Dental implants are a very popular teeth treatment Oceanside Centre NY
to replace missing teeth because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. There are many different ways that dental implants are now used to help replace missing teeth. Most frequently, a dental implant will be provided to our patient, and the missing tooth will be restored, in a treatment that has several stages to it. In the first stage of treatment, we will surgically insert a titanium dental implants root into the jawbone. The gum is then replaced over the sealed implant and there is a healing period during which time the dental implant will completely fuse to the jawbone. Bone will actually grow around the implant and this fusion process will allow the implant to serve as an extremely solid base for the new implant tooth restoration. This healing process can take several months depending upon the location of the implants, the patient’s individual healing ability, and other factors. If the patient wishes, our dentist can provide you with a temporary tooth replacement that can be worn over the implant site during this healing process. Once it is determined that the healing has completed, the gum will be opened, and a temporary healing cap is placed into the body of the implant. Our patient will then return to their regular dentist who will replace the healing cap with a post, and a permanent replacement tooth will be fabricated. Sometimes the interim step at our office is not necessary as the implant already has an extension piece attached.
