Dental Implants An Overview
Replacing a missing tooth is an integral part of restoring function and health to your smile. Whether you are missing one or more teeth, we can use dental implants to restore your lost teeth. An implant is a small titanium post that a skilled dentist surgically places into the jaw bone. Once the implants fuse, we can place a dental crown, denture, or bridge to restore your smile.
Both Dr. Peter Auster and Dr. Frances Tang have advanced training in implant dentistry, making them the ideal partners in your tooth replacement journey. Dr. Tang, a fellow of The International Congress of Oral Implantologist, is uniquely skilled in handling many phases of the implant process. Her modern outlook on implant dentistry enables her to restore natural looking, long lasting smiles. Under the care of experienced dentists like Dr. Tang and Dr. Auster, you can look forward to smiling confidently again.
Dental implants are one of the most sought after solutions for missing teeth in modern dentistry. In many cases, implants are the ideal solutions for missing teeth. If you would like to learn more about implants, visit Cosmetic Dentistry Associates in Pomona, NY.
Benefits of Dental Implants
Implants are often the ideal solution for tooth replacement because they replace both the tooth root and the visible portion of the tooth. Also, they do not rely on the adjacent teeth for support, and they are the only replacement option that encourages bone regeneration in the jaw.
Dental implants also offer these advantages:
- Convenience: Implants are a permanent solution for missing teeth. You should care for them as you would your natural teeth.
- Beauty: Implant restorations are often created using dental porcelain, which can be manipulated to resemble your natural teeth.
- Comfort: Your implants are designed especially for you. A custom restoration will fit comfortably over your implants, allowing you to make the most out of your new smile.
- Stability: Dental implants improves stability for your final restoration. An implant secured restoration won’t slip or loosen.
- Improved Dental Health: Implants can reduce the risk of jaw bone deterioration after tooth loss.
Candidacy For Dental Implants
If you are missing one or several teeth, then you may be a candidate for the dental implant procedure. to narrow the scope, the ideal candidate for dental implants will need to have an adequate amount of healthy bone structure to help support the implant.
Our team will evaluate your teeth and surrounding bone structure to determine if you are an ideal candidate for dental implants. Advancements in dentistry have provided solutions for patients who were previously not ideal candidates for the dental implant procedure. Depending on the condition of your smile, we may suggest solutions such as implant site development, bone grafting, or sinus lift augmentation to increase your chances of successful implant surgery.

My experience with Cosmetic Dentistry is one I won’t forget for a very long time, inasmuch as it was one of the most pleasant medical procedures I have endured. From the time I was introduced to Dr. Frances Tang, her assistants and staff, I met with professionalism, kindness, pleasantries and comfort. Dr. Tang was able to diagnose my dental problems and lay out a treatment plan, which included mini implants that resulted in complete mouth rehabilitation. Over the months, the staff became my medical family, and I knew no dread when “going to the dentist”. The overall results were so satisfying to me and the compliments I receive are daily. I smile more and don’t hide from the camera. Thank you Dr. Tang, Loretta, Diana, Nora, Denise and all who made me proud to recommend Cosmetic Dentistry to my family and friends. You know, I kind of miss all of them now that my appointments have ended.
