Dental implants in Philadelphia help you stop hiding your smile

Restore your Smile, David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry

Tooth loss among adults is not an isolated event. In fact, nearly 180 million Americans are missing at least one permanent tooth. It’s important to replace missing teeth as quickly as possible to restore the smile and prevent bone loss in the jaw. Whether your tooth loss is due to injury, gum disease, or tooth decay, dental implants can give you back your smile. While you may feel alone with tooth loss, you don’t have to anymore. At David Spilkia Family & Cosmetic dentistry in Philadelphia, PA, we offer single, multiple, and full arch dental implants that will look and function like natural teeth. The following is our guide to dental implants.

What to expect from dental implants

Dental implants are the gold standard in tooth replacement options. The implant post is placed into the jawbone, acting as a replacement tooth root, which stimulates bone regeneration. Once in place, dental implants will look and function like natural teeth. After the post or posts are in place, the restoration is finished with dental crowns or dentures that attach to the implant for both function and appearance.

How dental implants are placed

Repalce Tooth Root David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic Dentistry

The first step in the dental implants process is a consultation. During this appointment, we can assess your needs and determine if you are a candidate for dental implants. Good candidates for dental implants will have good oral health and sufficient bone structure.

During the procedure, a small post is placed into the jawbone to replace the missing tooth root. The area is then left to heal, a process known as osseointegration. During osseointegration, the bone will fuse around the implant to create the stability needed for daily function. This process often takes several months, a temporary restoration can be used during this time for function and appearance.

Once osseointegration is complete, an abutment (connector) is attached to the implant. The last step is to attach a custom fabricated dental crown or denture, depending on how many teeth are missing.

Caring for dental implants is just like caring for your natural teeth. Make sure to brush and floss daily for ongoing oral health.

Benefits of dental implants:

  • Natural appearance
  • Long lasting results
  • Preserves the integrity of the jawbone
  • Able to eat and enjoy regular foods
  • Improved speech
  • Improved self-esteem and confidence
  • Prevents remaining teeth from shifting

Why you should consider implant supported dentures over traditional dentures

Natural Apperance David Spilkia Family and Cosmetic DentistryWhile the look and feel of traditional dentures has improved a great deal in recent years, there are still some disadvantages to them. Traditional dentures rely on suction or dental adhesive to be kept in place. Because of this, individuals with dentures may experience the appliance rubbing on the gums or slipping out of place. In fact, many traditional denture wearers report they are not completely confident in the stability of their appliance and worry about it moving out of place while eating, talking, or smiling. Traditional denture can also put limitations on the food individuals can eat. Another problem with traditional dentures is that the fit will change over time. As the jawbone deteriorates, the size and shape of the mouth will change, making it necessary to have adjustments made to the dentures, and in some cases, getting a whole new set made.

Because implant supported dentures are connected to the implant that is firmly rooted in the jawbone, there is no fear of the teeth moving out of place. Implants look and feel just like natural teeth, which allows individuals to laugh, smile, speak, and eat with complete confidence.

Taking the first step toward a brand-new smile

    It's my first time giving a star rating to a dentist but I did like this one. I've been searching for a dentist and found the cleaning to be painful and some locations as they tend to just rip your gums apart. I'd recommend this office because the ladies here treat you like a family member and the place is immaculate (however one spells immaculalte - english isn't my major). anyway, I travel 4-hours from Maryland to Philadelphia just to see this dentist because he's just that good. I'm not kidding. If there were ten stars, then he'd get all ten...anyway before I ramble on and on, I've got to drive back to Maryland so just drop by and the ladies here will help. p.s. they are not hard on the eyes either.

    Thank you Dr. Spilkia for your caring professional services.In my last visit I spent almost 3 hours as you preformed a root canal and made my new crown. I would never have believed a person could actually nap through a root canal!

    I may be a little biased since Dr Spilkia is a close friend of mine; however he is the best dentist here in Philadelphia, PA I've ever had. I grew up with a phobia of dentists, but when he became a dentist many years ago, my fears quickly subsided thanks to his chair side manner. He has you feeling comfortable from the minute you step in. He is the only dentist I know of who actually phones you the day following major dental work to see how you're doing. Aside from being a great dentist, he really cares.
