Missing teeth can lead to several unpleasant dental problems—from misalignment of the jaw to complications in eating, speaking, and more. If you’re currently dealing with issues as a result of missing teeth or have been advised to seek a solution to avoid potential future complications, Chester County Family Dentistry is here to help. As the location for quality dental implants Exton and surrounding area families trust, we specialize in providing you with the best option for your individual needs.
To prevent problems associated with missing teeth, an orthodontist will most likely suggest dental implants. Dental implants are safe, effective, replacements for the tooth root. These often titanium-made implants are fused to the jawbone in order to ultimately help support existing teeth. This type of dental implant is referred to as an endosteal implant.
In some cases, patients unable to utilize conventional dentures will require “subperiosteal implants.” Thes less common dental implants are placed under the gum for patients who may have a more shallow jawbone.
No matter what type of dental implant Dr. Dave Montgomery or Dr. Ryan Dunn recommend, you can be confident knowing that your replacement option will look and feel as close to your natural teeth as possible.
How Does the Dental Implant Process Work?
Depending on your specific needs, Dr. Montgomery and Dr. Ryan will either create a custom-made single tooth, referred to as a crown, or a bridge if teeth are missing. Sometimes it can take awhile for replacements to be made in which case you may be given a temporary crown or bridge.
The healing time for dental implants varies. It’s normal to experience some discomfort in the beginning stages of recovery. Your orthodontist may prescribe pain medication or suggest an OTC pain reliever if necessary. It’s important to be patient as you be accustomed to eating and speaking with your new dental implants.
