For patients seeking tooth replacement, dental implants may be the best treatment option for many of our families. Dental implants are titanium posts used to mimic the function of a natural tooth root. When a tooth is missing, placing a dental implant in its place may be the most effective way of replacing a tooth. This titanium post has an abutment that is restored with a dental crown over the top. This restores the appearance and function of the smile.
There are many reasons why patients choose dental implants. First off, they can last a lifetime when patients take good care of their teeth. This means brushing and flossing on a regular basis, as well as routine examinations at the dental office. Second, dental implants are permanent and do not require extra care or attention as bridges or dentures do. Dental implants also function like the natural teeth and many patients forget they have tooth replacements in their smile.
Dental implants can only be placed if a patient is a proper candidate. The best candidate for dental implants is an individual with a healthy smile and sufficient bone structure. This is essential as the implant needs bone to stabilize itself. Even after placement, the bone grows around the implant during a process called osseointegration. This is the stimulation of bone growth caused by the placement of the implant and is necessary for a secure fit and proper function.
Dental implants are a great option for many of the patients in Hewlett NY and beyond. Dr. Kaminer believes that every patient should have a variety of treatment solutions ready for them to choose from.
