Broken Tooth - Canandaigua, NY

Badly Broken Tooth?

Dental Implants Can Save the Day

A broken tooth makes daily activities painful and awkward. Eating is uncomfortable. Speaking makes you self-conscious. You can smile, but you don’t want to. When not caused by trauma, a broken tooth is often the result of a weakening of its structure caused by ongoing internal decay. Left in your mouth, a tooth like this can spread infection to adjacent teeth and the underlying jawbone. While we always try to avoid tooth extractions and preserve your natural teeth, when decay reaches an advanced level, extraction is usually the best course for your dental and overall health. If this becomes necessary, count on the well-practiced skill and compassion of Dr. Germain Jean-Charles and Dr. Ajay Kashi. They’ll ensure you are pain- and stress-free during extraction with IV sedation or other anesthetic options. Trained in a variety of preventive procedures, they can also recommend a course of treatment after your tooth has been removed. For many patients with an extraction tooth, a dental implant is often the best option.

Restoring Your Smile

A missing tooth is not only a blemish on your smile, it can lead to more serious dental health issues requiring further treatment. Your jawbone stays strong through regular stimulation from chewing. Parts of the bone that aren’t supporting tooth roots are susceptible to decay that can ultimately cause the bone to recede. Titanium posts, the primary below-the-gums component of dental implants, fill in for those tooth roots and keep the jawbone healthy. Above the gums, implants give you an attractive, durable crown that can function just like a natural crown for a lifetime with proper care. Drs. Charles and Kashi have extensive training and experience in placing dental implants. What’s more, their proven guided implant surgery system yields consistent, predictable, and dazzling results.
