There are several reasons why a patient in the Manhattan area may be faced with missing teeth. Perhaps one or more teeth have been lost due to periodontal disease, or patients have had a tooth extracted from cavities, a failed root canal, or injury. Regardless of how the tooth was lost, it is critical that patients visit a dentist as soon as possible to discuss replacement options. Missing teeth within the smile can result in the shifting of the existing teeth, wreaking havoc on the entire dental arch and in some cases requiring orthodontics to repair.

For many patients who visit Herald Square Dental and The Denture Center, dental implants are the best option. Dental implants are titanium posts used by patients to act as a tooth root. During oral surgery, dental implants are placed into the bone of the jaw and then restored over the top with a dental crown to act as a false tooth as a whole. However, some patients may use dental implants in other ways. For example, dental implants may be used to anchor a dental bridge in place when there is no tooth on the side to do so. Some patients use dental implants to stabilize their full dentures, avoiding the need for dental adhesives. These versatile restorations are often chosen because of their versatility, longevity, and the value they maintain over the years. Though more expensive at the onset of treatment, they are the best value for patients seeking permanent repair.
