Are you missing one or more adult teeth? If you would like to restore the beauty and functionality of your smile, ask Dr. Dhillon and Dr. Woo about dental implants in Woodlyn, Pennsylvania. Dental implants are restorations that replace not only the visible part of the tooth, but the root.

What are the advantages of dental implants?
The many advantages of dental implants make them very popular. Unlike some restorations, dental implants will not slip or shift in the mouth. They provide the security of natural teeth and allow you to chew and speak properly. You can clean dental implants in the same way as you would your natural teeth. Dental implants prevent the nearby teeth from shifting out of place. In addition, they preserve the health of the jawbone and the contour of the face. With dental implants, no alteration of healthy tooth structure is needed.

Am I a candidate for dental implants?
A good candidate for dental implants has healthy gums and enough jawbone structure to anchor the implant in place. If you have lost jawbone structure, you may still be able to have dental implants placed, but you would need to have the bone structure replaced. An individual hoping to have dental implants placed must be committed to dental hygiene. Daily brushing and flossing are a must. In addition, regular dental appointments are imperative.
