Dental Implants in Tribeca, NYC
Dental implants provide a stable foundation for replacement teeth that function, feel, and look like natural teeth. Implants help preserve and maintain the structure of the jaws and face. Individuals can once again eat, chew, speak, and smile comfortably after restoration through implant dentistry. Dental implants have become the gold standard for replacing missing teeth.
Dental implants are titanium screws or posts placed in the jawbone to replace the roots of missing teeth. After the implants fuse with the jawbone, crowns or dental prosthetics are attached to replace the visible portion of the missing teeth. Dental implant surgery requires knowledge, skill, and experience to place each titanium implant in the precise position to provide optimal support for dental restoration while preserving bone growth.
Dental Implant Procedure
The surgical procedure for tooth implants is performed in one of our surgical suites by an experienced oral surgeon. Depending on how many implants are placed and the type of sedation used, the process can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours. After surgery, temporary crowns may be placed over the implants.
The titanium implants heal with the surrounding bone over several months, becoming a part of the jawbone and providing a stable foundation for permanent dental restorations. When the area is sufficiently healed, your dentist or prosthodontist attaches your crown or dental prosthetic. On our Overview of Implant Placement page, you can learn more about the dental implant procedure, including recovery time and what to expect while healing.
