Out of all the dental injuries a person can suffer throughout their lifetime, tooth loss is often considered one of the most devastating, especially if over time, your gaps begin to outnumber your pearly white. If left untreated, missing teeth can cause a variety of serious problems, including dramatic shifting of your remaining teeth as they try to fill the gap, jawbone deterioration, and an elevated risk of gum disease. Even worse, your self-confidence can suffer considerably! Many patients prefer the ease and affordability of dentures to correct these problems, but these devices can often become loose and unreliable over time due to changes in the gum tissue, leading to potentially embarrassing situations. Thankfully, Dr. DiGiallorenzo can offer you a truly revolutionary solution at his Collegeville and Williamsport offices: implant-supported dentures. By combining the unmatched stability of dental implants with the easy, removable nature of dentures, our patients can finally enjoy a tooth replacement option that’s truly the best of both worlds!
Rebuild Your Smile and Your Self-Confidence With One Seamless Solution!
The process is simple enough – Dr. DiGiallorenzo will place a number of implants into your jaw, which will serve as “roots” that will naturally fuse with and even reinvigorate your bone tissue. Then, after an appropriate amount of healing time has passed, we’ll fit your custom-made dentures into place on top of them, providing your smile with an enhanced level of security and stability. Plus, your implant-supported dentures are still removable, which allows for easy cleaning and comfort!
Nobody is too old to receive implant-supported dentures; in fact, Dr. DiGiallorenzo regularly treats patients in their nineties! Contact either our Collegeville or Williamsport office today to schedule an appointment, or if you have any questions about our variety of tooth replacement options. Our team is well-known for providing concise, comprehensive care that puts the overall health of the patient first. We love giving patients from all over the Philadelphia area and beyond a reason to smile!
