If you have experienced tooth loss, whether it is just one tooth or several, you know how seriously it can impact how you go about your daily activities. Even the simplest things, such as chewing your food or pronouncing your words properly can become a challenge. You may even find yourself becoming self-conscious about the appearance of your smile. Our East Flatbush cosmetic dentist and the rest of the staff at Brooklyn Dental Group understand the struggles associated with tooth loss and are here to offer you a solution: dental implants.
Dental implants are an excellent way to effectively replace that have been extracted or lost for any other reason. The only requirement is that you have strong bone tissue and good oral hygiene in order to keep the implants in an ideal environment. The implant itself is a small titanium post that is inserted directly into your jawbone. The metal of the implant, over a period of about three to six months, will eventually become integrated with your bone through a process aptly named osteointegration. This metal and bone combination will serve as a secure root for your new replacement tooth. After this process, our East Flatbush cosmetic dentist will attach a dental crown, or cap. The dental crown serves as your brand new artificial tooth. Crowns are typically made of durable, tooth-colored material such as porcelain or composite resin, so that it will blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile. After the dental implant restoration process has been completed, you will be amazed at the change that has taken place.
