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.

Do you have missing teeth that need to be replaced? If so, you will want to come to our dental practice to see if you are a good candidate for dental implants. If you have missing teeth, you want to make sure that you have them replaced so that adjacent teeth will not try to move into the area left by the missing teeth; this will cause serious orthodontic problems. An additional benefit of getting dental implants to replace the missing teeth is that the dental implant roots will serve to keep your jawbone healthy, as well as keep it from atrophying. This means that your youthful facial appearance will be able to be maintained. At our dental practice, Pine Ridge Dental, patients come to us for Duanesburg dental implants on a regular basis.

At our dental office our two expert and highly trained dentists are Dr. Don P. Evans and Dr. Rebecca S. Evans. If you come to our dental office wanting to get Duanesburg dental implants, our dentist will first need to examine your jawbone to make sure it is healthy enough and thick enough to hold the dental implant roots. Once this is determined to be the case, our dentist will be able to surgically insert a titanium dental implant root into your jawbone for each tooth that is going to be replaced. Afterwards, there will be a healing period of several months during which time the jawbone completely heals and the dental implant roots will fully fuse to the jawbone.

Once the Duanesburg dental implants have completely fused to your jawbone, our dentist will then permanently attach a porcelain crown to the top portion of each dental implant. At this point, your dental implants will be complete and you will be able to smile and speak again with total confidence. You will also be able to eat anything you want without ever having to worry that the dental implants will slip or will cause you any type of mouth pain. Dental implants look, feel, and function just like permanent teeth. If well taken care of with regular brushing and flossing, and with periodic teeth cleanings at our dental practice, there is no reason why your dental implants should not last you for a lifetime. If you would like to meet with our dentist regarding getting dental implants, simply contact us today.
