Family doctors, including dentists, are crucial to helping patients of all ages in maintaining their health. A family dentist such as Dr. A is committed to helping patients in the Northeast Philadelphia area in achieving and maintaining their best oral health. Preventive care is the best way to keep problems within the smile from occurring. It is at the forefront of everything done at our practice.
We also provide restorative dentistry. This includes dental treatments that are used to repair the smile when problems have occurred. It may include root canal therapy, periodontal disease treatment, the placement of restorations, or replacement of missing teeth. Patients who are missing one or more teeth from their smile may benefit from the placement of dental implants for repair.
What are dental implants?
Dental implants are titanium rods that the dentist places into the bone of the jaw and restores in a number of different ways. They can replace one or more teeth within the dental arch. Restoration of dental implants may include crowns, bridges, or dentures.
What is done during dental implant procedures?
Patients must first be proper candidates for dental implants. To determine this, Dr. A will perform several diagnostic services including x-rays to assess the structure of the jaw bone. For successful placement, bone should be sufficient. Placement occurs during oral surgery, and patients will allow the smile to heal during the process of osseointegration.
