There are many types of dental implants available, and a variety of ways to use them. Woodstock General & Implant Dentistry chooses BioHorizons® dental implants to replace patients’ missing teeth.  Our success rates have proven that the products from BioHorizons® are second to none when it comes to providing the longest lasting, strongest, most natural-looking and fully functioning tooth replacement available.

 

Single Implant Crowns

When a missing or failing tooth requires replacement, there is no more durable solution than a crown supported by a single dental implant. This is the simplest type of implant, with one implant and one crown. The crown (or single tooth) may be made from traditional porcelain or state-of-the-art Prettau® Zirconia – an exceptionally durable material that possesses many of the same qualities of your natural teeth and is virtually indistinguishable within your smile.

Multi-Implant Bridges

When larger gaps in your bite or smile occur due to multiple tooth loss or failure, a series of teeth supported by two or more implants is the best solution.  Again, the same revolutionary Prettau® Zirconia material can be customized to produce exceptionally durable and functional bridges. Prettau Anterior® restorations are uniquely suited for the front of the mouth when neglect or injury have caused the loss of teeth visible in your smile.

Implant-Supported Dentures

Put the days of messy adhesives, ill-fitting dentures, and discomfort behind you. With implant-supported dentures, you can enjoy the benefits of a complete and beautiful smile without the hassle of removing your teeth every night or having them slip or fall out when chewing or speaking. Supported by just a few strong titanium dental implants, dentures can provide the same function and aesthetic appeal as a natural smile. Replacing your teeth with implant-supported dentures can preserve bone structure and soft tissue to keep your mouth and face looking young and healthy.

Conventional Dentures

Conventional dentures may be removable or fixed. Removable dentures are taken out of the mouth at night for cleaning and disinfecting, then inserted and held in place using denture adhesives.  Fixed dentures are only removed by your dentist.  They are supported by a series of dental implants to which the denture is attached.

A conventional denture is made and placed after any remaining natural teeth have been removed and tissues have healed. This can take a month or more. Immediate dentures are inserted as soon as the remaining teeth are removed.

For patients seeking a truly permanent solution, our practice provides Full-Arch Prettau® Zirconia bridges as the founding member of the Teeth Tomorrow® Network of Advanced Implant Dentists. These natural-looking teeth and gums supported by dental implants are sculpted from a single piece of non-porous material that does not attract plaque, stains, or odors.

Prettau® Zirconia Full- Arch Bridges

Woodstock General & Implant Dentistry is the Founding Practice of the Teeth Tomorrow Network of Advanced Implant Dentists, exclusively providing this life-changing procedure to patients throughout the Hudson Valley.

Prettau® Zirconia Full-Arch Bridges are made from a state-of-the-art material to not only be resistant to chips and fractures, but to also be able to permanently bond with custom shades and colors to produce the natural appearance of healthy teeth and gums.

Prettau® Zirconia is both highly durable (to eliminate wear from biting, chewing and talking) and just flexible enough to be sculpted and shaped to your specific requirements.  It is non-porous and has a high-density and produces a bridge with a smoother finish than those made from other materials. Your finished bridge resists stains and doesn’t absorb odors or attract plaque and bacteria.

It is truly the proven, permanent solution for patients suffering from major dental problems.

Benefits of Dental Implants

Choosing The Best Option

Upon their debut, dental implants became a revolutionary tooth replacement option, and there are many benefits of dental implants. Over the decades, many more advances have been made, and Woodstock General & Implant Dentistry has continued to improve the way that implants benefit your smile, your health, and your life.

The Right Choice to Replace Missing Teeth

If you spent too many years not taking care of your teeth, or suffered an injury that caused severe damage, you may be living without a complete smile. If you have one or more missing teeth, dental implants are probably your best tooth-replacement option. These small, durable titanium screws are placed into your jawbone to mimic the root of your missing tooth and support a natural-looking restoration. As soon as you lose a tooth, your jawbone begins to deteriorate, and your remaining teeth start to shift out of place. By replacing it with a dental implant, you are providing support to your entire facial structure.

The Permanent Solution for Denture Wearers

Wearing removable dentures can be an incredible hassle. If they don’t fit properly in your mouth, they cause pain, slip, and slide while you speak or eat, and require messy adhesives.

At Woodstock General & Implant Dentistry, we provide dental implants and implant-supported dentures for patients just like you. Replacing your removable denture with something more permanent, longer-lasting, and more natural-looking, will improve both your smile and your quality of life.

Stop worrying that your teeth will slip out, and rest assured that your implant-supported dentures won’t fail you. Restore your ability to chew and speak with confidence – see if implant-supported dentures or a full-arch restoration such as the Prettau® Implant Bridge are right for you.
