Dental Implants Broomall, PA

Do you have one or more missing permanent teeth? Is your smile or ability to eat impacted by your missing teeth?

Restore your smile with dental implants in Broomall, PA. Dental implants are durable, long-lasting restorations that replace missing teeth at the root level. A dental implant is a titanium screw that integrates into your natural bone. After a dental implant heals, it creates a stable foundation for a crown, bridge, or denture to be placed on top of the implant. We also provide dental services in Newtown Square, PA.

The Benefits of Dental Implants

  • No dietary restrictions

  • Improved aesthetics

If you have missing teeth and want a durable restoration, call Williamsburg Dental. Our dentists will work with you to find the right implants or implant-secured restoration for your missing teeth.

Dental Implants in Broomall, PA

Before treatment, we will make sure that patients are in good oral health. If needed, we will recommend bone grafting services. Bone grafting takes healthy bone tissue from another part of the mouth and places it below the gums. Patients will need enough jaw bone tissue to support their dental implants.

We will take an impression or scan of the teeth that will be used for creating dental crowns, bridges, or dentures. The impressions are sent to a dental lab, where technicians create the prosthetic according to our specifications.

During a 3 to 6-month healing process called osseointegration, the implant post fuses with the jaw bone. This process creates a stable foundation. Once the implants are healed, we will provide patients with their permanent prosthetics. We also offer dental implants in Havertown, PA.

Dental Implant FAQs

Learn more about tooth implant treatment with these common dental questions:

How long do dental implants last?

Dental implants are permanent restorations. Once the implants fuse with the jaw bone, they become a natural part of the mouth. To ensure the best results, schedule regular appointments in our office for dental cleanings and examinations. Continue to brush and floss your teeth and crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Can dental implants fail?

Implants have an over 98% success rate. However, if patients smoke or use tobacco products there is an increased risk of a failure to heal. Nicotine constricts the blood vessels. Blood flow is important to the healing process and restricting blood flow can cause implant failure.

If patients develop tooth or gum decay near their implants that have healed, the implants can loosen and fail. Oral health is an integral part of the implant process. Our team makes sure that patients are good candidates for treatment before their implant procedure.

What is the best age for dental implants?

The best age for dental implants is after the jawbone fully develops. This is usually around the age of 18-21. That age range is important because the jawbone needs to be mature enough to support the implant securely. For older adults, there’s no upper age limit. Older adults may be good candidates if they are in good health and have sufficient bone density.

Can you get dental implants with severe bone loss?

Getting dental implants with severe bone loss is challenging but not impossible. The good news is that advances in dental technology have made it possible for more people to benefit from implants. If you have significant bone loss, you may need bone grafting. This process adds bone to your jaw, creating a stable base for your implant. A dentist or oral surgeon can assess your bone condition and suggest the best action approach. 

Are dental implants noticeable or visible in the mouth?

⁤Dental labs design tooth implants to look like natural teeth. ⁤⁤As a result, they are typically not noticeable in the mouth. ⁤⁤Oral surgeons and dental labs craft the crown to match the color and shape of your surrounding teeth. ⁤⁤Additionally, since the tooth implant fuses with your jawbone, it sits in your mouth, feeling and functioning like a natural tooth. ⁤Our goal is always to create a natural-looking result. No one but you and your dentist need to know it’s a tooth implant. 

Can I get dental implants if I have gum disease?

Yes, it is possible to get dental implants if you have gum disease. However, you must get treatment for the disease and get it under control. Gum disease can weaken the gums and the bone that supports teeth. Furthermore, you may need a bone graft if the gum tissue and jawbone are not strong enough. Treating gum disease improves the chances that your tooth implants will take hold and last longer. After your gums are healthy, your dentist or oral surgeon can assess if you’re a good candidate for implants.
