What is a Dental Implant?


The doctors and surgeons at The Manhattan Dentist love to work with dental implants. That’s because they love to rejuvenate smiles, fix poor bites and on occasion, transform lives.

What is commonly referred to as a dental implant has three distinct parts.


1.The implant is similar to a hollowed-out root of a tooth. Think of it as a highly precise thimble carefully placed during a surgical procedure in a spot once occupied by a tooth.

2. The implant abutment acts like a dowel. The lower portion rests snuggly in the implant while the top portion supports the crown.

3. The implant crown resembles a regular crown that would sit on a tooth. It completely covers the implant abutment. The ultimate goal is to have the implant look, feel and function as if it were a natural tooth.

Are Dental Implants Right For Me?


If you have experienced tooth loss, you are not alone. According to the American Dental Association, more than 100 million Americans have replaced at least one lost tooth that would have been visible if it were not replaced. Sometimes when the space is too large to create a dental fixed bridge, several dental implants can offer an elegant solution. Often, it’s best to replace a previous bridge needing replacement with a new fixed bridge. However, when the teeth directly touching the empty space are relatively healthy and the bite is ok, it’s usually best to leave them untouched. Placing a single secure dental implant is almost always the best choice.
