Dental implants are literally the underpinning of many prosthodontic procedures. An implant is a post that replaces a tooth’s root when the natural root is missing or damaged. Once an implant is placed and healed, a dental surgeon can use it to place a tooth restoration that acts, feels, and looks similar to your natural teeth. For dental implants in NYC, along with crowns, All-on-4, hybrid dentures, and other restorations, Dental West on the Upper West Side is your go-to.
We provide most surgical procedures in-house, including extractions, grafting, and dental implants. We will be with you each step of the way, ensuring that you understand your treatment journey.
Who Needs a Dental Implant?
Anyone with a missing or severely damaged tooth (or teeth) may be a dental implant candidate. While there are other ways to replace teeth, these posts are the gold standard. They support crowns, which are individual tooth replacements; bridges, which are three or four units of teeth, as well as a variety of full-arch prosthetics, including overdentures, All-on-4, All-on-6, hybrid dentures, and ceramic full-arch fixed restorations.
How are Dental Implants Placed?
The surgery to place implants is an outpatient procedure, and you’ll likely be able to return to normal activity the day after.
Your dentist will surgically place the implant post. The crown or other final prosthesis will be placed as soon as the bone has healed. In the meantime, you will have the choice to wear a temporary prosthetic tooth. Once the restoration is placed, you’ll be as good as new!
If you have severely damaged teeth, a missing tooth or missing teeth, call Dental West on NYC’s Upper West Side today to learn about how implants can restore function and beauty to your smile.
