Preventing Bone Loss With Dental Implants

Serving Greater Philadelphia, including Ardmore, Bryn Mawr, & Newtown Square.

Dental implants are a durable, long-lasting option for improving your smile in the Newtown Square area of Pennsylvania. They are custom crafted from strong, resilient materials which can actually help you prevent future bone loss.

Dental implants are made from titanium and are grafted onto your jawbone in a way that stabilizes it and prevents any further loss of bone. When you have any missing teeth, your mouth is in danger of experiencing resorption. This is an unavoidable process where bone can be lost when it is no longer supporting or connected to teeth. 

Risk Factors for Tooth Loss

Dental implants can successfully help you maintain a healthy jawbone. There are a number of risk factors for tooth loss. Here are several of them:

  • Neglect of your regular dental care
  • Being male and over 35
  • Smoking (can be past or current)
  • Having high blood pressure or rheumatoid arthritis
  • Having diabetes
  • Uncontrolled periodontal disease

Our Bryn Mawr cosmetic dental team can help you assess any damage and plan your dental implant placement for restoration. Our skilled, professional dentist, Dr. Bellisario, DDS will work with you to determine which type of crowns, bridgework or dentures will best attach to your implants and create your natural, healthy-looking smile.

Your natural teeth and dental implants may function the same and feel the same, but they are really very different in terms of maintenance and repair. That is why it is crucial to practice good daily oral hygiene with regular dental visits and daily brushing and flossing. Our Bryn Mawr cosmetic dentist will monitor your progress to be sure that your smile remains healthy and intact.

Whether you have more than one or a single tooth missing, or have suffered denture problems or bone loss, please contact The Office of Dr. Bellisario, DDS to schedule an appointment. Or, Call 610-642-7024 for your dental implant consultation.
