Dental Implants in New York, NY

For a Beautiful Smile That Lasts

At Healthy Chelsea Dental, we use natural-looking dental implants to replace missing teeth and provide a fixed solution to removable partial or complete dentures. Implants provide excellent support and stability so you can enjoy all of your favorite foods with ease.

Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by a dentist or periodontist. The teeth attached to implants are very natural-looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile.

Our dental implants are stable, durable, and will last many years, but on occasion, they may need to be re-tightened or replaced due to normal wear.

Dental Implant Candidacy

Patients choose dental implants for several different reasons, such as:

  • Replacing one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth
  • Resolving joint pain or bite problems caused by shifting teeth
  • Restoring a patient’s confident smile
  • Restoring chewing, speech, and digestion
  • Restoring or enhancing facial issues
  • Supporting a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable

The Dental Implant Process

The process of getting implants requires several visits over several months. The steps of your treatment will include:

  1. At your first appointment, X-rays and impressions (molds) are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine how much bone, gum tissue, and spacing are available for an implant.
  2. While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone, where it will heal and integrate itself into the bone for up to six months.
  3. Depending on the type of implant, a second surgery may be required to place the “post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place. With other implants, the post and anchor are already attached and placed at the same time.
  4. After several weeks of healing, the artificial teeth are customized and fitted to the post portion of the anchor. Because several fittings may be required, this step can take one to two months to complete.
  5. After a healing period, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort for the patient.
