NYC area patients who are faced with tooth loss may feel overwhelmed at the options available for tooth replacement. Tooth replacement is necessary as soon as possible to avoid further problems with the smile. The dentists of Herald Square Dental and The Denture Center may recommend dental implants for patients who are seeking a long-term solution to tooth loss.

Dental implants are a highly desirable option for patients for many reasons. These titanium posts are surgically placed into the bone of the jaw and then restored in an appropriate manner. This may be done with a dental crown, a bridge, or a denture. Dental implants are incredibly versatile making them a great solution for several of our patients.

Dental implants do require patients to have sufficient bone structure. This ensures that placement of the implant is successful and does not fail. Bone structure is needed to keep the implant in place and to allow for osseointegration to occur. Osseointegration is the growth of bone around the implant to solidify it in place and give it the stability required to achieve high functionality.

Dental implants are biocompatible and are known to last a lifetime with proper care. They do not require replacement unless patients experience conditions such as periodontal disease which can affect their bones. They are highly successful in placement when done correctly and can be a wonderful investment in the smile for many years to come. Patients who have dental implants placed can also have them restored at our practice.
