Dental Implant Procedure In NYC
Dental implants are a permanent solution to replace lost or missing teeth. Dental implants at Luxury Dentistry in NYC are performed with a biocompatible titanium screw-like fixture implanted into the jawbone. Titanium is a unique material that fuses with your bone in a process called osseointegration, mimicking a natural tooth root.
After an appropriate time for healing and stabilizing the implant, a tooth crown made of porcelain will be attached to the implant, leaving you with a natural-looking, secure and stable tooth.
Thanks to your dental implant, not only will you feel confident smiling again, but your implant will also protect and preserve your bone and jaw structure, as well as helping bite and jaw alignment.
What To Expect During Your Dental Implant Procedure In NYC
After consultation with the doctor, a personalized treatment plan is drawn up for you and impressions of your mouth taken. Using state-of-the-art iTero digital impression technology, we reduce the discomfort associated with traditional impressions and reduce the treatment planning time considerably.
The timeframe for fitting the implant and the replacement tooth depends on several factors. Placing a single implant should take around half an hour, while several implants will take longer. It is important to remember that the entire process can take several months from start to finish.
What To Expect After Your Dental Implant Procedure In NYC
After your implant has been placed, the bone in your jaw will need a few months to grow around your titanium implant. Aftercare is essential to ensure the successful integration of the implant and detailed advice is provided to you on how to look after your implants. Cleaning around the tooth attached to an implant should be no different from cleaning around a regular tooth. However, some areas might be a bit harder to reach, and you will be shown how to clean them properly.
