Dental implants have evolved in recent years, becoming the gold standard for tooth replacement and available for a wider range of patients due to advances in techniques. Patients with one or more missing teeth can explore their options with Dr. Weinstock, a leading Philadelphia area dentist for the placement of all types of dental implants. Dental implants can offer a new smile that looks and feels natural, allowing patients to enjoy the foods they love and speaking with confidence.
Prosthodontics & Your Dental Care
Dr. Weinstock has advanced education and training in Prosthodontics, a field of dentistry dedicated to the restoration of missing teeth. As a dentist, dental educator, and member of the Academy of Osseointegration, Dr. Weinstock stays current on the latest developments in techniques, materials, and treatment options in implant dentistry.
While many local dentists can offer implant dentistry, the knowledge and experience of your dental team can have an impact on the long-term integrity of your results. Dr. Weinstock works with patients on an individual basis to restore their smiles with dental implants, providing comprehensive and consistent care throughout the process. Our Bala Cynwyd, PA cosmetic dentistry office offers the convenience of full services for all types of dental implants under one roof, under the care of an experienced and highly trained dental team.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Although today’s patients enjoy a range of quality tooth replacement options, dental implants offer several key benefits for not only aesthetics but the support of your long-term oral and overall health. Dental implants replace both what we see above the gum line and the root below, stabilizing both the bite and the bone structure of the jaw. This plays an important role in the long-term stability of existing natural teeth or the shape of the jaw if implants are securing a denture.
Dental implants also offer:
- Permanent, secure restorations
- NO need for the use of a daily adhesive or cleaning of a denture or partial
- Ability to speak with confidence
- Ability to enjoy your favorite foods- no dietary restrictions
- Does not require reduction of healthy, adjacent teeth
- Can last a lifetime if cared for properly
- Has a high rate of success and satisfaction
- Will function similar to natural teeth
Dr. Weinstock can discuss how using dental implants will improve your dental health and quality of life as well as what to expect during the implant process. During an initial consultation, Dr. Weinstock evaluates the condition of your smile, discusses your personal goals, and provides a plan of treatment for your consideration that includes all appropriate options and associated costs.
The Implant Process
The process to have your implant secured restoration placed can take up to nine months and sometimes longer if you need significant dental work completed before having the implants surgically placed. After the implant(s) are placed, they will need time to fuse with the surrounding bone and heal.
This can take up to three to six months. Next, the abutment will be attached to the implant, and impressions will be taken and used to fabricate your dental restoration. About two to three weeks later, the final restoration will be placed.
