What are dental implants?

Dental implants are small metal screws that your Dental Arts of Brooklyn provider inserts into the sockets where you are missing teeth. The screws fuse with your bone after placement, providing a base for crowns, bridges, or implant-anchored dentures.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Dental implants offer various benefits, including:

  • Convenience
  • Durability
  • Confidence
  • Clearer speech
  • Easier biting and chewing

Getting dental implants may even improve your oral health. Filling an empty tooth socket with an implant can prevent bone loss and other similar issues.

Who can get dental implants?

You need healthy gums and a strong jawbone to get dental implants. If you have gum disease or low bone volume and your jaw can’t support the implants, the team completes a prerequisite treatment first. Depending on your needs, they might recommend scaling and root planing or a bone graft.

What does getting dental implants involve?

At Dental Arts of Brooklyn, getting dental implants takes a series of visits spaced over several months.

If your provider determines you can benefit from implants, they numb your mouth and insert a series of small metal screws into your empty tooth sockets. After the procedure, your mouth heals for a few months while the screws fuse with your bone.

After your mouth finishes healing, you visit Dental Arts of Brooklyn for the second time. The team takes digital impressions with an intraoral scanner and sends them to a dental lab. The lab uses your impressions to create custom implant restorations, like crowns, bridges, or implant-anchored dentures.

When the lab finishes your restorations, you visit Dental Arts of Brooklyn for the last time. The team attaches your restorations to the metal screws, restoring your smile to its near-original condition.

Are there other dental implant services?

  • Autogenous bone grafting (to increase bone volume in the lower jaw)
  • Implant site development
