When you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you will want to consider getting dental implants. At our dental practice, Michael Acquista, D.D.S., patients are able to receive beautiful Bay Ridge dental implants from our top-notch dentist and implant specialist, Dr. Michael Acquista.
When you have missing teeth, there are several things you should consider when you are thinking about tooth replacement. Bay Ridge dental implants are particularly helpful for patients because not only do they restore the missing tooth, but they also restore the missing tooth root. This means that your jawbone will remain healthy and will not atrophy due to tooth loss. This will help you to retain a more youthful appearance which can be lost when you have missing teeth. Our dentist will meet with you to see if you are a good candidate for getting dental implants. It is important that your jawbone is healthy and thick enough so that it can successfully undergo the dental implant procedure. Once our dentist finds that you are a good candidate for the procedure, he will surgically insert one titanium dental implant root into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Sometimes, dental implants are also used to secure dentures or bridges. When you are using dental implants to replace your teeth on a one-to-one basis, there will be a waiting period of several months during which time your jawbone completely heals from the surgery and the dental implant root firmly fuses to the jawbone. Once this healing time is completed, our dentist will have a porcelain crown created that perfectly color-matches your adjacent teeth. The porcelain crown will then be permanently attached to the top of the dental implant and your dental implant will be complete. You will once again be able to eat, smile, and speak with total confidence.
