Using titanium posts to replace your original tooth roots, implants reinforce your jawbone. Without teeth, our jawbones would shrink, leaving us with a prematurely aged appearance. Remaining teeth will shift out of alignment, which may lead to orthodontic issues.
How Dental Implants Preserve Your Health
Dental implants prevent the negative consequences of tooth loss. They help secure not only your smile but your health as well. Without a full set of teeth, you are unable to chew food properly, which leads to poor digestion. When the nutrients from your meals aren’t properly absorbed, you aren’t gaining the full benefits of your diet. Fortunately, dental implants allow you to chew normally and stay well.
Restoration Options in Central Park
Receiving dental implants is a multiple-step process, beginning with placement and completed with an attractive, high-quality restoration. Once your implants have healed, Dr. Shahinyan will begin the restoration process.
Our East Harlem dental practice offers the following restorations, which are crafted from beautiful Japanese porcelain:
- Single Unit Crowns
- Implant-Supported Bridges
- Hybrid and Overdentures
Dr. Shahinyan designs these restorations to match the shade of your natural teeth. We entrust a local lab to produce crowns, bridges, and dentures which preserve our patients’ long-term dental aesthetics and function. With new teeth in place, you will be able to eat properly and smile with confidence.
Ideal Candidates for Implant Placement
Ideal candidates for dental implant placement have healthy gums and jawbones. Dr. Shahinyan checks for signs of periodontal disease during the initial consultation. She also examines the volume of the patient’s jawbone. Our dentist collaborates with a visiting periodontist, Dr. Valerie Klein, for implant placement.
If you have already experienced resorption, you can still become a viable candidate. Preparatory procedures, such as bone grafting, ridge augmentation, and sinus lifts, can be performed that would allow you to receive dental implants.
