Dental Implants

Missing teeth can make life difficult in many ways by compromising your health, appearance, and confidence.

Dental implants replace tooth roots to support restorations, protect your oral health, and make your smile whole again.

Improve Your Oral Health & Quality of Life

Built to Last a Lifetime

Traditional dental restorations, such as dentures, will need to be replaced periodically. In contrast, dental implants can last over 40 years with proper care. Although your implant-supported restoration will need to be replaced from time to time, this will occur with less frequency than with traditional dentures.

Jawbone Retention

Tooth loss leads to atrophy of the jawbone. Not only does this cause oral health issues, but it gives the appearance of an aged and sunken face. Currently, the only treatment available in dentistry that can stop bone atrophy after tooth loss is dental implants.

Restore Confidence and Function

Traditional dentures slip, so users often experience clicking and smacking. Dentures also require messy adhesives and need to be periodically repositioned. Implants not only give patients a smile they can be proud of, but they allow the toughest foods to be chewed with ease. Like with natural teeth, patients with dental implants can eat an apple while having a worry-free conversation.

How Dental Implants Are Placed ... 

Implants allow you to replace missing teeth from root to crown.

Many people like you are suffering from compromised smiles...

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 replace the root of a natural tooth. A new crown, bridge, or denture can then be secured to the top of the implant using a connector piece called an abutment.

Recent advancements in the field of dentistry allow dentists to place implants with a 95 percent success rate. This impressive rate is higher than any other tooth-replacement therapy available in Levittown or Newtown today.

The Highest Quality Materials

At our office in Levittown PA, we use dental implants made of dental-grade titanium. This high-tech material is used because titanium is compatible with your natural bone. This allows bone tissue to fuse with the implant, creating an extremely strong and reliable foundation on which our dentists can create a substitute for any missing teeth. After the titanium has fused with the bone (a process known as osseointegration), an abutment is attached to the implant. Your restoration will be attached to the abutment.

A 5-Star Review For Implants

"I have had extensive dental work and my bite was never aligned correctly until I decided to have implants to replace teeth that required removal. I am very please with the work and my implants have been correctly aligned with my natural bite. I highly recommend Pearl Dental, their first priority is to retain your natural teeth as much as possible." Stephanie B

Dental Implant Treatment Timeline

While each patient's case is unique, dental implant treatment always follows similar general steps. Your timeline can vary slightly if you need preparatory procedures to overcome issues with gum disease or poor bone density
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.

First Consultation

Our dentist will perform a thorough examination of your health history and the condition of your mouth to verify your candidacy for implants and determine if you need any procedures before the implant is placed.

Implant Surgery

One of our doctors will make small incisions in your gums at the implant sites. Then, he will surgically place the implants through the incisions and into the jawbone. We use state-of-the-art surgical guides for faster surgery, less discomfort, and quicker healing. 

First Healing Period

During the next four to six months, the implants will fuse with the bone. Temporary restorations may be attached to your implant during the healing period.

Abutment Placement

After the implant has fused with your jawbone, you will return to either our Newtown or Levittown offices so we can attach connector pieces called abutments to your implants.

Second Healing Period

It typically takes only a few weeks for the gums to heal around the abutments.

Restoration Placement

Once you have healed, you will return to our dentistry practice to have your permanent crown, bridge, or denture attached.

Start Smiling

Finally, you will leave our practice with a functional, beautiful smile on your face.

Dental Implants Candidacy Factors

Bone Health

Your jaw must have enough healthy bone tissue to support the implants. Jaw atrophy follows tooth loss, so if you have waited too long, you may need a bone graft before implants can be placed in your jaw.

Health Issues

Habits such as smoking and health conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes can compromise your ability to heal after surgery. Conditions like these must be managed before implant surgery.

Periodontal Disease

If you have gum disease, it will need to be treated before you can undergo dental implant treatment. In addition, you should practice good oral hygiene habits after your surgery to avoid implant failure.

...Before seeing the staff at Pearl Dental and after consulting several local dentists, I was resigned to having poorly fitting dentures as the cost of implants could never be reasonably estimated.  Dr. Paghdiwala was the ONLY dentist who was able to discuss and estimate the costs, making implants that were affordable.  Further, the procedure was completely pain free and Dr. Paghdiwala is such a perfectionist that he designed implants which work better for me than my natural teeth.  In short, I can now eat foods that I have been unable to eat for many years.  I have recommended Dr. Paghdiwala to others and will continue to do so - he is simply the BEST.

How Much Do Dental Implants Cost?

Because every smile is different, the cost of dental implants varies widely from case to case. The primary variables are the number of implants you require and the type of restoration they will support.

During your consultation at our Levittown, PA, office, our dentists will assess your case and provide a final cost estimate.

We Make Dentistry Affordable on Every Budget

Because they are one of the most advanced dental treatments available, implants cost more than alternative solutions. However, our Levittown and Newtown doctors want every patient to be able to enjoy the benefits of these innovative solutions. To make this possible, we offer several financing options, including: 

Insurance

We accept most dental insurance plans. Today, most insurance plans will at least contribute to the cost of your restoration.

Credit Cards

We accept all major credit cards and encourage you to use a credit card that offers points for every dollar spent.

Flexible Spending Accounts

If your employer offers flexible spending accounts, or FSAs, you can use your benefits here at our offices.

Third-Party Lenders 

We gladly accept financing through CareCredit®, a third-party lender that offers low-interest, flexible repayment options.

Pearl Dental Arts Membership

If you don't have dental insurance, our in-office membership plan gives you access to discounts on all treatments at a low monthly rate.

Dental Implant Saved Nearby Teeth

"I am glad I went to Pearl Dental Arts for a second opinion. Dr. P. disagreed with placing a bridge in my mouth because I am so young (I was 28 at the time). He explained that all dental work will last about 10-15 years (like my crown did), and that he wanted to take a much less invasive approach to my mouth. He started by pulling the tooth, and implanting bone material that would be assimilated by my jaw in order to build up the damaged tooth site. He then implanted a new tooth, and I love it. I am so glad that he didn't have to damage any of my other teeth!" Thomas O'Reilly

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, including:

  • The teeth adjacent and opposite the lost tooth will shift into the toothless area
  • Aesthetics will be compromised
  • Speech can be affected
  • 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
