Dental Implants in Albany NY
Nothing, not even implants, can truly replace your natural teeth. Saving your natural tooth should always be your first choice when dental care is needed and is the preferred choice over tooth extraction. Dr. Aibel or Dr. Moshman and his team can often successfully treat highly complicated cases and save teeth that would otherwise need to be extracted.
In general, the success rate for a root canal treated tooth is higher than the success rate for a dental implant.
Although there are several dental specialties that can place implants, only an endodontist can accurately determine the prognosis and success rate of different endodontic options which can be used to save your tooth.
Your natural tooth is already “implanted” into your jaw. Once the disease is removed, the tooth will be healthy and function like your other teeth. Due to the higher success rate, lower cost, and non-invasive treatment, choosing a root canal over a dental implant is the logical choice.
If Drs. Aibel or Moshman determines that your tooth is not amenable to endodontic treatment or the chance of success is unfavorable, you will be referred to your dentist or oral surgeon to discuss the option of replacing the tooth with an implant or bridge. Both of these treatments are wonderful options when your tooth cannot be saved.
