Bone Loss Doesn’t Mean Hope Is Lost [BLOG]


When you’ve lost teeth, it’s bad enough to have to endure the emotional pain that comes with an incomplete smile. It takes a devastating toll on your quality of life, from the strain it puts on your intimacy with the person you love, to the social and professional setbacks you can experience when you lack the confidence to be around other people.

That’s why at the LANAP & Implant Center, we do all we can to help you find the right tooth replacement option that will get you back to the life you deserve. One of the most effective and popular ways to complete your smile is with dental implants.

But for some patients, finding the solution is more complicated. Depending on your individual experience with tooth loss and how long you’ve gone with missing teeth, you might not qualify for dental implants right away. This would make anyone feel hopeless!

But that’s what sets our practice apart from so many others. Dr. DiGiallorenzo and our team of specialists here in Collegeville and Williamsport, PA have nearly 125 years of combined professional experience in dentistry. When you seek our help in finding the right tooth replacement option for you, know that you’re in some of the most capable hands in the country!

Let’s talk about why you may have been initially turned down for dental implants and how our team can help you!

Feeling Hopeless About Qualifying For Dental Implants?

First, it’s important to know why dental implants are so effective. With a nearly 98% success rate, dental implants are the closest you can get to the real thing when it comes to replacing your missing teeth.

That’s because they’re placed in your jawbone and fuse to your natural bone for unmatched strength and stability. You can have almost the same bite force as you once had when your teeth were healthy. That means no dietary restrictions and no emotional trauma from the constant worrying about your dentures shifting around at the most inopportune time.

However, going too long without teeth can lead to deterioration of your jawbone, which can leave you without enough healthy bone that it takes to adequately support dental implants.

So… is that it, then? If you’ve suffered too much bone loss, have you run out of options?

Unfortunately, some dental professionals might say yes. But with our advanced technology, our holistic approach to dental care, and our team of highly-skilled specialists, we say absolutely not!

Bone Loss Doesn’t Have To Mean Hope Is Lost!

At the LANAP & Implant Center, we perform techniques specifically designed to help you regrow the bone you’ve lost so that you can support dental implants. You don’t have to worry about being referred to other specialists and driving all over town to multiple appointments. All the expert care and technology you need is right here in our practice!

With a bone graft procedure, you not only build up the bone you’ve lost so you can support a dental implant, but you also are helping to protect your surrounding teeth and gums and overall facial structure. Every patient’s situation will differ, but usually we can get patients prepared for dental implants with either sinus bone grafting or with ridge preservation bone grafting.

Either way, we can use our state-of-the-art technology to turn your bone loss around and get you one step closer to a complete, strong, and lasting smile!

Put Your Hope In Our Expert Care!

We could go on and on about these amazing procedures in our Collegeville and Williamsport dental offices and how they’ve allowed us to change patients’ lives for the better. But we’d rather do that in person when you visit us. That way we can look more specifically at your situation and determine the best course of action toward your healthiest smile.

With the experience and skill you’ll find at the LANAP & Implant Center, our team is one who can offer hope to patients who thought all hope was lost after their experience with tooth loss.
