DDS Group is a Wall Street dentist that provides dental arch support with 4 to 6 implants in the financial district of New York, NY.
The Dental Implant Process
“Dental implants” is often used as a catch-all term, but the prosthesis used to replace a tooth has three separate components: a titanium post (the dental implant), an abutment that attaches to this post, and the crown, or artificial tooth, that attaches to the abutment.
Dental implants are increasing in popularity because they are the only solution that replaces missing teeth both above and below the gumline. This helps preserve the integrity of the jaw bone, preventing facial collapse. It also results in a strong bite and teeth that look, function, and feel just like the real thing.
The process of getting traditional dental implants requires multiple office visits. If you’ve already experienced bone loss in the jaw, grafts may be required before you’re a candidate for dental implant surgery; if you still have some teeth remaining, they will need to be extracted prior to your implant procedure.
About Implant Supported Arches
Dental implants differ from traditional dental implants in a few significant ways. When a patient is missing a full arch of teeth, dental implants are an excellent solution that provides nearly all of the benefits of traditional implants with fewer office visits and a lower price tag. Another feature that sets these implants apart is that they do not require bone grafting, even when there has been a loss of bone density in the jaw. Rather than placing all of the implants straight down into the jaw, the procedure involves placing two of the implants at an angle, which makes use of available bone.
In many cases, you will leave our office with a fixed bridge after your dental implant surgery, restoring function to your teeth and jaw immediately.
The dental implants prevent further bone loss in the jaw and even stimulate the growth of new bone. Your dental implants are more stable than traditional dentures, with less slipping and no impairment of speech. You can go back to eating all your favorite foods and smile with confidence.
The Cost of Dental Implants
As mentioned above, these types dental implants are a more affordable option than traditional implants, which may require bone grafting, more visits to our office, and a greater number of implants being placed in the jaw. That said, the cost can still be an obstacle for many patients. If your dental insurance plan does not cover the procedure, ask us about our corporate rate and preferred rate plans to save on dental implants and other procedures at DDS Group.
