Dental Implants Q & A

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots that replace natural teeth that are missing or require extraction because of being loose, infected, or severely decayed. Custom crowns attach to dental implants to give you the beautiful smile makeover of your dreams.

Dr. Rozenberg also offers implant restoration if you have problems with existing dental implants or need a restoration after implant surgery.

What are the benefits of dental implants?

Choosing dental implants at Rozenberg Dental NYC offers you numerous cosmetic and functional benefits, including:

  • No more gaps
  • Stronger teeth
  • A restored smile
  • Easier chewing
  • Clearer speech
  • Easy maintenance
  • Better facial symmetry and structure
  • Reduced risk of bone loss and gum recession

Dental implants look, function, and feel like your natural surrounding teeth. Dr. Rozenberg is highly qualified and experienced with dental implants, offering you the highest quality of care imaginable.

Are dental implants right for me?

To determine if dental implants best suit your smile makeover needs, Dr. Rozenberg examines your mouth, reviews your medical and dental history, discusses your desired outcome, and takes dental X-rays. 

You must be willing to commit to a process that takes several months to complete to be a good candidate for dental implants. If your jaw bone isn’t sufficient to securely support dental implants, you must first undergo bone grafting prior to dental implant placement.

What happens during dental implant placement?

Dental implant placement is a multiple-step process that takes several visits to complete.

The first step is bone grafting, if necessary. Once the graft heals or if you don’t need a bone graft, Dr. Rozenberg numbs the treatment area, so you don’t feel pain. She surgically places titanium implants into your jawbone and allows the implants to heal for several months.

Over time, bone grows around the implants to secure them in place. During another appointment, Dr. Rozenberg places connector posts on the implants and sends impressions or digital scans to a dental lab, so technicians can create new custom crowns (artificial teeth).

When your new crowns are ready, Dr. Rozenberg secures them to the implants to give you the full set of teeth and beautiful smile you desire.

How should I care for dental implants?

Dental implants can last up to 20 years or longer with proper oral care. Brush your teeth twice a day, floss every day, and avoid chewing on hard objects. See Dr. Rozenberg every six months for dental cleanings and exams, and call the office if your implants become loose or damaged.

Don’t live with an imperfect smile and missing teeth when you don’t have to. Schedule an appointment at Rozenberg Dental NYC over the phone or online to find out if dental implants are right for you.
