5 Reasons to Consider Dental Implants

Are you a New York City resident who is missing multiple teeth? If so, you are likely researching your teeth replacement options and deciding between a bridge or multiple bridges, dentures, or dental implants. And you’re probably wondering what’s the best solution for you and your unique case, and how you can find a periodontist in New York City to perform your dental work. Maybe you’re leaning towards getting dental implants, but you’re not quite sure if they are the right option.

Well, you’ve come to the right place. New York City periodontist Dr. Kissel is here to explain 5 reasons why you should strongly consider getting dental implants to replace your missing teeth.

1.  Replace Your Missing Teeth with a Permanent Solution

Needing to have a lot of dental work can be time-consuming, and expensive. If you have to replace multiple teeth, you likely want to know that you won’t need to have additional procedures performed in another 5, 10 or 20 years. Rest assured; dental implants are a great solution for you! Dental implants are designed to be a permanent solution, offering you complete oral function and aesthetics for a lifetime.

2. Project Your Jawbone

When you lose a tooth or have one removed, you don’t just lose biting function and aesthetic appearance. Your teeth’s roots play an important part in oral hygiene by stimulating the growth of your jawbone. When you’re missing teeth, though, you place yourself at risk for bone resorption – a condition in which the jawbone shrinks and the surrounding gums deplete. When you suffer from bone resorption, even your cheeks can sink in, causing you to look older than you actually are.

3.  Keep Adjacent Teeth Intact

If you get dental bridges to replace your missing teeth, then the adjacent, healthy teeth that serve as bridge “anchors” will need to be drilled down to fit the crown that connects to the bridge. And if you are missing most of your teeth and considering getting dentures, then your remaining, healthy teeth will need to be pulled. Dental implants, which only replace your missing teeth, are the only teeth replacement option that protects your remaining teeth.

4.  Replace Multiple Adjacent Teeth with 1 Implant, or Receive a Full Mouth Restoration with All-on-4 Dental Implants

If you need to replace multiple teeth, you’re probably hoping to have as little dental work performed as possible to get the job done. If you have multiple adjacent teeth missing, you can get them replaced with just one titanium dental implant, using special replacement crowns that are connected. And, if you need a full mouth restoration, All-on-4 Dental Implants, which use only 4 titanium implant rods, can replace all 28 of your missing teeth. 

5.  Get the Most Natural-Looking Tooth Replacement Option Available

Perhaps the most popular reason that New York City dental patients choose dental implants are the way they look. With realistic, tooth-looking crowns placed over your titanium implant rods, dental implants are the most natural-looking tooth replacement option available.
