If you are missing teeth, for whatever reason, a dental implant may be the best choice to restore your smile and protect your oral health. A dental implant is a series of procedures that replaces missing teeth. Patients need implants for a wide variety of reasons. However, the majority of our patients have lost their teeth due to sporting injuries, car accidents, or disease. At Oasis Dental we provide state of the art dental implants to help protect our patients’ dental health and improve the appearance of their smiles. Give us a call at 516-505-5010 to schedule your visit to Oasis Dental for your dental implant procedure.
When a person loses a single tooth, it leaves a gap which may cause the other teeth to move out of place. It also leaves the gum tissue and the jawbone unprotected and unstructured. This can cause permanent gum loss in the future. Dental implants are a safe solution to avoid long term dental damage. Many of the patients who want an implant are tired of hiding their smile to avoid being seen with a missing tooth. It’s a matter of looks for these patients. However, some patients who have been told they have to wear dentures choose to go with dental implants. When you get a tooth implanted into your gum, you do not have to remove these every night. Patients note that dental implants are more convenient and more comfortable than dentures.
Implantation can take several visits as your jaw will need to be prepared, then the posts implanted. Your jaw will need some time to recover before the crowns are placed. During your dental implant procedure, the dentist can replace either one tooth or multiple teeth. We can also use dental implants to replace a full set of dentures. The procedure uses surgically implanted screws or posts. This post is inserted into your jawbone where the tooth will go. The posts are made from titanium, which is generally accepted by your body. If you would like to see what a post looks like in person, make an appointment with Oasis Dental to see Dr. Chhabra or Dr. Arora today.
