Dental implants are more than just a restorative solution — they offer a new lease on life for those who have lost teeth. Whether you’ve lost teeth due to injury, decay, or other factors, implants provide a durable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing replacement. If you’re considering dental implants, Riverdale Dental, P.C. is here to guide you through every step of the process, from initial consultation to final restoration.

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots, typically made of titanium, that are surgically placed into your jawbone to support replacement teeth. They are the closest you can get to natural teeth, both in appearance and function. Once in place, the implants bond with your natural bone, providing a sturdy foundation for artificial teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures.

The Benefits Of Dental Implants

The advantages of dental implants are numerous. They look, feel, and function like your natural teeth, restoring your ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence. Unlike other tooth replacement options, implants don’t require grinding down adjacent teeth, which preserves more of your natural tooth structure. They also prevent bone loss in the jaw, maintain your facial structure, and don’t allow restorations to slip or shift in your mouth, offering greater comfort and stability.

Types Of Dental Implants

At Riverdale Dental, P.C., we offer various types of dental implants to cater to different needs:

  • Single dental implant: Ideal for replacing one missing tooth. A single implant is inserted into the jawbone with a crown attached, providing a natural-looking and functional tooth.
  • Implant-supported bridge: An implant-supported bridge is a great option for multiple missing teeth. Unlike traditional bridges, this doesn’t rely on adjacent natural teeth for support.
  • Implant-supported dentures: For those missing most or all of their teeth, implant-supported dentures offer a more stable and comfortable solution than traditional dentures. They are secured to the jaw with implants, eliminating the discomfort and insecurity associated with regular dentures.

Single Dental Implant

A single dental implant is an excellent choice for replacing an individual tooth. The process involves inserting an implant into the jawbone where the tooth is missing. After healing, a custom-made crown is attached to the implant, creating a seamless and functional replacement that blends with your natural teeth.

Implant-Supported Bridge

An implant-supported bridge is used to replace several missing teeth in a row. It consists of a series of crowns anchored by implants on either side of the gap. This type of bridge is a fixed solution that doesn’t rely on adjacent natural teeth, preserving the integrity of your remaining teeth.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures offer a revolutionary solution for those who have lost all or most of their teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, which can be unstable and uncomfortable, these are anchored securely to the jaw with implants. This means they won’t slip or cause discomfort, and they provide a much stronger bite.

Dental Implant Recovery

The recovery process after dental implant surgery is generally straightforward. You may initially experience some discomfort, swelling, and bruising, but this usually subsides within a few days. It’s important to follow our aftercare instructions carefully to ensure the best healing and success of the implant. The full integration of the implant into the jawbone (osseointegration) takes several months, after which the final restoration (crown, bridge, or denture) can be placed.
