What are dental implants?
For a patient who is missing one or more permanent teeth, Drs. Scrimalli, Ratchford, & Ahmadzadeh may recommend dental implants in Hamlin, Pennsylvania. A dental implant is a restoration that replaces both the missing tooth and its root. A dental implant is made up of a titanium post and a dental restoration.

What can dental implants do for you and your smile?
– Improve your appearance and self-esteem
– Improve your speech
– Improve your comfort
– Improve your oral health
– Provide a durable and long-lasting replacement for a lost tooth

Can anyone get dental implants?
To have dental implants placed, you should have healthy gums and enough jawbone structure to support the implant. Those who have dental implants placed must be dedicated to proper oral hygiene and regular dental checkups. There are other things to consider, like whether or not you are a smoker. Talk to our dentists to see if dental implants are a good choice for you.

How do I take care of my dental implants?
Care for your dental implants the same way that you care for your natural teeth. Brush them twice a day and floss them once a day, along with your natural teeth. Be sure to visit our office at least twice a year for your professional teeth cleaning.
