Dental Implants in Brooklyn

Implant illustrationAccording to medical statistics, only 20% of people worldwide can say they have completely healthy teeth. Many go to the dentist when it’s too late to treat the diseased tooth; removal is the only option.

The embarrassment and irritation from tooth loss can significantly affect our appearance and confidence when facing the world. Dental implants are an excellent choice for those who are tired of bulky dentures and are looking for a better solution. They’re the most natural-looking option, and unlike dentures, you don’t remove them for cleaning, and you can still eat the foods you love.

Filling in the Gaps

Implants are fixed appliances screwed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. Their titanium roots provide a solid foundation for the replacement tooth. The planning process begins with diagnostic tests and a complete medical history to confirm you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.

The procedure starts with making sure you’re comfortable and pain-free. After being surgically implanted into the jaw, the implant takes root and fuses with the bone as it heals, and a temporary crown is placed on top. This first step may take between three to six months as the healing rate will vary with each person. Once healed, a permanent crown is placed to complete the restoration.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it painful to install implants?

Everyone is unique, so the sensations before and after the procedure may differ. In dentistry, effective painkillers are available, and the doctor will prescribe a course of drugs to ease pain and swelling and protect against infection.

Is there a difference in placing implants in the upper vs. the lower jaw?

The bone tissue in the lower jaw tends to be denser than the upper. The lower jaw is very mobile and full of blood vessels and nerves, which allows the implant to take root faster, requiring great care during the installation.
The upper jaw is more porous, often requiring bone grafting to build up atrophied bone. The bone tissue of the upper jaw is adjacent to the maxillary sinuses, requiring extra care on our dentist’s part.

At what age can implants be placed?

Lost teeth can be restored at the end of puberty (after 18 years) and the cessation of growth. As a rule, our dentist will conduct an examination and determine how developed the root system of the teeth is.

Is it possible to do an MRI after implantation?

Modern implants are made of non-magnetic materials, so they are safe for tomography. Before the procedure, tell the doctor about the presence of any implant, crown, or prosthesis to ensure the procedure is accurate.
