Irwin, PA cosmetic dentist, Dr. Frank Aiello, is offering local patients the best option for replacing single missing teeth using the latest dental implants technology. With permanent dental implants, Dr. Aiello is able to provide patients with a prosthetic option that looks, feels, and functions just like a natural tooth.
Surveys show that at least 175 million people in the U.S. are missing at least one permanent tooth. While having a missing tooth is not only aesthetically displeasing, it can be a concern for oral health issues in the long run, too. While bridges have often been a common solution to conceal the gap of a missing tooth, the absence of a tooth root can still lead to gum and bone resorption in the area, which can lead to the loss of surrounding teeth as well. A dental implant, however, offers a solution for patients that have the next-best option to still having their permanent tooth.
“We're really happy with the results we've seen with the dental implants we've placed for patients thus far, and we know that they are just as pleased with how their new tooth looks, feels, and performs,” said Dr. Aiello. “Dental implants are some of the most advanced technology the industry has to offer right now and truly is the best restorative option for those with missing teeth who want to keep their oral health in the best state possible.”
A dental implant for a single missing tooth is completed by making a small surgical incision in the bone and inserting a small titanium screw into the jawbone that mimics the function of a natural tooth root. The titanium implant is given several weeks to heal as it naturally fuses to the bone and surrounding tissues of the jaw. Once healed, Dr. Aiello attaches an artificial crown to the implant that has been designed to match the shade and size of the natural teeth that surround it. Unlike with bridges or partial dentures, patients with dental implants have virtually no dietary restrictions and can clean their new implant just as they would a natural tooth.
Dental implants that are placed properly have been proven to last more than 20 years, and in most cases, will last the lifetime of the patient who receives them. Due to the implant being inserted directly into the bone, its structure keeps the surrounding bone and gum from resorbing due to lack of use, which also preserves the structure of the other surrounding permanent teeth as well.

He received his DDS degree from The Case Western Reserve School of Dental Medicine in Cleveland and has been practicing in PA for nearly 35 years.
