Replacing Teeth in New York, NY
Your issue is that you’re missing one or several teeth. Dental Ambitions can help. Dr. Byun and his team of specialists provide patients with a comprehensive solution to one or more missing teeth.
This procedure involves placing a biocompatible titanium post to replace an absent root and fuses with the surrounding bone. This generates support for existing dental structure and the prosthetic replacement teeth.
Once these implant posts have integrated into the jaw, Dr. Byun adds a restoration. Dental implants are versatile in their application:
Single-unit crowns replace a tooth missing anywhere in the smile. An implant post is placed into the jawbone where the natural tooth root once existed to generate support for the new crown.
Multi-unit bridges replace a greater number of teeth using two to three implants placed in optimal locations for best support. Whereas a traditional bridge would require altering existing teeth for support, implant-supported bridges are supported directly by the jawbone.
Implant-supported dentures restore the entire bite by replacing an arch using four to eight posts. A denture is placed atop these posts to complete the restoration.
Our practice offers the preliminary procedures required to enable eligibility for dental implants. Our in-house periodontist conducts the necessary bone grafting, sinus lift, or ridge augmentation to ensure patients are in good-standing health prior to receiving dental implants.
Why Replace the Roots of Teeth?
Missing teeth cause a multitude of issues. In addition to the esthetic detriments, a single missing tooth can compromise the dental system, causing existing teeth to shift out of alignment and the bone to experience atrophy. The jawbone goes through a process of resorption and slowly deteriorates over time, leading to accelerating signs of aging.
When you receive a dental implant for one tooth or several, not only will this improve appearance but enhance performance as well. It also helps to preserve the current dental structure.
