Dental Implant Therapy

Dental Implant Therapy​  -  The loss of teeth and gum tissue is a matter of fact that most people will deal with over time as we age. Our practice is focused on providing the finest in Dental Implant innovations for patients throughout Buck's County, and the surrounding Pennsylvania area. Modern dental implants are usually based in a biologic process called osseointegration where materials, such as titanium, form an intimate bond to bone. The implant fixture is first placed, so that it is likely to osseointegrate, then a dental prosthetic is added.

A variable amount of healing time is required for osseointegration before either the dental prosthetic (a tooth, bridge or denture) is attached to the implant or an abutment is placed which will hold a dental prosthetic. Dr. Jean Bichara, with over 16 years of clinical and pratical experience in Bucks County providing the latest techniques and equipment to ensure that your treatments and recovery will be as quick and care free as possible.


In general, anyone healthy enough to undergo a routine dental extraction or oral surgery can be considered for an implant procedure. Patients should have healthy gums and adequate bone to hold the implant and be committed to good oral hygiene and regular dental exams. Heavy smokers, people suffering from uncontrolled chronic disorders such as diabetes or heart disease, or patients who have had radiation therapy to the head/neck area need to be evaluated on an individual basis.


Endodontic Failure Therapy

Endodontic Failure Therapy -  Endodontic failure caused by inadequate restorative procedures. Endodontic therapy or root canal therapy is a sequence of treatment for the infected pulp of a tooth which results in the elimination of infection and the protection of the decontaminated tooth from future microbial invasion.
​When root canals fail, there can be a reoccurence of pain and discomfort, there are some cases in which the treatment has followed the highest standards yet still results in failure. In most of the cases, the endodontic failure results from persistent or secondary intraradicular infection. 

Causes of endodontic treatment failure may be fractures of dental hard tissues, insufficient techniques used in root canal treatment or, in most cases, persistent or recurrent endodontic infection (intraradicular or extraradicular)

Periodontal (Gum) Therapy

Periodontal (Gum) Disease is a leading cause of tooth loss and may be associated with other chronic illnesses, including Diabetes and Heart Disease. Gum disease, an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth, is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not notice you have it. Also referred to as periodontal disease, gum disease is caused by plaque, the sticky film of bacteria that is constantly forming on our teeth.

Our Periodontal (Gum) Therapy services provide you with a variety of the latest techniques, technologies, and medical advancements in pain free applications. Providing Buck's County with the best, most professional services availabe.

There are several reasons why contacting Dr Bichara for periodontal treatment may be necessary:

  • Moderate/advanced gum disease – This occurs when the gums are bleeding, swollen or red around most teeth and the jawbone has begun to recede.

  • Localized gum recession – The infection which propagates moderate or advanced gum disease often begins in one area.  Gum recession may also be caused due to over brushing with a hard bristle brush, or due to a tooth that is not positioned properly.  Immediate treatment is required to prevent further spreading.

  • Before crown lengthening – The periodontist may lengthen the crown of the tooth by removing surrounding soft tissue to provide more tooth exposure.

  • Ridge augmentation – This procedure, often called “recontouring” may be required to correct an uneven gum line.  Before embarking on treatment, a periodontist needs to treat any bacterial infections and periodontitis.
