Dental Implants

Ignoring missing teeth can lead to even more dental problems and the deterioration of the jawbone.

Dental implants are the only tooth replacement method that not only restores the tooth, but also maintains jaw strength.

Learn how Aesthetic Oral Arts in New Hartford, NY, uses the latest implant technology to design beautiful, long-lasting replacement teeth.

Free Implant Consultation

Are you missing a tooth but are unsure if dental implants are the right solution? We offer free consultations so you can learn about all your options for replacing missing teeth.

What Is a Dental Implant?

Dental implants are titanium posts that are inserted into the jawbone, where they act like tooth roots. Once fused with the bone, they can be combined with a connector piece called an abutment to securely hold a crown, dental bridge, or full denture.

Dental implants are the most trusted and reliable solution for missing teeth in dentistry. Dr. Timothy Pfister ensures long-lasting benefits by designing the tooth restorations out of high-quality dental materials. His meticulous attention to detail throughout the process restores the beauty and function to patients' smiles.

How Is a Dental Implant Placed?

Implants are typically made out of titanium, which is biocompatible and naturally fuses with the jawbone to ensure a secure bite. The dentists at Aesthetic Oral Arts in New Hartford, NY, have the advanced training and state-of-the-art dental technology for optimum implant results.

I've been going to Aesthetic Oral Arts for years, and have never been disappointed. Just recently, I broke a tooth and had to have a crown. With the COVID virus, I wasn't sure I'd be able to get in, but I did and they took care of it. I have always had great service from them. The staff is not only professional but very pleasant and accommodating, and Dr. Pfister is fantastic and very personable. I recommend him and them highly.

I didn't know what to expect on my first visit. I was pleasantly surprised and pleased. I'm sorry I didn't get the name of the girl who took care of me, but she was very thorough and kind. All in the office were very pleasant and kind to a new patient. I will refer Aesthetic Oral Arts in the future.

How Much Does an Implant Cost?

An implant-supported crown typically costs around $4,000 for the implant, abutment, and crown restoration. However, there are many factors that can influence the price, such as the size of the restoration or the dental materials chosen. To get a price that reflects what you would pay, we recommend requesting a free consultation.

If you are concerned about costs, we offer discounts and several types of financing plans to make your implant more affordable.

Bring Back Your Smile with Dental Implants

Do you have failing teeth or are you already missing teeth? Dental implants can restore a fully functioning smile in most situations.
 
Single missing teeth

One Tooth

If you are missing just one tooth, Dr. Pfister can recreate it using a single dental implant paired with a replica tooth called a crown. An implant-supported crown helps prevent nearby teeth from slowly slipping into the gap and encourages beneficial bone growth in the tooth socket. 

Several missing teeth

A Row of Teeth

Dr. Pfister can design a dental bridge supported by two dental implants to restore your smile and return a functioning bite when you are missing a row of teeth. Unlike traditional bridges, implant-supported bridges don't require altering nearby healthy teeth for support.

Entire missing arch of teeth

A Full Denture

Dentures supported by implants offer the security of natural teeth in a denture. Patients take care of implant-supported dentures like they would natural teeth and never have to worry about them slipping around in their mouth when they are talking or enjoying a meal with friends. 

Is Poor Bone Density Keeping You From Getting Implant Dentures?

Sufficient bone density is a requirement for dental implants. Patients who have been missing most of their teeth for a long time may discover their jaw has already lost too much bone mass to qualify for implant-supported dentures.

If you have been told you lack the bone density needed for implants, Dr. Pfister may have a solution. Even with bone loss, some patients can now qualify for implant-supported dentures using the All-on-4® method.

By strategically placing implants using this method, Dr. Pfister can rebuild smiles and restore a functional bite. The method is life-changing. Patients can walk into our New Hartford practice for implants and walk out with dentures on the same day.

Dental Implants Treatment Timeline

Dental implant candidates must have healthy gums and sufficient bone tissue in the jaw to support the implant and tooth restoration.

During a consultation, Dr. Pfister can use a cone-beam CT scan to assess the bone mass in your jaw. He will also examine your overall oral health and discuss treatment for underlying conditions that could compromise implants.

If you have oral health problems, Dr. Pfister can also go over preparatory steps, such as bone grafts and sinus lifts, that he can perform to improve your candidacy for implants.

While each implant procedure is unique, they generally follow along these lines:

Our dentists can perform every stage of dental implant treatment, ensuring you receive high-quality care from start to finish.

Patient Comfort

Before beginning the implant procedure, Dr. Pfister will numb the area so that you will feel comfortable throughout treatment. If you have a sensitive gag reflex or are anxious, Aesthetic Oral Arts offers three levels of sedation and can tailor the level of relaxation to meet your needs.

Implant Placement

Dr. Pfister will have pre-planned placement of your implants based on the 3-D images from your consultation and uses a computerized surgical navigation system to place the titanium implant. This advanced system improves precision and reduces recovery time for patients. In many cases, Dr. Pfister can attach a temporary restoration immediately after placing the implant so you won't have to go without teeth during the healing period.

Healing Period

It generally takes from three to six months for the bone to fuse with the dental implant.

Abutment Placement

If the abutment has not already been placed, it will be attached after the implant has fused with the bone. Small incisions will be made in the gums to connect the abutment. It typically takes a couple of weeks for the gums to heal and create a seal around the abutment.

Impressions

Our dentist will take a custom impression of the treatment area to design your restoration. Depending on the type of restoration you have, Dr. Pfister will either design and create it himself using our in-house CEREC milling technology or work with a trusted partner lab. Dr. Pfister uses high quality, natural-looking dental materials to create lifelike restorations that will serve you for years to come.

Restoration Placement

Dr. Pfister will test how your restoration fits and ensure the bite is comfortable. Once you are pleased with the results, the final restoration will be attached.
