Replacing lost teeth is essential, not just for your appearance, but for oral wellness. When you are missing one or more teeth, your others may shift, causing discomfort and possibly leading to the misalignment of your jaws. Chewing can also be less efficient, particularly if the teeth used to be back ones. Here at Bayside Dental Group, we proudly offer the expert placement of implants, the single most beneficial way to restore your complete smile effectively.
Our Fresh Meadows dental implants consist of two basic parts. There is the tooth portion, visible above the gum line, and the root portion that is not visible beneath. In fact, the root, which is a titanium post, becomes securely anchored in your jaw bone. The way this occurs is that when surgically placed in your jaw, the tissue there grows around the post, eventually fusing with it. Once that has happened, you now have a completely dependable foundation, just like a natural root. Completing our Fresh Meadows dental implants means taking impressions. A tooth-colored crown is fashioned from them, and that crown is subsequently cemented to the post. Unlike with fixed bridges or partial removable dentures, they stand on their own. You won’t have to deal with any messy adhesive nor lose material from surrounding teeth. Most important, your implant will not slide around or make you feel awkward about talking or chewing. You can chew even the toughest foods without a single worry. And so long as you maintain it well, you can get many years of service out of it, possibly up to a full lifetime.
