Cohoes, NY dentist Dr. Frederick Marra offers a comprehensive range of treatment options for replacing lost and missing teeth. Prompt and effective tooth replacement is the key to enjoying the best possible quality of life as well as restoring the aesthetics of your smile for confidence in professional and social interactions. Left untreated, missing teeth lead to complex dental problems as a result of bone loss, shifting teeth and changes in the fit of the bite. Many patients experience periodontal disease, which threatens the integrity of remaining teeth.
During an initial consultation, Dr. Marra will thoroughly evaluate your dental health in order to determine suitable options for tooth replacement. He will take the time to discuss your personal concerns, cosmetic goals and budget before creating a personalized treatment plan to replace your missing teeth and give you back a smile you can feel good about.
Missing Teeth: Treatment Options
After your dental exam and consultation, Dr. Marra will recommend replacing missing teeth with one of the following treatment options:
- Dental bridges: used to replace one or more consecutive teeth
- Dentures: used to replace the upper or lower arch of missing teeth
- Dental implants: a prosthetic tooth implanted into the jaw bone to mimic a natural tooth and provide a secure result. Implants can also be used to secure a denture or bridge.
Dr. Marra is one of few Albany area dentists offering full services for the placement of all types of dental implants. Capital Region Complete Dental Care and Implants also offers sedation dentistry options including IV sedation. Dr. Marra has extensive training in implant dentistry and is a Fellow in the International Congress of Oral Implantology (ICOI). We use advanced technology for more accurate treatment planning, comfortable procedures and natural looking results that will last a lifetime with proper dental care.
