NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 3, 2014) - Dr. Konstantine Trichas has focused his New York City dentistry practice on keeping up with the latest technological advances in the field to offer the patients of Upper East Side Dental Arts the highest level of care. Innovations such as Nobel Biocare® dental implants and iTero™ digital impressions allow Dr. Trichas to administer restorative dentistry treatments effectively while maximizing patient comfort. Though patients have many options for tooth replacement, one recent patient of Dr. Trichas opted for implant-supported bridges for a more comfortable and secure method of mouth restoration.
In a recent blog post titled "Seeking An Alternative To Loose Traditional Dentures?", Dr. Trichas discusses a recent case where a current patient was unsatisfied with her lower partial denture. According to the New York City dentist, this patient sought out an alternative form of mouth rehabilitation because "[her] partial continually slipped out of place, and she was interested in a more permanent restoration." While most tooth replacement solutions seek to optimize the ease with which a patient eats and speaks, implant-supported bridges have the added benefit of a superior fit, as the restoration is considered to last a lifetime. This patient had been experiencing issues with keeping her denture secured in her mouth and also suffered from periodontal issues, severely compromising the integrity of her existing lower teeth.
Dr. Trichas presented this patient with three treatment options: a full denture, a combination of dental implants and a removable hybrid denture, or an implant-supported bridge. This patient chose the third option based on the advantages of the treatment. "She saw the quality and value of this treatment option, and ... she knew this was the best option to improve her lifestyle," said Dr. Trichas. "Now she is proud of her smile again and has regained self-confidence in both her personal and professional lives."
Dr. Trichas strives to achieve the goals of each individual, and he believed implant-supported bridges were the best choice for this patient. Under the circumstances, he was able to provide the patient with a permanent restoration that allows her to enjoy eating and speaking with ease while rejuvenating the look of her smile.
