Our Most Common Dental Implant Questions

Dental implants replace the roots and crowns of unsalvageable or missing teeth. They have three main components: a screw-like titanium post that’s inserted into your jaw in place of a tooth root; a sturdy, realistic-looking crown that fills in gaps between your teeth and allows you to eat and speak normally; and an abutment, the connector between the other two parts. The implant post permanently fuses with your jawbone within a few months, providing a permanent hold. Insertion of the post is called placement. Topping the post with a crown is called restoration. Our doctors do both right here in our Canandaigua, NY office.

We offer anesthetic during every placement procedure to help you stay calm and comfortable. Additionally, our doctors offer advanced IV sedation, which can help you completely relax while receiving implants. What’s more, our guided implant surgery technology enables us to pre-plan the procedure and precisely and comfortably place your dental implants, minimizing the likelihood of complications.

We can rebuild your bone mass to make you a candidate for dental implants through a procedure called bone grafting.

The cost depends on the number of implants you need, and any prerequisite procedures we may have to perform, such as tooth extractions and bone grafting. Drs. Charles and Kashi can help you determine your specific cost with a free consultation at our Canandaigua, NY office. Schedule yours soon!

Dental implants are just like real teeth and need the same kind of daily care. Brush and floss them twice a day and come to us for routine cleanings to keep your new teeth healthy.

While dentures are a long-proven tooth replacement method, they are prone to slipping out of place while you’re eating or speaking, even when you’re using adhesives. Dental implants are a fixed, dependable solution that preserves your jawbone with artificial roots and mirrors your natural teeth in form, function, and appearance. They are the best overall choice to replace severely decayed or missing teeth.
