With dental implants in Selbyville, DE, a patient doesn’t just replace their missing teeth, they practically get their teeth back. That’s because, unlike other treatments, implants actually restore both the root and crown of a tooth, providing a natural-appearance and rock-solid stability that is indistinguishable from real teeth. Dr. Kramer has over 30 years in implant dentistry, so if you’re ready to put your tooth loss behind you for good, he’s more than ready to help.

After getting dental implants, you…
Dental implants are able to help patients with any number of missing teeth, so no matter what your situation might be, Dr. Kramer can design a treatment just for you. After he has placed your new tooth roots, they can be topped with a variety of restorations:
A single implant root is placed into the jawbone and topped with a porcelain crown. The nearby teeth won’t need to be altered at all to make room for the prosthetic, unlike with a traditional bridge. This crown will be specially shaped and colored to blend seamlessly with the rest of the smile.
Rather than replacing multiple teeth with individual implants, prosthetics like bridges and partial dentures can be anchored to the jawbone using a small number of implant roots. This helps make the new teeth much more stable and last incredibly longer compared to removable ones.
An entire row of teeth can be brought back using just four to six well-placed implant roots. These will attach to a full denture that is smaller, more comfortable, and allows for a stronger bite versus a traditional prosthetic.
At most other dental offices, the procedures to have dental implant roots placed and then topped with restorations are carried out by different dentists at different dental offices, but with Dr. Kramer, most times everything is done right here in our dental office. This one-stop approach not only saves patients a tremendous amount of time, but stress as well, as they are able to work with the same doctor and team that they trust throughout the entire implant process.
Every dental implant treatment we provide is unique based on what a particular patient needs, so the price is always different from person to person. But, despite this variance, they are always a wise investment. They may cost more upfront compared to traditional bridges and dentures, but they also last several times longer. The cost of replacing/updating a bridge or denture every five to seven years (which is normal) usually adds up to WAY more than just getting dental implants in the end.
