Friendly staff, good doctors. They keep the patients involved in the process. Sitting in a dentist chair can be unnerving but here you can look out and see the horse farm and lots of nature. This is a calming environment. This is a class act dental practice.Clare W.

Determining the Right Option to Restore Missing Teeth

Dentures Chambersburg PADentures are a removable option that provides you with a quick, affordable solution for missing teeth. They are often held in place with adhesives and therefore are not the most stable solution.

Dental implants are a permanent restoration that look and feel like your natural teeth. Implanted into the bone, implants offer you durability unmatched by other methods. In fact, their design helps to preserve bone health. They are easy to maintain, require no special food restrictions and can last a lifetime. For successful placement, some patients may need additional treatments, like bone grafting.

Implant-supported dentures offer many of the best features of both implants and dentures. With this option, several implants are placed strategically and topped with either a metal bar or metal studs. A prosthetic is then created to snap onto the studs or attach to the bar. This elevates the prosthesis so that it does not rest directly on your gums, provides stability, and prevents bone loss.
