Dental Implants

Illustration of dental implant | Doylestown PA DentistDental implants are a popular tooth replacement option because they are reliable, efficient, and durable. Other dental prosthetic options rest on the gum line, or anchor to adjacent teeth—but dental implants anchor to the jaw bone and will never shift or fall out. 

Doylestown, PA dental implants secure to your jawbone and hard- and soft-tissue making your investment permanent and long-lasting. Since they are durable and secured, they act and feel just like your natural teeth. Our Doylestown, PA patients can enjoy eating their favorite foods and speaking with confidence, knowing that their dental implants will always stay in place. 

What Are Dental Implants?

Dental implants are thin biocompatible titanium posts that are tooth root replacements. They allow patients to feel comfortable and secure and improve their quality of life. Because they look entirely natural, no one will ever know you have dental implants. 

After your Doylestown, PA dentist adheres the dental implant to the jaw bone, the healing process takes a few months for the implant to fuse to the bone. Once this process is complete, Doylestown, PA patients should never feel discomfort or pain, and the dental implant will blend naturally with your smile. 

Dental Implants Can Replace Multiple Teeth

Some patients may require multiple tooth replacements, but individually placed dental implants may be cost-prohibitive and daunting. All-On-Four implant-supported bridges in Doylestown, PA, are a popular way to address restoring multiple teeth. The procedure means that all your teeth are supported by four dental implants, instead of individual implants for each missing tooth.

Four to six dental implants support All-on-Four implant-supported bridges on the upper or lower arch. With proper maintenance and oral hygiene, your All-on-Four dental implants can last more than 20 years, making them a lifetime investment. 

Invigorating Bone Health in Doylestown

Dental implants in Doylestown are a popular choice because they help protect the health of your jaw bone. During tooth loss, the jaw bone can begin to recede without being anchored to a tooth root. Additionally, when there is a space between teeth, neighboring teeth start to shift towards the gap. This change in tooth alignment can eventually require orthodontic treatment over time.
