Dental implants are the most versatile tooth replacement option, offering comfortable, effective restoration for any number of missing teeth, from a single tooth to a full arch. The dental implant process includes two treatment phases: placement and restoration. While many dental practices offer implant restoration, Pelham Family Dental Arts offers both implant placement and restoration in one convenient location. We offer dental implant placement and restoration in our Pelham, NY office. Contact our dental team to schedule your dental implant consultation today.
Unlike other general dentistry practices, we don’t refer patients to an oral surgery practice for the placement of dental implant posts. Instead, our team of experts offer the entire implant supported tooth replacement process in one location. Tooth loss can be uncomfortable and stressful, and having to get acquainted with a new dentist, find a new practice, and handle all that comes with transferring information between offices is a hassle our patients don’t need at this difficult time. That’s why we have an oral surgeon on our team. Oral surgeons have advanced training to safely and successfully complete complex surgical treatments like dental implant placement. Rather than sending our patients out, we bring high quality, specialty care to them in the office they are already familiar with.
Dental Implant Crowns
Single teeth are replaced with dental crowns. A single implant is positioned below the gum line, and a dental crown is connected to the implant, which mimics the function of tooth roots. Crown and bridge tooth replacement can also be attached to two implants to replace two to four consecutive missing teeth. Like a traditional fixed bridge, two dental crowns support one or more replacement teeth. Unlike crown and bridge tooth replacement, implant supported bridges are attached to two implant posts rather than surrounding healthy teeth.
Partial and full dentures can also be mounted on dental implants in order to provide optimal stability. These prosthetics can be removable or fixed, depending on patient preference.
