It used to be that dentures and bridges were the treatment of choice for missing teeth but dentistry has in recent decades turned to dental implants as the go to restoration procedure. Our practice Michael J. Weiss & Associates specializes in Sunnyside implants with a state-of-the-art office equipped with the latest in dental equipment and technology. Our practice improves the lives of our patients who no longer suffer from the embarrassment of missing teeth or the inconvenience of dentures.
Sunnyside implants are the foundation of the replacement tooth, as they become the roots of the new tooth. Our doctor surgically places a titanium anchor in the jawbone where the missing tooth was and covers the area with the gums. Over time the implant bonds with the bone, essentially become a part of it. This creates a very strong base for the replacement tooth. A post is inserted into the titanium anchor and when the area has healed the dentist will place a crown on top of the post creating the finished tooth. The new tooth looks and functions just as the real teeth around it. Our patients are free to eat whatever they want and care for the new tooth just as they do for the rest of their teeth. The implanted tooth is permanent and should last as long as the patient’s natural teeth if not longer.
At the end of the implant procedure our patients enjoy an appearance that boasts a restored smile featuring a full mouth of teeth, with no discomfort or possibility of slippage like the condition that plagues many denture wearers. Our doctor also uses Sunnyside implants as a way of securing dentures and bridges, which makes them much more stable than traditional adhesives. If missing teeth troubles you please let our doctors evaluate your dental health and see if implants are right for you.
