Sheepshead Bay Implants
Implants in Sheepshead Bay
Sheepshead Bay implants by Contemporary Dental Implant Centre can replace missing teeth with teeth that function and look the same as the natural teeth they replace. Using the latest in dental equipment and technology our practice’s can transform any smile into one you’ll be proud to show off to the world.
Teeth replacements can take several forms and upon completion of a comprehensive oral examination and the latest digital radiograph imaging our dentist will fully explain all your treatment options to you. The most common tooth replacement options are bridges, dentures or Sheepshead Bay implants. The amount of teeth that need to be replaced and their positioning will determine which option or combination of options is right for your particular case. When one tooth needs to be replaced or several teeth that are spread over different parts of the mouth need to be replaced often our doctor will recommend a dental implant. A titanium implant is surgically placed in the jawbone under the gum. Over time the bone and gum will heal and the implant will fuse with the bone making it very strong and secure. A post or abutment will then be placed on the implant and a crown will be placed on top of the post finishing off the new tooth.
The crown that tops Sheepshead Bay Implants forms the tooth’s new chewing surface. This implanted tooth will function and looks like the patient’s natural teeth. The crown will be fabricated to match the adjacent natural teeth in size, shape and color. A series of implants, minus the crowns can also be used to anchor a set of full or partial dentures, which gives them a very secure hold without the need for denture adhesives. Dentures that are attached to implants as anchors can either be permanently fixed or removable.
