Dental implants are the most effective and long lasting option to replace a missing tooth. They are the only option to replace both your missing tooth and root, which helps you maintain a comfortable bite and reduces the risk of jawbone deterioration and additional tooth loss down the road.
To find out if you are a suitable candidate, please call 610-566-0291 today to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Gregory Hillyard or Dr. Alexandra Monroe at our Media, Pennsylvania dental office.
Dental implants offer you a number of important benefits compared with alternatives such as dentures or dental bridges:
Ideal candidates for dental implants:
If you do not have enough bone structure to accommodate the dental implant, a bone graft may be performed to allow you to undergo the procedure. If you suffer from gum disease, you will need to have it treated prior to getting dental implants.
Dr. Hillyard and Dr. Monroe work closely with local oral surgeons and periodontists in order to achieve the best possible outcome for your dental implant procedure. Both dentists function as the leader of the team, communicating regularly with the oral surgeon or periodontist to let them know precisely where they want the implant placed.
When creating the dental crown that will be used as your new prosthetic tooth, Dr. Hillyard and Dr. Monroe work with a local lab in order to maintain superior communication. This improved communication with the lab ensures you will achieve the best aesthetic result. Your new prosthetic tooth will look and function exactly like your other natural teeth, and it will blend in seamlessly with your smile.
