Exton Dental Implants
Restore the Appearance & Function of Your Teeth
Missing teeth can cause a variety of problems. When people are missing teeth, they tend to hide their smiles and self-esteem and confidence can be damaged. In addition, the space where teeth are missing is prone to infection and allows the surrounding teeth to shift position. At Integrated Dental Care, our dentist provides dental implants in Exton to provide a lasting solution for missing teeth.
Lasting Solutions for Missing Teeth
Placing dental implants is a complex procedure that requires a dentist with the right training, tools, and expertise. At Integrated Dental Care, we are equipped with cutting edge technology and continually focused on improving our technique to provide our patients with the best experience possible. We provide dental implants with results that are beautiful and natural looking. At Integrated Dental Care, we offer multiple implant systems because we recognize that no single implant system is ideal for every patient. We therefore select implant systems that works best for each patient's specific needs and circumstances.
The dental implant process involves:
- An impression is made to create the replacement tooth
- A metal post is surgically placed under the gumline and secured to the jawbone
- The post and jawbone are allowed to heal and fuse together
- A new synthetic tooth is attached to the metal post after it has fully healed
A dental implant provides a secure replacement tooth that looks and feels like your own natural tooth. This allows you to eat normally and participate in any activity without worrying that the tooth will shift or fall out. After the initial healing, you will brush and floss your teeth like normal and visit the dentist regularly for exams and cleanings to keep your implant in good shape and maintain your overall oral health.
When a full arch of replacement teeth is needed, individual dental implants may not be the most viable or convenient method of addressing the problem. All-on-4 provides a full set of teeth with only four implants to support the full arch, either upper or lower. We provide all-on-4 dental implants in Exton in our office, so our patients can enjoy replacement teeth that look and act natural.
This procedure may be a good option for patients who:
- Require a full arch of replacement teeth
- Want permanent replacement teeth
- Don’t have enough bone density for a full set of individual implants
- Need a faster and more affordable solution for replacement teeth
You will care for your All-on-4 implants the same way that you care for your natural teeth. You can enjoy all your favorite foods without worrying about damaging the dentures or discomfort. Brush as you would your natural teeth and visit the dentist for regular exams.
Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Implants
How Do I Care For Dental Implants?
Preventative dental practices are essential in caring for your implants. In addition to brushing your teeth twice daily, it is important to floss as well. It is also a good idea to use a small interdental brush in order to care for hard to reach areas. Avoid chewing foods that could potentially damage your dental implants, such as hard candy or chips. Feel free to contact the professionals at Integrated Dental Care if you have any further questions about caring for your dental implants.

What are the Benefits of Dental Implants?
Dental implants offer numerous advantages, including improved oral health, enhanced appearance, and increased confidence. They provide sturdy support and stability for artificial teeth, enabling better chewing and speaking abilities. Unlike removable dentures, implants eliminate discomfort and slippage, promoting a natural and secure fit. They also preserve adjacent teeth, prevent bone loss, and contribute to long-term oral health and well-being.

The first step is to determine if you are a candidate for dental implants in Exton. We start with a thorough examination, including your records, any existing conditions, and other factors. Scans are taken to locate the bone sinuses and nerves and we create a computer simulation of the implants to maximize support for your replacement teeth.
A new set of teeth is fabricated for your specific needs. For All-on-4 procedures, surgery is performed to place the dental implants in your jawbone, which will be used to secure your replacement teeth. After the area has healed and the implant has fused to the jawbone, we will attach the denture. Whether you need a single implant or a full set of replacement teeth, we create a treatment plan that is customized for you.
