Implant Dentistry in New Rochelle
New Rochelle cosmetic dentist
Here at the office of Dr. Todd D. Wortman, the top New Rochelle cosmetic dentist
, implant dentistry is one of our main specialties. Implant dentistry is greatly beneficial for patients who have are missing teeth due to extractions, injuries or trauma, or any other issues that may have led to tooth loss. Tooth loss can make everyday activities—like simply eating, or speaking—to be much more challenging than they were when the smile was fully in tact. Fortunately, there are highly effective tooth replacement solutions today that can give you teeth that are remarkably similar to natural teeth. If you are interested in getting a dental implant restoration, you should schedule a consultation with our New Rochelle cosmetic dentist
as soon as possible. During this initial visit, Dr. Wortman can discuss the changes you would like to see with your smile, and also perform an in-depth examination in order to make sure that you meet the criteria necessary to begin a dental implant restoration. In order for dental implants to be successful, it is important that you have good dental health in general—that your gums are healthy and clean, especially. It is also important that you have a sufficient amount of bone mass in your jaw. Losing teeth can lead to bone degeneration in the jaw, so this can be a problem for many patients seeking dental implant restorations. Fortunately, there are procedures available that can help make you a better candidate for the restoration, such as bone grafting, periodontal cleaning, and more. Once there is a hospitable environment for the implant, we will put a small metal piece in place in the jawbone. This serves as the root for your new replacement tooth. After the implant is in, there will be a healing period of time where the metal from the implant joins with the natural bone in your jaw, and we will then attach a crown to the implant in order to complete the restoration.
