Tooth loss isn’t just a problem among seniors. Anyone can lose natural teeth due to injury, decay, or gum disease. Fortunately, there are multiple dental solutions to replace lost teeth to restore your smile’s function and appearance. One of these solutions is dental implants. At Dental Art Concepts PLLC, we offer dental implant treatment to residents of Staten Island and surrounding communities. A visit to your Staten Island implant dentist can determine your suitability for this treatment.
Dental implants are prosthetic teeth that look, act, and feel like natural teeth. They’re composed of a titanium post, an abutment, and a dental crown or natural-looking prosthetics. Your implant dentist, Dr. Matthew Scaffa, will surgically embed the post into your jaw to replace your lost tooth root. Over time, this post will fuse with your jawbone system to become a secure foundation for the replacement teeth. Once the post has healed, Dr. Scaffa will attach the abutment and prosthetics to complete your smile.
For your convenience, implants can be used to replace one missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, a whole row of teeth, or all of your teeth.
