What Are Dental Implants?
Natural teeth are held in place by tooth roots. Traditional restorations, such as dentures, only replace the portion of the tooth that is visible above the gum line, but dental implants also replace the root of a natural tooth. A new crown, bridge, or denture can then be secured by your dentist on top of the implant.
Recent advancements in the field of dentistry allow dentists to place implants with a 95% success rate. This impressive rate is higher than any other tooth-replacement therapy available in Levittown today.
The Highest Quality Materials
Dental implants are most often made of dental-grade titanium. This high-tech material is used because titanium is compatible with your natural bone. This allows bone to grow into the implant and creates an extremely strong and reliable foundation on which your dentist can create a substitute for any missing teeth.
Are Dental Implants Right for Me?
Restoration with the Most Advanced Dental Implant Systems in the Field

Why Should I Replace My Teeth?
When you lose a tooth it is important to fill the space as quickly as possible for a number of reasons:
- The teeth adjacent and opposite the lost tooth will shift into the toothless area
- Aesthetics will be compromised
- Food will get lodged in the open space causing further decline of oral health
- Bone loss can occur in the jaws, limiting treatment options in the future
- Speech can be affected
Dr. A. Paghdiwala got a Fellowship in implant dentistry in 2009 and was awarded his Mastership in implant dentistry in 2012 by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists.
What Are the Treatment Alternatives?
If you are missing one tooth or a group of teeth, you may replace the missing teeth with a fixed bridge, provided there are healthy teeth adjacent to the toothless space. A bridge is an acceptable treatment, but a bridge involves grinding down healthy teeth to replace the lost one. A bridge is also more difficult to floss and brush around. Dentures are also an alternative, but, without implants to support the dentures, they are often ill-fitting and uncomfortable. You may choose to not replace the tooth, but as noted above, that is ill-advised. Implants are really the best alternatives for replacing missing or failed teeth.
Can All Teeth Be Replaced with Implants?
While dental implants are the ideal replacement for missing or hopeless teeth, there are some limitations. The condition of the remaining bone in your jaw is the most important factor in determining if implants are right for you. Often bone can be regained by bone grafting and augmentation.
Will I Need to See a Specialist?
The majority of our implants are placed and restored in-house so you don’t have to worry about going anywhere else.
Dr. A. F. Paghdiwala has been placing and restoring dental implants for 14 years and Dr. M. A. Paghdiwala for 5 years. Dr. A. Paghdiwala got a Fellowship in implant dentistry in 2009 and was awarded his Mastership in implant dentistry in 2012 by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Both dentists are continuously taking courses in implants and keeping current on all the latest developments in the implant field.
What is the Cost?
The costs involved will vary over a broad range patient to patient. Replacing a single tooth with an implant will cost nearly the same as replacing the tooth with a bridge. Implants will turn your denture nightmare into a dream and that is priceless.
