Dental Implants in New York

New York, NY Help! Dental Implants! Dental Implants in york

Dental implants can be an ideal solution to replacing damaged or missing teeth. They restore not only the functionality of teeth but also provide a great new look. Dental implants are a standard cosmetic dental option offered at Dr. Gauri Savant’s office.

People often assume that the gap left behind after losing a permanent adult tooth can remain empty. The reality is that an exposed tooth socket faces the risk of infection, can cause teeth to shift out of alignment, and lead to other issues. With dental implants, we help patients avoid these oral health problems. We have the tools and skills necessary to provide patients with customized dental implants to meet their specific needs. If you're in New York and looking for effective dental implants, we can provide the solution you need.

Dental implants can even help prevent changes in facial structure, offering the necessary functionality to perform as well as natural teeth. Supplementing them with a dental crown ensures the implant looks perfectly natural. If you are seeking a sturdy, lasting, and discreet replacement tooth, call us to learn more about our dental implant procedures today. Whether you are in New York or specifically seeking dental implants in New York City, our services are tailored to give you the best results.

The Process of Installing Implants

If one or more of your teeth fall out, you may qualify for dental implants to permanently replace the missing teeth. To find out, schedule an appointment with our New York dentist office by calling (212) 221-1481. We will examine your mouth and jawbone to determine if the procedure is right for you. Before we begin, your gums need to be healthy, and your jawbone needs to be strong. If we identify any cavities or signs of gum disease, we will need to treat them prior to the dental implant procedure. Once you are cleared, the staff at Dr. Gauri Savant will take an impression of your mouth to create a new tooth in a dental lab. Each synthetic tooth will match the size, shape, and color of the surrounding teeth, ensuring a completely natural appearance.

The next step is to implant a metal post under the gum line. This aspect of the procedure sets an implant apart from other forms of cosmetic dentistry. The metal post is secured to the jawbone, creating a durable, synthetic root system that rivals the strength of natural roots. Over a few months, the metal post and jawbone will fuse, creating unparalleled durability. Afterward, we will secure the new synthetic tooth to the metal post at the gum's surface. This new tooth is attached so securely that patients can eat their favorite foods, maintain an active lifestyle, and more without fear of their tooth becoming loose or falling out. Patients enjoy the benefits of never having to worry about their tooth again.

The team at Dr. Gauri Savant provides dental implants in a way that is both comfortable and functional. We ensure that every aspect of the procedure is completed correctly the first time.

Caring for Dental Implants

Once implants are installed, they are extremely easy to care for. We hear patients throughout New York ask questions ranging from “Do implants come out?” to “How do I brush my teeth?” Fortunately, the answers are simple. Since we install dental implants by creating a synthetic root system, they are durable and secure. The implants will not fall out or become loose, allowing you to play sports and engage in other activities without worry. To care for your implants, we advise brushing and flossing your teeth as normal. Additionally, it is important to schedule dental exams and cleanings with Dr. Gauri Savant at least twice a year. Our staff will help keep your teeth healthy.

While dental implants cannot become infected themselves, the surrounding teeth can. If you suffer from a severe case of gum disease or a dental abscess in the future, the infection can spread into your jawbone. This endangers your implants, as the jawbone must remain healthy to keep the implants secure. If you experience any pain, call (212) 221-1481 to schedule an appointment immediately. Following these simple preventative care steps will help ensure your implants and natural teeth remain in good health.


To find out if implants are right for you, call (212) 221-1481. The team at Dr. Gauri Savant is friendly, welcoming, and will inform you of all your options. We will make a detailed recommendation about the best choice for your oral health, customized to your needs. Remember, you can achieve a beautiful and natural-looking smile by working with a professional implant dentist. If you are suffering from missing teeth, we can help transform your smile. Schedule an appointment and let us create a smile as beautiful as you are.

Implant FAQ

  • Q: I need to replace two missing teeth next to each other. Can I just have one implant placed and attach it to one of my natural teeth to make a bridge?
    A: Generally, this is not a good idea. It is better not to attach implants to teeth. We frequently attach implants to each other, which improves strength and works well. Although it may be more expensive in the short term to place two implants instead of one, the long-term success is likely to be much better with two implants.

  • Q: I lost my upper back teeth on one side and have gone for years without doing anything about it. My sinuses always seem to bother me more on that side than on the side where I have back teeth. Could these problems be related?
    A: In most people missing upper back teeth for a long time, the maxillary sinus grows downward. This growth occurs at the expense of surrounding bone. If you are considering replacing those upper back teeth with fixed teeth, a sinus elevation procedure may be necessary to allow room for dental implants. This procedure increases the available bone to place implants and restore the missing teeth.

  • Q: I am missing all of my teeth and currently wear a full upper and lower denture. I can no longer tolerate my lowers. Will I need an implant for every tooth I am replacing on the lower jaw?
    A: It is not necessary to have an implant for every tooth being replaced. The number of implants needed depends on the type of implants and teeth (removable vs. non-removable) attached to them. A thorough oral exam and panoramic X-ray usually determine which and how many implants must be used.

  • Q: I consulted a dentist several years ago about using implants to replace my lower denture, and he told me that I did not have adequate bone to place enough in-the-bone implants without danger of fracturing my jawbone. Are there any alternatives?
    A: Advances in implantology have provided more choices and techniques. It is rare for a person to be unable to receive implants. Today, many types of implants accommodate multiple problems.

  • Q: I had a root canal on a tooth that fractured and now it has to be removed. Can it be replaced with an implant, or do I have to have a bridge or a partial?
    A: Teeth with root canals can fracture more easily because they are weaker and somewhat dehydrated. In the past, the best treatment was to remove the tooth and file down the adjacent teeth to make a bridge. However, in many cases, an implant can replace the fractured tooth without the need to grind down adjacent teeth.

Definition of Dental Implant Terminology

  • Abutment: A component that attaches to the dental implant, allowing a professional to place a dental crown, providing patients with an artificial, aesthetically pleasing, and fully-functional smile.
  • Bridge: Multiple replacement teeth fixed in place via attachment to dental implants, natural adjacent teeth, or a combination of both.
  • Dental Crown: An artificial tooth, usually made of porcelain, which covers the top of the implant to provide an aesthetically pleasing and fully-functional tooth.
  • Dental Implant: An artificial tooth root placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge. Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, injury, or other reasons.
  • Endosteal (endosseous): A type of dental implant placed in the alveolar and basal bone of the mandible that transcends only one cortical plate.
  • Eposteal (subperiosteal): A type of dental implant placed on the residual alveolar bone and primarily used when the bone height is minimal.
  • Osseointegration: The biological process by which bone fuses with a dental implant. This process provides a secure and long-lasting foundation for replacement teeth.
  • Sinus Lift Procedure: A procedure in which bone is added to the upper jaw in the area of the molars and premolars, sometimes needed when the sinus wall is very thin and dental implants need more bone height.
  • Titanium: A metal used for dental implants due to its biocompatibility and strength. Titanium alloys are commonly used for dental implants and the abutments attached to them.
