Dental Implants Q&A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are restorations made of biocompatible titanium. These implants are metal posts that serve as artificial tooth roots. The team surgically places them into your jawbone. The implants attach to dental crowns, bridges, or implant-supported dentures to replace missing permanent teeth. 

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Some of the many benefits you can experience after receiving dental implants at Ardsley Dental Spa include:

  • A full set of teeth
  • Natural-looking teeth
  • A beautiful smile
  • More self-confidence
  • Easier chewing
  • Clearer speech

Dental implants are strong and long-lasting. They look, function, and feel just like your natural teeth. Ardsley Dental Spa has an in-house periodontist who offers the most beautiful results.

What are the different types of dental implants?

The main types of dental implants available at Ardsley Dental Spa include:

Endosteal implants

The periodontist places endosteal implants into your jawbone. After surrounding gum tissue heals, she completes a second surgery to connect a dental crown to each metal post.

Subperiosteal implants

With subperiosteal implants, the team fits a metal frame over your jawbone underneath gum tissue. When your gums heal, the frame fuses to your bone. She can attach posts to the frame along with dental crowns.

All-on-4® implants

With All-on-4 dental implants, the team places a series of four posts within your jaw bone. The implants can anchor full dentures to replace all of your permanent teeth. 

With each procedure, the team numbs the treatment area so you don’t feel any discomfort during implant placement. 

Are dental implants right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for dental implants, the periodontist reviews your oral health history, assesses your teeth and gums, and reviews the results from your digital dental X-rays. She also discusses your desired outcome. You must be free of gum disease, have a healthy jawbone, or be willing to undergo bone grafting prior to implant placement. 

How should I care for my dental implants?

Take care of your new dental implants by brushing them at least twice daily and floss every day. Don’t chew on ice or other hard objects and see the Ardsley Dental Spa team at least every six months for routine cleanings and dental exams.
