Dental Implants

Dental Implants at Linglestown Family Dental, Harrisburg, PA

Dental implants are a permanent and durable solution for replacing missing teeth.  They are titanium posts that are surgically inserted into the jawbone, acting as artificial tooth roots.  Dental implants provide a strong foundation for replacement teeth, such as crowns, bridges, or dentures, allowing them to function and look like natural teeth.

The process of getting dental implants typically involves multiple steps and requires collaboration between a dentist and an oral surgeon or periodontist.  Initially, the implant is placed into the jawbone during a surgical procedure.  Over a period of several months, the implant integrates with the surrounding bone through a process called osseointegration, ensuring stability and longevity.

Once the implant has fused with the jawbone, an abutment is attached to the implant, which serves as a connector between the implant and the replacement tooth.  The final step involves the placement of the custom-made crown, bridge, or denture onto the abutment, resulting in a natural-looking and functional replacement tooth.

Dental implants offer numerous advantages.  They provide a secure and permanent solution for missing teeth, improving oral function and speech.  Moreover, implants help maintain the integrity of the jawbone by preventing bone loss that can occur with tooth loss.  Additionally, implants do not require alteration or support from adjacent teeth, preserving their health and integrity.

Proper oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups are crucial for the long-term success of dental implants.  With proper care, dental implants can last a lifetime, making them a cost-effective and beneficial investment in oral health and quality of life.

If you are considering dental implants, schedule an appointment with Linglestown Family Dental for a consultation and evaluation.  We can evaluate your suitability for the procedure and guide you through the implant process.
