What are Dental Implants?

Dental implants replace your tooth’s root, which allows our dentist to put a removable or permanent replacement tooth on top that matches your natural teeth.

This procedure has many benefits. Dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, meaning that the implants are comfortable and convenient. They also keep the rest of your mouth healthy and can help with your self-esteem.

To put in dental implants, we’ll first discuss an individual treatment plan to help you understand exactly what happens. Then, we’ll put a small titanium post into the missing tooth’s bone socket. Before continuing, we wait for the jawbone to grow around the post. This often takes between six and twelve weeks. Next, we’ll attach a natural-looking crown onto the post. You’ll feel like you have your tooth back.

Implant Dentistry performed in Moon Township, PAWho can get Dental Implants?

While dental implants are probably the most durable tooth-replacement option, they are not for everyone. People suffering from chronic disorders, people who smoke heavily, or people who have had radiation therapy may not be able to feasibly get implants. However, if you have healthy gums and a good amount of jawbone structure, then you’ll most likely be able to get dental implants.

Dental implants have a 98 percent success rate. We use anesthesia during the procedure, and many of our patients have reported less pain than a tooth extraction. Once you have your implant, then you can use over-the-counter medication to treat it.
