Dental Implants: A Second Chance
Dental Implant FAQ in Bronx NY
Every once in a while life gives us a second chance. For those who are missing teeth, implants are that second chance.
Today, in most cases,modern dental implants can replace the teeth you have lost. The major limiting factors are your bone and your bite.
If your bone is wide enough, and if it is high enough, you can have an implant. An implant must be placed in solid bone. “You can’t put a screw in a hollow door.” If you do not have enough bone, bone grafts will be required. Most bone grafts are rather uncomplicated. Others are more involved. Most people have adequate bone for dental implants.
Forces on implants should be along their long axis (parallel to their length). Implants and natural teeth last longer when your jaw and teeth are in harmony.
