What are the advantages of dental implants?
With the knowledge we have today in dentistry we can safely say that dental implants in Yonkers are the best option for replacing missing teeth. People with implants care for them just as they would their own natural teeth. They preserve bone structure which normally is lost when teeth are missing. Replacing missing teeth with implants prevents further tooth loss. The implant is made of Titanium, which is a biocompatible material that is readily accepted by the body which aids in healing.
Caring for implants is as simple as caring for your natural teeth. You brush and floss them just as you would your natural teeth. This is an advantage because you do not need to learn new techniques or purchase any extra devices to clean your implants.
When implants are placed after the extraction of the teeth, it preserves bone structure. This is important because bone structure in the teeth and jaws gives our face shape and form. Implants also prevent the tipping of the adjacent teeth into the space. When teeth have drifted or tipped to the side the teeth are no longer in occlusion. They are now susceptible to trauma and loss because they are hitting the opposing teeth incorrectly.
Another advantage of Implants is that the titanium screw that is placed in the jaw bone is biocompatible. This means the right candidate for implants can have successful outcomes in their treatment.
Implants are versatile and can replace single missing teeth or be placed to retain bridges or dentures. The advantages are substantial. Please call and schedule an appointment for an exam and implant consultation. We would be happy to answer your questions.
