Did you know in the United Stated 1 in 4 people over the age of 65 have lost all their teeth? It’s mostly caused by gum disease, tooth decay and sometimes injury. It’s important to take care of your teeth because each tooth plays a vital role. Your teeth help you chew your food, speak clearly and of course show off your smile! When you lose your teeth and don’t replace them it can change the whole structure of your mouth, changing your appearance for the worse. Losing more than one tooth can cause your bite to shift onto your other teeth and over time will shift your teeth into where the missing teeth were. Not only will your teeth shift, but it will also be easier for plaque to build up in those missing spots which can result in gum infections that will lead to more missing teeth. Luckily, for you Philadelphia Dentistry has teeth replacement options so you can have an all-natural looking smile that you are proud to show off.

At Philadelphia Dentistry we offer several different options such as, implants, fixed bridges, full dentures and removable partial dentures. When you come in for your free new patient consultation one of our experienced doctors will give you a free exam and let you know which option, they think is best for your specific case.

1. Dental implants. Dental implants are a very popular option at Philly Dentistry for replacing missing teeth. Implants look and feel like your own teeth because we make sure we pick the best option that matches your natural teeth. Typically, implants are best used for replacing a single tooth, but can also be used to replace several teeth. The implant is a small titanium post that goes into the bone socket of the missing tooth and then the new tooth is securely placed on the post to give you a natural look so you can smile proud again.

2. Fixed bridges. Bridges are typically used to replace several missing teeth and are supported by implants or the teeth surrounding the gap. They are made from metal that is covered in porcelain and will give you a great natural smile.

3. Full Dentures. Known as conventional dentures they are an entire set of artificial upper and lower teeth. They are held in place by suction and may feel a bit awkward at first, but once you get used to wearing them you won’t even notice anything.

4. Removable partial dentures. Partial dentures are used to replace a limited number of teeth which are attached to a plastic base supported by the gums and your remaining teeth. These partial dentures can be taken out for cleaning and are usually less expensive than implants or bridges.

At Philly Dentistry our goal is to help Philly smile more, one patient at a time. If you have missing teeth or end up losing a tooth, have no fear because we have all the options to help you get that beautiful smile back. Don’t hesitate to call us today and schedule a free new patient consultation 215-568-6222.

If you haven’t been to the dentist in some time there is a good chance you may be having some pain either from broken or damaged teeth. At Philadelphia Dentistry, we can help you get out of pain and get that smile you always wanted. Restorative dentistry gives you back that natural looking smile and heals any dental health problems you may be having in a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere.

At Philly Dentistry we offer many restorative services to our patients. One of the most popular services is dental implants. Dental implants are the perfect solution for any patient that has missing teeth, but doesn’t want the hassle of getting dentures.

Another great service we offer is dental crowns. If your teeth are cracked and you do nothing about it a much more serious problem can occur. When your tooth is cracked or chipped it exposes the tooth to harmful bacteria and plaque that will infect the tooth. A dental crown is placed over the broken tooth to restore it back to new so no farther problems will occur. This solution will save your tooth and give you a natural looking smile.

Similar, to dental implants are dental bridges which are excellent for missing teeth. How a dental bridge works is that the crowns are attached to your teeth on either side of the missing tooth area which allows them to acts as an anchor for the bridge and then topped with a prosthetic tooth.

If you are experiencing any problems with your teeth, please give us a call at 215-568-6222 and we will help you achieve your best smile!

dental implants1If you are missing teeth, one of the best options for replacing them today is with dental implants. A dental implant is a “man-made root” that is placed into the jaw bone and sits where the roots of the tooth normally would.

Yes, it may sound strange or even painful; however, the jaw bone has less nerve endings than the tooth itself and we find patients normally experience much less sensitivity than they expect.

Dental implants are a great way to replace teeth because they provide a long-term solution and can last a lifetime.

Based on your health history, you may or may not be eligible for a dental implant. The majority of patients are now able to receive dental implants, especially with advancements made in implant technology.

Below are some conditions that may impact your ability to get an implant:

dental-implants-mexicoBe sure to include all of your medical history and medications on your health history form so that the doctor can do a complete evaluation.

In some cases patients may need to first have work done such as a bone graft or sinus augmentation in the area before the implant is placed. This will be determined and your doctor will let you know the proper steps that need to be taken in order for treatment to be successful.

In order to find out if dental implants are the right solution for you, and if you are a candidate for dental implants, schedule a free consultation with Dr. Cirka and Dr. Meier. They will perform a full oral health examination and discuss your health history and options.
