Pittsford, NY area patients who have experienced the loss of natural teeth are often concerned about the various options available to them for tooth replacement and want to take the time to learn about what their choices may be. One of the most popular ways for patients to permanently replace their natural teeth is with dental implants. Dental implants are the gold standard in tooth replacement and allows patients the opportunity to improve their smile in a more permanent manner.
What Are Dental Implants?
Restorative dental implants are titanium posts that are implanted surgically into the bone of the jaw to give them a proper foundation. They are then restored over the top with crowns, porcelain bridges, or full dentures. These restorations allow for continued bone growth and maintenance, unlike the other options used to replace missing teeth.
Why are dental implants a beneficial solution for tooth replacement?
Dr. Thomas J. DeStefano, dentist of DeStefano Dentistry, encourages patients to consider dental implants for tooth replacement. There are several advantages to dental implants versus bridges and dentures. Dental implants are:
- A smart investment
- A permanent replacement
- Perfect for maintaining bone structure
- A stabilizer for full dentures
- A standalone option
- Stronger and more durable
Who is a candidate?
Patients with sufficient bone structure will find that they may be an appropriate candidate for the placement of dental implants. To determine this, the dentist may need to take a series of x-rays to check the bone and to plan precision placement options. Dr. Thomas J. DeStefano can make recommendations in regards to the best tooth replacement solutions once patients have attended their initial evaluation and spoke with a professional.
Dental implants are a wonderful solution for many patients seeking permanent tooth replacement.
