Are you missing one or more teeth? Do you wish to have a beautiful, fully functional smile once again? Ask our dentists about dental implants in Port Jefferson Station, New York. Dental implants restore not only the tooth, but the tooth root. Implants are made up of three parts: a titanium screw, a dental restoration, and an abutment. The titanium screw is placed in the jawbone, replacing the tooth root. The dental restoration, which is usually a dental crown, is attached to the screw by Drs. Nicastro and Felpo. The abutment connects the two pieces.
Dental Implant Advantages
Dental implants have many advantages. The titanium implant screw is designed to fuse with the jawbone, so dental implants become a permanent part of your smile. Dental implant placement doesn’t require the altering of healthy teeth, as some dental restorations do. Because of this, your oral health is improved in the long term.
Dental Implant Care
Care for your dental implants the way you care for your natural teeth. Brush your teeth twice a day and floss once a day. Also, it is important that you visit N.J. Nicastro Dental PC at least every six months for a cleaning and exam.
Dental Implant Life Span
Dental implants are very durable. They can last for up to 25 years, or even longer with good care.
