Dental Implant Restoration in Berwyn, PA
There are many options available to replace missing teeth. The only way to preserve jaw health while achieving a truly functional bite and natural look is with prosthetics that are supported by dental implants.
Chesterbrook Dental Associates provides restorations for dental implants in Berwyn. Dr. Kurt Meyers and Dr. Jack Fitzgerald, are committed to delivering the best results and work closely with a top specialist to place your implants.
Our Implant Restoration Options
To meet the distinct needs of our patients, our dentists offer these replacement options:
- Implant-Supported Crowns - top a single implant for individual tooth replacement.
- Implant-Supported Bridges - top a minimum of two implants to replace a short row of teeth
- Permanent (Hybrid) Implant-Supported Dentures - top a minimum of four implants to replace full arches of missing teeth
- Overdentures are a removable option retained by at least two implant posts.
Dental Implant Benefits
When one or more teeth are lost, the underlying bone undergoes changes. This process leads to tooth shifting and eventually bone loss. The more teeth that are missing, the more likely your jaw will shrink, leading to a prematurely aged appearance.
Replacing missing teeth with dental implants also provides superior stability for the restoration. While a traditional bridge restores function and aesthetics, they rely on the alteration on healthy teeth for their support. Compared with conventional alternatives, implant supported dentures pose no risk of embarrassing slippage while eating, speaking, or smiling, and do not require healthy teeth to be altered.
How Dental Implants Work
Drs. Meyers and Fitzgerald assess your eligibility to receive dental implants. If you have sufficient jawbone volume to proceed, the first step is having the titanium posts placed.
If your jawbone needs strengthening, our dentists coordinate this care with our specialist to perform bone grafting before the implant is placed.
The recovery time needed for the post to integrate with the jaw is several weeks, during which time you are provided with a temporary prosthetic that will not impede healing. During this period, you are monitored closely.
Perfecting Your New Teeth
When the implants are ready to be topped with the permanent prosthetic, impressions are taken of your new dental structures and any remaining adjacent teeth, to assure a functional and comfortable fit.
Our dentists are meticulous and work diligently to produce only the best crowns, bridges, and dentures in town. Your restoration is professionally color-matched with your existing teeth or desired shade.
