Dental Implants Flatlands Dental Brooklyn, NY
Here at Flatlands Dental, our goal is to make sure that all of our patients know that dental Implants have also become quite affordable. If a cracked tooth appears below the gum line, then typically your tooth cannot be saved. If your tooth is pulled out, then there’s not much else you can do, except of course, get an implant. Dental Implants have come a long way and you don’t have to worry about smiling with a missing tooth anymore. You also don’t have to worry about taking out your dentures, or making sure your temporary bridge will fall out during dinner.
Dental implants can last a lifetime, and once they’re in your jawbone, they will act as your tooth’s new root. First, the jaw bone has to be determined whether it is strong enough for the implant. Once we do that, we then drill into your jawbone with bio-compatible titanium screws, which then act as the alternate root for the new tooth.
After 12-16 weeks, your jawbone fuses with the screw, and once the foundation is set, we can then take an impression of your tooth. The dentist will customize the abutment and create what’s called a dental crown which is placed on top of the implant.
After that, your next appointment will involve the customization of the abutment and place the crown on top of the implant after which the permanent crown will be placed and your your mouth will feel comfortable and secure.
If your jawbone lacks the necessary bone for an implant, then that dentist can perform a bone graft. Call Flatlands Dental Care today if you are considering a dental implant. We take pride in our work and want to make sure that you will be in good hands. Call us today for a free consultation.
