Dental Implants

Midtown New York City Dental Implants

The optimal way to replace missing or non-restorable teeth is through dental implants. The implant is a biocompatible titanium post that is placed in the bone and acts as the root of a tooth. A porcelain tooth is placed on top of the implant, replacing the one that was lost. Dental implants are not removable and act as the patient’s own natural teeth, restoring chewing and speech function and esthetics. Patients in good general and oral health, that have missing teeth, are usually excellent candidates for dental implants. Dr. Mihalos works in conjunction with a either a periodontist or an oral surgeon who performs the implant surgery. After sufficient healing time, the patient will return to Dr. Mihalos’ Midtown New York City office for placement of the porcelain teeth on the implants. Dental implants may also be used to anchor loose or ill-fitting removable dentures to the jaw, eliminating the need for denture pastes and adhesives. Schedule an implant consultation with Dr. Mihalos to determine if dental implants are the right treatment for you.
