At the Manhattan smile makeover practice of Dr. Beshar, dental implants are the ultimate in replacement teeth that look and feel just like natural teeth. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is embedded into the patient’s jaw and fitted with a replacement tooth. Dental implants can help our patients who are missing one or more teeth smile, speak, and chew with confidence because, unlike removable dentures, they are permanent and never need to be removed for cleaning, eating, or sleeping. If you are missing one or more teeth, read on to learn more about dental implants and why they could be the smile makeover solution you have been looking for, and don’t forget to check out our Smile Gallery to see some of the beautiful smiles Dr. Beshar has created with the help of dental implants.
Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer a number of benefits over other tooth replacement options such as dentures and are in high demand at our Manhattan practice. Not only can dental implants remedy any cosmetic issues that may come with missing teeth, but they can also restore strength and function, prevent bone loss, and improve speech. In addition to being the most natural-looking and –feeling tooth replacement options available, dental implants are also the most convenient. They never need to be removed for cleaning, sleeping, or eating and a strong daily oral hygiene routine is all patients need to keep their implants strong and beautiful for a lifetime.
The Dental Implants Process
The dental implants process takes some time, but our Manhattan-area patients feel that this investment of time is well worthwhile because it yields absolutely stunning results that last a lifetime. During your first dental implants appointment, Dr. Beshar will conduct minor oral surgery to prepare your jawbone for the metal screws which will act as artificial tooth roots, then insert the screws into your jawbone. Once this is complete, the process of osseointegration, where the artificial tooth roots actually become fused to your jawbone, will begin. Full osseointegration will take a few months, and then you will be ready to return for a second and final dental implants visit to our Manhattan office.
Once the dental implants have become naturally fused to your jawbone, you will return to Dr. Beshar’s office to have custom-crafted artificial tooth or teeth attached. When properly done, dental implants look and feel just like natural teeth, and unlike removable dentures, you will never need to remove your replacement teeth for cleaning or eating.
In some cases, patients opt for implants that are a few shades whiter than their natural teeth. That way, when they undergo tooth whitening as a part of a smile makeover plan, their natural teeth look as bright and white as their implants do.
