Understanding Dental Implants

Posted .

Losing teeth, no matter the reason, is rarely a good experience. In fact, most would call it one of the most difficult things you’ll ever have to deal with. Without teeth, everyday tasks become challenging. You really don’t notice how much you use them until you lose one.

The good news is that if you do lose a tooth, you’re not out of luck. Thanks to advancements in dental technology you have more options than ever before when it comes to tooth restoration. Dental implants are increasingly popular – and there are good reasons why. Let’s look at a few.

What are they?
When you see a dentists for implants, you’ll learn that implants are nothing more than a titanium post, inserted directly into your gums. The post is then covered up with a dental crown. You end up with a tooth that looks so real only a professional like Dr. Yakov Royzman and Dr. Karina Zaygermakher can tell the difference.

Why implants?
A question we often get here at Professional Dental & Implant Center in New York, New York, is why you’d want implants. After all, getting a titanium insert in your gums doesn’t sound like much fun, does it?it’s not, but implants are so effective that our team feels they’re worth the effort.

You do have to care for your implants like you would your real teeth. Refraining from doing so will result in the same oral health problems that led to your need for implants in the first place.
