Dental implants are metal posts or screws that are surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath your gums. Once in place, they allow our dentist to mount replacement teeth onto them.
What is the cost? Dental implants are usually more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, and most insurance carriers typically cover less than 10 percent of the fees, however, implants last longer and produce a more natural feeling of a tooth. If you’re interested in replacing a missing tooth or teeth, dental implants may be an option for you. Most people are good candidates for implants.
A good candidate should have the following: Healthy gums. Enough bone to anchor the implants in the jaw: some people who have bone loss still can get implants, but first the bone must be rebuilt using special procedures. A commitment to care of the implanted teeth and surrounding gums: daily brushing and flossing are essential as well as regular visits to the dentist for follow-up
Some people may not be good candidates for implants. They include: Young people whose jawbones have not stopped growing. Pregnant women. Heavy smokers: smoking hinders healing in the mouth. It can reduce the likelihood of a successful implant. Alcohol or substance abusers who are not prepared to follow the dentist’s instructions after placement of the implant, such as no smoking, and returning for follow-up. People with various chronic diseases and/or systemic problems.
Dental implants are the best long-term solution for missing teeth. At Albany County Dental Associates, we use a medical grade titanium fixture that actually fuses to living bone, and place a permanent crown on the implant. This results in teeth that look and feel completely natural.If you have lost a single tooth due to an accident or from periodontal disease, that one tooth can be easily replaced using a single dental implant. Your new tooth will look and function just like your other natural teeth.Occasionally a patient is missing more than one tooth, but still has healthy gums and surrounding teeth. Several fixtures are implanted and the crowns are attached, leaving other natural teeth intact.Albany County Dental Associates uses state-of-the art dental implant technology allowing us to deliver the highest quality service to our patients. 3D dental CAT scans and 3D planning software enable us to measure the density and quantity of your jawbone with greater precision than ever before.
Dentures are removable appliances that can replace missing teeth and help restore your smile. If you’ve lost all of your natural teeth, whether from gum disease, tooth decay or injury, replacing missing teeth will benefit your appearance and your health. That’s because dentures make it easier to eat and speak better than you could without teeth—things that people often take for granted.
Partial Dentures. You can smile confidently again with the help of a custom, natural-looking flexible, metal-free partial denture created just for you. Partial dentures, also known as overdentures, replace several missing teeth, but some of the patient’s natural teeth remain. Unlike implant dentures, removable dentures are not anchored into the jaw, so the patient will be able to take their dentures out as needed for cleaning or other reasons.
Partial dentures, also knows as partial plates, are a great solution if you are missing some teeth because the denture fills the gaps in your smile. Talking and eating is easier, as well as restoring your natural smile and the full function of your mouth.
