Dental Implant Benefits
There are no other dental restorations that offer the strength, endurance and stability of the dental implant. The important function of a dental implant is in the implant itself, though you will not see the implant, its presence is going to make a significant impact. Though many dentists may tell you that they can place an implant, the rate of success is dependant on having it done right. Trusting an Oral Surgeon, such as Dr. Del Valle or Dr. Shahgoli to surgically place your implant can make a difference. Our team at Manhattan Maxillofacial Surgery Group will evaluate your needs and design a treatment plan that is right for you.
What is a Dental Implant?
A dental implant is a titanium post that we surgically implant into your jaw bone. It will serve as a new root system for a tooth that is lost. We use titanium because of its unique abilities of being biocompatible meaning that your body will not reject it, and in fact it will heal around it, attaching living tissue and bone around it, fusing it in place. Once healed, we can then place a prosthetic device over the implant, for a permanent restoration that will look, feel, and function like your natural tooth.
The benefits of dental implants are only outweighed by your natural teeth. Benefits include:
