Dentist in Valley Stream
Valley Stream Dentist
When you have missing teeth, you may feel uncomfortable about showing off your smile. If one more back teeth are gone, chewing becomes difficult and that can affect optimal digestion. Furthermore, the other teeth on your jaw can shift, which can lead to discomfort and a misaligned occlusion (bite). Replacing missing teeth is very important, but equally so is what method you choose to do so. Here at Contemporary Dental Implant Centre, we are pleased to offer the most advanced method of full-tooth restoration available. Not only will you be able to laugh and speak with total confidence, and chew even the toughest foods, but with proper care, you can expect to get a lifetime of use out of dental implants.
There are three stages to getting an implant, once you have been examined and evaluated to be a good candidate for one. First, our dentist in Valley Stream will surgically place a titanium post in your jaw. It takes a few months for your jaw bone to grow around the post and fuse with it. When that’s done, the post will be firmly entrenched as a replacement for your old tooth’s root, something that neither a bridge nor dentures offer. The next step is the placement of a small healing collar attachment. And then finally, you will be measured for and fitted with a tooth-colored crown that will be cemented to the post and securely held in by the attachment. Your dental implant will not cause you to lose any tooth material from neighboring teeth, and there is no messy adhesive to contend with. Just a new tooth that looks, feels, and acts like a real one.
