Dr. Sara Bekyan, DDS of Westtown Dental Care Restores West Center, PA Smiles with Dental Implants
Making the decision to replace a missing or damaged tooth is very sensible. For many patients the insecurity of a visible tooth gap can be real detriment to one’s self esteem. When it comes to maintaining periodontal health, a missing tooth exposes the gum to numerous risks, including periodontal disease, increased likelihood of infection and decay of surrounding teeth, jaw misalignment and deterioration of the jaw bone. While crowns, bridges and dentures have long been thought of as the primary solution to a missing, extracted or severely damaged tooth, there is an even better dental prosthetic that has captured the curiosity patients in need of a smile restoration. The patients of Westtown Dental Care in West Center, PA are no exception—and Dr. Sara Bekyan, DDS knows why. Dental implants are currently the most natural looking, secure and long-lasting method of replacing a tooth. For Southeastern Pennsylvania dental patients who want to restore gapped or damaged smiles, she wants them to learn more about this exciting dental restoration solution.
Dental implants are unique in their structure and placement process. Although they are custom fabricated to look like a natural part of your smile, just as with bridges and partial dentures, they provide numerous other benefits that alternative prosthetics do not. Dental implants are rooted directly into the jawbone and do not require any modification or attachment to surrounding teeth. As a result, they provide a secure, real feel. They do not require special care or maintenance beyond consistent periodontal self-care. They prevent bone loss and seldom need replacement;
The placement of dental implants typically involves several individual procedures that enable Dr. Sara Bekyan to assess and prepare your mouth for the final implant placement. This includes the custom fabrication of a replacement tooth and the placement of the primary implant component into the jaw bone. The surgical procedure to do so is painless and efficient. Over a brief healing period, your jaw bone will naturally conform to the implant, which provides the uniquely natural feel that patients love. Once the entire healing process is complete, your permanent prosthetic crown is affixed to the implant.
While the dental implant process is simple and innovative, it may vary based on individual patient need. Dr. Sara Bekyan, DDS and her associates at Westtown Dental Care in West Center, PA invite your questions and welcome you for a dental implant consultation.
