You want to fill that empty space where you used to have a tooth, and with our Muttontown dental implants, you can do so with a replacement that looks, feels, and even acts like your other teeth. There’s a good reason for that: they are made to mimic real teeth.
You might be considering a bridge or partial dentures, and while they will do a good job, our Muttontown dental implants are head and shoulders above them. Those other more traditional solutions only give you a prosthetic tooth that sits atop your gums. There is nothing anchoring it to your jaw, as is the case with natural teeth. And because of that, a fixed bridge needs to be held in place to your surrounding teeth, requiring the loss of tooth material from those neighboring teeth. Similarly, partial dentures need dental adhesive to keep them in place. And that is still not 100% reliable. Dentures can slide when you chew or speak. Our Muttontown dental implants don’t move. And they don’t affect your other teeth. They consist of two basic parts. First is the titanium post that is surgically placed in your jaw. The other is the tooth-colored crown that is cemented to the top of it. When the post is put in, there is a period of several months during which your bone tissue grows around and fuses with it. This creates a durable and dependable bond. And with proper care, there is every reason to expect an implant to last a long time, even for life. That’s an exciting prospect. And for replacing all of the teeth on one jaw, implants can even be used as a foundation for a newer and more advanced type of dentures.
Most people are good candidates for implants. Call us and arrange a convenient time to come in and be evaluated to see if they’re right for you.
