When a tooth is lost there are various treatments your dentist may choose from. Dental implants are one such restorative dentistry treatment which will allow Manhattan Dental Design to restore a missing tooth. A dental implant is a fixed prosthetic solution, often used when dentures are not a suitable treatment. Another advantage of dental implants is that they become part of the mouth’s normal function.
Even the best fitting lower dentures notoriously slip around and can be very unsteady during eating and speech. With the addition of lower dental implants, speech will be clear, and chewing will become easier. Choosing dental implants instead of a fixed bridge has the advantages of not needing the dentist to file down surrounding teeth to crown supporting teeth for the missing one.
Dental implants can last a lifetime. Enjoy renewed confidence in your smile. Contact us at Manhattan Dental Design for a consultation to see if you are a candidate for dental implants.
It is important to maintain good hygiene and keep the implants free of plaque and debris. Despite the best hygiene and intentions, sometimes accidents occur. Chipped, loose or missing crowns, while uncommon, can still occur. If a crown comes loose, don’t attempt to glue it back in.
Using materials not approved for oral use in prosthetics can harm the crown as well as cause unpredictable problems with the surrounding gum tissues. Don’t hesitate to contact Manhattan Dental Design today, your New York experts in dental implant restorations. Come in for a consultation and we can present your options on the best way to repair your implant crown.
