With advancements in dental technology replacing missing teeth is now more natural looking and comfortable. Dental implants have become the preferred method and gold standard of missing tooth replacement and can be difficult to distinguish from your natural teeth. Highly trained and experienced restorative dentist, Dr. Bard Levey places dental implants for patients with missing teeth. Our Cortlandt, NY dentist office offers dental implants for improved health, aesthetics, and function so you may enjoy your optimal oral health.
Dental Implant Process
Dental implants are made of medical grade titanium. These tiny posts are surgically inserted into a healthy root socket. The titanium posts fuse with your natural bone stimulating growth and supporting facial structure. Once healed, a dental crown, bridge or denture is permanently secured to your implant post for a natural-looking and highly functioning dental restoration.
Benefits of Dental Implants Cortlandt, NY
Dental implants offer several important benefits for overall and long term dental health:
- Improved bone and gum health (compared to alternative restorations)
- Avoids degradation of remaining healthy teeth (as in conventional bridgework)
- Improves the appearance of the smile and lower face
- Patients can enjoy a healthy diet without restrictions
- No worry of slippage or dentures “falling out”
Implant Secured Dentures
Dental implants can also be used to secure a denture. Dental implant secured dentures provide a permanent and stable solution for patients missing several consecutive or all of their teeth. Implant supported dentures require no additional care outside of your normal oral hygiene routine and regular professional teeth cleanings at our Cortlandt area dentist office.
Why Replace Missing Teeth?
Missing teeth can trigger many dental health concerns when left untreated. Missing teeth may cause infection of the gums, bone deterioration, or premature aging of the face due to bone loss. Replacing your missing teeth with dental implants provides improved oral health, and can increase your confidence and quality of life. It is important to treat missing teeth to avoid further damage to your remaining teeth and gums.
