Cosmetic dentist in Havertown, PA, Dr. Neil Gottehrer, recently introduced dental implant technology at his practice to give patients relying on dentures for everyday use a better alternative to permanent, healthy smiles. Using dental implants, Dr. Gottehrer is able to give denture patients a brand new smile that is customized to their aesthetic preferences.
“We’re excited to now offer this life-changing procedure to our denture patients that will have a positive impact on many aspects of their life,” said Dr. Neil Gottehrer, dental implants dentist in Havertown, PA. “With dental implants, our patients are able to eat whatever they want, smile with confidence, and know that they have a permanent, healthy smile for life.”
Dental implants are the latest technology available for restorative dentistry. The implant itself mirrors the structure of the natural tooth, with a small titanium stud that is implanted in the jaw bone—mimicking the root of the tooth—and a porcelain crown that is attached to that root—mimicking the visible portion of the tooth above the gums. As a complete unit, the dental implant is actually stronger than a natural tooth, and better yet, isn’t susceptible to decay and cavities like a natural tooth is.
To complete the dental implants procedure, Dr. Gottehrer makes a small incision in the jaw bone to insert the small titanium stud. The incision and implant is given several months to heal, in which time the implant fuses with the bone structure. Once healed, Dr. Gottehrer attaches a porcelain crown to the implant that has been custom designed using input from the patient regarding the size, shape, and shade of tooth they prefer.
Dental implants are effective alternatives for patients who are missing a single tooth, multiple teeth, or entire top and bottom arches, as in the case of most denture wearers.
In addition to providing dental implants, Dr. Gottehrer is also a highly trained sedation dentist in Havertown, PA for those patients who have fear or anxiety of dental visits. He and his staff provide a variety of other services such as CAPTEK crowns, treatment for periodontal disease, and Zoom whitening in Havertown, PA.
Dr. Gottehrer is a leading Philadelphia cosmetic dentist and has more than 25 years of experience as a practicing professional. He completed his dental education at the University Of Maryland Dental School and afterwards completed additional training at the University of Pennsylvania in periodontics. He has been named by Dentistry Today, the nation’s leading clinical news magazine, as one of the top 100 dentists in the United States in continuing education. He has been featured in many magazines and has also been interviewed on national news broadcasts. He is known as one of the most innovative thought leaders in dentistry.
