What Are Dental Implants, And Do You Qualify For Them?
Dental Implants Can Really Change Your Smile And Your Life In Just One Day!
Tooth loss is extremely common among adults, especially as we age. Rather than living with the discomfort and hassles of dentures, you can enjoy a more natural alternative by choosing dental implants provided by Advanced Dental Care. Dental implants can replace one or more missing or damaged teeth with a permanent solution that leaves your smile looking 100% natural and allows you to eat the foods you love again – in as little as one day. So why wait any longer to regain your smile and self confidence?
What Are Dental Implants?
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root, typically a titanium screw, that is placed into your jaw bone to hold a replacement tooth, bridge or denture to restore multiple missing teeth. Contact Advanced Dental Care to help you decide if dental implants are right for you.
Dental implants are a valuable alternative to an uncomfortable prosthesis. The implants themselves are small screws produced from titanium that serve a similar purpose to the roots of natural teeth. They are fused to the jawbone and support over dentures and dental bridges, helping them to perform like our natural teeth would. Once the implants are put in place, you’ll be able to replace anything from one tooth to a whole set with ease.
Given the numerous benefits and aesthetic qualities dental implants offer, they have become the preferred method of tooth replacement today.
What Are The Benefits Of Dental Implants?
Dental implants are widely regarded as the best treatment for loose dentures. Permanent dental implants are designed to make dentures much more secure and enable you to smile, eat and talk confidently. Advanced Dental Care can assist you if you have been thinking about investing in implants. The implants act as a foundation for replacement teeth. They won’t decay and are designed to last for the rest of your life. Implants can be used in conjunction with various dental procedures to improve our oral health. Once they are installed, you’re much less likely to face problems with slippage and discomfort.
What Are The Steps For Getting Dental Implants In Brooklyn, NY?
The initial step is to meet with Advanced Dental Care for a free consultation. At this consultation, the doctor and you will determine your needs, assess your oral health, review your medical history, and discuss treatment options in order to create a customized treatment plan just for you. We’ll also discuss costs, financing options if necessary, and timing.
If you decide that dental implants are right for you and would like to proceed, next is a pre-procedure exam with Advanced Dental Care. This exam involves an X-ray or a 3D CT scan and may include taking models of your teeth to determine the ideal treatment for your condition. Fortunately, we have this technology in our office, so you won’t have to visit another dental office. This exam can usually be completed in less than an hour. Once completed, you are ready to schedule your surgery.
On the day of surgery, you’ll come to our office and begin by discussing the sedation options, which is the medication to help your relax or even sleep during the procedure. During the actual surgery, any teeth, if required, will be removed. Next the actual dental implants are placed in the jaw bone. Then replacement teeth are secured onto the implants. It’s important you know that you will leave the office with your teeth! This is why we can say “teeth in a day.”
Following your surgery, there is a recovery period where the implants will need to heal and fully integrate with your bone and tissue before Advanced Dental Care can connect the permanent bridges or dentures. It will usually take between 3-6 months for the adjustment to be complete.
Who Typically Gets Dental Implants?
Those likely to benefit from dental implants include people who have been experiencing problems with conventional dentures or simply people who have lost as much as a single tooth. They make life easier for those that have been finding it difficult to chew and enjoy meals and can slow down the process of tissue and bone loss in the jaw. What’s more is that dental implants can even provide a more youthful appearance due to the way that they will give your facial structure a lift. Furthermore, they will help you to speak more clearly.

Types of dental implant placement:
- Single Tooth Replacement – a single implant is placed in the location of the missing tooth. After the implant has healed, a cosmetic crown is attached.
- Multiple Teeth Replacement – multiple implants are placed in the area of the missing teeth. When the implants have healed, a bridge is attached to the dental implants.
- All-on-Four – provides complete support for patients with dentures. “Four” refers to the number of implants that are placed strategically within the patient’s mouth.
- Implant-Retained Dentures – offers a fixed solution to removable dentures by placing permanent implants that the dentures can securely attach to.
- Mini Dental Implants – smaller dental implants that are used to support dentures. They are near identical to regular dentures but cost significantly less and do not require an involved surgery.
