Astoria Dental Office
Dental Office in Astoria
If you have missing teeth it is very important that they are replaced because adjacent teeth will try to move over to fill in the gap left by the missing tooth. Also, the jawbone will eventually atrophy due to the fact that there is a missing tooth root. Happily, getting dental implants at our Astoria dental office will prevent both of these problems from occurring.
At our Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, just one of our top notch dentist is Dr. Dale D. Goldschlag. Many of our patients at Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, enjoy getting dental because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. Dental implants serve as a strong foundation for replacement teeth. The two portions of a total dental implant include the lower titanium dental implant root and the upper porcelain crown portion. Since these teeth replacements are extremely stable, our patients never need to worry that they will be embarrassed by the dental implant slipping or causing pain. With dental implants in place you can eat anything you want, and you will enjoy having a fully restored smile. This will also help your facial contours to be preserved since your jawbone will not atrophy.
A patient will generally receive one dental implant for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Some patients may instead get a full arch of dentures that is supported by just a few dental implants. In the traditional use of dental implants, each dental implant will have a titanium dental implant root and a porcelain crown. Once the dental implant root is inserted into the jawbone by one of our dentists at our Astoria dental office, including Dr. Dale D. Goldschlag, there will be a waiting period of several months during which the jawbone will fully heal from the surgery and the dental implant will completely fuse so the jawbone. Then a beautiful porcelain crown will be permanently attached to the dental implant root.
