Dental implants can be placed and restored by Queens area dentist
At Northern Plaza Dental, patients in the area of Queens have the ability to work with a dentist who treats them like family. Dr. Theo Davantzis of Bayside, NY is here to help when oral health is of concern. Missing teeth can occur for a variety of reasons. Patients may have experienced tooth loss due to periodontal disease, large cavities, failed root canals, or injury to the mouth. Regardless of how the tooth came be lost or extracted, patients need to speak with a dental professional about replacement as soon as possible to avoid further problems.
Replacement of teeth can be done in a number of different ways. The three primary methods include dentures, dental bridges, and dental implants. These are some great options for patients, but some are more appropriate than others depending on unique dental needs. Patients who are seeking something economical may choose dentures, while patients who want a permanent option that requires little to no special attention may prefer to invest more in dental implants.
Dental implants are considered the “gold standard” in tooth replacement. These titanium posts are implanted by a dentist into the bone of the jaw to act as the natural tooth root once did. The implant can then be restored in a variety of ways. A single tooth replacement can be achieved with placing a dental crown over the implant, while several teeth in a row can be achieved by integrating dentures or dental bridges with the implants. This versatility is one reason why patients prefer implants. Additionally, these restorations can last a lifetime with proper care and attention, allowing patients to make a great investment in their smile!
