Implant Dentist in Astoria
There has never been a better time to take advantage of dental implants and all the advantages that they have to offer. In just three simple steps, you can fill that empty space where you used to have a tooth here at Contemporary Dental Implant Centre. And best of all, you won’t have to accept the inherent drawbacks that are closely associated with workable, but imperfect options such as bridges and dentures. Start by scheduling a consultation with our implant dentist in Astoria. This will determine if you qualify for getting implants. Most patients do. You will need generally healthy gums and a jaw bone that is sufficiently thick to support the implant. And even then, bone grafting can be done to make sure that you still benefit from an implant. Imaging will be done, and you will have the chance to ask any questions that you have. Other possible complications for getting implants include diabetes and being a smoker, but your health and habits will be discussed at your appointment.
Once you have been cleared to move forward, the first step is the placement of a titanium post in your jaw by our implant dentist in Astoria. This serves three purposes. First, it serves as a replacement for your root, providing a strong and dependable foundation. Second, it prevents vital gum and bone tissue from atrophying. Third, preserves your normal facial contours. Your jaw bone will grow around the post and fuse with it. That takes a few months, after which step two will be to put a small healing color in, which also will keep the tooth portion steady. Which leads to part three, the tooth-colored crown, the visible part of your implant. Impressions are taken and used to create the tooth that will then be cemented to the post.
You will have a new tooth that looks, feels, and acts like a real one. No messy and unreliable adhesives to apply, as with dentures; no affecting your surrounding teeth as with bridges. And since the success rate of dental implants is about 98%, you can feel confident in undergoing the process. Why live with an incomplete smile when you have such a fantastic way to replace those missing teeth?
