Dentures and Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth

Talk with Goeringer Family Dentistry About Getting Dentures

Losing all of your teeth can cause a variety of problems. Not only does it make eating and speaking difficult, but your facial structure can also change. If for any reason you need your teeth extracted, or you lose teeth due to decay or infection, Goeringer Family Dentistry can help. We offer dentures for those who have lost all of their teeth. Dentures are removable sets of teeth that provide a natural appearance and help the jaw and face retain structure.

Dentures also need regular care once they are fit and used daily. Food and bacteria can still get stuck in your dentures, so for good oral health be sure to keep up with regular brushing and rinsing. If you are interested in dentures, call Goeringer Family Dentistry in Dallas, PA, at (570) 675-3646 to speak with our staff about your options.

Consider Dental Implants to Replace Missing Teeth

When removable dentures sound like a chore, dental implants may pique your interest. Dental implants bond with the jawbone, making them a permanent base to hold a crown. The crown mimics a real tooth, making dental implants a natural alternative when your teeth need extraction. Dental implants are more comfortable than dentures, as they become part of your mouth. This way, there is no need to worry about them becoming ill fitting or creating mouth sores like dentures can. Dental implants are also durable, making eating, speaking, and other daily tasks much easier. To learn more about dental implants in the Scranton, PA, area, contact Goeringer Family Dentistry. If you are not a candidate for implants, we can discuss dentures or other restorations.

After Care for Dental Implants

Dental implants need care just like dentures or other restorations. Regular brushing, flossing, rinsing, and other dental hygiene is still necessary to keep bacteria away from damaging the implants, and to protect your gums and overall oral health. Goeringer Family Dentistry will explain the necessary after care once we install your dental implants. Our knowledgeable dentist and staff are ready to help you transform your smile and help you make the choice of restorative dentistry or other forms of cosmetic dentistry. We proudly serve Scranton, PA; Dallas, PA; Shavertown, PA; and the surrounding areas.
