An incomplete smile has disadvantages that affect you every single day. You may feel self-conscious, your other teeth can shift and cause you discomfort, and your jaws might fall out of alignment with each other. Chewing is often more challenging, also. Our Westchester Square implants here at Pelham Bay Dental Associates give you back your full set of teeth, and they look and feel so much like your others that you may forget which is which after a while. They even function like real teeth, giving you the ability to chew even the toughest foods with confidence.
You can get a single implant to restore a single tooth, or if you have multiple consecutive, or even all the teeth missing on a single jaw, our Westchester Square implants can be the foundation for a type of denture that is head and shoulders above the traditional type. Speaking of those old-fashioned dentures, you won’t have to use any messy adhesives when you get implant-supported dentures. They simply snap on to the implants and are fully reliable. Single implants consist of two parts. First is the titanium post, or root. And the second is the tooth-colored crown that is cemented to the top of it. To be considered a good candidate, you will need to have basically healthy gums and a jaw bone that is thick enough to support the post. With some simple tests, we can make that determination. Fortunately, bone grafting can be done if your jaw bone does not meet the necessary standard. Most people will find that they are eligible to get our dental implants in Westchester Square implants. There are a few more potential concerns, such as being a smoker or being diabetic. But those will not necessarily disqualify you.
