Croton-on-Hudson NY dental implant
If you have missing teeth, you may be investigating different types of tooth replacement methods. At our dental practice, Smile Style Contemporary Dental Arts, our expert dentist, Dr. Ilya Sapozhnik, will assess your individual situation and let you know if you are a better candidate to get a Croton-on-Hudson NY dental implant or dentures.
When you have a missing tooth or teeth, they can either be replaced with a Croton-on-Hudson NY dental implant, fixed or removable bridges, or dentures. Our dentist will let you know which type of tooth replacement method will work best for you, and talk to you about your different options. Today, dentures or bridges can even be supported with dental implants. So, as you can see, there are many options available. If you have one missing tooth, it can either be replaced with a single dental implant, or with a dental bridge. When you have many missing teeth, you can also get dentures or dental implants. When this is the case, you will probably be wondering about the benefits of dental implants versus dentures. At our dental practice we certainly do not believe in a one-size-fits-all solution for patients. Our dentist will carefully assess your individual needs and desires regarding your tooth replacement. Dental implants are a very popular tooth replacement method because they look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. And if well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing and professional dental cleanings, they should last you for a lifetime. However, getting dental implants is not the best solution for all patients. In order to get dental implants, your jawbone must be thick enough and healthy enough to withstand dental implant surgery. Dentures do not call for any type of oral surgery. Dental implants take many months to be completed, while a patient can get comfortable and well-fitting dentures in a matter of weeks. Additionally, it is often more expensive to get dental implants, so you will want to take your budget into consideration.

Invisalign dentist in Croton-on-Hudson
If you are regretting the fact that you never had your teeth straightened when you were a teen, you may want to visit our office, Smile Style Contemporary Dental Arts. And our dental practice, our Invisalign dentist in Croton-on-Hudson, Dr. Ilya Sapozhnik, can treat you with Invisalign invisible braces, which will give you the smile of your dreams!
Invisalign has become known as invisible braces because it uses clear plastic aligners to straighten a patient’s teeth. The patient will have their own individual set of aligners which is created using CAD/CAM computer technology. Depending on the bite situation being corrected, a series of aligners will have anywhere between 15 and 45 aligners in it. Each aligner is worn for about two weeks and will slowly move teeth into position until they are ready for the next aligner. Once you have finished wearing the last aligner in the series, you will have your beautiful new smile. During this treatment time you will visit our Invisalign dentist in Croton-on-Hudson about once every six weeks to make sure that your treatment plan is progressing as it should. Our patients thoroughly enjoy treatment with Invisalign because it means that they are able to have their teeth orthodontically corrected without needing to be embarrassed by having to wear braces made of metal wires and brackets. And, treatment with Invisalign takes about the same treatment time as using traditional braces. The average treatment time for patients who use Invisalign is about 11 months. During this treatment period, you can also eat anything you like because the clear plastic aligners are removed during meals, and so that you can thoroughly brush and floss your teeth on a daily basis.

Croton-on-Hudson cosmetic dentist
If you are thinking about getting dental implants to replace your missing teeth, you will want to visit us at our dental practice, Smile Style Contemporary Dental Arts. Our Croton-on-Hudson cosmetic dentist will be able to examine your individual dental situation and let you know which type of teeth replacement method will work best for you.
When you first come to see our Croton-on-Hudson cosmetic dentist to get dental implants, our dentist, Dr. Ilya Sapozhnik, will assess the health of your jawbone to make sure that you are able to successfully get dental implants. If it is determined that your jawbone is not thick enough or healthy enough to withstand the dental implant surgery, our dentist can provide you with a bone grafting treatment which will help ensure that your jawbone becomes thick enough and healthy enough to be able to successfully hold the dental implants firmly in place. Once it is determined that you are a good candidate for dental implant surgery, and any bone grafts have healed, our dentist will then surgically insert a dental implant root into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Today, dental implants can also be used to hold dental bridges as well as full dentures. Our dentist can speak to you about all the different treatment options which are available to you. When getting individual dental implants, our dentist will monitor your progress until it is determined that your implants have firmly fused to the jawbone and that the healing time for the jawbone has completed. At this point, our dentist will provide you with a beautiful porcelain crown which is permanently attached to the top of the dental implant root. The crown will perfectly color-match adjacent teeth so no one will be able to tell that you even have a dental implant in your mouth. At this point, your dental implant is complete and you will be able to once again speak, eat, and smile with total confidence.
