Dental implants primarily replace teeth that have come loose and are falling out. They can be used to treat the loss of one tooth, an entire sequence of teeth, or all of the teeth within a jaw. These implants can give a person's smile new life.

New teeth can lead to more confidence as you no longer have to hide behind a mask. If you have loose teeth, you may not want to interact with people. However, visiting dentists specializing in dental implants can help you retrieve your beautiful old smile. 

You may not stay forever young, but that doesn't mean that you don't deserve a beautiful smile. Although some people may shy away from the thought of artificial teeth, this process is quite simple, careful, and beneficial. It involves implants that support the jaw, which eventually grows around it.

Unlike older procedures, this technologically advanced process is less invasive and yields much better results. So, if you have loose teeth, here's why you should get a dental implant. 

Planning for Dental Implants

Getting dental implants may be easy, but planning for them may involve some complicated steps. You need to start with the diagnosis. Read up on dental implants in New York and visit multiple doctors for multiple opinions before you decide to replace your teeth. 

The process depends on the diagnosis and treatment plan. The better the plan, the easier the process. This process starts with the doctor getting a scan of your jaw, which shows a 3D image of your teeth. This can help the dentist understand the unique anatomy of your mouth and what is required to fix the problem. 

If you need to decide whether you want to invest in a dental implant procedure, it is a great practice to go through dental implants before and after pictures so that you can decide if the results will work for you. 

Make sure your doctor shows you what the final results will look like through 3D imaging so that you are satisfied with the end result.  

The Benefits of Dental Implants

The dental implant process comes hand in hand with numerous benefits. These consist of the perfect smile, the final benefit of a complex process. 

1. The implant looks and feels natural. It is uncommon for the implant to feel out of place or unnatural as it is made to mimic your natural teeth. Thus it feels comfortable in your mouth, unlike dentures which may feel clunky. 
2. Dental implants are permanent, so you don't need to fear that the teeth will fall out or hinder your speech. You can eat the same things you used to eat as a young child without worrying that you will hurt yourself or your gums. 
3. Dental implants improve the health of your mouth and the rest of your teeth. This is because they are situated around your natural teeth. 
4. The implants eventually lead to a perfect smile. This can give you the confidence you need at public events or business meetings, the confidence you might have been searching for for some time now.

So, how can you figure out if you are the right candidate for a dental implant and if you need it? Here are some signs that it is time for a dental implant. 

1. You feel like the recent dentures you invested in have become worn out and are starting to affect your speech. It hurts you to put them on or take them off, and they don't feel right in your mouth. 
2. Lately, you have been covering your mouth whenever you laugh. A tooth at the side of your mouth has fallen out. You feel uncomfortable. 
3. You've lost your teeth due to gum disease or an illness over time. You want to feel more confident and eat comfortably again. 

It's time for dental implants! A dental implant procedure is nothing to dread. In fact, the appointment may change your life!

If your teeth are in good condition, perhaps it's best to visit the dentist for your annual cleaning. If you feel like your teeth look out of shape in the mirror, see your dentist, get your teeth checked, and ask them if you can qualify for orthodonticsprocedures. 

If you want to fill in the gaps between your teeth, you can also go for porcelain veneers! So you see, there are many ways to get that perfect smile. However, only your dentist can let you know which procedure will suit you best. 

The Dental Implants Procedure

You have finally decided to go for dental implants. What next? 

Visiting a professional who knows what they are doing is the best way to begin the process. At Dentist Manhattan, New York, Dr. Gregory makes sure to develop a treatment plan that works best for you and your unique oral anatomy. 

After the doctor lays out your treatment plan and you are deemed fit for a dental implant (this depends on the existing bone near the gums), the root is implanted in the bone socket where your tooth has come loose.  

This root may take three to four months to attach itself to the jaw bone and let the bone heal. This is followed by another appointment, during which the dentist will model your new tooth based on your bite. 

Everything, from color to the tooth's shape, is determined by the condition of your other teeth. This procedure may be uncomfortable; however, the pain is manageable. It is essential to practice good dental implant care. If you want to explore the process further, WebMd's Oral Health guidesummarizes the procedure in greater detail. 

In short, brush your teeth and floss religiously! Book a tooth whitening appointment once or twice a year to maintain that perfect smile! If you want to save your damaged tooth from an implant, invest in fillings or try porcelain crowns if all else fails.

Your Natural Smile

If you want to make the dental implants process easy for yourself, put your trust in Dentist Manhattan, New York, and contact them today for a consultation. It is vital to have a detailed walk-through of the process before you commit to it. 

A professional with sufficient implantology knowledge is required to analyze the inner structures of your teeth and guide you accordingly. Choose wisely and get your natural smile back today!
