Dental Implants

Today there is a new way to view tooth replacement. Although dental implants have been used by dentists for several years, they are still catching on as the new standard of restoration. Unlike restorations that sit on top of the gums, dental implants are full tooth replacements, meaning that they replace both the tooth and the root structure.

By design, dental implant restorations closely replicate the entire natural tooth structure, making this treatment suitable in a number of situations. By replacing the root as well as the tooth, an implant has the highest long-term success rate of any tooth replacement technique to date. Many people who have replaced lost teeth with dental implants find lifelong function comes from this treatment. With dental implants, which are suitable for adults of all ages, the smile can be restored to a fully functional, highly natural state.

There are many benefits of dental implants, which can be used to replace a single tooth or all teeth. When used instead of a dental bridge, a dental implant can save two healthy teeth from modification. These prosthetic teeth are made with biocompatible materials that are accepted into the natural jawbone structure, fusing with bone tissue over time. All parts of the implant are resistant to corrosion and decay, eliminating the risk of cavities in these teeth. Because implants replace root structure as well as tooth structure, there is no bone loss as there is with alternative treatments. This means that facial contours are more easily maintained.

Dr. Church is a member of the American College of Oral Implantology, and has the extensive training to complete this course of treatment successfully, restoring natural beauty and function to your smile after the loss of permanent teeth.

I started going to Washington Street Dentistry when I moved to Irvington a few years ago. I relocated about an hour away and still make the trip down to see Dr. Church as this is the best dentist I’ve been to. The staff are great and Dr. Church has always done a wonderful job! My visits have always been painless and they always take the time to answer any questions I may have. I would highly recommend them!
