Implants Can Also Stop Bone Recession
Without tooth roots to stimulate the jawbone, the bone begins to recede shortly after a tooth has fallen out. As the bone tissue recedes, it no longer provides the necessary support to surrounding natural teeth, which leads to further tooth loss.
Dental implants are the only restorative dentistry solution designed to stop bone atrophy, keep your jaw healthy and strong, and maintain a full facial structure.

Invest in Your Health
While oral surgery can be expensive, the cost of receiving dental implants is justified by the benefits to your long-term health. Implants can stop bone recession, which in turn can prevent a host of other oral health problems, including gum disease and tooth loss. Undergoing this treatment at our Lakeville, NY, office can actually save you money on dental care over time.
Dental implant candidates should understand that both dental implants and premium restorations are usually considered elective procedures, and therefore insurance rarely contributes to their cost. Dr. Hirschfield's staff is glad to discuss financing options, such as Compassionate™ Finance, that can place implant treatment within your budget.
How Implants Work
Implants Offer Long-lasting, Superior Results
Other Negative Effects of Tooth Loss
When a tooth is lost, it leaves behind a gap in your bite. The surrounding natural teeth will eventually begin to shift, merging into this open space. This can cause your smile to become misaligned. This can not only cause excessive wear and misalignment of the jaw, but it can also detract from the appearance of your smile.
Tooth loss can take a toll on your self-esteem. It can cause your cheeks to appear hollow, drastically affecting your appearance. You may also experience difficulty enunciating, which can make you feel embarrassed.
Gaps in your smile or complete tooth loss can affect your ability to chew effectively. This may lead to substantial changes in your diet, including reduced consumption of fruits and vegetables. Over time, this can cause you to become malnourished and increase your risk of a variety of health issues.
How Implants Benefit Your Oral Health
As a holistic dentist, Dr. Hirschfield meticulously designs treatment plans to best serve your overall health. He highly recommends dental implants for qualifying patients as they have long been the gold standard for replacing missing teeth. Implants are most often made of titanium, and they offer many health benefits, such as:
- Preservation of jawbone tissue
- Restored dental function
- Protection of periodontal health
Additionally, dental implant treatment can be provided without altering the surrounding natural teeth, maintaining their natural strength and structure.
Dental implants are a durable tooth replacement solution that can benefit many aspects of your health.
During implant placement, we will create small incisions in your gums and place the devices directly into the jaw. Over the next three to six months, they will fuse with the jawbone through a process known as osseointegration. During the next visit to our dentistry practice, we can then attach your denture, crown, or bridge to your implants, restoring full form and function to your smile. Each restoration will look and function just like a natural tooth thanks to the support your dental implants provide.

Receive Dental Implants from a Technologically Advanced Practice
Dental implants are a widely available tooth replacement solution, but when it comes to achieving excellent results, your choice of doctor matters. You need a dentist with the experience and modern innovations necessary to ensure years of valuable benefits. You need a dentist like Dr. Hirschfield.
Dr. Hirschfield employs the latest technology at his Lakeville, NY, office to provide personalized dental implant care. After determining that you are a good candidate for implants, we will use cone beam scans to create detailed 3-D images of your jaw and every remaining tooth. This will allow our doctor to identify the ideal locations for your titanium implants and plan every step of your procedure with exceptional precision.

The Prettau Bridge
A Premium Implant-Supported Restoration
The Prettau Bridge is widely regarded as the best dental implant restoration available today and is only offered by a relatively small number of qualified dental professionals, including Dr. Hirschfield of Lakeville, NY. The Prettau Bridge is a custom-crafted dental implant-supported restoration made of zirconia, offering exceptional strength and aesthetics. It is placed on a series of dental implants to replace the top, bottom, or both arches. This restoration carries an exceptionally low risk of chipping and other damage, making it a worthwhile investment in your smile. Many patients who experience adverse or allergic reactions to metal have also found the metal-free Prettau Bridge to be their ideal solution.
Additionally, the Prettau Bridge is completely customizable to your tooth replacement needs and goals. It is custom-made to fit your jaw, but can also be colored specifically to complement your gums and provide the shade of white you prefer. You can expect your Prettau Bridge to look completely natural.
Prettau Bridge Benefits
In addition to its cosmetic benefits, the Prettau Bridge can restore your ability to chew, enunciate, and smile with complete confidence. Meanwhile, cleaning your bridge is simple. Just brush and floss as you normally would. Unlike other denture options, Prettau Bridge does not stain or absorb odors.
The Prettau Bridge can be a life-changing alternative for patients currently wearing traditional dentures. Without dental implants, you will suffer atrophy (shrinkage) of the jaw. This is why traditional dentures must be frequently refitted to accommodate changes in jaw shape. The implant-supported Prettau Bridge, on the other hand, halts these changes. It allows you to stop worrying about your denture, and start enjoying delicious meals, long talks with friends, and smiling for family portraits.
Candidates for the Prettau Bridge
Patients with several cracked, damaged, or missing teeth and a desire to dramatically restore their smile are likely candidates for the Prettau Bridge. However, candidates must first be able to receive dental implants. Dental implants require sufficient bone density in the jaw, so if you have waited many years to address tooth loss, you may require a bone graft to create a suitable implant base.
