Conservative Treatment for Edentulous Patients: Conquering Total Tooth Loss
An estimated 40 million men and women in the U.S. are edentulous, a term that simply means that they are missing all of their teeth. Many of these patients are unable to seek the treatment they need to live full, engaging, and healthy lives because of financial reasons or because they are too debilitated to receive oral care. Many of the treatments offered and recommended by the dental industry are simply too expensive to even consider, leaving millions feeling hopeless when it comes to the issue of replacing their missing teeth.
At LANAP & Implant Center of Pennsylvania in Williamsport, PA and Collegeville, PA, Dr. David DiGiallorenzo offers a comprehensive selection of conservative treatments for tooth replacement, each of which is customized to suit your individual needs.
Tooth Replacement Options for Edentulous Patients
Total tooth loss invariably leads to related complications, including deterioration of the jaw bone and changes in the way the gum ridges are shaped. This can cause considerable discomfort and even chronic pain in patients whose dentures no longer fit properly. The atrophy of the edentulous ridges presents an issue that is common among patients with missing teeth, and bone tissue deterioration can make it virtually impossible to find comfort with traditional dentures. This is when it becomes necessary to employ a completely patient-centric approach, taking the individual’s unique needs and preferences into consideration when formulating a treatment plan. Dr. DiGiallorenzo will always take the time to discuss your concerns and answer your questions as he develops a treatment plan that is customized with your needs in mind.
The Most Effective Tooth Loss Solution for You
Because Dr. DiGiallorenzo understands that no two patients are alike, he meticulously modifies each of his treatments individually. Depending on your needs and the status of your oral health, we may recommend one of the following solutions or a combination that fulfills your needs:
- Traditional dental implants
- Metal-free dental implants
- Immediate tooth replacement
- Implant-supported dentures
- Bone grafting as needed
- Liquid-supported dentures
