Dental implants, NYC: Esthetic Implants with Natural Pink

  1. 1. Dental implants, NYC: Esthetic Implants with Natural PinkDental implants, while more commonplace and accepted as a “routine” dental procedure, arestill undergoing refinements in New York City. No longer are we satisfied with the fact that thejaw bone has fused to the implant – we call this osseointegration – but we strive for the mostesthetic outcome possible. Dentists need to be vigilant about how thin or thick a patient’s gumtissue is. We call this the “biotype.” When the tissue is thick, dental implant esthetics are easierto achieve. If the tissue is thin, as in this example, the implant can be seen through the gums,giving it a gray hue.Thin tissue permits implant to be visible through gumsWhile virtually all dental implants are composed of titanium, and regardless of how the surfaceis roughened to enhance bone attachment, the implants are gray. To date, attempts tomake “white” dental implants have not been all that successful. But now, there is a new implantby Keystone Dental, Inc., that addresses this important esthetic issue.
  2. 2. Keystone has created the “Genesis” implant that has a pink collar that is called, AnaTite™ thatprojects a hue that resembles gingival tissue. Not only is the collar pink on this dental implant,but the abutment which supports the crown, is also pink.The result is an esthetic crown, supported by a stable dental implant under the gums.The picture, below demonstrates the cosmetic benefit of using the Genesis dental implant inNYC.
  3. 3. Dental implants in New York City are a successful procedure that can be enhanced by the typeof implant used. While most implants osseointegrate, the biotype of a patient’s gingival mayaffect the esthetic outcome. Patients needing implants in NYC should become familiar with theirtissue type, whether it is thin or thick, and what cosmetic outcome can be expected from a NewYork City periodontist inserting a dental implant.
