Are dental implants right for me?
Many patients are suitable candidates for dental implants. However, dental implants require substantial healthy bone and gum tissue for long-term success.
With recent advancements in implant dentistry, edentulous patients are now more likely candidates for dental implants, often without bone grafting. If you have had missing teeth for some time, implants may still be an option.
Using CBCT 3D digital scanning, Dr. Gil can build a complete picture of your unique dental concerns allowing for more precise treatment options. CBCT 3D technology is used in pretreatment planning and for the digital guided placement of implants.
During your consultation, Dr. Gil will present your treatment options and explain the benefits of choosing dental implants so that you may make informed decisions about your dental care.
Dr. Gil will perform the surgical implantation phase from the comfort of our Allentown, PA, dentist office. Patients receive detailed instructions pre-op and will be made comfortable on the day of surgery.
The number of implants placed will vary depending on your personalized treatment plan. The implants heal for 3-6 months before receiving your final dental restoration. During this time your implants will fuse into place creating a secure hold. You will return to Dr. Gil to ensure your implant is healing properly during your healing period.
Final Restoration & Fit
Dr. Gil will custom design the dental restoration you need. He uses his natural eye for facial aesthetics and state-of-the-art equipment. As a result, your dental restoration will look and feel like natural teeth. The final restoration will be tested for comfort and approved by you for aesthetics prior to the final fit.
Once the restoration is secured in place, patients are able to enjoy a beautiful, natural smile.
