Missing Teeth & Dentures Replacement Options
When a patient is dealing with missing teeth or dentures that slip or become loose, it can create an uncomfortable situation in their mouths. Simple tasks like chewing, speaking, biting down and more become painful and uncomfortable. Your teeth are essential when it comes to performing these tasks, and quite frankly, we want you to live a life without pain or comfort in your mouth. In the case of missing teeth, harmful bacteria can grow in the open spaces and lead to disease or an infection. Loose or uncomfortable dentures can severely reduce your quality of life, not to mention your self-esteem.
It’s time to rid your mouth of the pain and discomfort of missing teeth or loose-fitting dentures. We offer traditional dental implants and mini dental implants for patients that are dealing with these issues. Both mimic the appearance of your natural teeth while providing the proper functionality and support that your mouth needs in order to remain in terrific health. Our office in Hermitage, PA welcomes all patients whom are dealing with missing teeth or loose-fitting dentures. As a Fellow of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Spadafora is an expert in full-service dental implant procedures and can help bring comfort back to your mouth.
Dental Implants in Hermitage, PA
Dental implants have traditionally been the choice of patients and dentists for patients that experience problems with missing teeth and uncomfortable dentures. Reliable oral function is tantamount to maintaining proper oral health. Not only do they mimic the look of natural teeth, but they provide excellent stability. The days of wincing because of pain while eating or speaking are over. With dental implants, you’ll be able to smile big and bright once again without the embarrassment of missing teeth. All dental-implant procedures are performed in-house by Dr. Spadafora, so you don’t have to worry about spending time locating an implant specialist elsewhere.
The procedure will involve Dr. Spadafora surgically implanting a titanium post into the jaw bone that acts as a natural tooth’s root. Once the post is inserted, a healing time of roughly two weeks is required so your jaw can “accept” the new post. When the post is firmly in place, Dr. Spadafora will place a temporary crown over the post while your new crown is precisely milled in a dental lab. Your third and final visit will see Dr. Spadafora placing your brand new crown. You will be amazed at the results and precise fit.
Mini Dental Implants in Hermitage, PA
Though traditional dental implants are the preferred choice for most patients and dentists, mini dental implants are a great replacement option for missing teeth and loose dentures, too. Unlike traditional dental implants where at least three appointments are required, mini dental implants take just one visit to apply. The procedure is minimally invasive and recovery time is slashed in half.
Mini implants are also less costly than traditional dental implants and can fit in more places than regular dental implants. It’s quickly becoming one of the more preferred dental implant options among patients due to its affordability and quicker healing times. They offer the same beautiful results as implants without the need for bone grafting or additional surgery.
