Implant Restoration

Implant Restorations in Plains, PA.

For patients who wish to recover their healthy smiles after tooth loss, dental implants have become the most reliable solution in dentistry. Unlike traditional restorations, implants replace both teeth and roots, which allows patients’ jaws to remain fully stimulated when chewing. At River Street Dentistry, Dr. Renee Edwards and Dr. Casey Silvi, will restore dental implants for patients in need of renewed function and confidence.

Restoring Beauty and Function

Traditional tooth restorations do not provide a comprehensive solution, and they have several other drawbacks. Bridges use metal clasps that can erode healthy teeth. Dentures require messy adhesives and are prone to slippage.

Dental implants have the advantage of replacing both the tooth and the root. This structure makes them aesthetically pleasing and gives them added health benefits. Our River Street dentist are excellent clinicians in the placement of dental implants. A titanium post is put into the jaw bone. The post fully fuses into the bone through osseointegration. This process takes approximately four months, and a sturdy, durable anchor for a prosthetic tooth results. An abutment attaches a crown to the post. The result is a fully functioning and natural appearing tooth.

The Art of Restoration 

During consultations our dentist will take an in-depth look at your oral anatomy, making sure that both your jawbone and gum tissue are healthy enough to receive implants. Once you are declared a viable candidate, we then create a treatment plan that caters to your needs and aesthetic goals. Our team collaborates with a trusted periodontist for the placement of your implants, which generally take three to six months to heal.

Once your implants have fully integrated into your jawbone, dentist will invite you back to place the final restorations. We offer a variety of materials, including porcelain and in-office CEREC. Our porcelain restorations are crafted at a local lab, using your detailed impressions to ensure the quality and comfort of your prosthetic.

The materials we offer are designed to blend in seamlessly with the rest of your smile, whether you need a single crown or a full denture. Porcelain is ideal for teeth replacement because of its resemblance to natural enamel and is highly stain-resistant. Our porcelain prosthetics, as well as our same-day CEREC crowns, are designed to match the natural shade of your surrounding teeth. Our dentist often suggests teeth whitening in conjunction with teeth replacement to further improve your appearance.
