Dental implants are the most advanced way to replace missing teeth. The impressive features of them are way beyond anything that traditional bridges and dentures are able to offer. At the office of Elliott Gutman, DMD, you can address the empty space where you used to have a tooth and be secure in the knowledge that the work is being done by an experienced and expert practitioner.
Missing teeth create a cosmetic deficit. There is no doubt about that. However, your other teeth can also shift, throwing your jaws out of sync, and possibly discomfort. In addition, gum and bone tissue may atrophy. And your facial contours will change absent the teeth you used to have. Traditional bridges and dentures can replace the teeth on the surface of your gums, but because there is no root beneath them, they will do nothing about those other issues. They are strictly on the surface. Our Inwood dental implants are complete teeth in every way. They have a full root that goes all the way down into your jaw, where it is anchored. It’s a titanium post, strong and durable, that is surgically placed, and which your jaw bone grows around and fuses with. The entire process takes just a few months. It is then that our Inwood dental implants are completed. The tooth-colored crown that will go on top is created at the dental lab from impressions of your mouth. The fit is precise and accurate, and the crown is cemented to the post. There is a high rate of success for implant procedures, approaching up to 98%. And if you take good care of yours, it could last you for a lifetime.
