Dental Implants in Brooklyn

Missing teeth do more than make a smile seem incomplete, an uneven bite, collapsed facial structure or eventual damage to the surrounding teeth can also result from leaving spaces vacated by lost teeth untreated. Dental implants in Brooklyn are a great solution to the problems that missing teeth can cause. Dental implants are artificial tooth replacements. Our doctor opens the gum and surgically implants a titanium anchor directly into the jawbone, which over time will bond with the jawbone, essentially becoming a part of it. Once the bonding has taken place our doctor will attach a healing collar or post to the anchor. Our dentist will then create a custom crown that goes on top of the post and completely blends in with the rest of your natural teeth.

Because the implants need time to bond with the bone the total time frame from the initial surgery to full restoration is usually between three and six months. In between most patients will use temporary bridgework. In most cases there is little or no disruption to the patient’s normal life during the whole process. The result of dental implants in Brooklyn is a completely natural bite and full smile. You look and feel much better. Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth or a few teeth anywhere around the mouth or even a full set of teeth.

An alternative to dental implants where several teeth or a full jaw of teeth need to be replaced is a full or partial denture. As opposed to a dental implant in Brooklyn that is anchored into the bone a denture is a row of artificial teeth that are imbedded in a gum-like substrate that goes over the gum. It is attached to the gum using a dental adhesive and must be removed daily for cleaning. Dentures take much less time to complete than implants but implants are permanent teeth anchored securely into the gums. Our practice often uses implanted anchors as a means of securing dentures where four anchors are implanted per jaws to which the dentures are eventually secured. Are dental implants or dentures right for you? The best way to find out is to come into the office and let our expert professionals evaluate just what difference replacing missing teeth can make to your life.

If you are looking for a way to have your cosmetically-damaged tooth fixed, without having to spend a lot of money, you should visit us at Biddulph Family Dental. At our dental office, our expert dentist can provide you with beautiful Linndale veneers to change the cosmetic appearance of your tooth.

If a tooth is cosmetically damaged, it can usually easily be fixed with Linndale veneers. These veneers are made of porcelain, and are permanently attached to the front of the tooth. Since veneer only covers the front of the tooth, it will not be able to strengthen the tooth or improve its function. However, if our dentist determines that the tooth only has a purely cosmetic problem, dental veneers will most likely prove to be a great solution for you. If your tooth is damaged, a porcelain crown may instead be recommended; a crown will cover the tooth on all sides, and strengthen and protect the tooth. Porcelain veneers are extremely thin, but also extremely strong. They are color-matched to adjacent teeth so no one will ever know that you have one in your mouth. A patient can get one porcelain veneer to fix the appearance of a single tooth, or a patient can get many porcelain veneers so that they can achieve the perfect smile they have long wanted. Porcelain veneers will last for many years on your teeth. Porcelain veneers can be used to fix the appearance of: teeth that are too short; teeth that have uneven gaps between them; teeth that are chipped; teeth that have surface cracks in the enamel; teeth that are slightly misaligned; teeth that are misshapen; teeth that are discolored and cannot be fixed with dental whitening methods; and teeth with other cosmetic dental problems.
