How dental implants from your Midtown New York City dentist can save your smiledental implants

If you have stopped smiling because of missing teeth, it’s time for you to consider dental implants. If you have lost one or more teeth, dental implants may be the right solution for you. If you don’t want to wear a partial or dentures because they move around, dental implants can give you the stability your smile deserves. Dr. Kara Mason at Gentle Dental NYC, in Midtown, New York, NY wants to share the magic of what dental implants can do for your smile.

Many people choose dental implants instead of bridgework, partials or dentures to replace their missing teeth. These are just some of the reasons why dental implants are the treatment-of-choice to complete your smile:

  • Implants are natural-looking and beautiful because they look and function just like your natural teeth
  • Implants are a permanent addition to your smile because they are embedded in bone and become part of your smile
  • Implants are easy to clean because you can brush and floss them just like natural teeth

Implants are also a conservative method of tooth replacement compared to dental bridgework. A dental bridge requires crowning the teeth on both sides of the missing tooth area. With implants, there is no preparation needed of the teeth around the implants.

Dental implants are also more successful than any other surgical implant, with a success rate of over 95 percent!

Your dental implant procedure begins with detailed x-rays and to develop a treatment plan just for you. The implants are placed during a simple in-office procedure. The implants are capped with beautiful crowns after the tissue and bone have healed completely.

Don’t let missing teeth keep you from smiling. You can fill in the gaps with the most natural-looking tooth replacement option available. Your smile can look even better than before, thanks to dental implants.
