Smile Brighter with Brooklyn Dental Implants

Smiling is a natural instinct that we do without thinking about it. People smile for a variety of reasons such as meeting someone new, listening to their favorite song, or just because they’re happy. When someone is missing a tooth, smiling can become a burden, but it doesn’t have to be. At Park Slope Dentistry, we can replace a missing tooth or multiple teeth with artificial ones.

Missing a tooth can be very uncomfortable, especially if the gap is visible when smiling. Many people assume their only options are bridges or dentures. Our Brooklyn dental implants are a long-term solution because they are secured to the jawbone right below the gums. This strategic placement ensures stability for the artificial teeth. These implants consist of metal posts which become the anchor for all the replacement teeth. Unlike bridges, Brooklyn dental implants keep your natural teeth from shifting.

The majority of the time a dental implant consists of three unique parts: implant, abutment, and crown. The implant’s purpose is to become the new root for the artificial tooth and it is fused to the jawbone. The abutment’s job is to support the new tooth by connecting it to the implant or root. Last but not least, the crown is the actual prosthetic tooth. All of these pieces work together to fill in the gaps of your smile.

Proper care will make dental implants last longer. Follow these easy steps when caring for implants:

  • We recommend brushing your teeth twice a day for at least two minutes each time.
  • Flossing at least once a day can help remove food caught between teeth.
  • Quit smoking for a higher success rate of the dental implant.
  • We suggest avoiding hard foods because the crown can easily be cracked.
    • Ice, hard candy, etc.
  • Visit your dentist on a regular basis to ensure good dental hygiene. With routine checkups, your dentist can spot any minor issues before they become serious.
