Missing teeth can cause a lot of unpleasant side effects and embarrassment. Ultimately, lost teeth can also affect your overall oral health. To replace missing teeth, Daniil Payziyev, DDS, and the team at Dentistry on Park offer dental implants. Implants not only improve your smile's appearance but also make it easier to chew and speak. If you’re bothered by missing teeth, schedule a consultation for dental implants online or call the office in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, New York, today.
Dental implants use prosthetic teeth to replace teeth you’re missing from damage or decay.
The restoration process involves a titanium rod implant that goes into your jaw and ultimately fuses to the bone. The rod replaces your natural tooth root and anchors the artificial tooth in your mouth.
After you receive implants, you care for them like your natural teeth. With daily brushing, flossing, and routine dental cleanings, you can expect your dental implants to be long-lasting.
Dental implants are an alternative to full or partial removable dentures. The Dentistry on Park team offers consultations to determine if dental implants are right for you.
You should schedule an appointment for dental implants if you have one or more missing teeth that cause embarrassment or affect your ability to chew or speak.
The team customizes each of your implants to match the size, shape, and color of your natural teeth. They use the iTero® digital scanner to design your crown with a superior level of precision.
Once in place, your implants will look natural and immediately improve your smile’s appearance.
You can expect to need at least two office visits for your dental implant procedure. If you still have damaged or decayed teeth, the Dentistry on Park team can extract them and ensure you’re free of infection.
If your mouth is otherwise healthy, you can receive your rod implant simultaneously with your extraction. If you have an active infection, you may need antibiotics to clear it and some recovery time before you get your implant.
When your jawbone isn’t healthy enough to support the implant, Dr. Payziyev can strengthen it with a bone graft using a piece of bone from another part of your body or synthetic bone materials.
After the titanium rod goes into your jaw, it will take several months for the rod to fuse to your jawbone. Since everyone heals on their own timeline, the team will evaluate your progress and determine when your jaw is ready for the artificial tooth. Finally, they permanently fit the tooth to the rod, which looks and works like your natural tooth.
