Dental Implants with Dr. Vipul Patel
Today’s dental implants are the standard when it comes to replacing missing teeth. At Warwick Valley Dental, Dr. Patel provides complete start-to-finish dental implant therapy right here in our Warwick practice.
What are Dental Implants?
Implants are biocompatible, artificial tooth roots. We set them directly into your bone, near the area of your missing tooth. Once installed, your body naturally forms new bone tissues around them, permanently securing the implant into place (osseointegration.) They’re about the same size and length of a natural tooth root.
Once osseointegration is completed, we’re able to affix a permanent restoration on top of the implant, via an abutment. This extension connects at the top of the implant, providing us with a surface for a crown, bridge, or even a full-arch denture to attach onto.
Getting dental implants is relatively straightforward and comfortable, especially with our convenient sedation dentistry options. Most of our Warwick patients tell us that their implant placement surgery was easier than having a tooth pulled!
Types of Dental Implant Restorations
Depending on your situation and the number of teeth you need to replace, Dr. Vipul Patel may recommend one of the following:
Single Tooth Crowns —
Individual dental implants with a ceramic crown are the closest thing to having a natural tooth all over again!
Multi-Tooth Implant Bridge —
Replace several teeth in a row with just two dental implants. Your multi-tooth bridge will anchor at either end, filling in the open space.
Implant Supported Dentures —
Tired of dentures that don’t fit right or feel comfortable? We can use as few as 2-4 dental implants to keep them in place.
