Dental implants are a permanent option for replacing all your teeth.
- Take up less space than dentures for a more youthful smile
- Are permanent
- Look just like your natural teeth
- Are easier to take care of; just brush and floss as usual
We encourage you to ask us about dental implants at Scarsdale Smiles if you’re curious. Here’s a basic idea of what to expect:
First, there’s a consultation and screening phase. Implants aren’t right for everyone, but they’re now an option for more people than ever before.
If you’re a good candidate for implants, you’ll have surgery to place the artificial root, also called a post. This is placed into the jaw and will actually be integrated with the bone!
After healing, your new teeth will be affixed to the implant root. You’ll need to take good care of your implants, as if they were your natural teeth, and visit us regularly, especially for the few months following the placement.
