient’s jaw bone and topped with a custom-crafted replacement tooth or teeth. If you are ready to fill the gaps in your smile with beautiful and natural-looking replacement teeth, we encourage you to read on to learn more about dental implants from Marc J. Beshar Dentistry in Manhattan, NYC.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Patients come to us from throughout the Manhattan, NYC area for dental implants because they offer a number of benefits when compared to other tooth replacement options. Because dental implants replace the tooth root as well as the missing tooth, they help prevent bone loss, gum recession, shifting teeth, and bite misalignment. What’s more, dental implants are permanent so they feel just like natural teeth and never slip out of place like dentures often do. Also unlike dentures, which require daily maintenance, dental implants require nothing more than a good oral hygiene routine to stay strong and beautiful for a lifetime and they never need to be removed for cleaning, eating, or sleeping.
The Dental Implants Process
Though the dental implants process does take more time than other tooth restoration options, patients who come to our Manhattan, NYC practice for dental implants agree that the results make their time investment well worthwhile. The first step in the dental implants process is a consultation with Dr. Beshar. During this visit, you will discuss your tooth replacement goals and Dr. Beshar will conduct a brief examination to determine whether you are a dental implants candidate. Once you and Dr. Beshar decide that dental implants are your best option, you will return to our office for the surgical placement of the titanium posts that will ground your replacement tooth or teeth. After this visit, the process of osseointegration will begin. Osseointegration is the process during which the artificial tooth roots will become fused to your jaw bone, and it takes a few months. When this is complete, you will return to Marc J. Beshar Dentistry so that Dr. Beshar can attach your custom-crafted replacement tooth or teeth to their roots, completing the dental implants process.
