Dental implants are permanent and immediate solution for replacing missing teeth. They look, feel and function just like your own natural teeth. At Port Jefferson Smiles in Port Jefferson Station, New York, we have successfully performed dental implantation for years, helping patients restore dental functions and quality of life.
Dental Implant Procedure
Dental implants are placed in stages. After consultation and diagnosis, your dentist at Port Jefferson Smiles will surgically place the titanium post, which serves as the base for an implant. Titanium is highly-compatible and fuses with our jaw bone through the process of osseointegration, which takes place over a period of several months.
Abutment, which serves as the connector between the base and the dental crown, is secured to the posts. A prosthetic dental crown is then securely screwed to the abutment. Dental crowns are individualized and manufactured to match your natural teeth using durable materials.
At Port Jefferson Smiles, we can replace your missing teeth with implant-supported restorations. Our highly-experienced dental implant team will restore your chewing ability, teeth stability and prevent further deterioration of your jawbone. Every patient is unique so dental implant treatment may vary from patient to patient. For more accurate timeframe, schedule your dental implant consultation today.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Dental implants are very versatile and can be used to replace missing teeth or as support to anchor other dental appliances, such as bridges and dentures. Missing teeth impacts your mouth functions and quality of life. If not replaced, missing teeth can compromise health of remaining teeth and your facial structure may collapse. This is why replacing missing teeth is important to your overall health. With dental implants, you will regain your healthy smile and self-esteem.
