Dental Implants NYC
Dental implants are the best way to replace missing teeth and they offer a permanent fix to hold removable partial or complete dentures in place. Dental implants replace your entire tooth, using artificial roots and teeth. Implants are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw. After the implant is placed, an articifical tooth is added. The teeth attached to implants are made to match your other teeth so no one will know that you had replcements.

How are Dental Implants NYC placed?
The process of getting implants requires a number of visits over several months. It starts with X-rays and impressions which are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself onto the bone. Depending on the type of implant, a second surgery may be required in order to place the “post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place. With other implants the post and anchor are already attached and placed at the same time.
After healing takes place, the artificial tooth is made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor. Finally, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing stability and comfort to the patient.
