Whether your teeth are missing because of an injury or accident, gum disease, tooth decay, age or other reasons, Dr. Wallach offers a wide range of natural looking replacement options in his downtown Nyack office.
Tooth loss creates a range of problems for patients from emotional and social concerns to sometimes serious medical conditions. Once a tooth is lost, the bone begins to deteriorate. It will continue to deteriorate if no treatment is sought, making replacement options more and more difficult and potentially affecting other teeth. For this reason, missing teeth should be treated as quickly as possible.
Missing Teeth Options
There are a variety of options available for replacing missing teeth. Dr. Wallach will perform a comprehensive evaluation to diagnose your specific condition and make recommendations for the best long term results. Our goal is to restore your smile to its natural function with optimal health and esthetics.
- Dental Implants – Dental implants are the most lifelike replacements for missing teeth. They are a permanent solution for tooth loss, with a greater than 95% success rate. Dental implants are virtually indistinguishable from your natural teeth. In fact, many patients say that they forget they even have a dental implant.Dr. Wallach offers complete services for dental implants. A local oral surgeon comes to our Nyack dental office for the placement of the dental implant post. This offers more convenient treatment and more predictable results.
- Dentures and Partial Dentures – Used for centuries to replace missing teeth, dentures and partial dentures can be a very effective solution for missing teeth. Dr. Wallach offers a variety of dentures including implant supported dentures which offer better retention and long term benefits compared to traditional removable dentures.
- Dental Bridges – A dental bridge can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. There are many types of dental bridges available including implant secured dental bridges which are permanent and extremely natural looking.
