Dental Implants – Pennsylvania Oral Surgery & Dental Implant Centers



People are living longer than ever, and while regular brushing, flossing, and checkups allow many of us to maintain our natural smiles for a lifetime, sometimes our teeth just can’t keep up. If you’ve lost a tooth (or a few teeth) due to injury or disease, dental implants can rejuvenate both your smile and your oral health.

An implant is a synthetic tooth root in the shape of a post that is surgically placed into the jawbone. The “root” is usually made of titanium: the same material used in many replacement hips and knees, and a metal that is well-suited to pairing with human bone. A replacement tooth is then fixed to the post. The tooth can be either permanently attached or removable. Permanent teeth are more stable and feel more like natural teeth.

The ideal candidate for implants is a non-smoker who has good oral health, including

Oral Gepants Have Disrupted Acute Migraine Management and Look Next to Transform Preventive Treatment, According to Both Primary Care Physicians and Specialists | Surveys Polls And Research

EXTON, Pa., May 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Both AbbVie’s (formerly Allergan, an AbbVie company) Ubrelvy and Biohaven’s Nurtec ODT are viewed by primary care physicians (PCPs) as strong entrants into the acute segment of the migraine market following their early 2020 launches. Interestingly, a new study from Spherix found similar physician-reported shares for both gepants [i.e., oral calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptor antagonists], despite Ubrelvy’s earlier launch.  

In the inaugural semiannual report included in Spherix’s RealTime Dynamix™: Migraine – PCP Perspective (US) service, data collected from 96 PCPs found that, of the two gepants, direct comparison gives Nurtec ODT the advantage over Ubrelvy on most clinical metrics. Nurtec ODT best differentiates from Ubrelvy on duration of effect and convenience of patient administration among PCPs, consistent with its prevention label currently under FDA review and its unique orally dissolving tablet formulation, respectively.

Spherix has also been tracking the specialist-treated (i.e.,

Upcoming Oral, Small Molecule Agents Expected to Leapfrog Existing Biologic Treatment and Become Foundational Inflammatory Bowel Disease Therapies | Surveys Polls And Research

EXTON, Pa., March 24, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Spherix recently surveyed 100 US gastroenterologists and followed up with seven qualitative interviews (including an industry key opinion leader) in order to assess the current pre-advanced systemic treatment algorithm for inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), along with the prospects for several oral, small molecule pipeline therapies. This new Special Topix™ service was created in response to the three oral, small molecule therapies currently in Phase 3 development for the treatment of IBD and the additional three therapies with Phase 2 clinical data.

Through ongoing research provided in Spherix’s core services offered in IBD, Spherix experts began to notice a possible paradigm shift in the way gastroenterologists are perceiving upcoming pipeline agents and how they intend on prescribing to biologic-naïve patients. The combination of qualitative and quantitative research included in the Special Topix™ service evaluates, in detail, the current treatment algorithm for pre-advanced systemic

Dentists, Orthodontists, and Other Oral Health Care Providers

Many different types of oral health care providers could become involved in the care of your teeth, gums, and mouth. A brief description of these various health care providers is as follows:

General Dentist

A general dentist is your primary care dental provider. This dentist diagnoses, treats, and manages your overall oral health care needs, including gum care, root canals, fillings, crowns, veneers, bridges, and preventive education.

All practicing general dentists have earned either a DDS or DMD degree (doctor of dental surgery or doctor of dental medicine, respectively). There is no difference between the two degrees or the curriculum requirements that dentists must meet. Some schools simply award the one degree, while others award the other.

Generally, three or more years of undergraduate education plus four years of dental school is required to become a general dentist. Additional post-graduate training is required to become a dental specialist.
