Dental Implants: A Restorative Dentistry Solution for Missing Teeth
At Dental365, we offer all of the procedures that are needed for dental implants in order to help our patients restore their smiles and jaw function. Dental implant treatment can provide a lasting solution that won’t cause bone loss in your jaw.
Dental implants are considered the best option for replacing missing teeth because they are permanent solutions. Not only are dental implants strong and long-lasting, but they can also improve your overall dental health and the look of your smile.
What are dental implants (tooth implants)?
Dental implants may be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Most dental implants consist of titanium implants that look like small screws. These help secure your teeth in place and ensure that the false teeth will remain in place long-term. The posts are placed in your jawbone and should not move or wiggle. Then, your dentist at Dental365 will slide the false tooth over the top of the titanium post. In cases where a patient is missing several teeth, fewer posts may be used and a row of false teeth can slide over one post to resemble your natural row of teeth.

What does getting dental implants involve?
Before Your Dental Implant Surgery
Before you schedule the procedure, meet with a knowledgeable dentist at Dental365 to have an evaluation of your natural teeth and overall oral health. We’ll let you know whether you are a good candidate for dental restoration and go over any of your questions or concerns. In addition, we’ll discuss your specific expectations and personal treatment goals before oral implant surgery. In some cases, you may require bone grafting or other preparation before the procedure.
During Your Dental Implant Surgery
During the dental implant procedure at one of our Dental365 New York locations, your implants will be carefully inserted into the jawbone using small incisions. The implant process may also include an additive in order to facilitate bone growth and healing. When the procedure is complete, you’ll wait several months before the final restorations are placed.
After Your Dental Implant Surgery
Once your teeth implants process is complete, you will continue to notice healing and improvements over several months. A process called osseointegration occurs, during which the false implants will fuse to your natural jawbone and become more stable. At that point, the last portion of your restorations can be placed and you’ll see the final results of your new smile.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
A dental implant is a replacement for a missing tooth. It serves as a new and permanent root, a titanium screw inserted into the jaw that seats a dental prosthesis. An abutment is placed then a crown is attached. Your implant will feel and look the same as your other natural teeth.
Dentures are a removable set of teeth that require care and attention. Dental implants won’t require any special treatment. Unlike dentures which are removable, implants are permanent and precisely fixed into the jaw bone. Many people with dentures suffer because their body can’t get used to this strange new addition, but there are no such problems with dental implants. They feel like the natural teeth.
With dental implants, nobody, not even you after a while, will notice the difference between an implant and a natural tooth. Dental implants allow you to drink, eat and smile without inhibition or fear of someone noticing there’s something wrong with your mouth. Also, the procedure itself is affordable and the results always meet the expectations.
Contact us for a consultation. After a thorough examination, we can determine if a dental implant is the right choice for you.
An approximate price cannot be given prior to a consultation. This is because the cost will always vary depending on your exact personal oral needs, your insurance and several other factors. If you’re interested in getting dental implants, please contact us so that we may analyze your needs, provide you with a treatment plan and then can discuss your budget and benefits.
Not at all. During the procedure, a local anesthetic will be used. If you’re not comfortable with local anesthetics, you can always talk with your dentist about available sedation options.
Dental implants are usually lifelong. To ensure the quality of your implanted teeth for life, be sure to maintain your oral health by practicing oral hygiene and committing to regular dental check-ups.
