Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

For many patients, getting dental implants is the best way to replace missing natural teeth. If you lost any teeth due to tooth decay, disease, or a traumatic injury, you may feel self-conscious about your smile. Strong, durable, and aesthetically attractive dental implants can help restore the simple confidence that comes with having natural teeth.

A dental implant consists of a titanium post that’s surgically implanted into your upper or lower jawbone. The post serves as the root for a dental crown, and together they look and act just like your natural teeth. The implants fuse to your jawbone so they are strong, stable, and don’t shift in your mouth.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants have repaired the smiles of millions of people for years. Other than performing, looking, and feeling just like your natural teeth, dental implants also offer the following benefits:

  • They are a long-term solution, lasting at least 15-20 years with proper hygiene
  • They help maintain your natural face shape and restore your smile
  • They protect the health and integrity of your jawbone
  • They maintain the positioning of surrounding natural teeth

Unlike dentures, implants are firmly fixed, so they don’t fall out or move around in your mouth. You can chew and speak with comfort and ease.

What types of dental implants are offered?

Dental implants can replace a singular missing tooth but can also provide comprehensive restoration to your smile. At Creative Dentistry of Brooklyn Heights, the team provides the following innovative options:

Implant-supported dentures

Implant-supported dentures are a way to replace an entire row of teeth in a stable, natural-looking manner. Dentures can snap into your implants, creating a more stable and secure set of replacement teeth. These dentures are removable and can be taken out for cleaning and sleeping.

Implant-supported bridge

If you have three or more adjacent missing teeth, an implant-supported bridge is a valid option. The bridge is supported by an implant on each end, so there’s no need to prepare your existing teeth to hold a crown to prop up the bridge. 

All-on-Four™

All-on-Four is an implant solution for those who are missing an entire row of teeth. The procedure uses just four implants to support an entire arch of replacement teeth.

Am I a good candidate for dental implants?

If you're missing teeth, you may be an ideal candidate for getting dental implants. Your gums need to be healthy, and your jaw must be finished growing. Dental implants are usually not recommended for children, but they are an excellent solution for adults.

Your dentist at Creative Dentistry of Brooklyn Heights will discuss all of your options during your consultation.
