Dental implants are a series of procedures that replace your missing teeth and improve your jaw structure. They are titanium cylinders surgically placed into your jawbone beneath your gums where your tooth is missing.
Dr. Berkowitz caps the implant with a dental crown, which simulates a natural tooth. This innovative technology allows your replacement tooth to look and function just like a real tooth.
According to the American Academy of Implant Dentistry (AAID), dental implants have a long-term success rate of 97%.
Success relies on an assortment of factors. Although you don’t have to worry about issues like tooth decay, proper oral hygiene is crucial in maintaining success with implants. With good oral hygiene habits at home, like regular brushing and flossing, and consistent professional teeth cleanings, dental implants are easy to maintain and could last a lifetime.
Dental implants are the gold standard for teeth replacement.
Because implants are made of titanium, they provide stability to the jawbone without damaging other teeth, and tooth decay can't occur. While other teeth-replacement options can last for a limited number of years, dental implants can last a lifetime.
Almost anyone missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or all their teeth are candidates for dental implants (except for growing children). Even if you suffer from bone loss due to gum disease or have pre-existing medical conditions, there are procedures Dr. Berkowitz can perform to place and restore implants.
Dr. Berkowitz can evaluate your condition and diagnose a plan for your needs.
