Patients who want to smile with confidence after tooth loss need to work with a dental team who provides a wide range of tooth replacement options. The dentists at Manhattan area practice, Herald Square Dental and The Denture Center are delighted to give patients the chance to choose from three primary methods of replacing teeth: dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants. There is no “one size fits all” solution, though there are benefits to having restorations such as dental implants for replacing one or more teeth.


Dental implants are often chosen for their longevity. These titanium restorations, which look like hardware screws, are fabricated to act as a tooth root replacement. The dentist places them during oral surgery into the bone of the jaw, and the process of osseointegration is stimulated. This is the growth of bone around the implant to hold it firmly in place. After the implant is solidified into the bone, it is restored in the manner chosen by the patient. A single tooth is often replaced with a dental crown over the abutment of the dental implant, while several teeth can be replaced by using a bridge or denture in conjunction with the implant.


There are several advantages to using dental implants. First, they are highly successful when placed by a professional. Patients who maintain the health of their smile may also enjoy their dental implants for an extended period of time, often for the rest of their life, by maintaining regular dental visits and evaluations to ensure problems do not arise. Dental implants are permanent, natural looking, and are a wonderful investment in the smile.


Drs. Ian Pasch, Arthur Yam, and Alfred Shirzadnia of Herald Square Dental and The Denture Center provide Manhattan area patients with a wide selection of solutions when it comes to replacing missing teeth, though dental implants are often recommended.
