If you have questions about dental implants, then you have come to the right place! Dental implants have been a popular form of smile restorations for more than 40 years, because of their success and long-term results. That is why our team here at Celenza, Frank DDS, PC in New York, New York, is happy to provide dental implants, and give you some basic information on how they can restore your smile.
Dental implants are a successful way to replace a missing tooth and an excellent choice if you are looking for a lasting restoration. Restoring a lost tooth is important because, if a tooth can’t connect to the jaw bone, you could risk bone loss in your jaw. How it works is the dental implant acts as the root of the tooth, giving your jaw bone and gum line the support it needs.
Titanium is the important material of choice when it comes to dental implants because they work so well with our body. Once the implant is surgically placed in your jaw, your bone will fuse around the dental implant making it a durable anchor of support for your smile. During the healing period, your doctor might recommend a diet of cooler drinks and softer foods for your smile.
When the healing period is finished, Dr. Frank Celenza will be able to customize a dental crown to place over the dental implant to blend in to your other teeth. The dental crown is important because it looks like your natural tooth, so this will give you a complete smile restoration.
