Dental Implants

Dental implants are a great way to replace missing teeth and also provide a fixed solution to having removable partial or complete dentures.  Implants provide excellent support and stability for these dental appliances.

Dental implants can be thought of as "artificial roots."  They are usually made out of titanium, and are surgically placed into the upper or lower jaw bone by an experienced Oral Surgeon or Periodontist.  The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and can enhance or restore a patient’s smile!

Dental implants are very strong, stable, and durable and will last many years. We often recommend getting a nite appliance to wear nitely in order to protect your implant restored crowns.

Reasons for dental implants:

  • Replace one or more missing teeth without affecting adjacent teeth.
  • Resolve joint pain or bite problems caused by teeth shifting into missing tooth space.
  • Restore a patient’s confident smile.
  • Restore chewing, speech, and digestion.
  • Restore or enhance facial tissues.
  • Support a bridge or denture, making them more secure and comfortable.

What does getting dental implants involve?

The process of getting implants requires a number of visits over several months.

Seeing the Oral Surgeon or Periodontist (the "specialists")

At our office, we refer patients to a few of the most trusted and well experienced Oral Surgeons or Periodontists.  These "specialists" have extensive training in the placement of implants.

X-rays are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. A Panorex and/or CT scan are often taken prior to placement of the implant(s).  A thorough medical history review is taken to make sure there are no contraindications to having dental implants placed.

Healing Time:

Typically, the healing time after placement of an implant is between 3-6 months.  Without any complexities or medical issues that would delay healing, most implants can fully osseointegrate in 3 months

Once the specialist has seen you for a follow up appointment and has confirmed that the implant has integrated with the bone, we will start the restorative phase of treatment.   Because several fittings/impressions may be required, it may take one to two months to complete. 

Success with Implants:

Most patients will have a great and long-lasting outcome for implant success which can enhance one's smile and boost their self-confidence. 

You will receive homecare instructions when your treatment is completed.  Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new implant.

Testimonials

I have been a patient of Dr. Jeffrey Weiner since 1981. His work is impeccable. He is meticulous and results focused. He is not happy unless you are happy. I have referred many patients over the year to his office. His staff is always accommodating and friendly. I have had to call him and his son Dr. Jason Weiner on weekends and holidays over the years for a dental emergency and they have both responded to me quickly and with concern and advice. I receive compliments every day about my smile and it is because of Weiner Dental.

Mary P., Bensalem, PA

I know from experience that patients at Weiner Dental are very fortunate in knowing that "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree." Dr. Jason Weiner is my primary dentist. He is not only adept in the painless and creative cosmetic work that he has performed on me, his easy manner and confident professionalism allays any anxiety that I may have about any dental problems. Having also been treated by Jason's father, Dr. Jeffrey Weiner, it is evident that a caring attitude and a healing aptitude has been passed on from father to son. That same demeanor seems to be instilled in everyone at Weiner Dental. I sincerely recommend the doctors and staff at Weiner Dental. I believe that they really care.

Edward M., Huntingdon Valley, PA

I have been going to Doctor Weiner for 30 years along with my wife and children. He has always given us the best of care. I do not know t oo many doctors who care so much that they call you at home to check on you. He cares about all people. When Dr. Weiner heard we were going to visit our daughter (who is a missionary in Jaraboca, in the Dominican Republic), he sent dental supplies for the folks down there. Most of them do not have the money for toothbrushes and toothpaste. If you could have seen the look of joy on their faces...it's hard to describe. And his son Jason is following in his father's footsteps. I not only feel like I have a great dentist but a good friend! Thanks Docs.
