Dental Implants

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are titanium rods that moonlight as artificial tooth roots. Your provider places them by drilling directly into your jawbone and inserting them. Over time, the rods fuse with your natural bone.
Using dental implants, Fifth Avenue Dental Arts can place a variety of dental prosthetics, such as crowns, bridges, and fixed dentures.

Dental implants are extremely durable and strong; unlike dentures, which can be removed, implants are permanently anchored into the jaw itself.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Modern dental implants are highly functional and are the preferred method for replacing missing teeth. Dental implants are an excellent choice because they:

  • Look and feel like natural teeth
  • Prevent gum and bone tissue loss
  • Help you bite and chew normally
  • Are just as or even more durable than natural teeth
  • Keep your teeth from shifting

Additionally, dental implants can also improve the speech of people who suffer from slurring or other speech issues because of missing teeth or dentures.

How long do dental implants take to heal?

Fifth Avenue Dental Arts offers dental implantation with the help of dental cone beam computed tomography (CT) scan technology, which scans each tooth and creates a digital model of your teeth. This advanced, specialized technology allows the practice to place your implants more accurately and quickly.
It also minimizes tissue damage and speeds up recovery time.

At Fifth Avenue Dental Arts, your dental implants usually take six to twelve weeks to heal. Once your implants are strong enough and sufficiently fused with your jawbone, the practice can place your crown(s).

How do I care for my dental implants?

Care for your dental implants just as you would with your natural teeth, making sure to brush at least twice and floss once a day.
Although your dental implants are made of titanium and can’t decay, the surrounding supportive tissues can still break down. To prevent oral health problems like gum disease, come into Fifth Avenue Dental Arts every six months for a thorough cleaning, exam, and new X-rays, as needed.
