Dental Implants in Williamsville, NY
SERVING THE RESIDENTS OF WILLIAMSVILLE, AMHERST, CLARENCE & TONAWANDA, NY
Good candidates for dental implants are patients with one or more missing teeth, and a healthy jawbone.
If you are in good oral health and are looking for a long-lasting solution to your missing tooth or teeth, Robert J Yetto DDS in Williamsville, NY can help.
Why Dental Implants?
Dental implants replace a missing tooth with an implant and a crown, or several missing teeth with implant-supported bridges. They can also replace all missing teeth with an implant supported full bridge.
What Are They?
A dental implant is an “artificial root” made of surgical grade titanium that’s placed into the jaw bone beneath the gum line. Once healed, it enables Dr. Yetto to place a natural looking replacement tooth or a bridge into the implant. Unlike dentures, implants don’t come loosen which means they are a longer lasting solution for replacement of missing teeth.
Implant procedures require several different stages, and may include the following:
- Dental exam
- Tooth extractions
- Bone grafting
- Implant placement by a specialist
- After a few months of healing, an abutment which connects to the implant and emerges from the gum tissue is placed along with the new artificial tooth
Benefits of Dental Implants:
- Long-lasting solution to missing tooth/teeth
- Won’t slip or shift in your mouth
- Improves appearance
- Boosts confident
- Improves speaking and eating abilities
