I’ve been going here for years and I’ve never had a problem. He also did my anterior crown and I’m in hygiene school and many of my peers can’t even tell it’s a crown. Dr. Spilkia is a wonderful dentist and I would not go anywhere else!

Dr. Spilkia can restore dental implants in order to bring a patient's pure beauty back to the forefront of their smile.

Dental Implants Philadelphia - Before and After Dental Implants Images Dental implants are specialized restorations that are used for a few reasons. A dental implant can be a substitute for a single missing tooth, or if several teeth are missing, multiple implants can be placed to replace those teeth. Implants are made of titanium and are surgically placed into the bone underneath the gums. The titanium material is important, as it is biocompatible with the patient's body and readily accepted as its own. The implant is then restored with a dental crown or bridge, which will replace the appearance of the missing teeth. Implants are important to maintain bone structure and keep the surrounding teeth from shifting out of place after a tooth has gone missing from the patient's smile.

Dentures can snap into place with the dental implants, eliminating the need for dental adhesives such as pastes and gels that often don't suffice. Many patients have floating dentures due to the lack of an adequate ridge of gum and bone, so dental implants can be used to secure the dentures in their proper place and reduce irritation, movement, and an uncomfortable fit. You will be able to talk, laugh, and enjoy your favorite foods without difficulty, or fear of your teeth slipping.

How to Take Care of a Lost Tooth through Dental Implants

Have you lost a tooth? Dental implant can ensure that the rest of your teeth stay in place and help your mouth perform its vital functions correctly.

You’ve lost a tooth and you’re tempted to just let it go. No one will know you lost a tooth, right? Wrong. A lost tooth changes everything; your remaining teeth will slide into the empty socket, changing both the structure of your jaw and the alignment of the remaining teeth. Misaligned teeth are more difficult to clean, leading to further tooth decay and tooth loss. Even the loss of a single tooth can cause your jaw to change shape, enough so that it is visible to your friends and family. You immediately look older. Dental implants actually bond to your existing bone making an artificial root as solid and as natural looking as the rest of your teeth. Dental implant replacements allow you to once again eat the natural healthy foods that add stamina and years to your life. Call now to schedule your no obligation consultation.

Dental implants have many benefits. They do not require that patients grind down completely healthy adjacent teeth, and they can help restore and stimulate bone growth underneath the gums. This is important to eliminate that "sunken-in" appearance that many denture wearers experience. Dental implants are permanent, long-lasting restorations that can improve a patient's ability to bite, chew, and talk more than any other cosmetic restoration. They require no special care or attention, and are treated just like your natural teeth.
