Dental implants are versatile and strong dental restorations that are used to replace missing teeth. They are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the mouth to fill missing tooth gaps. Over time, the dental implant posts fuse with the jaw bone and act as a natural tooth. At Corbin Dental, Dr. Bruce and Dr. Richard Corbin offer dental implants to patients in Oyster Bay, NY. Drs. Corbin always make sure that patients become great candidates for implant treatment. If you have a tooth or gum infection that is affecting your smile, Drs. Corbin can help restore health to your smile and replace your missing teeth.
Dental Implant Benefits
There are a variety of advantages of restorative care with dental implants. Used alone or to secure a bridge or denture, dental implants:
- Improve Health of Teeth and Gums: Implants support the health of the teeth and gums because they restore the gap left by missing teeth. Patients with one or more missing teeth are more prone to problems like gum disease and tooth decay. In addition, patients who have lost their teeth due to infection are at risk of further tooth loss.
- Look and Feel Real: Implants are capped off with a dental crown, which is custom-made to blend in with the shape and shade of natural teeth. Crowns are durable, tooth-colored caps that also support a patient’s bite.
- Make Speaking and Eating Easier: Even with removable bridges or dentures, patients cannot easily eat hard or chewy foods. Single implants or implant-secured bridges and dentures allow patients to eat the foods they love with full bite function.
- Have a High Success Rate: The success rate of dental implants is about 95%. Our dentists ensure that patients are in great oral health prior to their implant treatment. They also make sure that patients are not smoking or using tobacco during implant treatment, as this can hinder the healing process.
