What are Dental Implants?

March 6, 2013

If you’re missing a tooth, the health of your smile is at risk until it is repaired. Once you lose a tooth, your risk for losing more teeth increases. Also, your remaining teeth can shift around into the empty space and result in a misaligned bite, and risk losing part of your jaw bone. Dental implants from South Shore Dental Care are a great way to help restore a missing tooth and prevent negative consequences to your smile.

When you have a dental implant, a titanium post will be inserted into your jaw to create the base for your implant. The post will bond with your jaw bone over time, mimicking the root of a natural tooth. A crown will be custom made to resemble your natural teeth and placed on top. At our office, we can both place and restore your dental implants, so you don’t have to go to anyone else.

If you take care of your implant just as you would your natural teeth, with proper brushing, flossing and dental visits, it can last you a long time. We want all our patients to have beautiful, healthy smiles, and dental implants is a great way to do so. If you’re interested or want to know more, call us to schedule your consultation.

At South Shore Dental Care, we’re committed to providing our patients with a wide array of dental services, high-quality cosmetic dentistry, and up to the minute dental technology. Our Massapequa dental office serves patients from Long Island, Merrick, Bellmore, and Wantagh. Call us today to schedule your appointment.
