Teeth Replacement Options in Willow Grove
Dental implants represent the most advanced system for the replacement of missing teeth. While conventional fixed bridges and dentures are still a viable treatment option and choice for replacing missing teeth, dental implants are the best dentistry has to offer when it comes to replicating the feel, look, and function of a natural tooth.
Implants can also be used for fixed (not removable) bridges as well as help keep special dentures in place for patients who have lost most, if not all of their natural teeth. An implant supported denture allows denture wearers to once again eat their favorite foods and function without worrying that their denture is going to be dislodged at an inopportune moment.
Implants (highly specialized titanium screws) are placed by an oral surgeon or periodontist after an evaluation confirms that the bone is stable enough to support the future implant. After the implant is placed, the area heals for 6-12 weeks. Once healing is confirmed our office will take a special impression that allows the lab to build the perfect replacement tooth. The tooth (abutment + crown) is then screwed or cemented to the implant providing a long term natural looking replacement that you can brush, floss, and use just like your natural teeth.
