If you have a tooth that is knocked out or has fallen out and cannot be repaired, or you have a tooth that needs to be extracted, you’ll need to consider replacement options. While there are a few options to choose from, the most secure and long-lasting is dental implants. Dental implants are strong, hypoallergenic, biocompatible, and sturdy. This, along with other major benefits, makes them a very popular tooth or teeth replacement option.

Dental Implants in Forest Hills NY
Dental implants are titanium rods that are surgically implanted into the jawbone of the patient. The prosthetic is then attached via an abutment or multiple abutments. As the dental implants fuse to the jawbone of the patient, implants are considered “permanent.” With that said, the prosthetics aren’t. Still, if well cared for, prosthetics like dental crowns can last upwards of 20 years!
Dental implants are an excellent choice for patients that have a strong jawbone. If you don’t have a strong jawbone, you may be a candidate for a bone graft procedure. This will provide the bone density needed to install the titanium rods.
