Manhattan Cosmetic Dentist Answers Common Questions About Dental Implants
New York, NY – At Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry, Dr. Marianna Farber offers the option of replacing missing teeth and rejuvenating smiles with dental implants. With many advantages over traditional tooth replacement techniques, such as dentures or bridges, Dr. Farber says dental implants can provide both a beautiful smile and superior stability without the need for adhesives or pastes. Once informed about the benefits of dental implants, her patients typically choose this innovative method of tooth replacement for a permanent solution to missing teeth that can restore both form and function.
For patients interested in dental implants who do not have enough bone to be a candidate for a full set, Dr. Farber says implant-supported dentures can still offer many of the same advantages. According to the Manhattan cosmetic dentist, “Using a small number of carefully placed dental implants, these titanium posts act as anchors to securely hold your denture without the inconvenience of pastes or adhesives.” As an alternative solution, Dr. Farber notes that in certain cases bone grafting can strengthen the jawbone and allow for safe and effective placement of dental implants.
The success rate for dental implants is very high, and Dr. Farber sites that 96-99% of patients achieve their desired results. However, she does state that there are certain risk factors patients should be informed of before deciding upon the surgery. Dr. Farber informs her patients that in addition to having sufficient jawbone density to receive the implant, men and women who are in good overall health and who do not smoke cigarettes typically have an increased likelihood of success.
After Dr. Farber places the titanium post of the dental implant, patients usually undergo a recovery period of about 4-6 months before receiving the final custom-made crown to finish the tooth. “During this time, a temporary crown can be worn to fill the gap in your smile,” she says. Dr. Farber goes on to explain that during dental implant recovery, the titanium post fuses to the jawbone, creating a stable artificial root for the crown. For a seamless and natural esthetic, the crowns used at Contemporary & Esthetic Dentistry are skillfully designed to match the shade and shape of the adjacent teeth. Once the crown is attached to the titanium post, the dental implant process is complete, and Dr. Farber’s patients can chew, drink, and speak just as if they had never lost a tooth.
