Why Dental Implants?

At the Center for Cosmetic Dentistry, your oral health is our top priority! Which is why we feel that it is our responsibility to our patients to educate them on what is good and bad for their oral health. Obviously, tooth loss is not a good thing for the health of your mouth. Many people believe that tooth loss is the worst thing that can happen, and once it does, there’s nothing more to be done – this is not true! When you lose a tooth and don’t replace it with a tooth replacement option, the bone in your jaw becomes weak and can begin to deteriorate. Fortunately, dental implants offer us a way to give you back your teeth, and to help you keep your mouth in tip-top condition!

At our Smithtown Long Island, NY office we place dental implants to help keep your mouth happy and healthy!

What A Dental Implant Is

A dental implant is a titanium post that we surgically place in your jaw bone. We use a titanium post because the human body doesn’t mind the presence of titanium and will grow around it to form a strong mechanical bond in a process known as osseointegration. Once the implant has healed in your jaw, we will place a tooth restoration on top of it that you will be able to use just like a real tooth. Dental implants can be used to support single tooth replacements and multi-tooth replacements like bridges and even full arch solutions such as All-On-4.

The Benefits of Dental Implants Are Spectacular!

Other tooth replacement options like partial and full dentures and bridges have the ability to replace teeth in form, but often not in function. Further, these other tooth replacement options aren’t as versatile as your natural teeth – this is where implants shine. Dental implants replace your natural teeth in both form and function. They allow you to eat all the same foods that you would with natural teeth. Dental implants aren’t removable. They even stimulate the bone in your jaw in the same way that the root of your natural tooth would, which encourages bone growth. Dental implants are versatile and can last you’re the rest of your life if you take good care of them!

Dental implants look great! Many times, you can tell when someone is wearing dentures. This is partly because of the way dentures fit into the mouth. Because implants are permanent, we can give you the comfort and confidence that denture wearers don’t have.

With dental implants, you will never have to worry about denture adhesive ever again. Eat what you want, when you want and feel confident enough to smile afterwards.

Because dental implants are permanently placed in your mouth, they provide a wide range of benefits that other tooth replacement options cannot offer you. Some of the benefits of dental implants include:

  • Vastly improved comfort
  • Easier to eat
  • Improved self-esteem
  • Very durable and long lasting
  • High degree of convenience
  • Improved ability to speak
  • Improved appearance
