Before dental implants in Staten Island were ever an option for area residents, removable dentures or a fixed bridge may have been the only solution available if you wanted to regain the ability to eat the food you like, speak clearly, and smile with confidence. These solutions, however, left much to be desired and often resulted in numerous problems, the least of which include constant slipping or the mortifying sounds of clicking while you eat or speak.
Fortunately, those days are over as Paramount Oral Surgery now offers dental implant services to its patients. Instead of sitting on the gum line like dentures, or using surrounding teeth as anchors, dental implants are permanent replacements that an oral and maxillofacial surgeon places within the jawbone. At our offices, the procedure is completed through the expert care of an experienced Staten Island oral surgeon relatively quickly.
Dental implants will not affect the health of neighboring teeth as is sometimes the case with fixed bridges, where decay and gum disease can cause the fixed bridgework to fail. Nor will dental implants lead to bone loss in the area where the tooth or teeth are missing, which can also be the case with dentures.
Dental implants require no plastic, no glue and no creams. Dental implants last longer.
For many individuals on Staten Island, dental implants are the best solution for those patients who have one or more missing teeth or who are about to lose teeth due to decay, disease, injury or some other trauma.
Dental Implants are a Remarkable Solution for Tooth Replacement
If you are living on Staten Island and are considering dental implants for tooth replacement, it is important to have a good sense of what a dental implant is and how it can benefit you. A dental implant is a self-sustaining, artificial tooth root that supports one or more replacement teeth. It consists of three parts: a titanium base that is anchored in the jawbone, an abutment that joins with the implant and extends from the gum line, and a crown that resembles a natural tooth that rests on the abutment.
Dental implants maintain the integrity of your jawbone, keep neighboring teeth healthy, and when properly cared for can last a lifetime. The success rate of dental implants is over 95%.
Dental implants can change the way you live.
Dental implants provide a foundation for replacement teeth which look, feel and function like natural teeth. Dental implants can enable you to regain the ability to eat virtually all the foods you love, smile with youthful confidence, and gain the peace of mind that comes from the knowledge that your teeth look natural and that the natural shape of your face has been preserved.
Dental implants can help you become yourself again.
Although you have several choices for the restoration of your missing teeth, none have proven to offer the long term effectiveness and sustainability of implants. Often, dental implants may be the only sensible choice.
Even if you are missing all or most of your teeth on the upper or lower arch, the oral surgeons at Paramount can help you support a full set of dental implants in Staten Island, enabling you to regain the ability to eat virtually any food and smile with confidence.
