When might patients consider a Dental Implant in Philadelphia?
In Philadelphia, patients who are dealing with the loss of natural teeth have a wide selection of treatments available for reconstructing their smile. While dental bridges and partial dentures have their place, many patients who visit David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry prefer the benefits of dental implants.
A dental implant is a titanium post that Dr. David Spilkia surgically implants into the bone of the jaw. This allows the post to act as a natural tooth root once restored with a dental crown on top. Patients who want to correct the appearance and functionality of their teeth are encouraged to consider dental implants.
Dental implants provide several benefits for patients, including:
Dental implants are commonly chosen because they are strong, long lasting, and they are easily maintained with regular dental visits to David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. Dental implants are flossed and brushed just like natural teeth to keep them free from plaque and tartar development, periodontal disease, and decay of the surrounding teeth. Patients find that they forget they even have a dental restoration in their smile! Unlike dentures, which are removable, dental implants are permanent and stay in place at all times.
Dental implants are also when patients have full cosmetic dentures. These dentures may be held in place with suction or dental adhesives. However, patients may still experience wobbly dentures and may want to consider methods of keeping them firmly in place. Dental implants can be used throughout the dental arch to allow the restoration to snap in place and derive stability from these implants. This provides patients with the confidence they need to smile more, laugh often, and enjoy their favorite foods!
