Rochester dental implantsA dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed in your mouth to support prosthetic dental crowns or dentures. This procedure offers total replacement of missing teeth. Dr. Paul Sussman often recommends dental implants for patients seeking a permanent solution that will protect the longevity of their smile.

Here are a few things you should know about dental implants prior to opting for this beneficial procedure:

  • Implants look and feel natural: The crowns used to complete dental implants are made from durable dental porcelain. They look and feel like your own teeth.
  • Implants serve as a replacement root: Most other tooth replacement options focus primarily on replacing the crown of the missing tooth. Dental implants instead focus on the parts of the tooth that cannot be seen. The jawbone fuses with the implant itself, re-establishing the missing tooth root. Ultimately, this helps prevent bone loss in your jaw.
  • Implants can help maintain healthy teeth: Not only can a dental implant help prevent bone loss in your jaw, but it can also help maintain the rest of your beautiful smile. When you lose a tooth, your other teeth are at risk of shifting, movement, decay and other diseases. With dental implants, these issues can be avoided, and you can help keep your smile healthy and sparkling.

To fully determine if dental implants are right for you, Dr. Sussman will meet with you in person to discuss your dental goals and needs. During your initial consultation, he will develop your personalized treatment plan to ensure you get the smile you want to achieve.

Rochester cosmetic dentistryRochester cosmetic dentistryCosmetic dental procedures have the ability to restore your smile as well as your self-confidence. Recently, one of our patients received a cosmetic dental treatment offered by Dr. Paul Sussman, and wanted to share her life-changing experience.

As a young girl, she always felt uneasy about her smile. Her parents couldn't afford braces. As she grew older, two of her three children received braces to straighten their teeth, so it still wasn't the right time for her—until she decided she wanted a great smile for her son's wedding.

"I called Dr. Sussman and he encouraged me to come in and talk about the possibilities," she said. "He suggested I might be a candidate for invisalign, and fortunately, I was. We talked about the concept of being ready for the July 31st wedding, but then decided that veneers would really give me the results I was looking for."

Ultimately, she received porcelain veneers to give her the dazzling smile she always wanted. At first, she was nervous about receiving this treatment. However, by further discussing her procedure with our staff, she was able to feel at ease and even excited.

"I felt so comfortable with Dr. Sussman. He assured me there would be a wonderful change, and there definitely was. I cannot tell you how confident I feel—I smile all the time! My family and friends are so happy for me," she said. "I appreciate the kindness of everyone in Dr. Sussman's office. Each staff member was a cheerleader for me, which made it a remarkably wonderful experience."

Dr. Sussman offers patients a wide variety of cosmetic dentistry solutions. To fully determine which procedure is right for you, he will meet with you in person to discuss your oral healthcare goals and needs. During your initial consultation, we will work together to design a personalized treatment plan to help deliver the smile you want to achieve.

Greece dental implantsMissing teeth pose serious dental health problems, including additional tooth loss and even deterioration of your jawbone. Fortunately, if you have missing teeth our team can provide you with a solution. We offer our patients in the Greece area dental implants to help avoid these major issues all while restoring your smile.

However, prior to opting for this treatment, many patients often ask if the results look natural. Dental implants appear like natural teeth when they are finished. But how does this treatment achieve these natural looking outcomes?

Dental implants work by replacing the entire missing tooth, including the root and crown. Even though the implant itself plays a vital role, the dental crowns are what significantly impact how your results look. Our experienced team will create customized crowns specific to your dental needs.

The crowns placed on the dental implant are made of high quality dental porcelain that mimics natural teeth in several ways, including:

  • Matched to the color, shade and shape of your natural teeth
  • Possess translucent, luster and light reflecting properties much like regular teeth
  • Are durable and stable
  • Can withstand chewing and biting forces

This is a permanent solution that blends in seamlessly with the rest of your own teeth. The results are very natural in appearance and can last for years and even a lifetime.

Our dedicated team will discuss your dental goals and needs to determine if dental implants are right for you. During your consultation, we will develop your personalized treatment plan to help you get the smile you want to achieve.

If you are in the Greece area and would like to discuss your dental implant options, give our office a call at 585-227-4390 to schedule your initial consultation.

Rochester general dentistConsistency is one of the many keys to happy healthy kids. Children crave regular routine, even when it comes to dental hygiene. Follow these useful general dentistry tips to help keep your kids' oral health in check.

Set Brushing Schedule: Children should be brushing their teeth two times a day, once in the morning and once at night. Brushing after every meal is even better. Set a schedule that works for you and your family. This can help set the foundation for better oral care in the future.

Make Better Lunch Habits: When your kids go off to school, many of them swap healthy options for ones high in sugar. Be sure to talk with your kids about maintaining a healthy diet, and how it can affect their teeth.

Schedule Regular Appointments: Regular appointments at our general dentistry office will be very beneficial for your child. Cleanings and checkups are important in keeping teeth healthy and strong. As kids grow, they may also need a variety of treatments to maintain a beautiful smile, such as orthodontics.

By keeping your kids on a consistent dental care routine, you can help them live happier, healthier lifestyles. In turn, this can help avoid significant dental and medical conditions down the road, including:

  • Gum disease
  • Tooth decay
  • Lung infections
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
