We offer dental implants in Langhorne, Pennsylvania. If you have a single missing tooth, or even need to replace an entire row of teeth or dental arch, implants can be a wise investment in your oral health. Dental implants can provide a stable life-long restoration solution for your smile and can be brushed and flossed just as you would your natural teeth. Call us to schedule your examination and consultation with our dentists.
Why Dental Implants?
Lost teeth can inhibit your ability to eat and speak effectively and can allow any remaining teeth to shift position. This will cause your teeth to strike each other incorrectly and can create dental damage. Also, the root of the tooth exerts pressure on the jaw when you bite and chew which keeps that bone healthy and strong. Without that root, your jawbone will begin to deteriorate, or resorb. An implant does not just replace the crown or visible part of the tooth, but also the root. The overall result of a dental implant is a stronger, more attractive smile that looks and feels natural.
WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?
Dental implants have three main components:
The post is a screw made of titanium that is surgically placed in the jawbone at the site of the missing tooth. This post is used to replace the missing tooth root to ensure a stable, lasting restoration.
The abutment is the structure that connects the implanted post to the crown. The abutment is inserted into the post and is used to hold the entire restoration in place.
The restoration is the final part of the process. Depending on your needs, the restoration may be a crown, bridge, or complete or partial denture. Each restoration is made to fit your smile!
