Learn more about dental implants and how they can permanently replace missing teeth.

With proper oral hygiene and care, a dental implant can last you the rest of your life. That is why so many adults turn to our Katonah, NY, dentists Dr. Enyoung Park and Dr. Terry Lin, for dental implants.

Here are some things that you should know about this tooth-loss treatment option:

The implant replaces the entire tooth

An implant is the only tooth replacement option that is able to restore the entire structure of your tooth, from the roots to the crown. While the crown is the only part of your restoration that’s visible, the metal implant itself is placed into the jawbone where it takes the place of your missing tooth roots. A dental implant allows our patients here in Katonah, NY, to be able to improve the function, strength, and stability of their teeth.

An implant can last for decades

A dental implant has become a very popular way to replace missing teeth in adults because the implant truly looks and functions just like a real tooth, making it a very attractive option. These small but mighty tooth replacements offer an up to 98 percent success rate. Plus, since the implant itself naturally fuses together with bone and tissue, this also means that the implant will become a permanent part of your mouth. As long as you maintain good oral hygiene and continue to come in for routine checkups, there is no reason why your implant couldn’t last you the rest of your life.

Most people can benefit from dental implants

Are you a healthy individual who is missing one or more permanent teeth? If you said yes, then you could very well be an ideal candidate for implants. It doesn’t matter how many teeth you need to replace; dental implants can replace all of them. In order to determine if implants are right for you, we will go through your medical history, assess your oral health, and take x-rays to make sure your jawbone is strong enough to support an implant.
