Dental Implants Overview
Replacing missing or nonrestorable teeth is extremely important to both oral and general health. At PDADental, our multi-specialty team is pleased to offer dental implants as a lifelike solution to tooth loss. Implants fuse with the jawbone for incredible stability and are comprised of titanium posts (serving as artificial tooth roots) and a natural-looking crown, bridge, or denture restoration that mimics the visible portion of natural teeth. Our team of specialists works cohesively to complete the entire implant procedure from the convenience of our state-of-the-art facility. If severely damaged or missing teeth have you searching for a long-term tooth replacement solution, we invite you to schedule a visit at our Financial District, Lower Manhattan, NY practice and explore the long-term benefits of dental implants.

Best Candidates for Mouth Guards
As a versatile tooth replacement option, dental implants can replace any quantity of missing or nonrestorable teeth and may be ideal for the front or back of the mouth. Many patients choose implants for their ability to replicate the function, feel, and cosmetic appearance of natural teeth among other long-term benefits. Since healthy bone quality and quantity are needed to support implants, a bone grafting procedure may be required if jawbone loss has occurred. Implants may not be a good option for those who are pregnant, use tobacco, or have poor oral health or other medical concerns. Our expert team has specialized training in implant placement and restoration and can help you decide if implants are ideal for your tooth replacement needs.
What To Expect with Dental Implants
Before starting the dental implant procedure, our team may need to extract severely damaged teeth or perform a bone graft to create adequate jawbone support. When your mouth is ready to receive dental implants, we will numb the treatment areas with a local anesthetic. PDADental is dedicated to patient care and will cater to your comfort throughout the entire procedure. A small incision will be made in the gum tissues and the implant posts will be precisely inserted in the jawbone. Sutures will then be placed to cover the implant or to leave a portion of the posts protruding from the gums. A temporary type of restoration may be positioned over your implants to maintain appearance and function during the healing phase. When your implants have integrated with the bone in your jaw (osseointegration), our general dentists will attach your custom implant denture, bridge, or crown securely to your implant posts. Your restorations will be adjusted as needed for a comfortable fit and proper bite.
Dental Implants Recovery
It is common to experience minor discomfort, bruising, and swelling in your jaw following the surgical placement of implants. After your implant surgery, our staff will let you know of any symptoms to report and what to expect as your jaw recovers. Prescription pain medication may be provided to increase your comfort during the healing process. Once your implants are ready for the restorative phase, our team will take an impression of your mouth for our partner dental lab to use when customizing your implant denture, bridge, or crown. Implant restorations are made from top-grade materials and blend naturally with surrounding teeth for a highly aesthetic appearance. When your restoration is ready, we will screw or cement it in place over your implant post. Like natural teeth, dental implants should be cared for each day with proper brushing and flossing to keep the surrounding bone and gum tissues strong. Our team will evaluate the health of your implants during your routine preventive care visits at PDADental.
Dental Implants Insurance Coverage
Depending on your plan, a portion of your implant procedure may be covered by dental insurance. Our financial coordinator will review your individual benefits and let you know of any estimated personal costs. To make tooth replacement both convenient and affordable, PDADental accepts an array of flexible payment options, including special financing through CareCredit®.
Dental implants can return a lifelike quality to your smile, whether you are missing a single tooth or an entire arch.
