Do you need to replace a missing tooth root?

Dental implants are a restorative procedure. They beautify your smile and reinforce your jawbone. Your dentists in Yonkers, NY, Dr. Fedele Vero, Dr. Christine Fumo, and Dr. Alec Ganci, are here to help and advise you!

What are dental implants?

If you're suffering from tooth loss, you need to deal with this problem immediately. Why? Well, tooth loss may cause bone deterioration, and getting a dental implant can prevent that.

How does your Yonkers dentist install dental implants?

  1. Your dentist applies a local anesthetic in the area that will undergo the procedure.
  2. Your dentist removes the tooth remnant, then inserts a titanium post into the jawbone to replace the missing tooth root. The titanium post is biocompatible so you don't need to worry about tissue rejection.
  3. The doctor surgically closes the area and allows it to heal for a period of 3-to-6 months so the post can fuse to your jawbone
  4. After these few months, when you come back, your dentist re-open the surgical area, inserts an abutment, and places a crown over the abutment that matches the rest of your teeth.

What are the advantages of dental implants?

Implants have a high success rate with a 95% success rate compared to other dental restorations and, with proper care, can last a lifetime. Another advantage is dental implants are more comfortable and practical since they don't slip out of your mouth whenever you eat or speak.

And as mentioned above, dental implants provide your jawbone with the support it needs so that it doesn't shrink. These oral appliances fill a single gap in your teeth, a few gaps, or all of your teeth, and rejuvenates your beautiful smile.
