Dental implants are replacement tooth roots placed in the jaw to support replacement teeth. They are made from titanium and other materials. Dental implants in Oakmont, Pennsylvania, are a great option if you have gaps in your smile, wear dentures, or do not want tooth enamel removed to make a bridge. Implants have the following advantages:
- Improve the appearance of your smile
- Improve your speech
- More comfortable than removable dentures
- Can improve your self-esteem
- Improve your oral health
Our dentists will surgically place the implant into your jawbone. During the healing process, the bone in your jaw will form around the implant. This holds it in place and adds stability. Some patients need to wait several months for the healing process to be complete before having the replacement tooth attached to the implant. Others can have the implant and replacement teeth placed in one visit. Dr. Nader and Dr. Resek will construct a replacement tooth that is customized to your smile. This replacement tooth will match the color of the surrounding teeth and will fit your bite. If you think dental implants may be right for restoring your smile, we welcome you to contact Oakmont Family Dentists today to learn more about dental implants and to schedule a consultation.
