What are dental implants

Dental implants are replacement teeth usually constructed using titanium and are used to take the place of an existing tooth or teeth that may have gone “bad” due to poor dentistry, medical conditions, bone loss, gum disease or problem teeth. They look like natural teeth and blend in wonderfully with the teeth surrounding them. Dental implants are unlike a typical bridge or denture, which sits on top of the jawbone and gums ultimately causing pain and discomfort due to slipping or rocking of the dentures. The implant is securely anchored into the jawbone where it bonds, providing permanent support for dental crowns and dentures.

Dental implants act much like natural teeth resulting in pain free eating and drinking every single day. You can enjoy all of life’s delicacies and not have to think twice about it! Dental implants make life so much more convenient. No more reapplying of sticky adhesives day in and day out, and no more worries about a tooth accidentally falling out from eating or laughing too hard. You will have healthy, strong, natural looking teeth again. Let dental implants Staten Island change the rest of your life!
