Flushing Dental Implants

Experienced Dental Implant Specialists in Flushing

Did you know that the loss of permanent adult teeth is something that plagues an overarching majority of people in the United States? In fact, by the time that most of the population turns seventeen years of age, over 7% will have lost at least one tooth. As their age increases, people only become more likely to lose their permanent teeth. The loss of adult teeth not only affects your ability to eat, chew, and swallow, but it also greatly damages your ability to speak correctly, as enunciation is affected by missing teeth. Bone structure weakens, gums can recede, and of course, one’s quality of life and confidence greatly diminishes.

Our doctors at NY Smile Creators are passionate about helping our patients have strong oral health as well as the confidence to be able to express themselves through smiling and speaking clearly. In order to aid our patients with both of these aspects, we offer premium dental implants in Flushing. These implants will take the place of any gaps made by lost teeth. Not only do they greatly support your health overall, but they will enhance your life's full quality. Dental implants are optimal for giving you a natural, beautiful, and truly joyful smile.

The Process of Getting a Dental Implant

The way that an implantation works is that our skilled dentists design a synthetic tooth, which is made to fit directly in the space of your gums where your previous tooth originally sat. The root will connect to the jawbone, and then a crown will be affixed at the top. In contemporary dental practice, the root is made out of titanium while the crown is made out of a natural, tooth-colored composite resin. Your dental implant will be permanently attached within your jawline, giving the benefit of maximum support.

Throughout the actual process of the installation, your dentist will carefully place in the root first. Once the root has been embedded safely into your empty gap, we will put the natural-looking crown directly on top of the root, which safely fixes the whole tooth implant in a secure position. As soon as the implant has been completed, you are able to immediately get back to doing the things you love. You can talk with your friends, chew bubblegum, sing loudly in the shower, and snack on your favorite crunchy foods, from popcorn to apples, just as you did normally. Best of all these, our implants can endure for a lifetime, so long as you care for them properly with regular brushing and flossing.

Who is a Candidate for Dental Implants? 

Candidates for dental implants are individuals who have one or more missing teeth and are looking for a long-term, durable solution for tooth replacement. Key factors that make someone a potential candidate include good overall oral and general health, as well as adequate bone density and quality in the jawbone to support the implant. Patients should also have healthy gums and be committed to maintaining proper oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups. Age is not a limiting factor, as dental implants can be appropriate for adults of all ages. A thorough evaluation by our Flushing cosmetic dentist is necessary to determine candidacy and develop a personalized treatment plan. 

What are the advantages of dental implants over other tooth replacement options?

Dental implants offer several distinct advantages over other tooth replacement options:

  • Natural Appearance and Feel: Dental implants closely resemble natural teeth in both appearance and function. They provide a seamless and natural-looking smile while allowing for comfortable biting and chewing, making them indistinguishable from real teeth.
  • Durability and Longevity: Dental implants are renowned for their durability and longevity. With proper care, they can last a lifetime, unlike traditional dentures and bridges, which may require replacement or adjustment over time.
  • Preservation of Jawbone Density: Implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing bone loss that often occurs when teeth are missing. This preservation of jawbone density contributes to better oral health and facial aesthetics compared to other options that do not provide this benefit. 

How Do I Care For My Dental Implants?

There are several steps you will need to take in order to maintain a healthy smile with dental implants:

  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day, with a toothbrush that has soft bristles
  • Utilize a dentist-approved toothpaste
  • Use an interdental brush to clean hard-to-reach areas
  • Floss on a regular basis
  • Avoid foods that could potentially damage your implants, such as hard candy

Commonly Asked Questions

How long does the dental implant process take?

The process of getting a dental implant typically takes a few months, with the initial surgery for placing the implant root taking about 1-2 hours. After this, there is a healing period of 3-6 months to allow the implant to fuse with the jawbone before the permanent crown is attached.

Are dental implants suitable for everyone?

While dental implants are a great option for many individuals, not everyone is an immediate candidate. Factors such as overall oral and general health, bone density, and gum health play a role in candidacy. A thorough evaluation by a dental professional is necessary to determine if implants are the right choice for you.

Can dental implants be used to replace multiple missing teeth?

Yes, dental implants can be used to replace multiple missing teeth. Whether it's a single tooth or an entire arch, dental implants are a versatile and effective solution for restoring a natural-looking and functional smile.

Do dental implants require special care?

While dental implants are not susceptible to decay, they still require regular oral hygiene practices to maintain their longevity. This includes brushing at least twice a day, flossing, and attending regular dental check-ups. Your dentist may also recommend specific care instructions based on your individual needs.

What are the potential risks or complications of dental implants?

While dental implants have a high success rate, like any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications. These can include infection, damage to surrounding teeth or blood vessels, and implant failure. It's important to discuss any concerns with your dental provider before undergoing the procedure.
