If you have experienced tooth loss or have had teeth extracted, you know how difficult it can be for a number of reasons. Beyond the practical complications involving eating and speaking, you may have also taken a blow to your self confidence because of your missing teeth and the impact that loss has on the aesthetics of your smile. Missing teeth can also be detrimental to the underlying bone in your jaw, causing it to recede into itself. If you are missing teeth for any reason, you should consider the possibilities of a dental implant restoration provided by our Bay Ridge implant dentist, the experienced and talented Dr. Gary Herskovits.
Dental implant restorations are composed of two main parts – a titanium post that acts as a tooth root and a tooth restoration, like a dental crown. The first is a small metal post that is put in place among the rest of your natural, underlying jawbone. The metal will serve as the root of your new replacement tooth and keep it secure in your mouth. After the metal becomes fully formed among the surrounding bone, so as to provide the sturdiest foundation, our Bay Ridge implant dentist will then attach a color matched and fully customized dental crown, which is the replacement tooth part of the restoration and completes the process. Many patients have found that their dental implant restorations have vastly improved their daily quality of life, as well as their confidence. Dr. Herskovits would love to provide you with the same results with your own dental implant restoration.
