We invite you to call Everest Dental PC to learn more about dental implants in White Plains, New York, and schedule your consultation!
Dental implants are reliable tooth replacements that provide the additional benefits associated with replacing both the natural tooth crown and the natural tooth root. This preserves and strengthens the bone structure surrounding the missing tooth while also providing a stable and lasting anchor for your prosthetic tooth or teeth.
A dental implant consists of two parts. The first part, known as your implant post, is a small titanium screw that is inserted into the jaw at the site of the missing tooth. In cases requiring an implant-supported denture or bridge, multiple implant posts will be placed strategically in the jawbone. This biocompatible post will integrate with the natural bone in a process called osseointegration during the healing period after your implant placement.
The second part of the dental implant, known as your implant restoration, is designed to replace the visible part of your missing tooth or teeth and is anchored into place by your implant post. Depending on your specific needs, this restoration could be a single implant crown, an implant-supported dental bridge, or a full or partial implant-supported denture. Our dentists will help you determine which restoration option is right for you during a thorough one-on-one consultation. Whatever you choose, you can rest assured that it will be custom-crafted to fit your mouth comfortably, function naturally and complete your smile beautifully.
Replacing your missing tooth is an important part of obtaining and preserving a healthy smile, and our dentists will be happy to discuss your options for dental implant restoration when you visit for your own consultation at our office. With good care, a dental implant can last a lifetime. Call or visit our office to schedule your appointment today.
