    Teeth Implants

    If you have missing teeth they are not gone forever if you ask your Philadelphia dentist for help. There are many ways your smile can be restored, but the most effective, long-lasting option is through teeth implants. At Philly Dentistry in Center City, Dr. Cirka and his team evaluate patients to see who’s a good candidate, place dental implants, and create beautiful, complete smiles.

    Understanding Teeth Implants

    Teeth implants are made of three parts:

    1. Post: This small titanium post is surgically implanted in the jawbone beneath the gumline and serves as a replacement for the missing tooth root.
    2. Abutment: This small connector is attached to the post and serves as the place for the above-the-gumline restoration to be situated.
    3. Restoration: The restoration that’s right for a patient’s unique oral health needs – a single crown, dental bridge, or dentures – is situated on the abutment.

    Once the post is implanted, the surgical area must heal, which can take a few months. It’s critical for the implant to fuse with the jawbone so it is firmly in place and serves as a stable foundation for the restoration. The presence of the implant also stimulates the jawbone and preserves bone structure, so patients avoid one of the major side effects of missing teeth – an altered face shape.

    Types of Teeth Implants

    There are different numbers of teeth implants used in dental restoration surgery depending on how many missing teeth you have and where they are located. The most common scenarios are as follows:
