At Herald Square Dental & The Denture Center, it is our intent to help our patients sustain optimal oral health throughout their lives. A number of factors can affect the health and integrity of our teeth and gums, so we put a great deal of effort into mitigating them. Additionally, our dentists have obtained the extensive training that enables patients to feel comfortable should a situation arise in which tooth replacement becomes necessary.

Let’s Talk Implants

For several reasons, dental implants have become the go-to treatment of our New York, NY patients needing to replace one or more teeth.  This method of tooth replacement is not new, but it is still gaining ground. The fact that we can now look back over decades and see a consistently successful track record is catapulting implant dentistry into a leading spot in restorative dentistry. Some of the significant advantages of implant treatment include:

  • Ultimate comfort, especially for substantial fixtures like dentures. Typically, denture wearers complain about the discomfort of sliding and rubbing against the gums. Stabilized by implants, dentures don’t move around in the mouth.
  • Ease of care. Implants are situated beneath the gums. They require no special care. The materials from which implants and crowns, bridges, and dentures are made resist decay and corrosion. The most important aspect of care is to brush and floss in order to maintain healthy gums. Gum disease could lead to implant failure.
  • Optimal confidence. Again, the greater the extent of tooth loss, the greater the benefit. We have often heard from denture wearers that they avoid eating certain foods. Well, dental implants change all that! Replacement teeth feel just like natural teeth because they are stabilized in the same basic manner as natural roots. This means you can eat a dense steak just as easily as you can a soft egg.
  • Longevity. Like your natural teeth, dental implants are intended to last your lifetime. The only caveat is that you maintain gum health. Situating implants into the jawbone also creates longevity in the structure of your jaw and face, because these fixtures carry on the duties that once belonged to your roots: to stimulate the regeneration of bone tissue in the jaw.

We are happy to speak with you about dental implants and how they can restore the best aspects of your smile. Call New York Office Phone Number212-689-0024.
