Dental implants have revolutionized dentistry by offering solid, life-like, and durable teeth replacements. Once surgically inserted in the jawbone, dental implants in Montgomeryville, Pennsylvania, provide you with a lifetime of dental function and aesthetics. This way, you can eat, smile, and talk without worrying about your teeth!
Dr. Beth Skovron of Heritage Dental uses advanced technology to ensure better treatment outcomes with dental implants. With precise planning, natural-looking restorations, and diligent ongoing care, our dental implants are the closest thing to natural teeth.
Proper planning is one of the steps to having a better outcome with dental implants. We use digital radiographs to examine your bone health. Potential implant beneficiaries should have adequate bone volume and density for a successful integration.
Besides radiographs, we use a 3D Dental CT scanner to take detailed images of the bone, teeth, nerves, sinuses, and other tissues. This technology allows us to identify an optimal position to place the implant. Usually, the ideal location shouldn’t be too shallow, deep, or close to the nearby teeth and definitely not close to a nerve.
Thanks to our 3D-guided dental implant surgery, dental implant treatments are predictable, efficient, and cause minimal trauma to the surrounding tissues.
Dental implants are designed to mimic your natural tooth structure. A dental implant consists of three components: the implant itself, the abutment, and the prosthetic tooth. The implant acts as the tooth root, while the abutment links the implant fixture to the dental prosthetic, which can be a crown, bridge, or denture.
Placing implants requires several months, with much of the time dedicated to healing and osseointegration (a biological process where the implant fuses with the jawbone).
