When you have missing teeth it's embarrassing. You may smile less for pictures or when meeting new people. It can affect your confidence and make you feel less attractive than you really are. But there are other reasons why missing teeth can have a negative impact on your life, and that's the health of your mouth. Fortunately at NYC Smile Design in Manhattan, we offer dental implants to help remedy this issue to restore your smile and ensure lasting dental health.
You may have considered dentures or dental bridges to replace missing teeth. While these options have been used for decades, dentures can slip when you speak or when you chew and dental bridges required nearby teeth to be ground down to support the bridge, effectively weakening your existing natural teeth. Dental implants are an effective, long-lasting solution to replace your missing teeth. The many benefits of our dental implants include:
- Maintains bone structure after tooth loss
- Preserves the health of adjacent teeth
- Replaces loose-fitting dentures
- Distributes bite forces evenly throughout the mouth
- Functions and feels like natural teeth
- Improves speaking ability
- Improves facial appearance by preventing bone loss
At our office, Dr. Tabib and Dr. Mello use biocompatible titanium replacements as their preferred dental implant because they mimic the properties of natural teeth. Once the titanium implant is integrated into the jaw bone, the implant abutment is fitted with a porcelain crown that matches the shape and color of your existing teeth to renew your smile and ensure the overall health of your jaw bones and existing teeth.
