Have you been thinking about getting dental implants to replace your missing teeth? If so, you are not alone. Dental implants are fast becoming a very popular way for patients to replace missing teeth because dental implants look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. If you would like to learn whether or not you are a good candidate for dental implants, you will want to visit us at our Metropolitan Family Dental practice. At our office, our implant dentist in Forest Hills will be able to meet with you and let you know if dental implants are a good treatment option for you.
Our expert and highly trained dentist is Dr. Michael Arma. When patients come to our dental practice for dental implants, Dr. Arma will first need to assess the health of their jawbone to see if they are a good candidate for dental implants. If your jawbone is healthy and thick enough to hold dental implants, it is most likely that you will be a good candidate for this procedure. Once it is determined that you will be getting dental implants, our implant dentist in Forest Hills will surgically insert a titanium dental implant root for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Dental implants can also be used to securely hold dentures in place. Once the dental surgery is complete, there will be a healing period of several months during which time the jawbone will fully heal and the dental implant root will fully fuse to the jawbone.
Once our implant dentist in Forest Hills determines that the healing has completed, he will permanently attach a porcelain crown to the top of each dental implant root. At this point, the dental implant is complete. You will be able to eat anything you want in total comfort. You will not need to worry that the dental implants will embarrass you in any way by loosening or shifting. Best of all, if you take good care of your dental implants with regular brushing and flossing, and with periodic dental cleanings, they should last you for a lifetime.
