Dental Implants

What Is a Dental Implant?

A dental implant is an artificial device surgically inserted into your jaw bone to replace a missing tooth. The implant post provides permanent support for a replacement tooth, and the crown looks and feels just like a natural tooth. The metal screw fuses to your bone to provide stable support for the replacement tooth. Depending on the condition of your jaw bone, your Downtown NYC dentist may recommend:

  • Endosteal implants, which are titanium posts surgically implanted directly into your bone
  • Subperiosteal implants, used when bone density is insufficient, involve the placement of a metal frame on your jaw bone to support the dental implant.

An implant is the best solution for a smile makeover if you have a missing tooth or teeth. Teeth implants also help digestion since they allow you to chew healthy raw foods and grains properly. Dr. Alex Shalman's boutique family and cosmetic dentistry in Lower Manhattan specializes in dental implants. He gives tailored treatment and care based on your specific needs.

Who Are Ideal Candidates for Teeth Implants?

Dental implant treatment is suitable for just about anyone over age 18 and whose natural teeth and jaws have finished growing and developing. Being older isn’t a problem, as implant treatment has helped many older adults. However, you must have a reasonable level of dental health, and you shouldn’t have any serious general health problems that could affect treatment.
