Many adults suffer from tooth loss. While dentures are a common way to treat this condition, dental implants have become the gold standard in tooth replacement for many reasons. Dr. Lesinksi specializes in treating patients with missing teeth in Amherst, NY.

Functional Benefits
Dentures are adequate up to a certain point, but they cannot perform as well as your natural teeth. Eventually they begin to slip and fall out of place. Not only can this be embarrassing, but it can also become difficult to speak or eat.

Dental implants function the same as your original teeth. They allow you to:
Improve your ability to speak without the fear of losing your dentures
Eat foods that require chewing 
Clean them like normal teeth with regular flossing and brushing
Last your lifetime without wearing out

Implants are the next best thing to your original teeth, and they can be designed to look just like your real teeth. Dr. Lesinki is able to match up your new ceramic implants to fit with your remaining teeth and create a natural appearance.
 
Long Term Health Benefits
Good teeth impact your overall heath. The ability to chew solid foods keeps you healthy throughout your life. When you have lost teeth, your remaining teeth push against the gap and become crooked. Misaligned teeth are harder to clean and lead to an increased risk of additional decay.

Without the root of your teeth, your jaw bone will begin to deteriorate. This deterioration damages the function of your jaw and leaves you susceptible to other oral hygiene problems. When your jaw has deteriorated too far, your dentures will no longer fit without adhesives. Implants are sunk down into the jaw and stimulate bone growth to eliminate this concern.

Some people fear the surgery required for dental implants, but most patients report that the discomfort is minimal. Although pain killers are prescribed, many are able to simply make due with aspirin.
