Dental implants provide an innovative, attractive alternative to old-fashioned replacement teeth. The science behind implants is backed by extensive clinical research and practical application. The first dental implant placed in 1965 by Dr. Per-Ingvar Branemark, a Swedish orthopedic surgeon, set in motion a series of events that has revolutionized dentistry.
Today, patients in New York who want a long-term solution to replace missing teeth turn to dental implants to regain a comfortable, complete smile. The advantages of dental implants over replacement teeth of the past are numerous – and life changing. Dental implants provide the benefits of natural teeth for worry-free smiles that let you focus on your life – not your teeth.
The Structure of a Dental Implant
Essentially, a dental implant is a man-made substitute for a natural tooth root. A tiny titanium post placed in the jawbone begins a process called osseointegration, in which your bone tissue integrates and become one with the post. A small abutment sits atop the post and anchors a single implant crown that looks and feels like a natural tooth. Two or more implants placed in the jawbone provide a firm foundation for multiple replacement teeth in the form a bridge or denture.
