Missing teeth, whether one, two or several, can easily dampen your lifestyle, making it difficult and embarrassing to chew, smile, or even speak in a natural manner. The skilled professionals at Oakwood Dental Arts, with offices located the communities of Oakwood Heights and Tottenville, offer dental implants to Staten Island patients.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. The procedure may be used to replace one tooth or all of your teeth. Implants can help you eat better, feel more confident, look younger and have improved self-esteem. They can be more conservative than traditional bridgework because the surrounding teeth do not need to be filed down.
The first step in learning more about implants, and whether you are candidate for the procedure, is to contact a cosmetic dentist at a Staten Island location of Oakwood Dental Arts for an exam and consultation.
