Nearly 40 million Americans have lost some or all of their teeth, a condition that can negatively impact self-confidence, diet, and speech. In fact, studies show that people without teeth do not live as long as those with a complete set of healthy teeth. Bridges, partials, and dentures can be troublesome prosthetic appliances. Fortunately, there is another option.
Dental implants are the closest tooth replacement to a natural tooth. Because they have a solid root, the dental implant post, and an aesthetic crown, dental implants look and feel like natural teeth.
Commack Dental places and restores dental implants in our Commack dental office. A dental implant is a metallic titanium post inserted into the jawbone. Titanium isn’t recognized by the body’s immune system, so it is accepted and integrated into the jawbone for a solid foundation. Once the anchor is secure, we will fabricate a natural-looking crown to blend with your existing dentition and place it atop the dental implant post.
Dental Implants Can
- Anchor bridges or dentures for a solid, permanent prosthetic
- Restore proper chewing ability, which leads to a better diet and improved overall health
- Eliminate tooth shifting
- Improve speech
- Look and feel like your natural teeth
- Increase self-confidence when talking and smiling.
Patients in Long Island, Smithtown, Huntington, and surrounding areas can schedule a comprehensive evaluation in our Commack dentist office. Your oral condition will dictate whether dental implants are the best option for you.
