Benefits of Dental Implants

  • Protect your jawbone from deterioration
  • Teeth put pressure on your jaw, stimulating new bone growth and helping maintain a healthy mouth.
  • Maintain the natural shape of your face
  • Teeth affect the length and overall shape of your jaw and face
  • They can be brushed and flossed along with natural teeth
  • Feel, function, and look just like your natural teeth
  • Restore your ability to eat and chew
  • Help fix any speech issues resulting from missing teeth
  • Dental implants are a cost-effective investment in your smile and overall dental health as a permanent solution to missing teeth.
  • Save yourself time and money by taking preventative action for maintaining your oral health.

 

Am I a good candidate?

If you’ve lost a tooth or teeth, dental implants serve as reliable prosthetics that look and function just like natural teeth. Unlike removable dentures and bridges, this solution is permanent.  As long as you have a healthy mouth (your gums and remaining teeth), you’re likely a candidate for implants. We will discuss your dental history and habits with you to determine if they are the best option for you.

 

Procedure 

Dental implant procedures begin with screwing a titanium post into your jawbone under local anesthesia. After three to six months, these screws fuse naturally with the bone. This creates a strong foundation for the crown or artificial tooth attached to the top of the post. The crown will sit in your gumline just as a natural tooth would.

At Abington Center for Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we use the latest technology, including 3D digital X-rays, to increase the procedure’s efficiency and reduce recovery time.

Along with traditional implants, we’re also happy to offer All-on-4® dental implants. If you need a complete set of teeth replaced, All-on-4® utilize just four titanium screws to anchor a complete set of upper or lower teeth.

 

How long do dental implants last?

If taken care of properly with good oral health, your dental implants could last you a lifetime, unlike other dental procedures that may need replacement after 5-10 years.

 

How much do dental implants cost?

The first step is to see if your dental insurance will cover all or a part of your procedure. Multiple factors are involved in determining cost. For example, the price can vary if you need a tooth extraction, various implants, a bone graft, or any post-operative care. We will discuss this with you at your consultation. Abington Center is proud to offer affordable dental implants to help restore your smile.

Stop wasting your insurance money elsewhere. I’ve grown up going from one bad, rude, painful, insensitive, cruel, dentist to another. I’ve spent years trying to achieve one thing. A beautiful smile. I’ve wasted a lifetime of out of pocket money and insurance money (that yes, only let you do procedures ONCE in your life) pain, tears, ridicule, and embarrassment, on all the wrong dentists. Then my husband found Dr. Dennis and recommended I make the switch. After I was yelled at, hurt, treated rudely, and ALOT of my insurance money wasted, I now sit in Dr. Dennis’ chair. Did he tell me everything I’ve had done in my mouth was done wrong, yes. Does it ALL need to be fixed and insurance won’t pay for it again so out of our middle-class pockets it will come, yes. If every dentist had just been as kind and talented as Dr. Dennis. Here’s your sign. Don’t be another story like me. A kind dentist who does things right the first time? In a perfect world we would have all found him at the age of 5 when our fears were high and we are a clean slate but c’est la vie and I’m here to tell you that he does exist. You just hadn’t found him yet. But now you have. My husband and I both would recommend him seven ways from Sunday. And not mention, all of his hygienists are fabulous, kind, very knowledgeable, and explain things so kindly to us in such a nonjudgmental manner. ( It’s a very important and an under-acknowledged virtue.) Lastly, his front desk ladies are just as much the bees knees as well. I love every visit I have there.

Dr Dennis and his staff are the best I had a broken tooth I was just going to have pulled. They got me in within four days from my first call. I was to be a new patient so I was impressed how quick they got me in. Once there I was given two options he could pull the tooth or clean it up and place a crown over the tooth. After getting the estimates I chose to keep the tooth. 2 days later I was in getting the crown. They make their crowns onsite so I got my tooth that day. I received a call the following day to check how the crown felt check on an discomfort I said all good it works I can eat on the side where the crown is. I have more work that is needed which I won't go anywhere else to have it done. But never have a met a dentist that impressed me like this office has. Thank you for everything you all are awesome.

I’ve had so much work done and past work by other dentists fixed by Dr. Dennis. He is completely confident in the answers he presents to me which allows me to trust him completely with my teeth. I love that he tells me like it is and let’s me decide what to do with the information he gives me! He will truly do what is absolutely best for YOU! All the dental hygienists are always wonderfully social and compassionate too! Today, especially, you made my day! Thank you for getting me in! Love and light!!

I give them a five star in overall!! Reception, hygienist, dental assistant and Dr!! I had 2 crown replace! The fact that they custom make the crown same day in office is a home run— no temporary cap!!! I also had a filling that was done about a year ago incorrectly by another Dr in NYC. ———Dr Charles Dennis showed me the before picture and it was scary!! He proceeded to clean it all out and replace the filling and it was impeccable. I truly have to say he is the best Cosmetic Dr & Family Dentistry that I have come across.
