Bala Cynwyd, PA Dental ImplantsA dental implant is a small titanium screw that is surgically placed in the upper or lower jawbone. The implant replaces the root of the missing tooth acting as a prosthetic root. The implant provides an anchor for your new tooth. Many patients choose dental implants over other procedures because the result is permanent and gives you a natural appearance.

Implants can help preserve facial structure, preventing the bone structure from deterioration.Dental implants help preserve facial contours by stimulating natural bone growth. Jawline recession commonly occurs when teeth are lost or are missing for extended periods of time.  Replacing missing teeth as soon as possible is ideal for conservative and effective treatment.

Dental implants are designed to provide a stable foundation for the replacement of missing teeth. They look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. Patients enjoy the ability to eat a normal and balanced diet and can smile with confidence, knowing that his or her teeth appear natural and beautiful. Dr. Weinstock provides single dental implants as well as All On Four dental implants for patients missing a full set of teeth.

dental implant Bala Cynwyd, PADental implants are tiny titanium anchors that are designed to act as implant tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. Once healed, the implant will be fused with the jaw bone for a lasting and stable oral foundation.

Small posts, called abutments, are then attached to the implants. These protrude through the gums, allowing a conventional crown to be attached to the implant. Dental implants provide stable anchors for artificial replacement teeth.

Dental implants are ideally placed directly into the site of the missing tooth.  Placing an implant in the extraction socket gives us the greatest potential to reclaim the natural esthetics of that tooth while ensuring the best stability of the jaw bone. The placement of an implant in the exact position of the tooth allows for predictable and natural looking results.

In most cases, the dental implant procedure involves at least two visits to ourBala Cynwyd, PA dentist office.

First, the implants are placed in your jawbone. For the first three to six months following surgery, the implants will heal beneath the surface of the gums gradually bonding with the jawbone. Dr. Weinstock will most likely fit you with a temporary bridge or denture during this time.

While your implants are healing or integrating, Dr. Weinstein will work with you to custom design and fabricate your permanent dental restoration. The final restoration is made from the most modern dental materials for natural and durable results. Ceramic restorations provide natural aesthetics that will blend seamlessly with your natural smile.  The entire procedure usually takes six to eight months. Most patients do not experience any disruption in their daily life.

 

Implants are designed to be a permanent dental restoration. Of patients who were missing all of their teeth, long-term studies (more than 30 years) show an 80 to 90 percent success rate. For patients missing one or several teeth, six-year studies show a success rate of greater than 90 percent, which compares favorably with other areas of the body that receive implant replacement (such as hips or knees).

Dental implants provide patients with a whole range of long-term health benefits. Patients with dental implants enjoy restored function to the bite, improved speech, and chewing ability. Dental implants also help prevent damage to surrounding teeth, additional tooth loss, and bone recession. When left untreated, missing teeth can cause the jaw to lose structural stability and may begin to recede leaving the patient to appear older than they are.
