Our natural-looking dental implants are an effective way to restore one or more missing teeth or even a full arch. Implants are permanently secured to your jawbone, so they’ll never come out or slide around. This preferred tooth loss method looks and feels completely natural, seamlessly blending in with your smile.
Dentures & Partials
If you’re missing an entire arch or all your teeth, dentures are a cost-efficient and comfortable tooth replacement option. They restore your ability to chew and speak with ease while helping to enhance the appearance of your facial structure.
Our New York practice offers several denture options including complete and partial dentures depending on your individual needs. No matter which option you choose, we’ll help get your smile back on track.
If you have a cavity, we’ll remove the decayed portion of your tooth and restore it with a natural-looking, composite resin filling. They’re stronger and more attractive than metal fillings, and they bond directly with the tooth structure for unmatched convenience. This eliminates spaces where dangerous bacteria can accumulate.
Frequently Asked Questions
Composite fillings, commonly known as tooth-colored fillings, can last up to 20 years with good oral hygiene and bi-annual visits at Healthy Chelsea Dental. However, the filling’s life expectancy also depends on the size and location of the filling, along with your eating habits. Fillings may need to be replaced due to general wear or excessive grinding, clenching, signs of decay, chipping, and cracking.
After tooth extraction, it can take anywhere from six to eight weeks for your gums to heal before you can get fitted for dentures. This allows time for the swelling to dissipate and your new dentures will have a better fit, so your smile will be comfortable and built to last a lifetime.
Both full and partial dentures can be secured with natural-looking, lasting dental implants for patients who want a more stable restoration. However, partial dentures are specifically used for patients with some of their natural teeth remaining to fill in any gaps in their smile. For patients missing an entire arch of teeth, full dentures are used to restore the look, feel, and function of your natural smile.
Yes! It’s possible to get dental implants if you have gum disease. However, Dr. Boyd will require you to undergo a supplemental procedure, like periodontal treatment, to restore the health of your gums before receiving your implants. This will better prepare you for successful dental implant placement and ensure long-lasting, effective results.
