Dental implants are a dental restoration that replaces missing teeth at the tooth’s socket. They fuse to the jawbone to create a stable foundation for dental crowns, dental bridges, or dentures. Dr. David J. Weinstock provides dental implants to patients with one or more missing teeth in his Bala Cynwyd, PA dental office. He collaborates with his patients to fully understand their dental history, current goals, and needs for their missing teeth.
Dental Implant Q&A
Do you have questions about dental implants? Read frequently asked questions that many patines have about dental implants and their implant treatment:
What are the benefits of dental implants?
- Look and feel just like natural teeth
- Make it easier for patients to eat
- Last patients many years
- Stabilize the bite
- Provide a strong foundation for bridges or dentures
Please contact Dr. Weinstock if you have missing teeth and want a stable restoration. He will help find the best implant-supported treatment for your needs.
How long is dental implant treatment?
Dental implant treatment typically takes 3 to 6 months. This is because the titanium implant post requires time to heal. During a process called osseointegration, the implant post fuses to the tissue of the jaw bone. The osseointegration process is important to ensure that dental implants remain stable and healthy. If patients have problems including gum disease or tooth decay, they will need treatment before receiving implants. These treatments will add time to the implant process.
Can dental implants replace multiple teeth?
Yes, implants can be used to secure dental bridges and dentures. Dental bridges replace rows of missing teeth, while dentures can restore full arches of lost teeth. When bridges and dentures are supported by dental implants, patients are able to speak easily and enjoy the foods they love without dietary restrictions. Implant-secured bridges and dentures also last longer than removable options.
