Dental implants are changing the way people live. They are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. For most patients, the placement of dental implants involves two surgical procedures. First, implants are placed within your jawbone. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants are beneath the surface of the gums gradually bonding with the jawbone. At this time, your dentist is forming new replacement teeth. After the implant has bonded to the jawbone our Brooklyn implant dentist will begin the last stage. The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months. Dr. Marc Hertz will also make any temporary prosthesis needed during the implant process.
Dental Implants Marine Park
With our Brooklyn dental implants, people are rediscovering the comfort and confidence to eat, speak, laugh and enjoy life. With recent technological advances, our Marine Park dental implants have become a single stage dental procedure. These implants do not require a second procedure to uncover them, but do require a minimum of six weeks of healing time before artificial teeth are placed. It is also possible that the dental implants can be placed at the same time as a tooth extraction, which minimizes further surgical procedures. Advances in dental implant technology have made it possible, in select cases, to extract teeth and place implants with crowns at one visit.
