Dental implants are titanium posts similar to tooth roots that are surgically positioned and used in the restoration or replacement of missing teeth, bridges, and their supporting structures.
Artificial prostheses will be anchored to your jawbone beneath the gum line, and this will allow our dentist to mount or hold a replacement tooth or a bridge into that area to match your natural teeth.
Dental implants are an option for people who lost their teeth due to periodontal diseases, injuries, or some other reason.
The advantages of dental implants include:
- Improved speech
- Easier eating
- Improved oral health
- Increased self-esteem
- Durability and convenience
Consultation with our dentist will be needed to determine if implants are right for you. Our professional will examine your teeth and gums thoroughly to evaluate bone density as well as its quantity. X-rays or CT scans will be taken to ensure there is adequate bone structure for introducing the implants and to decide accurately where the dental implant should be positioned.
Based on your mouth’s condition, our dentist will advise the most appropriate dental implantation treatment plan. Those with insufficient bone or gum tissue may require bone or soft tissue grafts and mini-implants. You can discuss any type of implant that may be needed with our expert.
After deciding on the steps of the procedure, your dental professional will advise you about the entire treatment process, the length of the procedure, the various appointments that will need to be scheduled, and what you can look forward to after each procedure.
Our dentist will discuss other options with you, including the possibilities of sedation dentistry or the use of local anesthesia that will numb the affected and surrounding areas. If you’re needing dental implants in Bayonne NJ, contact our office today!
