Multiple teeth implants work off of the same basic principle that makes single teeth implants so successful, but without having to have an individual implant for each missing tooth. At the office of Ralph Tarantino, D.M.D., our Staten Island dental implants provide the best benefits of a bridge or dentures, but combined with the technology that has made implants such a popular option in tooth replacement.
Traditional bridges and dentures have been around for a long time, and are still used to restore multiple teeth. There are drawbacks to these methods, however. Whereas our Staten Island dental implants are designed to mimic the best qualities of a natural tooth, by having a root as well as a tooth, old-fashioned bridges and dentures are mere surface solutions. They stand in cosmetically for your former teeth, existing only above the gum line. Yes, you can chew food, but not with the level of confidence that you will have with our Staten Island dental implants. Titanium posts represent the root portion of them, and they are surgically placed beneath your gums, in your jaw. There, your bone tissue goes to work growing around it. Within just a few months, your jaw structure will have fused with the posts. A bridge is then created, which will be cemented to the posts. Or if you are replacing all of the teeth on your jaw, the solution will be a removable denture that simply snaps onto the posts and can be taken out when you want to. You can chew even the toughest and crunchiest foods with them. And with proper care, they can last you a lifetime.
