See How Our Dental Implants in Westchester can Transform How You Feel about Your Smile
Replacing Missing Teeth
The health of your teeth and gums is directly connected to your overall wellness. Replacing your missing and decayed teeth can not only benefit you cosmetically, but it will also have many practical benefits as well. With certain types of restorative dentistry procedures, you will be able to perform everyday functions more easily and comfortably. Our dental implants in Westchester, NY give patients the ability to chew foods they may have otherwise given up, and it would also help improve their speaking abilities. They are completely secure due to the titanium screw that holds them in place, so they act just like natural teeth.

Restorative Dentistry Options
Ghobadi Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery offers several methods of restoring your smile. Our team will work with you to determine which method would best suit your needs! You can choose either a temporary replacement or a permanent solution to help improve the appearance of your smile. Restorative dentistry is meant to help patients who may have experienced tooth loss or have extremely damaged teeth. Tooth damage can happen to anyone, whether from decay or from blunt force trauma. We want to help our patients receive the best possible care so that they can go back to being happy and confident!
Certain factors can influence whether or not you are eligible for certain restorative dentistry options such as a history of poor dental hygiene, smoking, chronic illness, or exposure to radiation therapy. Consult with your dentist and/or Dr. Ghobadi to determine which, if any, restorative dentistry options would be right for you.
A fixed bridge is a permanent replacement for a row of teeth. They are held in place by two “anchor teeth” with the false teeth in between. They can also be held in place by our Westchester dental implants. Bridges can be used to replace missing teeth or to permanently cover damaged teeth. The damaged natural teeth will be either removed or ground down and then the bridge will be permanently cemented over them.
A flipper is a removable partial denture that is typically meant to be a temporary replacement if you have experienced tooth loss. They are made of acrylic to resemble natural teeth and gums and are sometimes held in place by your natural teeth. They tend to resemble a retainer with false teeth attached.
A metal partial allows you to replace several teeth at once without sacrificing the integrity of your healthy natural teeth. This type of partial is lightweight but is held firmly by a metal base pressed against the natural teeth. It also has a plastic gum line to give the appearance of a natural gum line. Metal partials are more expensive than plastic partials.
Dentures are a common way to restore teeth, though they can be inconvenient for some patients. Dentures allow patients to replace their full set of teeth or an entire row on their upper or lower jaw. The downside to dentures is that they can be a little clumsy and awkward for some patients due to their size and shape. Dentures use suction to stay in place, but they can also slip and cause difficulty for everyday activities. If you feel that the size and shape of the dentures do not fit your facial structure, you may want to consider alternative restorative options.
Here at Dr. Ghobadi’s office, we believe that dental implants in Westchester, NY are one of the best long-term solutions to restoring your smile.

Implants are secure in place and will likely never need to be replaced or repaired as long as they are properly taken care of. Dental implants will never damage or compromise your healthy smile, but they will allow you to perform everyday tasks that may have given you trouble otherwise.
