A New Year, a New You with Dental Implants

When the ball drops in Time Square this New Year’s Eve, where are you going to be? Will you be the one that is at the front and center of all the action, flashing a brilliant grin at the world? Tooth loss robs countless people of their confidence every year. The American College of Prosthodontists reports that 120 million people in the U.S. are missing at least one tooth. To combat this edentulism epidemic, providers like Nargiz, Schmidt,  prosthodontist in Manhattan, NY, have developed several advances designed to bring patients like you to a state of good dental health.

Among the most popular of these is dental implants. Implants look, feel and function just like your natural teeth. They remain permanently affixed in your gums thanks to a titanium road that is inserted directly into your jaw bone. Millions have already utilized implants to replace everything from a single missing tooth to their entire set of teeth.

The Benefits of Implants

People’s main concern when it comes to dental implants is often the cost. Yet the many advantages that they offer compared to other treatment methods make the expense more than worth it. These benefits include:

  • Ease of use: Unlike dentures, implants are cared for in the same manner as your regular teeth. You do not have to worry about specialized products to clean your teeth or to get them to remain in your mouth while eating or talking.
  • Durability: While you likely would have to replace a set of dentures every few years, your implants can remain effective for decades if properly cared for. This may ultimately make them a more cost-effective option given their durability.
  • Jaw bone growth: When you are missing teeth, the underlying jaw bone eventually begins to deteriorate, leading to a condition known as facial collapse. Implants actually reverse this process by fusing to the jaw bone and stimulating the growth of new healthy bone.
