Tooth loss affects more than just the appearance of your smile. It affects what food you can eat, how you speak, the shape of your face, and your jawbone strength. Today, there are great tooth replacement options, including dental implants. Are they the right fit for you?

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are small titanium posts. They’re surgically implanted in your jawbone where you’re missing a tooth. While you recover from surgery, the post fuses to your jawbone and becomes an artificial tooth root! We finish off the process with a realistic tooth replacement.

What Do Dental Implants Restore?

If you’re missing just one tooth, we usually place a crown on the implant. For multiple missing teeth, an implant-supported bridge is a good option. When replacing all the teeth in an arch, there are implant-supported dentures. Because of their versatility, dental implants are a great option for a variety of tooth-loss situations.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Implants?

Dental implants are very popular because of their many benefits. They look, feel, and function like natural teeth. They’re cared for like natural teeth, as well. With good oral hygiene and visits to the dentist for regular cleanings and exams, dental implants often last the rest of a patient’s life. Unlike other tooth replacements, dental implants also preserve your jawbone density.

Who Is Eligible for Dental Implants?

We won’t know if dental implants are the right choice for you until you’ve had a consultation with our team at Queensboro Plaza Dental Care. Eligible candidates need good oral health and good jawbone density, which weakens after you’ve lost teeth. If your jawbone isn’t strong enough, we can perform a bone graft.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.
