Dental Implant in Allentown, PA. | A Comfortable and more Permanent Alternative
Missing teeth can gradually deteriorate your smile. To replace a missing tooth, a dental implant is, simultaneously, the most stable and aesthetically pleasing tooth replacement option available in dentistry. A dental implant’s “root” is fabricated from titanium, which is a miniature screw that will be surgically placed into your jawbone. As your gum and bone tissues slowly regrow around it, after the oral surgery, the implant is held more and more firmly in place, until the surgical site has healed completely. Upon healing of the surgical site, a highly realistic artificial tooth is affixed on top of the implant.
Dental implants are ideal for restoring your lost teeth, but only if you have healthy gums and sufficient amounts of bone tissue to support an implant. You will thus be thoroughly examined to ensure that you are physically able to support an implant. Because dental implants are directly placed into the bone, where your natural tooth’s root once was, the tooth implant acts and functions just like a natural tooth would.Dr. McKenna and his dental team, located in Allentown, PA will thoroughly examine your oral health to ensure you’re a good candidate for dental implants, to absolutely ensure a positive prognosis.
