Live Better with Dental Implants
Dental implants replace teeth that are beyond treatment. Our NYC dentists place a dental implant into your jaw bone, which over time fuses with the bone and acts as a stable foundation for a replacement tooth. You’ll restore your teeth’s function and aesthetics and improve the quality of your life.
If you’re a good candidate for dental implants, our dentists will generate a custom treatment plan and explain the process in detail. You’ll be attended by the highly capable Dr. Victoria Laor and the JBL NYC team.
Function and aesthetics with a true replacement with your tooth.
Dental implants function like natural roots to support the new teeth (crown), so when several teeth are missing it isn’t necessary to replace them all. In many cases a bridge will suffice.
Once the implant is in place, we recommend a period of 2-3 months of osteo-integration to allow the bone to ‘attach’ itself to the implant.
1. First, our dental implant team in NYC assesses whether you’re a good candidate for an implant by examining the quantity and quality of the bone and using x-rays or a dental CAT scan to determine the location and the type of restoration that can go over it.
2. If the location is in your aesthetic zone (toward the front of your mouth) and you have a high smile line, it’s important that the implant be positioned perfectly. Placing an implant is a time consuming surgical procedure.
3. After the original tooth is removed, the area requires a three to six month healing period before the implant restoration can go in.
4. During this healing time, the bone grows in and around the titanium implant creating a very strong support. However, if the bone or surrounding tissue doesn’t grow in as well as hoped, there are grafting procedures that can help with the soft tissue aesthetics.
Implants are right for you if you’re missing one or more teeth and have enough bone in the area to accommodate the anchorage of the implant(s). If you don’t have enough bone to do the job, a bone graft might remedy the issue.
