How Dental Implants Can Improve Your Smile

Dental implants help patients improve and maintain their dental health as well as regain the freedom and control that they had with their natural teeth. Aside from their cosmetic benefits, dental implants can help prevent potentially serious health problems. When a tooth is missing, the surrounding teeth tend to lean in toward the resulting gap, creating such serious health problems as persistent headaches and bite disorders. By replacing the tooth, Dr. Konikoff effectively treats these issues before they become debilitating.

Dental implants are also an excellent option for patients who currently wear traditional dentures or bridges. While these treatments help to compensate for the loss of teeth, patients who wear them often experience gum recession and bone loss because of the rubbing caused by these removable devices. This creates a hollowed-out look around the mouth where tissue has been lost. Because implants are anchored in the jaw, they help strengthen the gum tissue, jawbone, and bite, improving your overall health. Implants also provide more comfort than dentures because they don’t require messy adhesives and can’t slip out of the mouth.

The Dental Implants Procedure

The process for receiving dental implants takes place over two office visits. During the first appointment, Dr. Konikoff works closely with a periodontist who implants lightweight titanium anchors into the jaw that will serve as the foundation for the patient’s replacement teeth. These anchors fuse to the jaw bone, creating strength that is not possible with removable dentures or bridges. Once the gums have healed, typically in about three to six months, patients can return to the office to complete the procedure.

During this office visit, Dr. Konikoff attaches replacement teeth, in the form of a crown, bridge, or full set of dentures, to the implant posts. Dr. Konikoff uses his skill as a cosmetic dentist to craft restorations that complement any surrounding teeth and the contours of the mouth and face. The completed procedure provides patients with a lasting, aesthetically pleasing smile.
