Restorative Dentistry and Prosthodontics - Exton Dental Health Group and The Pennsylvania Center For Cosmetic Dentistry

At Exton Dental Health Group and The Pennsylvania Center For Cosmetic Dentistry, restorative dentistry entails finding the most effective and innovative solution to repairing and restoring the appearance of cracked, broken, worn down, and otherwise damaged teeth. Although the focus of restorative dentistry may not be strictly cosmetic, the aesthetic sensibilities for which Dr. Jonathan Scharf is known throughout the country and the world influence every procedure offered by Exton Dental Health Group and The Pennsylvania Center For Cosmetic Dentistry. This means that our patients can expect to achieve not only optimum oral health and a stronger bite, but also a natural looking, radiant smile that will endure for years with proper maintenance. By combining and customizing such options as porcelain crowns, tooth bonding, laser gum treatments, and porcelain veneers, both health and beauty can be restored to even the most badly damaged mouth.

Prosthodontics

Prosthodontics is a highly specialized branch of dentistry that involves the restoration and replacement of teeth, as well as the treatment and maintenance of the upper jaw and adjacent oral tissues. As with cosmetic dentistry, prosthodontics is a sophisticated blend of art and science, the ultimate aim of which is to facilitate oral function and dramatically improve the health and appearance of the patient. In order to be certified, a prosthodontist must complete three years of intensive graduate-level training in an institution accredited by the American Dental Association. It is rare, indeed, for a dental practice to feature under one roof both an acclaimed cosmetic dentist and prosthodontic expert.

Since 1996, esteemed prosthodontist David J. Kopecki has been restoring health, beauty, and function to the mouths of our patients. During this time, Dr. Kopecki has earned the praise and respect of peers and patients alike for achieving consistently first-rate results in even the most challenging cases. Indeed, Dr. Kopecki welcomes the opportunity to work with patients whose dental problems other dentists might find too complex or difficult, yet another advantage that distinguishes Exton Dental Health Group and The Pennsylvania Center For Cosmetic Dentistry.

We invite you to discover for yourself why Dr. David J. Kopecki is considered one of the finest practitioners in restorative dentistry and prosthodontics. Convenient from Philadelphia, the Main Line, Lancaster, West Chester, and surrounding communities, Exton Dental Health Group and The Pennsylvania Center For Cosmetic Dentistry is always pleased to welcome new patients to our practice. If you have any questions about prosthetic dentistry or would like to schedule an appointment with our prosthodontic expert, please contact Exton Dental today.

Fixed Dental Bridges

For patients who are missing one or more of their original teeth, Dr. Kopecki also offers the option of fixed dental bridges. Crafted from strong, durable porcelain, dental bridges restore not only the appearance but also the health of the mouth, returning strength to the bite and preventing natural teeth from shifting into the gaps left by missing teeth. Comprised of one or more artificial teeth supported by crowns on either end, bridges are fixed into place so that they are perfectly secure, so that patients can eat, speak, and smile with absolute confidence. Dr. Kopecki takes extreme care in customizing dental bridges for his patients, ensuring that they fit comfortably and perfectly complement the surrounding natural teeth. With proper maintenance, fixed dental bridges of such surpassing quality can last for many years.



Dental Implants

One of the truly extraordinary advancements in dental technology, dental implants provide an outstanding, long-term solution to missing teeth, a solution that many of our patients find ideal. Made of pure titanium, dental implants are artificial tooth roots that are placed into the jaw, where they serve as secure anchors onto which a single restoration, a bridge, or a full set of dentures can be attached. Since joining Exton Dental in 1996, Dr. David J. Kopecki has earned a reputation for crafting restorations of impeccable quality to be placed on dental implants of his patients from suburban Philadelphia, the Main Line, West Chester, Lancaster, and other communities throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania. Dr. Kopecki does not perform the dental implant surgery himself, but works in coordination with the region's most talented and respected oral surgeons. As a result, patients can be assured that the natural looking restorations Dr. Kopecki creates for them will be supported by implants of equally impressive quality.

Although the process of placing dental implants into the mouth is a lengthy one, requiring several months to complete, it is also one of the most popular among patients with missing teeth. This is because dental implants offer a number of practical advantages over other tooth replacement methods. For instance, when used to replace individual missing teeth, dental implants do not depend on surrounding natural teeth for support, which helps to maintain the structural integrity of those existing teeth. In addition, they require no special maintenance beyond the sensible oral hygiene regimen and regular dental visits that are necessary to preserve the health of natural teeth. Furthermore, because they are embedded in the jaw, they are as close to an exact replacement for missing teeth as is possible. The procedure of placing dental implants is safe and effective, with one of the highest success rates of any dental surgery.

To ensure that your dental implants meet the highest standards in the industry, Exton Dental Health Group and The Pennsylvania Center For Cosmetic Dentistry works with only the finest oral surgeons. These surgeons perform the actual dental implant surgery, placing the implants using general anesthetic if necessary for the comfort and overall satisfaction of the patient. Dr. Kopecki then places the restorations onto the implants. Of course, because Dr. Kopecki is one of the preeminent prosthodontists in his profession, you can rely on results that are aesthetic, natural looking, and of the highest possible quality. If you are missing one or more of your natural teeth and would like to schedule an appointment with Dr. Kopecki to find out more about the option of dental implants, please contact Exton Dental Health Group and The Pennsylvania Center For Cosmetic Dentistry today.



Correction of Sleep Apnea and Snoring

Many people accept snoring as, at worst, an annoyance; yet, even moderate snoring can be an indication of a serious breathing disorder. Often, snoring is a symptom of sleep apnea, a potentially dangerous condition that involves involuntary pauses in breathing of 10 seconds or more during sleep. Most people who suffer from moderate to severe snoring or sleep apnea are unaware of their problem, which is a function of an obstructed airway. If left untreated, such sleeping disorders can lead to a variety of health problems, including fatigue, poor memory function, and intense headaches, as well as more serious complications.

Thankfully, Dr. Kopecki is able to treat sleep apnea easily and painlessly with a specially crafted appliance that holds the tongue forward in the mouth. This appliance helps to clear the airway, effectively treating snoring and sleep apnea. As a result, patients who are fitted with this device feel healthier, livelier, and more fully rested during their waking hours.

If you or someone you love suffers from snoring or sleep apnea, Dr. Kopecki can help you sleep more safely and soundly. For more information about treatment of these breathing disorders or about restorative dentistry and prosthodontics in general, residents of suburban Philadelphia, the Main Line, West Chester, Lancaster, and surrounding areas are encouraged to contact our dental office in Exton today.
