Dental implants are the gold-standard for tooth loss treatment. At Doueck Dental & Sleep Medicine, we are proud to announce that technological advances in dentistry make dental implants available to more patients than ever before. In America alone, 500,000 people each year get dental implants. If you’re suffering from tooth loss, visit our Brooklyn dentist, Dr. Doueck—he’ll design a customized treatment plan, providing you with an attractive addition to your smile.
Dental implants are a revolutionary way to restore the gaps in your smile caused by missing or damaged teeth. This beautiful tooth-replacement option can regain your ability to speak, eat, and smile confidently. The implant is composed of three parts: the fixture, the abutment, and the crown.
With a minor surgery, Dr. Doueck’s team of specialists will place the implant fixture on your jawbone. Since we craft the fixture from a biocompatible titanium alloy, it will immediately begin to fuse with your jawbone. This process of fusing the surface of the implant fixture with your jawbone is called Osseointegration. Before you leave our office, Dr. Doueck will apply a temporary crown to protect the implant while we manufacture your permanent restoration.
After your mouth heals, you’ll return to our Brooklyn practice so Dr. Doueck can swap out the crowns—completing the implant process.
Dental implants have a 97% success rate and offer a predictable solution to decayed or lost teeth. Furthermore, they have added benefits including:
Beyond their advantageous nature, dental implants offer our patients a convenient solution for their tooth loss. Furthermore, you care for them like you would your natural teeth—with daily brushing and flossing. However, what happens if you’re missing more than one tooth?
Dental implants provide flexibility by working with dental crowns and dental bridges, making them stronger and more reliable.
