Brooklyn Implant Dentist
Implant Dentist in Brooklyn
Cosmetic dentistry has come a long way in recent years, and our Brooklyn implant dentist at Contemporary Dental Implant Centre has been at the forefront of these advancements. One common cosmetic dental procedure is dental implants. For many different reasons, many people will need a dental implant during their lifetime. Knowing you are in good hands makes the procedure much less nerve wracking. Bone grafts used for dental implants may need to be used for dental implant procedures.
A dental implant is essentially made up of two pieces. A metal cylinder is placed into the jaw bone where the missing tooth would be. This acts like the root of the tooth and will anchor in the implant. When the screw is implanted in, your gums and jaw heal around it securing it into place. Then a crown is screwed on to the metal piece, creating the appearance of a tooth. After an examination, our Brooklyn implant dentist may discuss the possibility of undergoing a bone graft for implants if your jaw bone is too soft or thin to keep the implant securely in place. If a jaw bone cannot support the implant, the implant surgery may fail.
A bone graft works by taking a section of bone from another area of your body and grafting it to the jaw bone. This take several months of waiting and healing time while the graft creates enough new strong bone for the implant to be securely placed into. Sometimes these can be done at the same time though. The most important aspect is creating a situation where your new tooth will successfully and safely be implanted so you can live life with your new tooth. If you need a dental implant, don’t just go to anyone. Visit our Brooklyn implant dentist and see how bone grafting along with our top notch procedures can improve your smile.
