What are dental implants
Simply, dental implants are titanium posts with a false tooth (or teeth) attached on top. They are embedded into the patient’s jawbone in order to create a strong, long-lasting replacement for missing teeth.
An individual crown, bridge, or denture can then be cemented to the portion of the post which protrudes above the gum line. Among the other alternatives to replace missing teeth, dental implants offer the most stability and long-term results.Learn More
How dental implants work
During your dental implant consultation in our Midtown Manhattan dental office, Dr. Tammy Chen will put together a comprehensive treatment plan to ensure the best results for your treatment. The dental implant procedure is a three part process:
1 Placing the implant
The dental implant, usually a cylindrical and/or tapered post made of titanium, is surgically placed into the jawbone.
2 Installing the abutment
Once the implant is settled in, your surgeon will then install a post known as an abutment into the implant.
Finally, a prosthetic tooth will be created and attached to the implants to restore natural functionality and aesthetics.

Candidates for dental implants
Almost anyone who has lost a tooth, several teeth, or even all of her teeth is a prime candidate for dental implants. Obviously, each patient has specific needs. At the offices of Dr. Chen, we thoroughly evaluate each candidate to determine the most appropriate plan of dental treatment. We will assess each patient’s specific dental conditions and determine the treatment approach that would provide the best long-term functional and aesthetic result.
Implant dentistry candidates will need to have healthy gums and adequate bone in order to support the restoration. A full evaluation by our Midtown Manhattan implant dentist will help determine whether you are a good candidate for dental implants. For more information, schedule an appointment today.
