Advanta Dental
Advanta Dental is the Scranton Dentist who provides painless extractions and excellent dental service!!!Due to a mix of financial hardship and a deep fear of the dentist, it had been a while since I had been to the dentist. Needless to say I had a lot of work that needed to be done. Dr. Rahm took amazing care of my teeth! I actually got to the point where I looked forward to going.Dr. Rahm and his entire staff are extremely friendly. They make you feel like you are part of the "family." I have always been greeted with smiles and personal questions of how my family and I have been doing. With all this great service, their rates were extremely competitive with other dentists! I would recommend Advanta Dental to everyone!

My visit to this office was very pleasant . Dr. Rahm and his staff are very professional and comforting.My treatment was explained to me step by step and was pain free. The office was very clean and relaxing. I will definitely be going to Dr Rahm for all of my future treatment and cleanings. His prices are very decent and payment options are made available. His work is wonderful and he is very knowledgeable. HIGHLY RECOMEND.....

Great friendly staff! I live out of state and had a tooth chip. They were able to get me in the same day and look at it. Unfortunately due to my insurance being out of network the cost was going to be expensive so the doctor recommended I wait until I was home so insurance would cover it. The staff made me feel very comfortable and I would recommend them if you need a dentist.

Well I am one of the few people out there that do not mind going to the dentist. But I still wanted to review Dr. Umerich. I went to him a few times and I have to say he is really nice, very knowledgeable and makes you feel very comfortable. I did not even feel it when he gave me a needle. He explains what should be done. His staff was friendly also.

I think he's a wonderful dentist. I am actually surprised to read these reviews. I feel like we are talking about a different person but we are not. He is caring and very helpful. His office is not a dirty hole in the wall. And I've never had a problem with call back's. I would recommend him to anyone!!

Tips & Advices
This depends on the prosthetic.
  • Dental implants, when cared for properly, can last a lifetime.
  • Crowns typically last between 10-15 years.
  • Resin-bonded bridges typically last between seven  and 10 years. Tooth-supported fixed bridges generally wear out faster than this.
  • Removable partial dentures typically last around 15 years.
  • Complete dentures typically last between five and six years.
The entire process for adding dental implants could take as long as eight months. There are three phases:
  • Phase 1: Grafting. This may take between three and six  months.
  • Phase 2: Artificial root placement. This may take one to two  hours to complete and will take between three and six  months to heal.
  • Phase 3: Crown placement. This is usually done over the course of two visits, two weeks apart.
One dental implant typically costs $1,000-$3,000. However, the abutment (a connector added onto the top of a dental implant) and crown can add $500-$3,000. Multiple dental implants may cost $3,000-$30,000. A full set of implant dentures may cost as much as $90,000, though the average is around $34,000.
A dental implant is a titanium post shaped like a natural tooth's root that is surgically inserted into the jawbone beneath the gums. These posts allow dentists to secure a replacement tooth or bridge in the correct position.
Maxillofacial prosthesis is a subspecialty of prosthodontics. A maxillofacial prosthesis is meant to rehabilitate patients who have defects or disabilities due to trauma, disease, or those that a patient is has from birth. The prosthesis is designed to replace parts of the bone or tissue that are missing, or to help restore functions of the mouth, such as swallowing, chewing, or speaking. Other prostheses are created to protect the face during radiation therapy. Dentists that work with maxillofacial prostheses often collaborate closely with ear, nose, and throat doctors.
