For a tooth replacement option that never needs to be replaced, Bensalem Family Dentistry trusts dental implants. We are able to install them in patients with missing teeth right here in our Bensalem, PA dental practice.
Dental implants are able to last a lifetime with good care. The great thing is they do not need to be treated any differently than a normal tooth to keep them healthy. You just need to brush them two to three times per day and floss once per day. You will also want to make sure you are coming into our office for your routine cleanings and examinations.
The installation of a dental implant is a surgical procedure. First, an incision will be made so the titanium implant post can be inserted into the bone socket. A hole is drilled into the bone and the implant post is inserted. The gums are then sealed and allowed to heal for several months. When the healing process is complete, the gums are opened back up and an abutment is attached to the dental implant. The abutment will serve as the base for the permanent crown that will be attached. After the permanent crown is cemented into place, the process is complete.
If you are looking for the tooth replacement option most similar to your real tooth, a dental implant is your solution.
