Do you feel you may need an artificial tooth? Are you frustrated with how your dentures are fitting within your mouth? Dental implants may be the answer to your concerns. These are implants that are directly attached to your jaw bone in your mouth to help keep everything in place and comfortable. Learn more during a consultation with our team at Gertsberg Aesthetics in Brooklyn, NY!
What Are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are metal implants fused to your jawbone to make a secure spot for an artificial tooth or denture. These implants, which are commonly made of titanium, help keep teeth and hardware in place. Not only do they offer a stable, tight fit for crowns and dentures, but they can also make daily activities, like chewing, easier and smoother!
What Could I Expect from a Procedure?
Following a consultation, the process of dental implants begins with selecting an implant that adequately matches the size and function of the natural root of your tooth. This titanium piece will be attached to your jaw bone just like a tooth you would grow naturally. In the time following treatment, the jaw slowly grows around the artificial root – your dental implants. The replacement tooth, denture, or crown can be attached during a follow-up procedure.
Dental implants procedures are performed in the comfort of our New York office. Our qualified staff can provide you with all pre and post-care instructions. While there may not necessarily be downtime associated with the procedure, experiencing some pain in the treatment area may occur.
