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.
