If you have missing teeth or are at risk of losing teeth, you’re probably looking at options for replacing those teeth and restoring your smile. Dentures and bridges have been and remain a popular option, but dental implants can be your best chance at recovering both the look and feel of your natural teeth. World of Dentistry offers quality dental implants to patients in Brooklyn who are looking for a strong, natural-looking smile after teeth have been lost.
Unlike dentures or bridges, which are prosthetics that replace the actual teeth, dental implants are inserted directly into the jawbone. They are small titanium posts that, after they have been placed, emerge from the gums a small portion. The tooth restoration (usually fixed dentures) is then fixed to the implant. One implant can support multiple restorations, so each lost tooth does not require its own implant.
Although dentures and bridges are effective at serving their purpose of restoring the appearance and function to your teeth, they have a few problems. The biggest issue is that they are not as stable as natural teeth are and can become loose if certain foods are eaten. Additionally, the fit can change over time, and you will need either adjustment to the prosthetic or an entirely new prosthetic.
Dental implants, on the other hand, provide a much more stable base for the dental prosthetic. Because they are surgically inserted into the bone, they essentially replace the tooth roots. The result is that they feel and act like the tooth roots and create a strong foundation for the tooth replacement, allowing you to eat and speak as you did before any teeth were lost. Dental implants also last a lifetime, so you will never have to worry about having them replaced. At World of Dentistry, we are proud to create restorations that look natural, so you can smile, eat, and speak with confidence.
