David L. Crawford, DMD, Can Bring Back Your Smile

For dental implants in Indiana, PA, call David L. Crawford, DMD, if you are thinking about improving your smile. Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth. They also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures. You can smile with confidence knowing you have the support you need. 

Implants provide excellent support and stability for dental appliances. Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth that are surgically placed into the upper and/or lower jaw bone. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile. Dental implants are strong and durable and will last many years.

Call David L. Crawford, DMD, at (724) 463-3368 today for an appointment.

Reasons for Dental Implants:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting other teeth.
  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
  • Restore a patient’s smile.
  • Restore chewing and speech.
  • Support a dental bridge or denture.
  • Make dentures more secure and comfortable.

What Does Getting Dental Implants Involve?

The process of getting implants requires several visits to our Indiana, PA, office over several months. We take X-rays and impressions of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing for an implant. While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone. The implant will take up to six months to heal. 

The artificial teeth created could take several fittings, making this step take one to two months to complete. After a healing period, the artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort. 

Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits, will aid in the life of your new implant. If you have questions about dental implants or would like to schedule a consultation, please contact our office.
