Loving your smile may prove to be difficult if you are missing one or some of your teeth. However, you can rejuvenate your smile and fill in your gaps with dental implants. Learn more about how dental implants can help restore your smile with Dr. Michael V. Bleyzer, DDS at Theills Dentistry in Pomona, NY.Dental Implants

What are dental implants? 
A dental implant replaces a missing tooth. However, dental implants stand apart from traditional dental restorations like dental bridges in that the implant itself also replaces your missing tooth’s root. This provides the stimulation the bone under your missing tooth requires to stay healthy and prevents bone atrophy. Additionally, successful integration of the implant into the bone gives the replacement tooth a sturdy foundation on which to sit. Implants are made from implant grade titanium and made to last a lifetime.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?

Since they are implanted directly into the bone itself, dental implants require patients to have enough bone volume to fully support the implant. Good candidates for dental implants should also have a committed and excellent at-home oral care routine to keep their natural teeth and implants healthy in between their regular bi-annual dental examinations and cleanings. A consultation with your Pomona, NY dentst Dr. Bleyzer can help you determine whether or not dental implants are the best tooth replacement option for you.

What can dental implants do for me? 
Dental implants can replace one, several, or an entire arch of teeth. Your Pomona, NY dentist Dr. Bleyzer uses a single implant to replace a single tooth surrounded by healthy teeth. Multiple teeth missing in a row benefit from a dental crown which spans across the gap, filling it in. An implant on each side of the bridge holds it in place. Implant-supported dentures benefit those who no longer have any teeth. Four or more implants throughout the arch give the denture anchor points. The denture latches onto the anchor points, securing it into place.
