Rochester NY Dental Implants
Tooth loss can occur for a variety of different reasons, like disease, trauma and poor dental health. If you have a missing tooth or teeth, dental implants may be right for you. Dental implants provide a permanent solution for the replacement of missing teeth—restoring your ability to eat and speak, improving the appearance of your teeth, and restoring your ability to smile with confidence.
What is a dental implant?
Dental implants are extremely safe and have been used in dentistry for nearly 40 years. The implants themselves are titanium root replacements that are gently, surgically placed into the jawbone where teeth are missing. These anchors act as tooth root substitutes. Once healed, implants provide the strong foundation for a crown or “cap” to be placed. Dental implants look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. Best of all, dental implants are permanent and can last a lifetime with proper care.
Why choose dental implants?
Dental implants are often preferred over other restorative dental treatments like partials or dentures for several reasons. It is not beneficial to your oral health to sacrifice the structure of surrounding teeth to bridge a space with a dental partial or bridge. A partial requires having some form of clasp that attaches to your natural teeth to hold it in place, which can weaken those supporting teeth. As for dentures, many patients complain that they are uncomfortable and can slip when trying to eat, speak or sneeze—which can be rather embarrassing.
Dr. Sarah Smith will create a cosmetic dentistry treatment plan based on your personal needs and desires—and work within your budget, too. This individualized plan will help you accomplish the smile you desire.
