How Do Implants Work?
Your smile is supposed to consist of a full assembly of teeth and roots. When even one is lost, a chain reaction occurs that can compromise the rest of your teeth and your health in general. Remaining teeth will shift toward gaps, and the underlying jawbone will being to weaken without proper stimulation. This process, known as resorption, can be prevented by having dental implants placed.
While traditional prosthetics allow patients to chew food effectively, only dental implants provide the necessary stability. You will be able to fully chew food without worrying about shifting or improper digestion. Not only that, but restorations can be custom designed to match your aesthetic preferences. Dr. Lewis Gross works closely with patients to ensure their satisfaction with the final results.
The Implant Process
Dr. Gross will first perform a comprehensive exam to determine if a patient is healthy enough for successful osseointegration. Ideal candidates still have sufficient bone structure and possess healthy gums. If these terms are not met, preparatory procedures, such as bone grafts, can be performed in-office to ensure we are able to restore your health. Our restorations are crafted from porcelain, a material valued for its stain-resistance and resemblance to natural teeth.
Dental implants typically take three to six months to heal completely. After the surgically placed posts successfully fuse to the jaw, Dr. Gross will invite you back to both check the state of your temporaries and place your restorations.
We offer the following restoration options in Tribeca:

Dr. Gross and his team will provide you with proper instructions on dental implant post-care so that you are able to preserve your long-term health between appointments.
