If you have missing teeth that need to be replaced, you should visit us at Pine Ridge Dental. Our dentist will assess your individual situation and let you know which type of tooth replacement method will work best for you. If you want to get a dental implant in Rotterdam NY, or get dentures, we can provide either treatment for you, and also discuss the benefits of dental implants versus dentures.
At our dental practice, you will be seen by one of our two expert dentists, either Dr. Don P. Evans or Dr. Rebecca Evans. If you have a missing tooth and want to get a dental implant in Rotterdam NY, we can provide this treatment for you as long as your jawbone is healthy enough and thick enough to withstand the dental implant treatment. If your jawbone is not in the best condition, or you do not want to have oral surgery, you may prefer to get dentures. However, many people prefer dental implants because dental implants look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. Also, once you receive the dental implant, it should never need to be replaced. A drawback to dental implants is that the entire dental implant process will take many months, as the dental implant root must fuse to the jawbone and the jawbone needs to completely heal before the final porcelain crown can be attached. If you are getting dentures, you can usually receive your new dentures in simply a matter of weeks. If teeth need to be first extracted, it may be a few months before you can get your final dentures. Additionally, dental implants are generally more expensive than dentures. Our dentist will be happy to discuss all the pros and cons of each treatment as it applies to your particular case.
