Dental Implants

The #1 solution to replace missing teeth.

What Are Dental Implants?

Permanent. Stable. Aesthetic.

Missing a tooth or multiple teeth due to injury, gum disease, or tooth decay? Dental implants are an excellent restorative solution that looks, feels, and functions just like your natural teeth!

Unlike a bridge or dentures, a dental implant is surgically placed into the jawbone where it fuses with the bone, just like your natural tooth root. This makes them a long-term, highly durable investment in your smile that can last a lifetime.

Dental implants can be life-changing for many patients, allowing them to eat, speak, and smile confidently.

What You’ll Love about Dental Implants

Dental implants are an excellent restorative dentistry solution.

Natural Look & Feel
Dental implants are the closest restorative option to your natural teeth. Once in place, it is nearly impossible for anyone to tell that they are not your real teeth. You’ll be able to live your life normally, eating all your favorite foods and smiling confidently again.

Prevent Bone Loss
When you are missing teeth, the surrounding jawbone doesn’t get the stimulation it needs from chewing to maintain healthy density and quickly begins to degrade. Unlike bridges and dentures, dental implants are the only restorative solution that fully alleviates this issue by fusing with your jawbone.

Durable & Sustainable
Dental implants are made with durable, long-lasting materials such as titanium and porcelain that aren’t subject to normal tooth decay. When properly cared for, they can last decades, if not a lifetime. By preserving the integrity of your jawbone structure, dental implants are an excellent investment in the long-term overall health of your smile.

The Dental Implant Process

The simple steps to getting a beautifully restored smile with dental implants in West Chester, PA.

Despite what you might think, getting dental implants is surprisingly simple and painless.

Here are the high-level steps that apply to most procedures:

  • Dental implant placement: A small metal post is surgically inserted into your jawbone, acting as a replacement for your natural tooth root. Anesthesia or sedation may be used to keep you comfortable.
  • Healing process (osseointegration): Over a period of several weeks to a few months, your jawbone will naturally heal around the implant, fully fusing with it and creating a stable foundation.
  • Abutment placement: Once healed, a small connecter is added to your implant just above the gum line.
  • Crown attachment: Your shiny new tooth, known as the crown, is connected to the implant via the abutment.
The entire process usually takes about 6-8 months to complete, with minimal disruption to your daily life.
