If you are currently missing one or more of your original teeth, dental implants at Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry of NY offer a permanent, effective alternative to removable bridges and dentures. Composed of pure titanium, dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into your jaw. All surgeries and implant placements are performed in our office by our New York implant dentist Dr Kapetanakos. By offering dental implants to our patients we are able to restore the function, appearance, and feel of missing teeth. Whether you require a single implant or a full set of implant supported dentures, Dr. Kapetanakos will create implants that are perfectly suited to your needs and goals. Although by no means a "quick fix," dental implants provide an ideal solution to missing teeth for many of our patients, allowing them to chew, speak, and smile with greater confidence.
Dental implants at Aesthetic and Implant Dentistry of NY have a number of practical advantages over traditional dentures and bridges. Because they are permanently anchored into your jaw, dental implants are completely secure and stable. They are self-supporting, which means that the structure of your existing teeth will not be affected in any way. In addition, they are remarkably convenient, requiring no special maintenance beyond the routine brushing, flossing, professional cleanings, and regular dental exams associated with natural teeth. In virtually every way, dental implants allow our patients to regain the control and assurance they had with their natural teeth.
If you are interested in having dental implant surgery, you will first meet with Dr. Kapetanakos, who will evaluate your oral and overall health to determine whether you are an appropriate candidate for the procedure. Most patients with generally good health are suitable for the procedure, as the body cannot reject dental implants as it can organ implants. Although the procedure can require anywhere from three months to a year to complete, Dr. Kapetanakos will provide you with a temporary bridge or dentures to minimize your inconvenience. For those patients willing or able to devote the necessary time, dental implant surgery is currently one of the safest and most consistently successful of all dental procedures.
