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.

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.
Dental Implant FAQs
Learn more about 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.
