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 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.
Implants allow you to replace 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 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?

Bone Health

Your jaw must have enough healthy bone tissue to support the implants. Jaw atrophy follows tooth loss, so if you have waited for a long time before addressing a lost tooth, you may need a bone graft before you can receive implants.

Lifestyle

Habits such as smoking and health conditions such as uncontrolled diabetes can compromise your ability to heal after surgery, and must be resolved before you can receive implants.

Periodontal Disease

A healthy foundation is essential for dental implants. Gum disease must be completely resolved before you can undergo any kind of dental implant treatment plan.

Why Choose Our Office for Your Dental Implant Treatment? 

Dental implants are an area of particular interest and expertise for our doctors. Together, our dentists have nearly two decades of experience placing and restoring dental implants. Both dentists have achieved the highest levels of certification and are continuously taking courses to stay current on the latest developments in the field of implant dentistry.

Through years of research and clinical practice in implant dentistry, Dr. Abid Paghdiwala has earned a Mastership in Dental Implantology issued by the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI). He has attended hundreds of hours of continuing education and certification to be able to place dental implants as skillfully as he does today. In addition, Dr. Paghdiwala only uses high-quality titanium and the most advanced implant systems to provide reliable and safe clinical treatment.

Because our dentists have extensive dental implant training, the majority of our implants are placed and restored in-house so you don’t have to worry about inconvenient referrals.

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, NJ, or Newtown, PA, offices, our dentists will assess your case and provide a final cost estimate.

We Make Dentistry Affordable on Every Budget

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.
