Implant to replace a single tooth
It is critical to replace a missing tooth, but not only for aesthetic reasons. A missing tooth will lead to the drifting of adjacent teeth, bone loss, overuse of the remaining teeth, and even changes in facial contour.
There are several options to replace a missing tooth. The most common ones are bridge and dental implant. While a bridge can provide an aesthetic and a satisfactory functional solution, a dental implant is a far more superior option for a tooth replacement.
For a bridge to be placed, the adjacent teeth have to be “prepared,” which is a nice way of saying that they actually need to be filed down, leading sometimes to root canal treatment, and then capped with a crown as part of the final bridge. Needless to say, those previously healthy, intact teeth are now compromised, which makes them more susceptible to future problems. With a Rochester dental implant, on the other hand, the entire missing tooth (including the root) is replaced without having to compromise the adjacent teeth. Made of titanium, the dental implant is a durable tooth root replacement. The implant and abutment work as a base for the final crown that will be your new, natural-looking tooth.
Dental implants have many benefits over bridges, including:
- Tooth preservation: Unlike bridges, implants do not require the grinding down of neighboring teeth, so your remaining dental structure stays intact.
- Bone preservation: Because the implant replaces the tooth root, it transmits chewing forces to the jaw, thus helping to maintain bone strength and prevent bone loss.
- Natural look and feel: Besides looking natural, implants feel natural, so you can eat the foods you like with confidence.
- Long-term success: A dental implant is designed to be a life-long solution, whereas a bridge typically has to be replaced several times over the years.
Although a dental implant may initially cost slightly more, it proves to be a more cost-effective solution in the long run.
A bridge is a structure made of three parts: two crowns and a false tooth that “hangs” between them over the space of the missing tooth. In order to place the crowns on the adjacent teeth, those healthy teeth have to be prepared by grinding them down to hold the crowns.
A superior alternative to a bridge is a Dental Implant, and Dr. Zahavi is your Rochester dental implant specialist.
The first thing you notice about a dental implant is how closely it resembles your natural tooth.
The entire missing tooth, including the root, is replaced without having to compromise the adjacent teeth. Made of titanium, the dental implant is a durable tooth root replacement. The implant and abutment work as a base for the final crown that will be your new, natural-looking, and fully functional tooth.

Dental Implants to secure your denture
Dental implants can counteract many of those shortcomings. By placing a few dental implants in the bone and securing the dentures to the implants, we can obtain more comfortable, functional, and aesthetic dentures. Further bone loss is also prevented because the implant acts as an artificial tooth root. Wouldn’t you like to smile and eat the foods you like with confidence? Call us to schedule your free Rochester dental implant consultation.
The Hybrid Denture is a major upgrade to the conventional, removable dentures. Because removable dentures rest directly on the gums, they often become unstable and painful. The Hybrid Denture, on the other hand, is fixed to 4-6 dental implants that are anchored to the jaw bone like natural teeth, thus providing better function and esthetics.
The dental implants also help maintain the volume of the jaw bone, thus preventing the sunken-in appearance often seen in patients with conventional, removable dentures.
The Hybrid Denture can fit most people with a denture, and often the patient leaves our office with a fixed restoration (cannot be removed by the patient) the same day the implants are placed. The result is a fixed, comfortable, and natural looking teeth replacement solution. This may be the solution you have been looking for. Call us today for a complementary implant consultation.
